Wash Day Experience: The Hotel Edition

Hey everyone!

As I mentioned in my last travel adventure update, May has been a busy month. So busy in fact that it took me 10 days to wash my hair (I usually wash once a week). By the time I washed my hair we were (me, the hubby and the dogs) staying in a hotel until we left for Portland.

Before Wednesday's wash day I wore my fro out for a whole week, playing around with different styles. At the end of the week, my hair was a tangled mess so I decided to pin it up until I had time to deal with it.

One of the styles I wore during the week.
My first "puff"
Here is a recap of Wednesday's wash day:

[1] Pre-pooed-- I didn't have time for a long wash day, so I skipped this part.

[2] Shampooed with SoapBox Argan Oil Shampoo (sent by Influenster, a product I will be reviewing soon).

[3] Deep Conditioned with The Antidote by Tangles and Beyond for 20 minutes.  Can I just say that I love this conditioner? There will be a review of this soon.

[4] Detangled-- Usually I detangle every wash day but with all of our things packed for the move, I couldn't find my Denman brush or wide tooth comb.

[5] T-shirt dried for about an 20 minutes.

[6] Applied my leave-insJia's Caribbean Dream Cream  and Tangles and Beyond Deep Moisture Shea Butter.

[7] Styled my hair: Since we were leaving for Portland the next day and I had to run out to meet up with friends after washing my hair, I went with a simple style: my afro with a flower. My plan is to wear this style for a few days, then pin it up on Sunday and keep that way until my next wash day (either Wednesday or Thursday).
