How to Cowash Cornrows on Natural Hair

 
 
Post from our Facebook page, DiscoveringNatural
Last night,  I cowashed my natural hair which is in a protective style cornrows using EdenBodyworks cleansing cowash.
 
How to do it:
STEP 1: Saturate hair with water
STEP 2: Apply cowash
STEP 3: Rinse thoroughly
STEP 4: Dry. I tied a T-Shirt on my hair, and then wrapped my hair with my microfiber Turbie Twist towel.
 
After hair has dried,  moisturize as usual. I used applied a liquid Leave-In by Belnouvo and massaged scalp with my DIY oil, and sealed with Kinky Tresses butter
Covered hair with a wig cap because it is very snug. You can use a scarf. This helps with any frizzing.

MY NATURAL HAIR NIGHTMARE


Nightmares are meant to happen at night, right? Well, this one happened during wash day. I have had a similar experience in the past, but this was even worse because my precious products were involved. #ProductJunkie. Click here to watch that bad experience.

My hair had been acting like a diva lately, so I gave her a trim and then clarified her by doing a Rhassoul Clay cleanse. I am in the process of using up my products, and since I only have one more use of the clay, I decided to use it. Rhassoul clay is excellent in clarifying my hair  and defining my curls. Watch this and see how truthful this statement is.


I have NEVER had an issue with this particular brand of Rhassoul clay, but today, I made several HUGE mistakes!!

Okay... when did the nightmare happen?

After I had supposedly cleansed and rinsed my hair free of the Rhassoul clay, I put in my leave in spray and then my curl moisturizing cream and started twisting up my hair. I got to the last quadrant of my hair and noticed my hair was brown!! BROWN!!!. Now, the last quadrant was at the back of my head. ARGH!! I was so upset. Not only would I have to rewash my hair, I have wasted my leave in and also moisturizing cream!

HOW DID I RECTIFY THIS ISSUE
Instead of using a shampoo to cleanse my hair, I just used my favorite cleansing cowash conditioner to clean my hair. This cowash suds up a lot, so I could easily see the color changing from brown to white. I repeated this twice and rinsed.

WHAT SHOULD I HAVE DONE DIFFERENTLY
  • Always wash your hair in a WELL LITE AREA
  • Use a shower mirror when possibile
  • Repeat rinsing your hair several times
  • Work in sections when washing your hair
  • Followup with a sudsy cleansing cowash, if in doubt.

Why is My Natural Hair SO DRY?



WHY IS MY NATURAL HAIR SO DRY?
This is a question I get asked over and over again and in today's post, I would love to address 5 key reasons why your natural hair is dry.  First, let's clarify what I mean by dry. I do not mean dry in terms of how it feels after washing it. In that case, we have different categories: Wet, Damp and Dry.

When I say dry, I mean POST WASH DAY.

Now watch this to learn WHY YOUR HAIR IS SO DRY.
