Wash Day

So, my goal is to wash consistently twice a week and then hopefully once my scalp stops being so dry I'll only have to wash once a week again. *fingers crossed*

(1) Pre-poo with scalp massage using a rosemary infused almond oil. (I definitely plan on making my own soon.) I warmed the oils to make the scalp massage double as an hot oil treatment. Then I used a mixture of Neutrogena Triple Moisture Conditioner and Creme of Nature Sweet Almond Conditioner on the length of my hair, covered with a plastic cap and let marinate for about 2 hours--Yummy!
(2) Shampooed with Paul Mitchell Awupuhi Wild Ginger Moisturizing Lather Shampoo. My new fave. It just makes my hair so soft!
(3) Deep Condition with Halka Baba de Caracol for a few hours. No heat this time; but maybe next time. Ha-ha!
(4) ACV Rinse- for the first time. I'll post more about my experience later. But let's just say the smell was awful and I swear that I could smell it for hours afterwards, even though everyone told me that they didn't smell anything.
(5) Leave-ins- Philip Kingsley Itchy/Flakey Toner on my scalp then ApHogee Keratin and Green Tea Restructurizer and Skinny Girl Serum on the length of my hair.
(6) Light blow dry- I air dried a bit, detangled then decided to blow dry on low to help straighten out my roots more. I'm just not (yet) a fan of complete air drying unless I'm going to do a braid out.
(7) Flat ironed I feel like my hair is sleeker and it doesn't take as long to flat iron when I do a light blow dry. 

I'm stocking up on some new goodies to test!




  1. ACV rinses are awesome for the shine and closing your hair's cuticle but horrid on the nose!

    1. Yeaaa... not a fan of the smell lol i felt like I smelled it hours later...womp
