Yes, today is Wash Day. Usually, I look forward to washing my hair, pampering my hair, but today, something was a bit off. I was not sure maybe it was because I used something new.
I started as usual, the night before pre-pooing with a mixture of Vatika Coconut oil and Jamaican Black Castor Oil.
Now to digress....
Yesterday, I went to my local Indian store to buy some grapeseed oil, and saw that they had a new collection of Vatika oil products. I was very excited. As I oohed and ahhed over the new pretty products, I read the ingredients on each product. Mineral oil...mineral oil...MINERAL OIL.
Oh, mineral oil, why! why!
As you know, I don't use mineral oil. I did try to use a product last week that had mineral oil in it and my hair HATED it. It was like, "Girl! What are you doing to me?!". From now on, I am staying clear of Mr. Mineral Oil.
Back to my wash day fiasco...
I woke up this morning to very soft hair, which I loved. Then I washed with my trusted Tresemme Naturals Conditioner, and decided instead of doing a deep treatment with my Nubian Heritage, I would use Shea Moisture Anti Breakage Masque. It was ...err... okay.. and then instead of using my Giovanni Leave In, I would use Shea Moisture Thickening Growth Milk. I bought this in the BOGO on going sale at Target and do my LCO method to moisturize my hair.
My hair felt dry even after application. Not sure why. I know with Shea Moisture Curl and Style it worked great. I will give this product another try.
As for styling, I decided to do simple medium twists to stretch my hair. Nothing fancy....
I am also using this technique from NaturalMe4C to super stretch my twists.
I will do a video on the results in the near future. Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel (DiscoveringNatural).
