It's really cold outside and the last thing I wanted to do was to wash my hair. However, I needed to get a fresh look since my Wash and Go using my DIY flaxseed gel had run its course.
I started by washing my hair with Naturalicious Moroccan Rhassoul 5-in-1 Clay Treatment , which helped me skip Deep conditioning my hair since this product does it while cleansing my hair.
While in the shower, after rinsing the clay off, I sectioned my hair into 4 chunky twists. I then covered my hair with a t-shirt for about 10 mins.
On each section, I followed these steps:
- Massage scalp with my oil mix
- Apply SheaMoisture Yucca and Baobab Thickening and Growth Milk for moisture
- Use oil mix to seal in moisture
- Working in smaller sections within that big section, applied SheaMoisture JBCO Styling Lotion and flaxseed gel
- Twisted hair
Once done twisting my entire hair, I used smaller flexirods (red) in front and larger flexirods (grey) in back to give more bouncy look at the back. **crossed my fingers ** and sat under the dryer for an hour and a half.
.... and after all that... my hair was still not dry. argH!!!
I decided to let it dry for about 8 more hours (all day).
I loved the results. My hair was super duper soft and shiny!! Also, the front bangs, I did a flat twist instead of my rope twists to give the roots more definition.
At night, I pinned up my hair in a loose puff and tied my scarf around the perimeter of my head. LIKE THIS:
The next morning since I needed to go to the gym, I used a mesh head wrap to secure my hair
After the gym, all I did was remove the wrap, remove all the pins, and shake...and go.
