Wash Day: Steamer Experience

Yesterday was the big day.  I was tired as heck, didn’t feel like doing anything with my hair but I persevered.   I did an oil treatment with coconut oil and steam on dry hair.  I like coconut oil , but I wasn’t blown away yesterday.  Somehow I think this would have worked out better if my hair was wet.  After the oil treatment, I shampooed with Kenra, did the 2-min Aphogee and applied some Kenra MC to do the steam DC.  I...

Wash Day: Blowdry & Rollerset

This post is a little late.  I didn’t get to do my weekend wash but I did do it on Tuesday.  I did an oil treatment with VO5, shampooed once with the KMS Head Remedy cause I had the itchies then shampooed with Kenra Moisturizing Shampoo.    After the KMS my hair felt really coated.  I felt like the benefits of the oil treatment were negated. 🙁  Anyway I had to continue, I did the Aphogee 2-min, and then deep conditioned with...

Wash Day: Curlformers

Yesterday was wash day.  I  did an oil treatment with VO5 hot oil, shampooed with Kenra Moisturizing shampoo, did the Aphogee 2-min reconstructor treatment and DC-ed with Mizani Moisturefuse.  After, instead of a rollerset, I decided to do a curlformers set. This is my third attempt at curlformers and I think by far the best one. Here are pics of the set itself.  You can see that the front isn’t completely finished because I ran...

Wash Day: What’s Up With the Wiry Hair!?!?

Another wash day behind me.   Today’s wash was muy interesante to say the least!  My hair was wiry – like straw! Ya know, that thing that horses munch!?  I kid you not and I don’t know why. I started off with a prepoo of Olive Oil and Coconut Oil and water under heat for an hour or so.  That was followed by the Deva Curl Low Poo (I’ll be doing a review on this in the coming weeks), then I  used the ORS Olive...

Wash Day: Clarify

My hair was long overdue for a wash. I didn’t get to wash it over the weekend and I just couldn’t stand it anymore. My hair felt dirty and grimy and I just had to put an end to that. Prepoo consisted of a mix of castor oil and olive oil and then I saturated my hair with Curls Coconut Sublime, covered with a plastic cap and went under the dryer for maybe an hour or so. I then decided to clarify because of all the build-up I...
