Pre-poo: Parted my hair into 4 sections and lightly misted my hair with a mix of green tea, peppermint oil, lavender oil, glycerin and a spoonful on Marshmallow Root powder. I braided each section and off to bed I went. I woke up and sprayed some on my roots and applied coconut oil to my strands. Covered my hair with a plastic cap for an hour and rinsed
 Cleanse: I decided to try out the Babassu Marshmallow shampoo bar again. This time I opted to lather twice.
 Protein: Decided to give my hair a dose of protein with Redken Extreme Strength Builder Plus left it one my hair for 5 minutes and rinsed
 Deep conditioner: Mixed the slightest bit of Marshmallow root powder with the rest of my As I Am Hydration Elation and put in my hair. Hydration Elation has some nice slip on its own but that Marshmallow root put it over the edge (yes, ladies you need it in your life A.S.A.P!). Covered my hair with a plastic cap for 45 minutes an rinsed with cool water.
 Leave-In: While my hair was still damp, I applied Carol’s Daughter Moisture Milk and my Oil Mix
Now to the fun part…
I have been lusting for curls for a few weeks now and you ladies have been giving me life with your flexi rod sets, so I decided to try out some curls this week. I recently purchased some Curlformers, I mean the generic no name brand that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
Any whooo… I used a tad bit of Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and some Olive Oil Ecostyler gel to make sure it does not fuzz up when it dries and so it can “hold.” Out of the 40 curlformer ringlets I used 39 and it took me about an hour and a half to two hours to finish. I let them air dry for about 3 hours. I wanted to make sure my hair was completely dry when I took them out (because sleeping in these babies was not an option) so I blow dried my hair on medium (this has been the only time that I wished I had a blow-dryer to sit under) and then took them out. I loved the curls that I achieved with them. Since I did not sleep in the curlformers, I pinappled my hair and the next day result was so-so. Tip for next time I use them is to use an actual product that ‘holds’ curls hopefully the style will last longer (any product suggestion ladies?). I will definitely be using the curlformers again, beautiful curls + stretched new growth= winning! Thanks again for your suggestions on last week’s post the protein treatment this week helped a lot!
How was your most recent wash day?
Have you tired out Curlformers?
