Wash Day Diary: Sept 17th 2014 : Make It A Combo?


Last wash day, I was suppose to do a clarification, well, didn't do one, so I decided to do it today. I tried something new today. Because I do not like the way my hair feels when shampooed (hence why I do not do it so often), do the following:

  • Coat hair generously with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and do a dry detangling session
  • Jump into the shower
  • Rinse one section of hair with lukewarm water
  • Apply Giovanni 50:50 Balanced Hydrating-Clarifying Shampoo
  • Then on top of that WITHOUT RINSING OFF apply Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner
  • Continue to all sections
  • Rinse each section off
  • Then reapply Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner
  • Did my shower bizness!
  • Rinse off conditioner
  • My hair felt uber-soft!
  • Deep conditioned with SheaMoisture Purification Masque, just to make sure all product buildup was removed and my scalp had been itchy a little
  • Cover hair with plastic cap and sat under dryer for 30 minutes under medium heat
  • Remove  plastic cap, wait 15 mins for hair temperature to return to room temp
  • Apply generous amount of VO5 Strengthening Conditioner
  • Rinse hair
  • Seal with Cold Aloe Vera Juice

Post Wash
Because  I used a moisturizing non-protein deep conditioner, I always use a protein leave in to give a moisture-protein balance. Hey, that's what I do.  LOL!
By the way, when deep conditioning direction calls to apply "moderate heat", what is MODERATE HEAT?
