Wash Day: Cornrow Prep

Last wash day I focused on eliminating the excessive shedding that had plagued me over the last few weeks.  After prepooing with coconut oil overnight and leaving it in until the evening time, I gave my hair a good wash.  First I lathered with some Head & Shoulders Smooth & Silky Dandruff Shampoo to help curb the itchies I was experiencing.  Let that sit on my hair for a few minutes then rinsed and lathered again with Kenra...

Wash Day: Corrective Wash

Had to put an end to the results of my last wash.  Although I was able to soften it a bit by using Qhemet Burdock Root and Wave Nouveau, it just wasn’t that silky feel that I’ve gotten used to.  I shampooed with Head and Shoulders Smooth & Silky (2 lathers) and then applied the Kenra MC.  Let that sit while showering and then rinsed.  My hair felt soft, but strong (little shedding or breakage).  I used Kenra as a...

Wash Day: Moisturfuse & Protein – I Hate You But I Love You

Uggghhhh…moisturfuse ooh moisturfuse ooh moisturfuse; protein….ooh protein…ooh protein.  What’s with this tumultuous love affair??? Last wash day I incorporated some protein. Seems reasonable right? I normally do a light protein treatment weekly (for 3 mins or so) to avoid having to do heavy protein treatments (I hate how hard they leave my hair). I pre-pooed with my concoction from this post; shampooed with...

Wash Day: Homemade Pre-poo & ACV Rinse Results

I’m a little late in posting these results, but better late than never right?  My last wash day I experimented with a rich homemade pre-poo and an apple cider vinegar rinse.  The results were undoubtedly the best I’ve had from any wash day for the entire year!  My hair really loved one or a combination of all the “experiments” I performed for that mid-week wash.  My task now is to isolate which one of those...

Wash Day: Homemade Pre-poo & ACV Rinse

Oh tonight was a night of experiments!! After being so dissatisfied with the results of my last wash,  I figured I needed to step up my game and become more consistent with my mid-week washes.  So even thought I didn’t feel like going through the whole mid-week-wash-routine I did it anyways and I’m glad I did. Today was all about pampering and getting my hair back on track so I decided to do a pre-poo with a homemade...

Wash Day: Long Overdue

Holy!  My wash day was loonnnggg overdue.  I hadn’t washed since the Thursday before the wedding -that was Sept 10th!!  The weekend after the wedding I was so busy I just thought to myself that I’d wash it the following week – the 21st.  Well guess what?  On the 21st I woke up with a horrible cold bug.  Arrrghhh!!!  I knew I should have persevered and washed it over the weekend.  Dammit! So there I was sick,...
