Wash Day

This wash day was a little fast and efficient but nevertheless great.

Prepoo with Cantu Shea Butter deep treatment masque with olive oil and grapeseed oil mixed in. I didn't like the Cantu deep treatment masque so was using it up to make space. I sat under my conditioning cap for 25 minutes, then rinsed with warm water.

Shampoo with ORS creamy aloe shampoo, I used a lot of product this past week and felt I need to get a good lather going.  As always ORS does not disappoint, my hair felt clean and gunk free.

Tea rinse with  black tea by pouring it over my head for 3-5 minutes then rinse with cold water.

Deep conditioned with Organics by Africa's Best hair mayonnaise under my conditioning cap for 30 minutes, (it my be more because I was talking to my mom).  Yes it is a protein treatment but love the softness and and strength my hair have after using this product.  Rinsed with warm water and t-shirt dry for 20 minutes.

Apply leave in of Creme of Nature Perfect 7 and OGX coconut milk antibreakage serum before detangling and putting my hair into four sections. Roller set each section with my 2-inch rollers ( I used 16 rollers in all) then sat under The Andis bonnet dryer for 35 minutes.  I had to DIY the dryer cap to fit over the rollers.
After 35 minutes my hair was completely dry, I the apply a few drops of Ettenio seal and shine and shine.

I think I am getting over my blow dryer addiction this is the third week I have not pulled it out.

Hope you had a great was day.
