Washday Update

    Washday was this past Wednesday but I have been soo busy that I haven't had a chance to post. I was on campus from 9am to 7pm so when I got home I still had a lot of other things to do including washing my hair, packing my bags for the weekend, and cleaning my apartment.
    So I started with a brief prepoo of coconut oil on the length of my hair. I am slowly learning how to effective use coconut oil in my hair journey. I do not like to use it to seal my hair because it tends to make it very hard and wiry. I have found that my skin absolutely loves coconut oil, along with my scalp and nails! So for now it is just used to prepoo or on my scalp. I followed my prepoo with a scalp massage using both coconut oil and castor oil.
   I washed my hair using Organic Root Stimulator Creamy Aloe Shampoo, because I like to clarily my hair every four week and also because this is relaxer week for me. Then I applied my black tea rinse to my scalp and hair for 20 minutes. It was actually still hot because I forgot about it and brewed it at the last minute- pure touture lol. After 20 minutes I applied my DC which consistented of KeraCare Humecto, Hello Hydration by Herbal Essences, Olive oil, and a small amount of JBCO. My DC stayed on for about a half hour before I rinsed it off.
   I t-shirt dried for 30 mins and scarf dried for another thirty. I applied s-curl to my new growth & my NTM leave in while I detangled. Lastly I sealed with Elasta QP Mango Butter, and my new favorite, grapeseed oil!


  1. I just bought the S-Curl spray the other day. Several ladies on the LHCF stated that it was great for keeping your ng moisturized while stretching. I'm loving it so far!

    1. I love S-Curl!! I have been using this on my new growth since the very beginning of my hair journey. It helps soften my new growth once I am 6 weeks post and beyond.
