Wash Day: 14 Weeks Post 4/19 Relaxer Touch Up

I'm back with another wash day post. Before I dig in I but I do want to put a disclaimer out that this wash day wasn't any different than my most recent ones. In fact it was similar to the one at 13 weeks post.

My relaxer stretch continues. Read about my wash day at 14 weeks post. | arelaxedgal.com

Pre-pooed: I sectioned my hair off into five sections applied an oil mix of sunflower and coconut oil, finger detangled, put on a plastic cap and sat under my hooded dryer for 15 minutes. Next I applied a keratin conditioner on top of the heated oil, put back on my plastic cap, and sat under the dryer again for another 15 minutes.

Cleansed/co-washed: I used Thermafuse HeatSmart Serum Condition for this and then followed up with a green tea rinse.

Deep conditioned: I did mix up this step a bit. After the green tea rinse I applied a conditioner mix of Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner, Suave Natural Infusions Anti-Breakage Conditioner, and L'Oreal Ceramide Total Repair 5 Restoring Conditioner. To get good penetration of the conditioner, I opted to steam. I did this, by wetting a towel and wrapping it around my hair. Then I put on a plastic cap and sat under my hooded dryer for 20 minutes. After my hair cooled for 10 minutes, I rinsed with cool water and did my hair feel soft, strong and won-der-ful.

Leave in and sealant: I t-shirt dried, applied Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave In that I mixed with a little sunflower oil, and got out any leftover tangles with my fingers.

Dried: I finished drying under my hooded drier with my new growth stretched. After my hair cooled for a few minutes, I put my hair up in a messy bun.

How'd your wash day go?

    1. Thanks Tonya. My stylist has a steamer and my hair always feels great after she uses it on my hair. So I've wanted to do them at home, but don't have the money for a steamer. I did some searches online and found a few people who used this method and raved about it.
