Wash Day Recap: That Twist Life

I've been meaning to post about my last wash day since Wednesday but as usual, life got in the way. Here is a recap of my last wash day on December, 6th. 

 Pre-Poo/ Hot Oil Treatment:  I mixed EVCO with EVOO and put it in the microwave for 30 seconds. I  applied the mixture to my hair focusing on the ends and then I applied the rest to my scalp.  I gently massaged my scalp for about 2-3 minutes, sectioned my hair into four sections with my Goody Ouchless hair ties and then put on a plastic cap for 30 minutes. 

Co-Washed with Detangling Co-Wash by Mielle Organics in my usual four sections.

Protein Treatment--GPB Balancing Protein Conditioner by Aubrey Organics for two minutes.  I swear this stuff instantly makes my hair feel stronger.

Deep Conditioned with Babassu Oil and Mint Deep Conditioner by Mielle Organics under my Hot Head cap. Then the hubby and I took our dogs on a long walk, which ended up being exactly 30 minutes.

Detangled with my Eternally in Amber Detangling Comb with the deep conditioner still in my hair and then jumped in the shower to rinse it out.

T-shirt dried my hair for about 15 minutes. 

Leave-ins + Oils - With my hair still in four sections, I applied Mint Almond Oil to my scalp and then did my usual LOC Method- Aloe Vera with Water, Mint Almond Oil, Jia's Caribbean DreamCream followed by the Kera Care Twist and Define Cream to twist my hair.  

At this point in my wash day, I realized my pole class was earlier than I thought. So I left the house with the back of my head in twists and the front in two big puffs.  I got home almost two hours later and finished the rest of my twists. 

As usual I wore my hair in twists from Sunday-Thursday and then did a twist out for the weekend. This weekend was extra special because the hubby and I traveled to Monterey, California for his graduation (he got his MA in International Education Management).

So proud of him :)

Since we flew back home last night, I decided to push my wash day to Thursday. So I retwisted my hair using the Kera Care Twist and Define cream. I'll probably keep my hair in twists until I wash my hair on Thursday.

The Wash Day Experience


  1. Mine was good. Tried out perm rods for the first time and it turned out well.

  2. That's great! I want to try perm rods again, my first attempt didn't go so well.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Congrats to your hubster!!! Is Jia's Caribbean DreamCream a moisturizer or sealant?

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience chica!

    1. Thank you! I'm so proud of him :). Jia's Caribbean DreamCream is a moisturizing Leave-In Conditioner. I like to use it as the cream in the LOC method.
