Finally A Full Wash Day…

I have been mainly co-washing for the last couple of months but doing a full wash days on protein wash days.  This wash day, I had time on my hands and decided to undertake a normal full wash day.
New Growth @ 12 Weeks Post Relaxer
[1]   Detangled my hair with Mane N Tail Detangler sprayed on my roots. I always detangle
       before I start my wash day.  That actually sets the tone of how my hair will end up post 
       wash day.
[2]   I forgot to do my scalp massage and went on to apply coconut oil all over my hair, from 
       root to ends very generously. On the last 5 inches of my hair, I applied Aphogee Keratin            Two Minute Reconstructor  to strengthen my ends. I went under my heat cap for 30mins 
       and rinsed. I could instantly feel my hair stronger and lightly moisturized.

[3]   Shampooed with ORS Creamy Aloe Shampoo to get rid of all of the buildup and rinsed.
[4]   Deep Conditioned with my Queen Helene Cholesterol mixture on dry hair for 35 mins 
       under my heat cap and rinsed.
[5]   Wrapped my hair in a T-shirt for 1 hour. Applied my leave in conditioners of Herbal 
       Essences Split End Protector and sealed with Coconut oil.  Detangling was a breeze.
Serial Bunner
[6]   I decided to air-dry my hair and throw it into a bun and that’s my hair is going to be for this
       work week. I didn't feel the need to sleek down my edges so I added a head band to 
       jazz up my hair.

My hair thoroughly enjoyed this week’s wash day and it wasn't as tiring as I thought.  My hair ended up soft and moisturized.
