Same Ole Wash Day…

I haven’t posted about my hair in a while because I haven’t been doing anything special to my hair for the last couple of weeks.  My weekly regimen has remained the same but styling has been as simple as possible. Take a look at how my hair has been lately.
My hair styles for the last couple of weeks

[1]   Detangled my hair with Mane n Tail detangler sprayed on my roots. I always detangle
       before I start my wash day.  Once this is done properly post detangling isn’t tedious.
[2]   Scalp massage with Extra Virgin Coconut oil for 25mins. My scalp has been sore for a 
       couple of days and the massage felt great. I followed up with saturating my hair, 
       from root to ends with Extra Virgin Coconut oil. I sat under my heat cap for 25mins
[3]   Rinsed and Shampooed with Crème of Nature Moisture & Shine Shampoo
[4]   Deep Conditioned with my Queen Helene Cholesterol mixture on dry hair for 40mins
       under my heat cap and rinsed.
[5]   Wrapped my hair in a T-shirt for 1 hour.
[6]   Applied my leave in conditioners of Herbal Essences Split End Protector (my ends only), 
       Aussie Moist Conditioner and sealed with Extra Virgin Coconut oil.  Post detangling was 
       not time consuming at all.
New Growth @ 10 weeks post
Right now my new growth is popping everywhere but its alil deceiving since the top of my hair was severely under-processed from my last relaxer.  I can still see some hints of the red dye in my hair which is very surprising and I’ll definitely try this brand of dye gain. I do plan to dye my hair the same color when I relax my hair in two weeks.  Single strand knots have been trying to take over my life and I’m seriously over this stretch.  I’ll be preparing my hair this weekend for my relaxer day.
Air-drying in mini twists
I twisted my hair in sections to air-dry, in an attempt to stretch my new growth. It worked in some areas and others it didn’t. I think I needed to do smaller sections. The following day I oiled my scalp with Jamaican Black Castor Oil. Moisturized with Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter and sealed with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.

My hair ended up in a bun, which is how my hair is going to be this week.  My wash day was successful but styling has been a drag.

  1. Can't wait to see your relaxer results. Sorry to hear styling right now is not going to smoothly. :(

  2. Single strand knots are a killer! I was over my stretch too and relaxed my hair. Love your mini twists x
