Wash Day- I'm Natural

So after transitioning for 67 weeks or a total of 469 days I finally had enough and cut off the remaining three inches of texlaxed hair.  OMG, at first I was like what the hell I just did but then I was like this is the end goal, just a few months earlier than planned. Since I did my chop I have gotten so much lovely compliments on the health of my hair.

Here is a recap of my last wash day;

Products used-

-Oil Mix
-Creme of Nature Sunflower & Coconut detangling conditioning shampoo
-Ettenio Cocolicious balancing penetrating  conditioner
-diluted Apple Cider Vinegar
-Cantu Shea Butter leave-in conditioning repair cream
-Elasta QP olive oil and mango butter moisturizer
-Jamaican black castor oil


[1] Coated my hair with my oil mix and detangled using my fingers them followed-up with a wide tooth comb. Once I felt like it was properly detangled I shampooed with diluted shampoo on dry hair.  I prefer to do it this way so I can get to my scalp clean it properly.  I then hop into the shower to rinse out the shampoo.

[2] Once the shampoo was properly rinsed out I coated my hair with Ettenio Cocolicious balancing penetrating conditioner and sat under my conditioning cap for 45 minutes.  After my hair was cool I rinsed with warm water and followed-up with cool water.

[3] I then wrapped my hair in a towel to get out the excess water, after which I sprayed my entire head with diluted apple cider vinegar and detangled and put into six sections.  After which I wrapped my head in a t-shirt to dry.

[4] When my hair was about 90 percent dry I applied Cantu Shea butter conditioning repair cream to each section and left to air dry.  When it was completely dry I applied Elasta QP Olive Oil and mango butter moisturizer and sealed with Jamaican Black Castor oil before installing eight flat twist.



I have gotten really good at my flat twist so my twist outs comes out  looking really  great.  even though I like the look of my hair, I am planning to shape it up in a month or two so my styles looks polished.

Live Your Best Life

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...
