Wash Day: 6 Weeks Post 8/9 Relaxer Touch Up

For my six weeks post wash day, I opted to co-wash with As I Am Cleansing Pudding. I won a jar of this from a summer blog giveaway. I was excited to use this product for the first time since I'd seen so many great reviews.

Also, I used the Caruso Steam Rollers again on my relaxed hair. Sadly, I didn't get a chance to take any pictures of the steam roller curls. Good news though. I used my satin pillow rollers a couple of nights later and got some good pics of the resulting curls.

Pre-poo

Used Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Deep Conditioner with my Hot Head heating cap on for 40 minutes. So far so good.

Cleansed

I broke out the As I Am Cleansing Pudding. It has a slight coconut smell and is a bit thinner than I expected (it is called a pudding after all). I was surprised at how much it foamed and how little I needed to use. After using, my hair felt squeaky clean. So clean it felt a little stripped. Uh-oh.

Conditioned

Once again, I forgot to do my green tea rinse before I applied the conditioner (sigh). Similar to last week, I applied the Thermafuse HeatSmart Serum Conditioner, left it on for about five minutes, did my green tea rinse and applied L'Oreal Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Conditioner to combat the slight drying effect green tea has on my hair.

Leave in and sealant

After rinsing my hair felt clean, but not moisturized. I t-shirt dried for about 30 minutes and applied Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave In that I mixed with Thermafuse HeatSmart Serum.

Dry and style

I was able to air dry though my roots were still damp when I went to bed. They were still damp in the morning. So I hopped under my hooded dryer for 20 minutes, curled my hair with my Caruso rollers and went to church. My hair was fluffier and softer than I expected.

I didn't have the best experience with the As I Am Cleansing Pudding, but that tends to be the case when I first use a product. I plan to continue using it to see if my hair comes to like it.

What type of curlers do you use to style your hair?

  1. I've realized I too have to use a product more than once before I write it off! I'm only now wishing I hadn't given away my Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Moisture Mist! I've realized there are different ways to use them now!
