What To Do When You Skip Wash Day



This weekend was Wash Day Weekend for the girls. However, we were extremely busy. I decided to do something that I have never done. I decided to just refresh their hair.

Before I decided to forego washing, I made sure to examine their scalp for any dirt, product buildup, or dandruff. I did not see any. One reason why we do not have product buildup is I do not go too heavy on products on their hair. I also use more natural products that absorb well into their hair. The last reason is because I do not use products that attract dirt or dandruff.

I started by spritzing each section with SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Kids Extra-Moisturizing Detangler instead of water. This helped to detangle their hair and even bring in more moisture.

Next , I applied my oil mix to their scalp and massaged it.

After this, I applied some SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk. This helps to keep the frizz away, add moisture and promote shine.

Then I applied a little more of my oil, this time to the hair and the ends of the hair to seal in the moisture.

Before twisting, I used the SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Styling Lotion as the styler to twist their hair. Some people find this drying, however, the opposite is the case for my hair and my daughters' hair.

What do you do when you can't wash your child's hair?

  1. I do the same thing but with different products. Normally i just refresh with water and oil and some cream leave in if needed. Do you have any natural kids products to recommend?

    1. Try the SheaMoisture kids line. I did a video series on all their products, you can view it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxNijPl9MVQ&list=PLbnEcCSO5ykmn2CEXBRrmvpIxQMO6OLgs
