Another wash day came, and I actually washed my hair. I really need to work on being less lazy.
Since I hadn't washed my hair for 2 weeks, I decided to do a clarifying wash, with my hair loose to get rid of all the build up. Here's what happened...
1. I did an overnight deep conditioning treatment using a mix of ORS Replenishing conditioner and ORS Curls Unleashed Take Command Curl Creme. The curl cream first 5 ingredients are mostly butters and oils, and I figured that would be an excellent conditioner boost.
2. I rinsed out the conditioner with warm water and applied shampoo to my scalp. I wanted to use up all my teeny hotel shampoos so that's what I used. After lathering my scalp, I also lathered my hair to get rid of build up. I rinsed out the shampoo and wrapped my hair in a t-shirt to absorb excess moisture
3. When my hair wasn't dripping anymore, I applied castor oil to my ends and did a quick ponytail. I let my hair airdry in this for the rest of the day.
4. When my hair was dry, I massaged my scalp with miconazole nitrate and did the inversion method. I also did my protective style of the week, which is two huge cornrows.
Side note: Its interesting to see that people think my hair is natural when I am in these braids. I have to tell them I am very lightly relaxed. Hmmm, maybe I should process my hair more when I do my touch up in September. Or maybe not, I like my hair like this, and I enjoy having thickness. I don't want a stringy ponytail just because I'm so obsessed with showing length, I overprocess my relaxer.
Anyway, how was your own wash day?
