Wash Day

128[1] Pre-poo: Sprayed my roots with my tea/detangler mix (green tea, marshmallow root powder, peppermint oil, and lavender oil. I allowed it to sit on my hair for 5 minutes before slathering grapeseed oil on all of my hair. I allowed it to sit on my hair for an hour

[2] Shampoo: Suave Daily Clarifying Shampoo. Only lathered once.

[3]Deep Conditioner: Carol’s Daughter Sacred Tiare Restoring Hair Mask, covered my hair with plastic cap for 90 minutes and rinsed with cool water.

[4] Leave-ins: (L) Crème of Nature Strength and Shine Leave-In Conditioner, (O) Grapeseed Oil, (C) Pura Body Naturals129

Allowed my hair to air dry. I applied Smooth N’Shine Polisher to prepare for the best part of this Wash Day… Flat Iron Time! Yeah I wasn’t all that excited either but I have been itching to do a little snip, snip. I used to use Faye’s self-trim method to trim my hair but I just put it in a ponytail and snipped away. I don’t care if I have U-shaped or V-shaped ends, I just need them to look good. After I trimmed my ends I topped it off with Nexxus Pro-Mend Split End Binding Serum.


I have been on this hair journey for over a year and recently, I have been focused on the overall health of my hair. I am working on the health of my nape area, I cut about an inch off to give it a good start. I also have to monitor how I wear my hair making sure to switch up the positioning of my ponytails and buns.137


Overall, this was a pretty good Wash Day, I am set to relax my hair next week, but I think I’m gonna drag it out to 16 weeks.

How was your Wash Day?

Name one hair goal you would like to accomplish this year?

The Wash Day Experience


  1. Your hair looks great. One goal? Great question. I would like to work on my nape as well. I have so many things I wanna work on but won't bore you with a list.

  2. Your nape looks fantastic. Keep up the good work.

  3. It's such a small world! I use Faye's instructions to get my U-shaped cut too! I also read somewhere that U-shaped cuts make you look slimmer. Too bad that we don't wear our hair down enough for it to matter. LOL.

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience chica!
