Wash Day Diary

Wash Day Diary

I woke up randomly at 3 am, on Saturday morning and I couldn’t go back to sleep. Three things crossed my mind, write a new post for the blog, wash your hair or read a book. All three options required me to get up so I didn’t. Rather, I stayed in bed till quarter past 3 playing Juice Jam. In my dreary state, I finally chose to wash my hair so I got up and pushed myself to the bathroom to select which products I would use. The following are what I ended up with;

  • Carols Daughter Cleansing Conditioner
  • Giovanni Peppermint Shampoo
  • Obia Naturals Deep Babassu Conditioner
  • and Hawaiian Silky 14 in 1 Miracle Worker

My hair was under a shower cap as I had pre-pooed and finger detangled before going to bed. I was seriously considering leaving my hair under that shower cap and rocking a headwrap to church but I thought, “hey, I haven’t washed my hair in a month and three days, surely if I postponed washing it today, it would be difficult for me to find another opportunity to do so anytime soon.”

So, I applied Carols daughter Cleansing Conditioner directly on my scalp and massaged it a little to loosen any dead skin cells and product buildup. Let me quickly add that, even after so long without washing my hair, it did not feel very dirty or have any odd smell. That is why I chose a cleansing conditioner first but after rinsing it out with warm water, I used my finger to lightly scratch my scalp and some buildup went under my nails.

Preferentially, I like that squeaky, freshly washed hair feeling so I decided to use a little Giovanni Peppermint Shampoo to clarify my hair. After I was through with that, I gently squeezed out the excess water from my big twists and then applied Obia Naturals Deep Babassu Conditioner (I’m in love with this product).

I couldn’t find my apple cider vinegar bottle so I skipped this step and rinsed my hair with cold water.

Next, I squeezed out the excess water with my cotton t-shirt and styled my hair using only Hawaiian Silky 14 in 1 miracle worker. I re-twisted and allowed it to air dry.

I began at 3:24 am and finished at 6:56 am.
