Wash Day | Business As Usual

I can't believe Christmas is only 5 days away and the new year is just around the corner! I hope everyone is enjoying their time with families and friends this holiday season.

Since my last post the tv show I work for went on hiatus and I have been enjoying my 2 1/2 week break :)! Well, that's partially true. As we wrapped the last episode of 2015 on Wednesday night, I started to feel sick. By the time I got home it was evident that I had food poisoning and I spent the next 24 hours or so thinking I was going to die. Seriously, it was awful. Thank goodness the husband stayed home with me on Thursday because I barely left the bed or couch. Once Friday rolled around I was ready to (slowly) eat foods and wash my hair. Here's how my wash day went down:

Pre-Poo/ Hot Oil Treatment: 2-3 big spoonfuls of EVCO and several drops of EVOO (I don't measure, I just pour until I think I have a good amount).  I heat this mixture up for 30 seconds in the microwave before I apply it very generously to my ends and scalp.  I find using my Roots Only Applicator Bottle makes the process easier. After I massage the mixture in my scalp for a couple of minutes, I put my hair in four ponytails using Goody Ouchless hair ties. Then I put on a plastic cap and my Hot Heads cap for an hour.

This is not the same bottle that comes with the applicator. I think I used the other bottle for something else.

Co-Washed with Co-Washed with Detangling Co-Wash by Mielle Organics in four sections. I finished the bottle so I will have to restock it asap!

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

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

Detangled- With my deep conditioner still in my hair I jumped in the shower  and  used my Eternally In Amber Detangling Comb. This conditioner and comb make detangling quick and easy!

Hair loss from pre-poo and detangling.

* The hair that I lose on wash day has been fairly consistent over the past couple of months, which is great!

T-shirt dried my hair for about 5 minutes. I had a writers meeting so I only had a few minutes for this step. I'm pretty sure I had water dripping down my back during the meeting. Lol. Good thing it was a virtual meeting.

Leave-ins + Oils and Styling My hair -  As usual I did the LOC method, which has helped my hair retain moisture. My go-to products for this are: Mint Almond Oil, my spritz mix (Aloe Vera Juice, Water and I added White Peony Ultra Moisturizing Leave-in Conditioner), Jia's Caribbean DreamCream and Kera Care Twist and Define Cream. 

Newest addition to my mix

After my meeting I did two strand twists and I will probably wear the twists until Wednesday. As of right now, I plan to wear a twist out for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

  1. I'm so happy that you're feeling better chica! How do you like the KeraCare Twist and Define Cream? I've eyed it for a while now wondering if it's worth that price tag.

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience!

  2. Thank you! I really like it. It has given me great twist out results: defined curls. I think it's worth it. Let me know if you try it.

    Thanks for stopping by!
