Was under the weather this week so my hair got neglected – been wearing afro puff; the hair has shrunk and ends are tangled. Time for some attention! Here is how my wash day goes.
Step 1: Did this overnight – pre-poo with coconut oil as follows: section hair into four parts – spritz each section with water, apply coconut oil, finger detangle and twist. I wear a plastic cap and secure it with scarf or bonnet to avoid messing my pillow.
Sectioned Hair. Oiled and twisted hair.
Step 2:Next morning: Shampoo with Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Shine, wash hair and scalp focusing on the scalp to wash off all the product buildup. I wrap a T-shirt on my head to remove excess water.
Step 3: Time to deep condition. Trying something new today- Avocado Deep conditioner. My hair is still in twists. I unravel each twist, apply the mix and re-twist, wear a shower cap and leave on for an 1 hour.
- 1 Avocado, ripe and cut into pieces
- 2 Tablespoons Honey
- 1 Tablespoon Avocado Oil or Olive Oil
How to Apply: Blend the ingredients together to make a smooth paste. Apply to wet hair, cover with plastic cap and leave on for one hour.
Step 4: Rinse deep conditioner, and wash hair with Tresseme Naturals Conditioner.
Step 5: Unravel each twist, apply leave- in conditioner, Shea Butter and re-twist.
I needed to run errands and hair wasn’t dry yet, so I wore a head scarf. Happy Wash Day.
Lots of Hair Love.
