Wash Day @ 10Weeks Post…

I co-washed my hair mid week last week focusing mainly on moisture and my hair ended up in a loose braid out .

This weekend I'll focus on strength by adding protein.

[1]   Scalp massage with Extra Virgin Olive Oil (warmed) for 4 mins. Applied EVOO to the last
       3 inches of my hair.
[2]   Deep Conditioned on dry hair with a mixture of Crème of Nature Intense Conditioning 
       Treatment, 1 tea spoon of ORS Mayonnaise, 1 tea spoon of honey, 1 tea spoon of KeraPro
       Restorative Conditioning Treatment, under my heat cap for 45mins. While rinsing my

       hair felt much stronger as well as very moisturized so I’m a happy camper.
[3]   Applied TreSemme Luxurious Vitamin E Luxurious Moisture Conditioner and let it sit for 
       2 mins and rinsed 
[4]   Wrapped my hair in a T-shirt for 1 hour.

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.  Detangling wasn't a breeze but also not very tedious. At this stage of my stretch I start getting a lot of single strand knots which are so annoying.

My throat was scratchy like if I was coming down with a cold so I sat under my hooded dryer for 15mins using low heat, so my roots would dry faster and let my ends air-dry by itself eventually.

Moisturized my hair with Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter. I parted my hair on a side and sprayed the hair around the 'part' with my moisturizing spray and followed up with Ampro Pro Styling Gel on my edges. I dampened my brush and gently brushed my edges. Pulled my hair into a ponytail and bun it.
