Technically this is my first full wash day of the new year even though I did a co-wash last week with my mini twists. The mini twists are a great protective/low maintenance style that allows me to take a mini break from my hair. Keeping the mini twists in for two weeks seems to really work for my hair.

Here is a recap of Saturday's wash day:
Pre-Poo/ Hot Oil Treatment: I microwaved my EVCO for about 3o seconds and then apply it very generously to my hair and scalp. I used this time to give myself a mini scalp massage. After my mini massage, I put my hair in four ponytails using Goody Ouchless hair ties and wore my Hot Heads cap for an hour.
Co-Washed with Detangling Co-Wash by Mielle Organics in four sections.
Protein Treatment--I just realized as I'm typing this post that I didn't do a protein treatment! That's never happened to me but I will make sure to get one in next time.
Deep Conditioned with Babassu Oil and Mint Deep Conditioner under my Hot Head cap for 30 minutes.
Detangled- As usual I went with my trusted Eternally in Amber Detangling Comb. For the past two or three wash days I do this particular step in the shower.

T-shirt dried for about 10-15 minutes.
Leave-ins + Oils and Styling My hair- Since the LOC method has done wonders for my hair, I've kept that aspect of my wash day the same. My go-to product 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.
As you may remember I installed mini twists in my hair on my last full wash day. Because I loved my mini twists so much, I decided to do them again. The plan is to wear them for two weeks (like before) and then take them out. I still plan on doing a co-wash in between with the mini twists in my hair.
So far I've been wearing my mini twists in a ponytail with some bangs. I got a number of compliments on the style today, which is always nice.
