Happy Monday everyone,
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. It was abnormally nice this weekend in Monterey, so the hubby and I made sure to soak up the sun.
Anyway, yesterday's wash day was amazing. Why, you ask? Because this was the first time in awhile that I didn't have any single strand knots. I kept waiting for them to pop up but they didn't. I guess my changes are making a difference.
Now on to the recap:
 Pre-pooed with Virgin Coconut Oil and JBCO for an hour, paying attention to my ends. I like using this time to lightling detangle with my fingers. Coconut Oil was one of my staples in the very beginning and it worked wonders for my hair. I'm happy that I decided to incorporate into my regimen once again
 Co-washed with Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus Co-Wash Cleansing Conditioner in sections.
 Protein Treatment : ApHogee Intensive Two Minute Keratin Reconstructor . I left it on for two minutes and then rinsed it out.
 Deep Conditioned with Perfect Moisture Deep Conditioner by Tangles and Beyond & Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque for about 45 minutes. I'm running out of my sample of the deep conditioner from Tangles and Beyond so I had to mix it with one in my stash. I didn't intend to leave it in so long but I had to run an errand. Yes, I actually went outside with my deep conditioner in my hair. Well, thankful my hoodie covered it up pretty well. Lol.
 Detangled with my hair in sections with my Denman Brush (with the deep conditioner still in my hair). For now, I think the Denman Brush is the best way to detangle my hair.
 Tea Rinsed with my black and green tea mixture. Lately I've opted for 3 black tea bags and one grean tea bag.
 ACV rinse . I poured the rinse over my head, massaged it in for a minute and then threw my t-shirt on my head. No matter how much I dilute it with water, the ACV rinse manages to make its way into my eyes. ACV to the eye is so unpleasant. Lol.
 T-shirt dried my hair for about 30 minutes
 Applied my leave-ins: Jia's Carribean Dream Cream , Shea Moisture JBCO Leave-In Conditioner, JBCO, Tangles and Beyond Deep Moisture Shea Butter and Argan Oil.
 3 Strand twists - I really tried to do bigger twists to save myself some time, but I failed miserably. I think it took me about 2 1/2 hours to finish.
I was so excited to make it through an entire wash day without any knots! This hasn't happen for at least a couple of months. I know that my little tweaks have worked and I'm determined to keep it up. I will also be sharing some of the things that have worked for me.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I will be rocking 3 strand twists until my one year natural anniversary.
In case you didn't notice it, there is a big change on the blog. We have a blog domain! I was getting ready to do a new post and Google showed me an offer for an domain name. The price was low and the name I wanted was open. I jumped on the opportunity and purchased it right away. One of my goals is to update the blog this year and getting a domain name was on my to-do list. I hope to do more updates to the blog this year. So please stay tuned for that :).
