CURLFORMERS


Some people might find curlformers a bit pricey, but I found the dupe version on Amazon.com and I have been using it for several years now. The only thing is that I have to buy the original hook at Sally's Beauty for less than $4. Total cost of everything was $20 compared to the $60 charge for the original. You can get yours at Sally's or Amazon. Here is how to use it to create spiral curls.

BONNETS
This is a MUST for our night time routine!! If you don't have a bonnet, #GETUSOME! Using a bonnet especially at night will help retain moisture better while you sleep.

Wash Day: Deep Conditioning Natural Hair Before Wash

Wash Day: Deep Conditioning Natural Hair Before Wash DiscoveringNatural

I have been doing a lot of research regarding Deep Conditioning before washing my natural hair. Three years ago, I even wrote a blog post about it, which you can ready here.

My wash day actually started 3 years ago. Now this is what happened.  The plan was to pre poo overnight with coconut oil  post detangling.

But life took over. Lil Sis had an emergency tooth situation, which resulted in an extraction... then she had an emergency at school...then soccer ...and so on. SHE IS OKAY NOW.

Anyway, after that extra prolonged pre-poo, my hair was super duper soft and fluffy. Kicking myself now for not taking a picture of it. I was tempted to not even wash it, but the way my scalp situation was acting, wash day HAD to take place.

I decided to deep condition prior to washing because (1) I was testing the process (2) I did not want to have wet head for a long time. I used a multi-purpose product, Embrace The Natural You leave in conditioner, which is a leave in, daily moisturizer and also deep treatment. More about Embrace the Natural You .  I applied this product to 5 sections of my hair. Normally, I do 4 sections, but recently  have been doing 5 by separating the crown area. This is helpful to reduce breakage in that area.

When applying the product to my dry hair, it penetrated VERY well and my hair felt quickly hydrated. I covered my hair with 2 plastic bags and a knitted hat. Kept it on for about 45 mins (normally, I do 30 mins as suggested on the product usage direction).

Post washing my hair with Uncle Funky's Daughter Squeaky Shampoo (got a sample), and then did a Protein Treatment with Aphoghee 2 Minutes Reconstructive Conditioner, my hair felt EXACTLY the same way it did when I deep condition post wash. The only thing was that due to the protein treatment, my hair felt stronger. Which was okay.

I am trying to use up products, used the TGIN Green Tea Super Moist Leave In Conditioner after massaging my scalp with my DIY Oil Mix. I then sealed in all the moisture with Sistem Beauty Moringa Oil Velvety Hair Butter. Styled in Chunky Twists for stretch.
