Wash Day - Simple yet Effective!

Friday, March 20, 2015

If you follow me on Instagram (@hairlicious) then you already know what my wash day consisted of in terms of products. I brought out my trusty ol' Keracare humecto to maximize the hydration in my 12 week post new growth! It was heaven!!

Lets break it down:

Deep conditioner: Keracare Humecto Cream Conditioner
Oils: Extra virgin olive oil (1tsp), Jamaican Black Castor Oil (1tsp), Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (1tsp)
Co-wash conditioner: Aussie Moist Smooth
Leave-in: Scurl No Drip Activator

Lately, my new growth has been pretty much unbearable! Since I'm in the Castor Oil Challenge, my growth has been noticeably thicker, and stronger! It literally takes me longer to style my hair and my hair is drinking up my products like no other!!

I decided to apply my deep conditioner to dry hair (saturated from root to tip), leave it on with heat for 30 minutes then co-wash it out. I t-shirt dried for approximately 15-20 minutes.

As I was air drying,  my new growth and relaxed ends came out buttery smooth and moisturized! This is exactly what my hair needed. I applied my leave-in on damp hair and let my hair air dry in a middle part ponytail overnight to tame my new growth. My hair was secured with a satin scarf.

This is how it turned out in the morning. No gel, no edge control. Distinct line of demarcation! LOL

Simple yet effective!

Until next wash day....

    1. OMG its my staple!! I get it from a beauty supply store a few towns away from me :)

  3. Can't believe you mentioned humecto in the post :-). I absolutely love it for sheer luxury, scent and not to mention the texture it has. As with all Keracare products, it has nourishment written all over it. Well worth the price!

    1. It certainly is. I'm such a huge fan. I've been a loyal user of humecto for years now. My hair just loves the combination of ingredients. Thanks so much for the positive feedback!!
