Wash Day + Castor Oil Challenge Week 7 Update

Hey everyone!!

I thought I would share my weekly wash day routine. I wash my hair twice a week usually on Sunday and Wednesday/Thursday. Since I workout a lot during the week, I find that washing it twice a week keeps my scalp clean. Here's my typical Wash Day routine:

[1] I pre-poo with a mixture of Tropic Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil, JᾹSÖN Vitamin E Oil and Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. I added JᾹSÖN Vitamin E Oil as part of the 30 Days with Ceramides Challenge  . I  like to leave my pre-poo on for about 30-45 minutes under a plastic cap before rinsing it out.
[2] Co-wash with Shea Moisture's Coconut & Hibiscus Co-wash Conditioning Cleanser .You can find it at any Walgreen's or Target location. 
[3] Tea rinsed with Black and Burdock Root Tea. Check out  Jen's post on how to do a tea rinse. I put on my plastic cap and let the tea rinse sit for about 5 minutes. 
[4] Deep condition with Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner
[5]  After rinsing out the conditioner, I do an ACV rinse. Check out it LiveNaturallyLove's video for a tutorial on how to do an ACV rinse. I let it sit for about 5 minutes.
[6]  I use an old t-shirt to towel dry my hair for about 30 minutes. Then apply I Kinky-Curly Knot Today  and detangle if need be.
[7] I apply Alikay Natural's Shea- Yogurt Hair Moisturizer and style my hair in two-strand twists.
[8] I leave my twists in for about 2 days and then wear a twist out on day 3.

Castor Oil Update Week 7 Update (a little late)

Week 7 was easy like the other weeks. I did notice more baby hairs around the edges :). You can see some of those in the pictures above. I actually have to buy more of my JBCO because I only have a little bit left!

That's it for now.

~Until next time :)
