Wash Day

Hello Ladies, I feel like I haven’t blogged in forever! I am currently 6 weeks post and maintaining my hair daily has been a little less than easy. Even with my daily moisturizing and sealing sessions, it has been hard to maintain the moisture in my hair and I have been experiencing increased shedding. I really feel like I need to find a hairstyle that will allow me to reduce manipulating my hair and allow me to moisturize my hair… Any suggestions besides braids? I also think it would be a plus if I was able to adopt the finger combing technique… But let Wash Day commence. I am a little late posting but my my wash day took place on Monday.
[1] Overnight pre-poo using Hairitage Hydration Pink Grapefruit PunchDSCN5636
[2] Shampooed my hair twice using Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo. I was not a big fan of sulfate-free shampoos but this one has continually given me good results
[3] My tea rinse was a mix of lady grey tea, green tea, peppermint oil, and lavender oil. I sprayed the tea into my hair focusing on my roots. I let it run off into a bowl and then reapplied the tea into my hair and left it on for 5 more minutes before applying my deep conditioner.
[4] I used Nexxus Humectress Deep Conditioner Treatment. I covered my hair with a plastic cap for about an hour and rinsed
[5] I applied my leave-ins: first spraying my hair with apHogee Keratin and Green Tea Restructurizer, then Pura Body Natural Murumuru Moisture Milk (I’ve had this moisturizer for a while but I am not a big fan of it, Hairitage Hydration Soft Coconut Marshmallows works much better for me, I’m gonna have to re-up on that) and I sealed it in with my favorite oil mix and allowed to air-dry.
I will have to adopt some new practices like washing my hair in sections next Wash Day because I know what’s coming

The Wash Day Experience


  1. I'm not that big of a fan of Pura Body Natural Murumuru Moisture Milk either. For now, I'm blaming it on the super dry winter weather. I think that I'm going to save the rest of my bottle for the Spring and Summer before I call it a bust.

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience chica!

  2. I've had my eye on the Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo for a while now, but have never tried it. I think I might give it a go once my no-buy ends!
