Wash Day - Braid Out + Half Up Top KnotThursday, April 02, 2015
My Wash Day Run-Down:
Pre-poo: I applied Extra Virgin Coconut Oil to my hair while dry. I left my pre-poo on for 20-30 minutes with a plastic cap.
Co-wash: Rinsed out the EVCO and grabbed my lovely Aussie Smooth conditioner to co-wash my roots/hair. Love this stuff - it's truly moisturizing and detangling!!!
Air dried: I t-shirt dried for 15-20 minutes until my hair was just slightly damp. I applied some Scurl No Drip Activator mixed with Creme of Nature Argan Oil Foaming Wrap Lotion to set my hair for increased definition in my braid-out. I sealed my hair with the Creme of Nature 100% Pure Argan Oil to lock in moisture. I then started to section off my hair in 5 sections and began to braid. I added perm rods to the ends of each braid. I air dried my hair overnight and removed my braids in the morning with a little bit of CON Pure Argan oil on my finger tips to prevent frizz.
Style: Since I'm freshly relaxed, braid-outs don't always come out looking 100% because I have no new growth. It can be a hit/miss. I opted for the half up top knot for a more chic trendy look, plus I was celebrating my birthday so I wanted something fun and cute :)
I gently used a boar bristle brush on my hairline and edges for smoothness. I secured the section with a ponytail holder and began to two-strand twist the remaining hair - wrapped it around & pinned it down! My hair felt so soft and smooth - just the perfect combination for a braid out :)
Results: My Birthday hair :)... out and about!
Until next wash day....
