Wash Day


Last wash day---I pulled my hair up into a bun. And there it stayed until this wash day. Ha-ha! I kinda moisturized and sealed. I kinda detangled. I kinda---didn't really wrap my hair at night. Inspite of my neglect, something amazing happened. As I prepped to wash my hair again, it felt AMAZING. It was still moisturized. It was still fluffy. It was still soft. Needless to say, I totally wanted a repeat performance of last week's wash day!


  1. Extreme Deep Condition- I deep conditioned on unwashed using Matrix Ultra Hydrasource Conditioner on my roots and Joico K Pak on my ends. Then I massaged my stands with extra virgin coconut oil, covered with a plastic cap and left it in overnight.
  2. Tea Rinse- using 2 Bamboo tea bags steeped in 2 cups of water + 2 tbsp of glycerin.
  3. Air Dry- with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil applied to wet hair then wrapped in a satin scarf.
  4. Leave ins- I used Jessicurl Too Shea Extra Moisturizing Conditioner to moisturize, my kitchenista Tangerine Vanilla Whipped Hair Butter to seal and then faux banded my hair.

Results:
It took me less than 45 minutes to tangle! Now, this may not seem like a big deal to you---but this is AMAZEBALLS for me. I'm totally crushing on everything about Matrix's Hydrasource conditioner. It's not often that I fall head over heels in love with a conditioner after two uses. The slip is to die for. The scent is heavenly. And the moisture---y'all---I've never experienced moisture overload before, but this conditioner just might do it! This week, I decided to throw a strengthening conditioner on my ends. I've been protein layering for several months now; it's safe to say that my ends are in great shape because of it.






I wish that I would have taken a picture of my detangled and banded hair. I love the look of big hair on me! To style, I set my hair on a few Caruso steam rollers for about 30 minutes and went on about my day. I promise that I'm not abandoning bantu knots---I think!

How was your wash day?
Besitos!

  4. I love how big hair makes my face look smaller and younger. I think big hair looks good on you too. Thank God for the ability to have big, curly hair without using any heat.

    1. I definitely think that curls give a more youthful appearance. I have straight hair on my drivers license but the last time that I had to show it, the cashier said---wow you look so much younger in person. Who knew that curls could get you card?!?

      Thanks for stopping by chica!

  9. Your curls are so cute! I love that you have some texture going on too. I have to deal with my new growth, haha. I recently had a wash day, but I was just too exhausted to take pictures of it. Currently have my flexirods in, I can't wait to see the results tomorrow :D. hope it stretches the new grow adequately.

    1. My hair was just a tad damp when I installed the rollers and the tension that I applied didn't completely stretch my roots. Nonetheless---I loved this look! I can't wait to see your flex-rod results!

  10. it's been so long since i've been on your blog - i've missed so much, haha.

    but your curls looks amazing!
    i have yet to master the art of flexi rods - i always end up with curls going in every direction.
    or worse, no curl at all...

    1. I too suck at flexi-rods but steam rollers are just about KLP proof. No matter what I do---or don't do, I can still get some great curls! YAY!
