Wash Day Recap | High Puff

Hey loves!

I'm so excited with my recent wash day and a new style that I got to try out. Here is a recap of Sunday's wash day:

Pre-Poo/ Hot Oil Treatment:  I mixed EVCO, EVOO, Grape Seed and Jojoba Oil together and put it in the microwave for a minute. After it cooled down,  I applied it to my hair and scalp leaving it on for an hour. 

Co-Washed with Shea Moisture's Cleansing Co-wash Conditioner 

Deep Conditioned with Shea Moisture's Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow and Restore Treatment Masque and Tangles & Beyond's Deep Moisture Conditioner adding Jojoba Oil to my ends. To get the full benefits of this trio, I used my Hot Heads cap for 15 minutes.

Detangled with the mixture still in my hair. I used my Eternally In Amber wide tooth comb to detangle. The detangling process was quick and easy because my hair was soft and most of the tangles were already gone.  

T-shirt dried my hair for 15-20 minutes. I like my hair to be damp but not soaking wet when I apply my leave-in conditioner and oils. 

Leave-ins + Oils  I got out my trusted Jia's Caribbean DreamCreme by Tangles & Beyond and applied a generous amount to the hair shaft and ends. This is probably my favorite part of wash day because I love the way this stuff smells. Lol. I then sprayed the ends of my hair with my oil mix and massaged my scalp with Sweet Almond & Jojoba Oil for a couple of minutes. 

While pulling my wash day arsenal, I stumbled across The Antidote (which I forgot I had. Lol). After reading about how people use this as a styling cream instead of a deep conditioner, I decided to use it to twist my hair.  I let my hair dry overnight in the twists and then took them out in the morning.

Styled my hair - I've been wanting to try a high puff style for awhile. I did one this summer but the pressure from the elastic band gave me a migraine. Then I stumbled on one of BlakIzbeautyful's old tutorials and knew I hit the jackpot.

This tutorial was so quick and easy. I think it took me less than 5 minutes to do this style before work on Monday. I loved the results and rocked this puff the whole week. I will definitely do this style again in the future.

  1. Just stumbled on your blog,yay for smooth washdays, nice.How did she recommend you do the puff?

    1. Thanks for stopping by! Instead of using an elastic hair tie/ scrunchie, she suggested using stockings (cut of the part right before the thigh and use that portion). Let me know if you have any other questions :)!
