Wash Day #1

This was the first wash day after my relaxer. About half way in the week my scalp was super itchy. I thought of washing my hair on Thursday but time was tight, my scalp continued to itchy, and closer examination I had dandruff.

I have not had dandruff in a while, I wonder if it was my new relaxer 'Luster Pink'. I absolutely loved the results I got with my texture eith this relaxer, but my scalp might not be too keen.

Ok so my wash day went something like this

[1] Prepooed my scalp and hair with an oil mixer I have I believe it's castor oil, rosemary, peppermint, lavender and grapeseed oil. Placed a heat cap and plastic bag and scarf for 3 hours.

[2] Shampooed my hair twice with dilute L'Oreal Hair Expertise Eversleek Smoothing & Moisturising No Sulphite shampoo.

[3] T-shirt drier hair for 15 mins and detangled

[4] Applied Maroochi Miracle - Macadamia butter Intensive conditioning Treatment. On first appliction the conditiiner does not have the best slip, the smell is very cocoa/coffee, the smell lingers on even after washing. The great thing about it is it sinks right into the hair strands. I detangled again and put on my heat cap, plastic bag and shower cap and left it on for 2 hours.

[5] I rinsed out the conditioners with cool water and t-shirt dried my hair for 30 minutes

[6] I sprayed Aussie Hair Miracle Insurance leave in conditioner and detangked. I left my hair to air dry in a bun.

After my wash day I moisturised my hair with Herbal Essence Beautiful ends and sealed it with coconut oil. I really loved the results from my new conditioner, though the smell really does linger on for a while.

I cornrowed my hair in 4 cornrows and left my front hair and have been wearing my instant weave, this will be my style this week.

How did your wash day go? Has anyone had issueswith changing relaxer brands?

  1. Seems like you had a good wash day! No telling what could have caused the dandruff ... it's wintertime and if the wind blows my hair decides to behave badly! :)

    1. Man do I hate the winter time! Will have my hair under a wig this week.

  2. Hi Yvonne, your wash day was pretty good. As for dandruff, I usually get them the week after a relaxer but not any other time after that. I think its because of the harsh chemicals in the relaxer.

    1. I guess that makes sense to have it the week after a relaxer, will look at for it this week as well
