11 Weeks Post Relaxer: A Simple Wash Day

Now that I am over 10 weeks post relaxer, I am co-washing during the middle of the week to help keep my relaxed hair moisturized and new growth detangled. This mid-week co-wash is in addition to the full washes that I've been doing on the weekends.

Here's how my 11 weeks post relaxer full wash day went:

Pre-poo'd by separating my hair into four sections, sprayed my scalp, roots, and ends with apple cider vinegar (ACV) which made detangling a breeze. Then I put a keratin conditioner on each section and wore my heating cap for 45 minutes.


Cleansed with As I Am Cleansing Pudding and then did a green/black tea rinse.

Deep Conditioned with Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner which I left on for 15 minutes.

Drying consisted of applying Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave in Conditioner, sunflower oil, and detangling while sitting under my hooded dryer for 1 1/2 hours.


The result was a great and simple wash day with detangled and moisturized hair.

    1. I agree with Tomi! I'm still amazed at how smooth your hair is at 11 weeks post relaxer! How long do you plan on stretching? It seems like you could go on forever at this rate!

      Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience chica!

  2. Wow - I sometimes wish I could co-wash during the week but I can't cope with detangling thoroughly more than once a week. Is that an issue for you? For an easy wash day, I do the same steps as you. It's nice to keep it simple.

    1. Thanks for reading Lam. I've found that co-washing during the week helps me with keeping the tangles at bay. So detangling before the co-wash isn't such a hassle.

  3. Simple & Easy = Winning! Does the dryer not dry your hair out with sitting with it loosely under the dryer?

    1. I use the low or cool heat setting which doesn't have the drying effect that the hot heat setting does.

  4. Your hair at 11 weeks looks very smooth! I agree that co-washing during the week helps with tangles. I wish I had the time to do it though. :)
