Wash Day: Dry DC
Yesterday was wash day. I still had the itchies so I decided to wash again this week in an attempt to rid myself of this annoying dandruff. As soon as I woke up that morning I pre-pooed with a mix of olive, castor and coconut oil. Left that in while I did laundry, breakfast etc. and then did a dry DC for maybe 30-45 mins while watching The Dog Whisperer….(I can’t be the only one that thinks Cesar is hott!!!).
Anyways I digress – back to my wash day lol. After deep conditioning I shampooed with the KMS Head Remedy dandruff shampoo twice. Made sure I rubbed my scalp well and let it sit there for maybe 5-7 mins. This shampoo is gentle compared to other shampoos designed for the same purpose. My hair was not tangled as badly as I have experienced before with other dandruff shampoos.
After all the shampooing came the fun part for me. I love experimenting with deep conditioners so I first put on my beloved Kenra to detangle and I was tangle free in an instant. I was such in a hurry for my Kenra rush that I had forgotten to do my light protein, so I rinsed the Kenra and applied Aphogee 2 min. This is an effective and reasonably priced light protein. That stayed on for about 5 mins before I rinsed and applied a combo of the Moisturefuse and coconut oil and DYI-Steam-Treated for almost an hour.
I’ve heard rave reviews about Moisturefuse but I’m yet to jump on the bandwagon. Maybe it moisturizes well, but for me my moisturizing conditioner should detangle as much as it moisturizes. Moisturfuse doesn’t do this for me and for something that contains cones I was expecting a tad more ummpphhh if you know what I mean. I haven’t given up on it yet though in the hopes that it’s one of these products that you have to build a long term relationship with before it displays it’s full affection. I’ll be keeping an eye on this one for any marked improvements.
Given the lack of slip from the Moisturefuse, I thought I would use a little of the Kenra as a leave-in. Why didn’t I do this before? I don’t know but it worked out quite nicely. My hair had this velvety texture about it. I don’t know if it was the Kenra, the Moisturefuse or the combination of the two but I liked what I felt. Combing was a breeze.
Rollersetting afterward was not such a breeze as I tried out the Mohawk-inspired rollerset I first saw from Macherie a while back. That will take some getting used to, but I only used water and the Fantasia IC Polish and my hair came out with nice soft light curls.
I did not experience any breakage this wash day but I do notice some scraggly hairs sticking out from previous breakage 🙁
