Simple Wash Day…

I have been keeping my wash days pretty simple recently, let’s dive into it:

[1]   Scalp massage with Extra Virgin Olive Oil with (warmed) for 3mins. Applied EVOO to the
       rest my hair for 30mins with heat. Although EVOO is heavy for my strands, my hair was
       dry and I felt my hair needed a thicker oil to quench my strands. When I took my heat cap
       off I couldn't find majority of the oil as it had sunk into my strands.
Aunt Jackie's Moisturizing & Softening Conditioner
[2]   I let my hair cool for 5mins and applied the Aunt Jackie’s Moisturizing & Softening
       Conditioner for 30mins with heat on top of the oil.  While rinsing out the conditioner my 

        hair felt like silk and so hydrated. My first impression of this conditioner is that it does 
       what it says, it moisturizes your thirty hair. The smell is floral and can become annoying 
       after a while. The smell lingers for a little while after rinsing out the product.
[3]   Applied Aphogee 2 mins reconstructor for 2mins and rinsed.
[4]   Wrapped my hair in a T-shirt for 45mins to dry. Once my hair was 80% dry I sprayed all 
       of my roots with Mane n Tail detangler. Then applied my leave in conditioner of Aussie 
       Moist Conditioner, Herbal Essences Split End Protector and sealed with Hot Six oil. I
       detangled my hair with ease and only because of the Mane n Tail detangler.

I’m 9 weeks post and really enjoying this stretch.  9weeks down and 9 more weeks to go.

[5]   The following day I oiled my scalp with Jamaican Black Castor Oil . Moisturized my hair 
       with Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter and sealed with Hot Six Oil.
