Wash day | Moisture boost #week 2

This week’s highlight was moisture levels

[1] Sectioned hair in 3 and pre-pooed with coconut oil, and walnut oil on my scalp, each section was then braided.

[2] Put hair in heat cap for 30 minutes, and detangled

[3] DC on dry hair with Aunt Jackie’s Anti Poof Softening and Moisturising Conditioner, and added ORS Replenishing conditioner to my ends, used heat cap for 1 hour, and detangled

 [4] Shampooed hair with Elasta QP crème and conditioning Shampoo mixed with walnut oil, rosemary essential oil and peppermint essential oil and diluted

[5] Tea Rinsed with ginger tea and added HEHH conditioner for 5 mins. Rinsed

 [5] T-shirt dried hair for 30 mins.

[6] Sprayed Aussie Hair Miracle Insurance Leave in and coconut oil to each section and left it to air dry for 3 hour, detangled then tension blow dried my head on cool air.

[7] M&S with ORS Carrot Oil and a serum. (L = leave in O = coconut C = Carrot oil O=serum method)

[8] PS for this week see below, relaxer girl version of the TWA popular style

    1. I love tension blow dryer. I definitely like the results much much more than air drying,

  2. Love the Aussie Moist leave-in especially when I have my braids. Thanks for Sharing=)

    1. I have never used it with braids, but I can so see how it would be great! Thanks for the comment! ;)

  3. I could never get my halo braid to look decent. Great protective styles, your ends are well protected.

    1. Thanks Tomes, this is a real cheat of a halo braid, minus all the braiding!

  4. I love this up-do. I have been so lazy about buying my coconut oil. Nice post! New follower.

  5. This is a really cool look!
