Wash Day Session: Recovery from JACKED-UP-HAIR!


Today is wash day [September 8, 2013], my last wash day was September 1, 2013 when I had used some products sent to me for reviews. I had not so favourable experience with the line.

On September 3, 2013 I had to run through my stash to see what I could find to remedy the disaster. [I did a pre-poo with Original Moxie Emollience Pre-Poo Treatment and then steam with it for a further 30mins. I then co-wash with Tressemme Vibrantly Smooth Conditioner for a boost of Moisture and leave-in with Oyin Hair Dew seal with Shea Mix and Oyin Pomade. – My hair breathed again]

Anyway I still feel the need for another extra kick of Moisture, suppleness and manageability. So I decide to do another wash session today. The products below is what I will be using today.



[1]. Pre-Poo overnight and finger detangle – Original moxie Emollience Treatment
[2]. Co-wash with Tresemme Naturals Vibrantly Smooth Conditioner
[3]. DC/Steam for 20-30mins with Aubrey Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner
[4]. Spritiz with Hairveda Hydra Silica Mist
[5]. Seal with Olive Oil
[6]. Leave-in will be Reve Essential Moisturizer - [Creme Brulee]

My Wash Day Session: Take #3


Overdue wash day session again [September 1, 2013], so this was my last wash date. This session I will be using some products I was sent many months ago to review.

I started out with a pre-poo using coconut oil and I finger detangled. I decide that from this month for about the next 2 months I will be giving finger detangling a go again. I tried it out at the start when I BC 16 months ago but I didn’t appreciate it then. Neither did I fully understand how to work with my hair and what would work to help make finger detangling easier and effective.

Anyway, the night before I took apart my twist out and work through each twist-outs with some coconut oil and gently work it through from tips to root and then from roots to tip throughout my hair.

After my whole head was detangled and coconut oil was applied to it, I then cover my hair with two steam caps and scarf up for the night.

The [pic] below is my hair the next day after the over night pre-poo and the coconut oil I used to pre-poo with.
