Our Wash Day Experience hosts Jen from Just Grow Already and KLP from Saving Our Strands have created weekly wash day themes for September. The theme for week one is called Uncharted Territory and encourages us to try a new product, technique, or style we haven't before. My participation in the theme includes using my hew Thermal Hair Care heating cap during my deep conditioning and after air drying for a mini steam to bring back the moisture lost during air drying.
Additionally I am participating in the 30 Days of Moisture Challenge hosted by Jen of Just Grow Already and Jay of Relaxed Thairapy. I'll be participating by:
- Deep conditioning weekly with my heating cap
- Moisturizing and sealing at least every other day
- Co-washing every other week
Just this particular wash day I was able to incorporate the deep conditioning, moisturizing and sealing, and co-washing. Here are the details.
Deep conditioningI began with a 30 minute deep conditioning using Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner and my brand new Thermal Hair Care heating cap. After rinsing my hair felt amazeballs!
CleansingNext I did a tea rinse with green tea and then co-washed with a mix of Thermafuse Heat Smart Serum Condition, Suave Natural Infusion Anti-Breakage Shampoo with an awapuhi ginger conditioner, water and a little green tea. I was weary of how this mix would turn out, but my hair felt very moisturized during and after rinsing.
DryingAfter t-shirt drying for an hour, I put in my leave ins of Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea and Thermafuse HeatSmart Serum and then air dried. Since my hair tends to have a hard time retaining moisture when I air dry, I'm going to do a mini steam within the next day or two using my heating cap.

All in all, I'm happy with how my wash day turned out. No setbacks or issues, but I will be watching my moisture levels this week.
