Wash Day - Soft & Fluffy!Wednesday, January 21, 2015
I must say, wash day was a hit and to top it off, I only used 4 products! I started off my session by saturating my strands with by BF aka Coconut Oil. I then went under the steamer for 20 minutes (no plastic cap).
Lately, I've been trying out a product line that I recently purchased - Shea Moisture Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil Shampoo and Deep Conditioner. I lathered with the sulfate-free shampoo twice. My hair felt so moist and hydrated. The slip is perfect and it rinses out easily. Loved it! My full review will be available shortly.
I then t-shirt dried for 15 minutes and applied the Shea Moisture Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil Deep Conditioner to my roots, hair and ends. Though I always add oils to my deep conditioners, I didn't add any this time around since I'm still in the testing phase for this product. Just for the record, the deep conditioner works so well without the extra oils, I'm really impressed. So after steaming for 30 minutes, I rinsed and t-shirt dried for the rest of the night while doing things around the house.
I was so impressed with the state of my hair. I didn't experience any tangles or breakage from start to finish and I'm currently 5-6 weeks post relaxer. My hair was extremely soft, fluffy, smooth, hydrated and it felt strong! These products were so good to me, I'm definitely going to post a full review soon. Just looking at my air dried pic, the shrinkage in my hair is so real right now :)
About an hour later, I followed up with a favourite leave-in conditioner of mine, Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave-in and a little bit of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This stuff is the truth! I can't believe I was sleeping on this product for so long. My relaxed hair literally felt like butter right after applying it!! I threw my hair into a simple bun - wash day complete! I love buns #bunlife :)
