Wash Day Recap | Hello Twists!

Hey loves!

Hope you are having a great weekend. Here is my a recap of my wash day last Sunday (I know, it's late).

Pre-Poo:  I applied my current pre-poo mixture ( EVCO, EVOO &Grape Seed Oil) to my hair concentrating on my ends.  I let the mixture sit in my hair for about an hour.

Co-Washed with Shea Moisture's Cleansing Cowash Conditioner using Nappy Fu's tips for co-washing.

Deep Conditioned with  Shea Moisture's Jamaican Black Castor Oil Stregthen, Grow and Restore Treatment Masque for 15 minutes using my Hot Head Deep Conditioning Heat cap

Detangled with the masque still in my hair. I decided to use my fingers to detangle and carefully removed any knots or shed hair along the way.  

T-shirt dried my hair for about 10-15 minutes. This allowed the excess water to be absorbed by the t-shirt.

Applied my leave-ins Shea Moisture's JBCO Leave-In Conditioner, Jia's Caribbean DreamCreme by Tangles & Beyond and sprayed my hair and scalp with my essential oil mix.

Styled my hair-- The original plan was to twist my hair and let it continue drying. Then in the morning I would put my hair in a puff and wear it that way for the week. But after I got back from pole class last Sunday and remembered that my call time was 6am the next day, that plan went straight out the window. Instead, I wore my twists for the rest of the week and did a twist out yesterday for date night with the hubby.
