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.

What on Earth is meant by “living your best life”, and how do we achieve it? Why does it seem like so many people other than us are living...
