My Green Tea Infused Hair Oil Rinse from last week made my hair feel...
...and really oily.
I'm guessing that I didn't rinse well enough. *le sigh* #thickhairproblems
Then add in 2 hours of soccer practice plus my usual daily workouts---my hair was begging to be washed this week.
Here's what I used:
Pre-shampoo- DIY Moisturizing Mist (tutorial here) + Aubrey GPB Conditioner (review here)
Shampoo- Jessicurl Cleansing Cream (review here)
Deep Condition- Jessicurl Deep Treatment Conditioner (review here)
Leave-Ins- Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Why EVCO is AMAZING here) + Jessicurl Too Shea Conditioner (why I love this stuff here) + DIY Hair Butter (tutorial here)
And here's how I did it:
I started my spritzing the ends of my hair with my DIY Moisturizing Mist (tutorial here). Then I slathered my hair in Aubrey GPB conditioner. I adore the way that this conditioner helps me detangle, leaves my curls perfectly defined and strong. (You can read my full review here)
I hopped in the shower, shampooed with Jessicurl Cleansing Cream (review here) and rinsed. Next, I deep conditioned with my all time fave conditioner Jessicurl Deep Treatment Conditioner (review here), coated my ends in Extra Virgin Coconut oil (here's the kind that I use $) to seal in the conditioner and plopped under my hooded dryer for about an hour.

I t-shirt dried for about 10 minutes then installed my beloved Curlformers using a little more Extra Virgin Coconut Oil + Jessicurl Too Shea Conditioner (why I love this stuff here) + DIY Hair Butter (how to make your own Hair Butter here) as my leave ins.
Sometimes I wished that I lived a more lavish lifestyle. One where wearing my hair in big bouncy beautiful curls like these was required. But...I don't. Ha-ha! I'm a regular soccer mom with a ridiculously long messy to-do list where even high buns seem too formal.
So I whipped my hair into this crazy quick and super simple Fishtail Banana Clip updo. Here's how I did it:
- Begin with stretched hair (I stretched my hair using Curlformers.)
- Section off your bangs by making two parts at the crown of your head.
- Secure with a hair clip.
- Secure the rest of your hair with a hair clip.
- Braid your bangs using the fishtail technique. (Here's a tutorial on how to Fishtail Braid Natural Hair)
- When the braid reaches the back of your crown, simply double strand twist to the ends and secure with a hair pin.
- Now release the back of your hair and pull it into a pony tail.
- Use your banana clip to secure the hair.
- Divide the hair in the banana clip into two sections. Clip one section away.
- Now double strand twist this section
- Roll and tuck the twist then use a hair pin to secure it.
- Repeat on the last section.
