Wash Day

Hello Ladies!
I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving Break as well as the Black Friday sales, I sure did! Wash Day is a little late, I know, but I have to revamp my Wash Days based on my work schedule. Better late than never. Here’s how my Wash Day went down:
[1] Hot Oil treatment. I used a mix of Safflower Oil, Grapeseed Oil, and Eucalyptus oil. After applying to my hair I covered it with a plastic shower cap and let it sit on there for an hour then rinsed
[2]Shampooed my hair with WEN Lavender Cleansing Conditioner 2x’s
[3] Sprayed Lady Grey tea into my hair and let it saturate before applying my deep conditioner on top of it
[4] Applied WEN SixThirteen. I covered my hair with a plastic shower cap and let it sit for over an hour and a half and then rinsed with cool water
[5] Applied my leave-ins: ApHogee Keratin and Green Tea Restructurizer to my new growth and ends, applied Taliah Waajid The Great Detangler, and sealed it all in with my favorite oil mix: Grapeseed Oil, Coconut Oil, and Lavender Oil.
I am 10 weeks post so I am due for a touch up, but my stretch is going well. Before my hair journey, I was worried about walking around with a “nappy head” so I was quick to get a relaxer. Nowadays I just don’t care if other people think my hair is nappy, as long as I can manage it I am okay. I am going to try to stick it out for another week or so.
I had a great Black Friday I got some hair products that I wanted to try. I still haven’t found a flat iron that I am willing to invest it. If you know of a good one feel free to share. I was also able to get a new camera which I am very happy about, now I can add more pics to my blog :)
Hope you all had a great holiday!
When do you plan on ending your relaxer stretch?


  1. My holiday was great and hope yours was also! I really like my Babyliss Titanium Nano (the light blue one). Had it for a very long time and still very effective

    1. I've had the Nano on my wish list forever. I'm waiting for my Solia to die. I've had the Solia for almost 4 years and its still going strong.

    2. I've had the Nano for about whew, let's least 5 yrs if not more. I love it. I don't use heat much anyway so it should last me for a lot longer.
