Wash Day | 9 weeks post

This week was an interesting wash day. Tried 2 new products which worked brilliantly! So this is how my wash day went:



[1] Section my hair in 4 and applied coconut oil, you know the warmer season is here when you have liquid coconut oil. I used a heat cap for 45 minutes with a heated cloth.


[2] Shampooed my hair with an all-natural shampoo bar! It is the Funky Soap Shop - Nettle and Marshmallow root shampoo bar. It texture is much gooey and softer than a normal soap bar, and it doesn’t lather up as well, but can I tell you once it was lathered and in my hair oh lawd! The moisturising effect and bye bye difficult to handle new growth, the Instruction say to let it sit for 10 mins, after 10 mins I rinsed it out and I really could have skipped my DC, but let’s not get carried away right! Will need to use it a few more times. (More detailed review to follow)

[3] DC with Aunt Jackie’s Anti Poof DC overnight, was going to rinse it out the say day, but fell asleep and no way was I going to be doing wash day at midnight

[4] Rinsed conditioner

[5] Using 1 part aloe vera juice and 2 parts water and 2 tb lemon, I sprayed over my hair and left it to drip and then t-shirt dried my hair for 45mins. Question for aloe vera rinse ladies, do you just spritz a bit or drench your hair like during tea rinse procedure? Or is it something in between?

[6] Tried to roller set my hair with bands at the roots, but the bands I got were pulling at my hair, so opted for flexirod, but before I get to my results, the aloe vera lemon final rinse, wow wow, my hair was on another planet this wash day, honestly like why have I never tried this rinse before, I didn’t need any leave in or any butter moisturiser, all I did was seal my hair with grapeseed oil (seal in all the goodness) and carried on with my flexriod.

After my flexirods were out, boy I was feeling myself a million bucks after tax!!

 

Was feeling so good even made some drop 
donuts 






They were yummy, I digress. Keeping up with this weeks bun theme, my week PS was a bun with flat 2 strand twists in the front

  6. Aaahh I LOVE it, Yvonne!! Your curls are pretty! I'm so glad the aloe vera juice rinse worked well for you, too. It will change your hair's life! Lbs its amazing. When I do the rinse, I fill my spray bottle (it's about 5 oz) and use the whole thing on my head. So it's safe to say my hair is pretty saturated by it. Then I either let it drip or just let it sit for a few minutes before squeezing the excess out. Hope that helps!
