Wash Day: 5 Weeks Post 2/28 Relaxer Touch Up

After a great few busy days, including some off of work to spend time with my Mom who was visiting from North Carolina, the last thing I felt like doing was wash my hair. But I couldn't take how dry my hair was starting to feel and my scalp was starting to itch. Ultimately I kept my wash day simple and stuck to what's worked in the past.

  • Prepooed for over an hour with Dessange Oleo Replenishing Oil Conditioner. Yes, I know I said I didn't care for it, but may be ok as a prepoo conditioner and using it this way allows me to get rid of it.
  • I decided to clarify this time using SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo in an applicator bottle
  • Next was the green tea, apple cider vinegar rinse that I massaged into my scalp and left in while I deep conditioned for 40 minutes with Eden BodyWorks Jojoba DC and hot head cap
  • After rinsing everything out I air dried with a t-shirt for about two hours
  • Next I applied Nothing But Melted Shea Butter for leave-in and sat under my hooded dryer for an hour using cool heat. My hair wasn't fully dry, but was close enough
  • Finally I sealed my relaxed hair with grapeseed oil and applied a few stain pillow rollers to give my ends some curl

In the morning I didn't like how the curls looked and my ends felt dry. Since I was headed out to church I applied Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave In Conditioner on my ends and pulled my hair back in a half ponytail.

The Wash Day Experience



  1. I love how thick and full your hair is. Awesome washday!

  2. I agree with Tomes, your hair is so thick -- I absolutely love it.

  3. I love all that texture in your hair! I need to follow your footsteps and start using my "not-so-great" conditioners as a pre-shampoo! Genius idea!

    How many satin rollers did you use to get your curls?

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience chica!
