Wash Day 2.7

I do not know if it's me or if my new growth is just crazy ridiculous right now. I think my hair is starting to reap the benefits from my healthier lifestyle and supplements. I've been meaning to do a supplement update for awhile anyways. This week's washday was nothing special but it was very much needed. My hair was feeling pretty dry and so I tried my best to incorporate a lot of moisture.

Typical Braidout
        1. To prepoo I used V05 Moisture Milk Conditioner (Strawberry) mixed with grapeseed oil, castor oil. and a small amount of castor oil. I left it on for 35 minutes. I have really been enjoying my pre-poo with my "cheapie" conditioners, they seem to work better than just plain ole' oils.
        2. I chose to wash my hair with my so-far favorite shampoo Organix Awapuhi Ginger Shampoo. One of my future purchases will be a new shampoo and I have a few in mind just because I like having options.
        3. I left my Black Tea Rinse on for 15 minutes.
        4.  This week I used Vanilla Silk Creme Moisture Dream (these long names have to stop lol) for my deep conditioner. I left it on for about 40 minutes before rinsing out. I really am enjoying this deep conditioner. This is my third time using it and I think it will become a staple. My hair was soft after I squezzed out my hair.
       5. This is my 5th week since I last did a clear rinse on my hair, so I used the same one from that day. (Jazzing)This time I left it on for 25 minutes before rinsing out. This particular brand has a strong smell that gets more intense the longer you have it on.
        6. While in the shower I applied my Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Daily Treatment, and left it on for 5 minutes
       7. I t-shirt dried for 12 minutes. Then applied my leave-in Aphogee Keratin and Green Tea leave-in and the Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum. Air dryed for an additional 30 minutes.
        8. I did five braids for a braid-out with 2 braids in the front and 3 in back. Products I used were Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk and Grapeseed oil.


  1. if you are looking for a sulfatefree shampoo i would recommend either the elasta qp creme conditioning shampoo or the con argan oil moisture and shine. i use both and love them.

    could you please explain why you using the clear rinse? i'm just wondering :)

    1. Clear rinses help with tangles because it reduces friction between strands as well as enhances color and sheen of strands :)

  2. Ha-ha! @ Super ridiculous names of products!

    How are you liking your clear rinses?

    1. I am liking them a lot actually they help with tangles and the over all smoothness of my hair. I am anxious to try another brand, I may have one more application left in my bottle.

  3. I use the Aphogee Deep Moisture shampoo on my wash day. I love how my hair feels afterwards: very soft and not like my hair has been stripped from product build up. It has protein though so....

    I have been looking for clear rinses in shops forever but can't find them over here. I'd love to try it out one day :-)

  4. You have reminded me that I need to get back to my clear rinses. Haven't done one in a while.
    What's up with the super long product names? Two or three words is enough but jeez 4 or more is just pushing it. LOL

    1. Yes I like them a lot, especially if my hair is straight, the shine makes my hair look smoother. I totally agree with you, it's just a hair product not thesis lol.


Leave a comment, I would love to hear from you!
