Wash Day (01-22-17)

I deep conditioned on dry hair with Shea Moisture Superfruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Hair Masque mixed with 1 tsp. JBCO and 1 tsp. Honey and a little Avocado Oil. I sat under my hooded dryer for 25 minutes.

Next I co-washed with Suave Almond and Shea Butter Moisturizing Conditioner;

Leave-in: Hask Placenta Super Strength Leave-In Instant Conditioning Treatment;

Immediately after spraying my hair with this leave-in my hair felt sticky, so I decided to leave it alone by pinning it up and leaving it to air dry. Afterwards, I read the instructions on the bottle and it said that I should let it penetrate for 3 minutes before styling as usual. After about 20 minutes, when my hair had dried some more, my hair did not feel sticky at all. This is a protein leave-in conditioner so I did not expect my hair to feel moisturised after…and it didn't, but my hair felt soft and fluffy and not crunchy as I was dreading.

Moisturise and seal: Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Moisturiser and Sweet Almond Oil

I am 10 weeks post-relaxer and I'm at the stage where I need to figure out how and when I will end this relaxer stretch. My options are to put in braids at Week 12 and stretch until Week 16 or to relax my hair at Week 12. I am sort of leaning towards the latter option but will keep you posted as usual.

Wash Day (01-15-2017)

Pre-Poo: I started my wash day by doing a scalp massage. My scalp massage oil consists of Avocado Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Tea Tree Oil & Eucalyptus Oil. Then I pre-pooed my strands with Safflower Oil for 40 minutes.

Shampoo: I shampooed my hair in two sections with Creme of Nature Straight from Eden Natural Oil-Infused Hydrating Shampoo which was diluted in an applicator bottle.  

Conditioner: Next I applied Roux Porosity Control Corrector & Conditioner to my hair which I left on for 10 minutes. This conditioner always helps me to battle my tangles.

Deep Conditioner: I cheated a little bit by not adding JBCO to my conditioner this week. Instead, I used Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Treatment Masque and applied Tropic Isle Living Red Pimento Hair Growth Oil to my scalp, then I sat under my hooded dryer for 20 minutes.

Just before rinsing out my DC I added Suave Almond and Shea Butter Moisturizing Conditioner to my hair for additional slip.

Leave-In Conditioner: I sprayed It's A 10 Miracle Leave-In Product throughout my hair and then applied some Herbal Essences Honey I'm Strong Strengthening Serum before leaving it to air dry.

I skipped the tea rinse this wash day although I promised I would do it - I was really short on time. Quite a bit of my hair is still coming out, but they are long strands so hopefully they are all shed hairs. I have Garlic Supplements which I bought to help with shedding but have not been using much. I think this week I will use them as directed every day and see if I notice any change on the next wash day.  I will keep you posted. 

How was your Wash Day? Have you tried Garlic supplements?
