Wash Day Recap: Back to Low Manipulation Styling

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone!

I have been slacking on the blog posts this month but we're finally settled in Portland. And, now that we're settled I can actually get back to my regular hair routines/practices. Here is a recap of Friday's wash day:

1] Pre-pooed with Hair Trigger doing some light detangling with my fingers and left it in for an hour.

[2] Shampooed with Shea Moisture's Cleansing Cowash Conditioner. 

[3] Protein Treatment with ApHogee Intensive Two Minute Keratin Reconstructor for 2 minutes.

[3] Deep Conditioned with Tangles and Beyond's Deep Moisture Conditioner for 40 minutes.  Before I rinsed it out I used my Denman brush to detangle it. My hair was a tangled mess from wearing my hair out. This conditioner is a god-send because it melted all of my tangles away and brought my hair back to life.
[4] T-shirt dried my hair for about 15-20 minutes. I wanted my hair to be damp not soaking wet when I applied product.

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

[5] Styled my hair:  I knew it was time to put my hair back into protective styling. It was fun having it out for a little bit but honestly the tangles/matted hair is not fun. I will wear my hair out but not all the time. I prepped my hair for the style by banding it with hair ties to stretch my hair. 

My original plan was to try a style that I saw on YouTube but I couldn't get my hair to cooperate. Instead I just did a tuck and pin style, totally on the fly. I think it turned out well, especially since this was a style I made up in the moment. I'll wear this style until Friday or Saturday. Depending on how my hair feels, I may take it down Tuesday to moisturize it and then put it back up.
