Wash Day - 15 Weeks Post- Braidout

Hey ladies,

It's washday Wednesday and all roads lead to KLP of Savingourstrands.com and Jen of justgrowalready.com. I get so much life from these wonderful ladies who participate in this link up....from products to techniques to styling ideas. Come join us as we discuss healthy hair practices and support each other.

Without further ado lets gets into my washday!!!

Objective: To maintain my moisture grove and keep NG stretched


  • Pre-Pooed  - mix of oils - Amla, castor, coconut, hemp, Orange Eo, Rosemary EO, tea tree EO
  • Shampooed - skipped this step because next week is clarify and protein
  • DC Aussie Moist 3 minute miracle + Suave naturals Rosemary mint Conditioner +Banana
  • Steamed for 20 mins. then rinsed with cool water
  • Tea+Oil+ACV rinse- For the sake of time I tried something a little unorthodox and it turned out pretty darn good. My tea of choice was Rooibos as it does not harden my hair. Steeped 2 cups with 1tbsp Olive oil, aloe vera juice and ACV with Eucalyptus oil. Lawdamercy my scalp was in ecstacy. ** This was my final rinse I did not rinse again after this**
  • T-shirt wrapped hair to get out excess water
  • Applied leave-ins Garnier Fructis sleek and shine to length of hair + Biolage Keratindose to ends and sealed with Hairitage Hydration Castor Infusion.
  • Air dried hair in 4 plaits
  • Once air dried I moisturized my NG with HH coconut marshmallow detangle and sealed it with HH castor infusion then coconut oil - I've started MS-ing my NG and it's been working out pretty awesome to the point that it stays moisturized for at least 5 days.
  • I undid the braids and was left with a nice braid out.

Final Thoughts:

My hair was pretty happy this week. I tried a few things differently( 3 in 1 rinse) and
Moisturizing and sealing my NG that proved to be a home run. AND I rocked a braid( I'm not a fan
Of braid outs and most low-manipulation styles) but it was Morher's Day and I wanted something different, plus it stretched my NG. I Noticed some obnoxious split ends trying to make a comeback - will be shutting them down next wash day.

Have an awesome rest of the week and don't forget to LOL- Love out Loud
