Wash day!!

Crochet braids on right. 
And the take down on the left
(dry looking hair I know)
Hey you,

Yes my first official post is the "wash day" I don't see why not. I get to share how my not-so special wash day looks like.
I had crochet braids on for 3 weeks and my scalp was becoming very itchy so I decided to take them down and thus wash day. And this was an opportunity for me to take pictures of certain steps I take while preparing and washing my hair.

I have notice that my hair does not like to be hidden for long no matter how much I try to keep it moisturised, that's another topic on it's own. 
After taking my braids down I started to unravel my corn row and de-tangle the hair by each row which was a breeze unlike taking them all down and de-tangling the whole head after.

The products that I usually use, 
some more than others.
These are the products I used on this wash day.

  • Tresemme Naturals Conditioner (detangling,prepoo)(Pick n Pay)
  • African Pride Olive Miracle Growth Oil(prepoo)(Clicks)
  • AfroBotanic Black Pearl Shampoo(Game)
  • Original Formula Deep Penetrating Rosemary Hair Masque (dc)(Spar,r14.99)
  • Dr. Miracles Leave In Conditioner(Clicks)

I de-tangled using Tresemme Naturals Conditioner which made the hair slippery and moisturising. Being very lazy to wash my hair past midnight(don't ask), I left my hair as is and applied the oil on top of the conditioner put on a plastic bag and left it over night.

(you can never go 
wrong with that)

I washed my hair the next morning with the shampoo , it did not dry my hair out at all thanks to the prepoo . I then deep conditioned with the hair masque,it smell like pudding FYI. I must say I was nervous using it on my hair, it was my first time and the results were good, the smell lasts on your hair. 

I applied the masque with a bit of coconut oil, put on my plastic bag and wrapped a hot towel on top of it then covered with my shower cap. I left it on for about 15-20 minutes, the bottle says 10 minutes or more and rinsed my hair. I towel dried it and then applied the leave in conditioner, blow dried using the tension method and I was done!

I sleep with my hair in chunky twists to keep it stretched. Yes proper wash days are very long but I think they provide your hair a lot of tlc, this is not my usual routine I was trying something new. I am busy editing the video for this post so stay tune.

Thank you for reading my long wash day, I hope you enjoyed it, don't forget to comment. Until the next post God bless...
