Wash Day Experience | Playing with Low Manipulation Styles

Hey loves,

Here is a recap of Wednesday's wash day:
[1] Exfoliated my scalp with Lisa's Hair Elixir Fortifying Spray. I massaged into my scalp and let it sit for about five minutes. 
[2] Hot Oil Treatment with Lisa's Hair Elixir Restoring Oil.  I massage the oil into my hair and scalp. After 10 minutes, I rinsed it out with warm water. 
[3] Co-washed with Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus Co-Wash Cleansing Conditioner.
[4] Tea Rinsed with green and black tea mixture. I ran the rinse through my hair twice and put a t-shirt on my hair to soak up the excess tea rinse.
[5] T-shirt dried my hair for about 15-20 minutes 
[6] Applied Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Leave-In Conditioner, Black Vanilla Conditioner, Marguerite's Magic Restorative Cream and JBCO to my hair.
[7]  Put on my bonnet and went to sleep.

The next day I decided to wear a fohawk, one of my go-to styles.But, for some reason I wasn't really feeling it so I decided to rock a low manipulation style on Friday. I was trying to model a style I saw on YouTube but of course Felicia (the name I have for the crown & top of my hair) wasn't having it. So, I improvised and tucked the back up with bobby pins. Since my the front of my hair wasn't cooperating, I had to leave it out. It doesn't look great in the photos but it doesn't look that bad in person.
