Wash Day Recap | New Products/Changes = Healthier Hair & a Better Twist Out?

Happy Hump Day!

Last week's wash day produced my best twist-out to date. In order to achieve the same results I repeated the same steps on Sunday. Before I talk about my wash day recap, here is the twist-out I rocked on Friday and Saturday after wearing my hair in from Sunday-Thurs.



Pre-Poo/ Hot Oil Treatment:  I mixed EVCO (the last bit that I had) with EVOO and put it in the microwave for 30 seconds. I added this mixture to my scalp, massaging it in for about two minutes. Then I sprayed my hair with my Aloe Vera spritz/oil mix and using my hands to get rid of any shed hair or knots.  I sectioned my hair into four sections with my Goody Ouchless Elastic Bands, placed a plastic cap on my head and put on my Hot Heads Conditioning Cap for an hour.

Co-Washed with Detangling Co-Wash by Mielle Organics in four sections. This co-wash really makes my curls pop.

Protein Treatment--GPB Balancing Protein Conditioner by Aubrey Organics for two minutes. 

Deep Conditioned with Babassu Oil and Mint Deep Conditioner by Mielle Organics under my Hot Head cap for 30 minutes.

Detangled with my Eternally in Amber Detangling Comb with the deep conditioner in my hair. My hair was so soft and easy to detangle!! Usually it takes some effort to detangle my  hair but this conditioner made it so simple! I barely had to detangle with the comb. This is only my second time using this deep conditioner but I think this is going on my staple product list. #winning.

All the hair lost from shedding and detangling

ACV rinse: I missed this step last week but made sure to do it this week. 

T-shirt dried my hair for 10-15 minutes. 

Leave-ins + Oils   I loved the twist-out results I got from my last wash day so I decided to follow the same steps.  I sectioned my hair into four sections and applied Mint Almond Oil to my scalp. For the LOC method, I used a spritz bottle with water and Aloe Vera juice, Mint Almond Oil and Jia's Caribbean DreamCreme. I also used Kera Care Twist and Define Cream again to twist my hair because I think it helped me achieve a great twist-out.

I don't know if it's my imagination but I feel like my hair feels more moisturized and looks longer. I plan on following this new wash day regimen for awhile to see if my results continue. Here's to hoping I have another awesome twist-out at the end of the week.

How was your #WashDayExperience? Are you trying any new products or techniques?
