I had my 1 week post wash day over the weekend. I love these wash days after I touch up the new growth, they are so quick and easy. I also find it easier to style my hair during this time and try out some of the styles that I have in my *to do* folder, and trust me, there is a lot. I decided to give my hair a moisture boost on this wash day because I was planning to flat iron and this is known for sapping all the moisture from one’s hair.
I started detangling my hair around 1am on Sunday morning – don’t ask me why, after getting back home I just felt like washing my hair. By the time I applied my DC, it was 02:30 and I was more than ready to call it a night!
Here is how it went:
Prepoo: Coconut oil. I used heat for 20 minutes
Shampoo: Aunt Jackie’s Oh So Clean Moisturising & Softening Shampoo
Instant conditioner: Bodyshop Banana Conditioner
Deep Conditioner: Dabur Vatika Black Seed Hair Mask Treatment and Castor oil. I kept the DC overnight.
The next morning:
Rinsed out the hair and t-shirt dried
- Leave-Ins: Beautiful Textures Tangle Taming Leave-In Conditioner, Motions CPR Triple Action Leave-In Conditioner and Coconut Oil
- Moisturising and Sealing: AfroBotanics Conditioning Moisturiser and Olive Oil
I then blow dried my hair using the tension method, I used cool air. I sprayed the hair with my heat protectant: Chi Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray and I flat ironed my hair at 160 degrees C and I did two passes.
My hair wasn’t all the way straight, and I liked that look, my hair is sooo thin and lifeless when it is all the way straight.
Here are the results:
My hair is currently just over shoulder length, my ends are still blunt – which I love!
