Wash Day - New product Alert

Hello Beauties. Warm regards and greetings to you all. Although I haven't been posting much I've been deligently washing my hair every two weeks. Then mini twisting it into a top bun. Pretty boring stuff. Plus I've been super busy with work, school and taking care of my sick baby girl so as the saying goes No rest for the willing.
This wash day was quite laborious but I needed to give my hair much needed TLC as a way of saying thanks for being so well behaved even when I haven't even been doing the bare minimum.

Now for the deets on my wash day:

PREPOO - Ayuvedic Herbs powder mix of Shikakai, Brahmi, Binghraj, Hibiscus, Fenugreek and Marshmallow root. I wanted to also do a coffee rinse but did not feel like adding an extra step so I threw some grounded coffee in the mix then boiled everything in 2 cups of filtered water. Applied to my hair is 10 sections then braided and left in overnight.

COWASH- Because I used a lot of Shikakai powder in the Pre-poo stage I didn't feel compelled to use a shampoo this week. Shikakai has natural cleansing properties. So the next morning I used Carol's Daughter Hair Milk Cleansing conditioner to co-wash all the gunk out.  My strands were in slip city!

DEEP CONDITIONER - Alikay Naturals Honey and Sage DC + SM Manuka Honey & Marula oil DC with 2 Tbs. Castor oil + peppermint oil. Left in for approx 4 hours.

FINAL RINSE -  Apple Cider Vinegar + Aloe Vera juice. I poured this straight from the fridge. Oh MY Freezing Gawd. NEVER AGAIN!!!! I was shaking like a frigging leaf in my shower!

 T-shirt wrapped my hair to get out excess water. I had a bummed wash day 2 weeks ago and was complaining about the tangles and brittleness Suave clarifying shampoo did to my hair. My coworker recommended I try the Creme of Nature Argan oil Perfect 7 leave in . It sounded eerily similar to the It's a 10 leave in which I heart!!! sans the price of course :(  so I went out and got it for this wash as I planned to flat Iron my hair for an event.

LEAVE-INS - Lotion - CON Argan oil Perfect 7 
Cream- Cantu Shea butter conditioning leave in and Carols daughter Hair milk moisturizing lotion. 
Oil - Garnier Fructise Sleek & Shine Anti-frizz Serum.
This smells so delicious. I cannot stop burying my face in my hair. lol
As far as product performance I was definitely impressed. It left my hair feeling soft; fluffed & moisturized and detangling was easy peasy! It's also a heat protectant and has some proteins. 

Flat ironed my hair on 310 degrees. Maintained it by cross wrapping.

Castor oil has definitely been doing my hair a whole lot of good. Even with flat ironed hair I still maintain thickness. I'll be using it religiously even after the 3 month period is over.
I hope you ladies had much success with your wash day. And join in on the link up party #washDayExperience

By the Way - Happy Birthday to the #WashdayExperience. Time goes by fast when you're having fun. lol
Congrats to KLP and Jen for such a successful link up!

  1. Great flat iron results. I love castor oil for my scalp.

  2. Hope baby girl is feeling better sending hugs her way! I am on a CON Argan oil shopping spree this month and now I have one more product to consider lol. Your flat iron looks great. Castor oil is the business my full hair line is thanks to it..ACV/AVJ straight from the fridge what were you thinking hahahhahahahaha that must have been freezing!

  3. Your flat turned out so nice! I'm a huge fan of CON products. I haven't tried the leave-in conditioner as yet but I do have it under my bathroom sink so I'll definitely give it a try now :)

    Next time, just make the ACV mix right before you hop in the shower so you can pour it over your head. Poor thing!
