French Braid Wash Day…

[1]   Scalp massage with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (warmed) for 4 mins. Applied EVCO all
       over my hair and sat under my heat cap for 35mins. Have you noticed I have been doing
       scalp massages weekly?
[2]   Deep Conditioned on dry hair with my Queen Helene Cholesterol mixture warmed for 
       40 mins under my heat cap on top of the oil.
[3]   Rinsed and applied Aphogee 2 mins Reconstructor for 5 mins without heat and rinsed.
My hair is in  French Braid
[4]   Wrapped my hair in a T-shirt for 1 hour and a half while I caught up on the last 2 episodes

       of “The Haves and Have Nots” written by Tyler Perry. I really like this show, if you haven’t 
       seen it yet, go ahead and download it, as it shows on OWN TV – Oprah Winfrey Network.

[5]   Once my hair was 90% dry I sprayed all of my roots with Mane n Tail detangler. Then 
       applied my leave in conditioner of Aphogee Keratin & Green Tea Restructurizer, Aussie            Moist Conditioner, Herbal Essences Split End Protector and sealed with Extra Virgin 
       Olive oil.  I didn't have alot of single strands knots this wash day which is a relief.     
       Detangling was manageable this week with no hassle.

I say under my hooded dryer on low heat this week again for 20 mins because outside looked gloomy and I didn't want to get a cold due to my roots being wet for a long period of time. My roots were dry and my ends dried eventually which was fine.

[6]   I oiled my scalp with Jamaican Black Castor Oil  and Moisturized my hair with Elasta QP 
       Olive Oil & Mango Butter and sealed with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The following morning I 
       placed a part on the side of my hair, sprayed my moisturizing mixture on the hair around 
       the part, followed with Ampro Pro Styl  Gel, placed my hair in a bun and tied down my                hair for an hour and headed out to church afterwards. I wore my hair in a bun over the
       last 2-3 weeks so I decided to rock a French braid this week. It's not the neatest but you
       get the idea.

  1. Hey Tomi! Your NG looks so soft and moisturized! Reading this post reminds me that I need to invest in a heating cap! Your wash day looks great and I love your french braid. I still have some episodes to catch up on with the Haves and Have Nots, too. I'm in the middle of the latest season still lol.

  2. If that's not a neat french braid then I don't know what is! My french braids always look "tousled"---which is a chic way of say MESSY! Haha!

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience chica!
