My Wash Day Routine: Naomi

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.

Ingredients 

  • 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.
