Wash Day Saga - Another Day Another Wash

Hey lovies,

Hope you had a great, relaxing weekend. I spent mine recharging my batteries and I am raring to go this week.

Wash day this last weekend was simple, quick and easy. Like I said when the year began, this year I am all about keeping it simple to make sure I retain all my length this year and don't need to resort to frequent trimming like last year.

Without any further ado, here's my #washday experience...
The #WashDayExperience
1. My hair was in box braids that I was wearing under my wig. So I just kept in the box braids for the wash day. I first prepooed with coconut oil under my wig while I was at work

2. Overnight DC with a conditioner whose name I keep forgetting to look up :"). All I know is that it is a moisturising conditioner.

3. In the morning I rinsed out the conditioner, and massaged my scalp to lift up the gunk that had built up there. Then I did a scalp wash using African black soap, and rinsed that off.

4. I wrapped my hair in a t-shirt to absorb excess moisture. When my hair was damp, I just sealed in the moisture using vaseline. When my hair was 80% dry, I took down the box braids, and finger combed my hair. The vaseline really helped, as my hair was supple and I didn't experience short strand breakage.

That was my wash day. Keeping to the theme of keeping it simple. How was your washday?


  1. Sounds like you had a smooth washday, awesome sauce! :-) Are you going to put the braids back in any time soon?

    1. No I am not putting the braids back in yet. I am doing inversions and MN so maybe in March

  2. Loving this simple wash day! Do you moisturize your braids under your wig or is your hair good to go for a week after wash day?

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. I just mist the braids with water under my wig when the ends feel crunchy. Otherwise, my hair is usually good to go for the rest of the week :)

  3. Sounds like a very easy way day! I hate when I have buildup because I feel as if my scalp is still not clean
