Wash Days...

Wash days... Sigh.. I don't like them. At all. It always takes FOREVER! I need to give myself a time limit, when to start and finish, also prep my DIYs (Do-It-Yourself products) and my hair the day before. I did do three DIYs last week, my results weren't the best but they'll work for now.

Let me tell y'all about the wash day I had this past Sunday.

1. I started off by finger detangling on dry hair. I usually finger detangle with conditioner in my hair but this time I didn't want to add anything so that my hair can be ready for the next step. 

2. I followed with my first DIY which is my onion juice and rose water mixture that I put in a spray bottle. I put on my heat wrap and left the mixture for about 40 minutes.

3. I rinsed out the mixture with lukewarm water and shampooed my hair with Aphogee Shampoo for Damaged Hair.

4. Since I was waaaay past my bedtime (aintnobodygottimefodat), I just did a quick deep condition with the heat wrap for 15 minutes.

5. I rinsed out the deep condition with cold water and dried my hair about 70% with an old tshirt. 

6. I use the L.O.C method when I moisturize my hair. 
Leave-in, I used my other DIY which was another mixture with rose water and a little Herbal Essence- Hello Hydration conditioner.
Next, I apply both Almond and Coconut Oil.
And finally, I use my last (failed) DIY, a Shea Butter Cream with Almond and Coconut Oil.

I ended my misery by putting cornrows in my hair that I wear underneath my wigs and keep for no more than 2 weeks.

I'm probably going to modify my routine a little and add a midweek routine because my hair is so dry lately and I'm really striving for thicker hair and stronger edges. I'll keep you posted!

After I've finger detangled my hair, I section it into four parts. #yesfilter

I will have a separate post with information about my DIYs.

Stay tuned for more!

Love Always,

I need to tell y'all...

About my obsession with Lupita Nyong'o! She's a absolutely beautiful, intelligent and talented young lady who made an amazing Hollywood debut in the movie "12 years a slave". It's a great movie based on a true story and if you haven't seen it, GO SEE IT NOW!!! (Make sure to bring tissues).

I love seeing her being celebrated in Hollywood, she's become the new It-girl. On top of that she's a fellow naturalista and looks incredible in her low cut hairstyle.

Stay tuned for more!

Love Always,
