Wash Day: 7 Weeks Post 2/28 Relaxer Touch Up

So it's been a couple of weeks since my last wash day post. Partly from laziness and nothing new to report. I really didn't feel like washing my hair this week, but I really needed to because I'd been working out and sweating making my scalp and new growth feel dry. So I decided to push my wash day by a day.

Here's what I did:

Pre-poo

I used a protein based conditioner though I was supposed to deep condition. I totally forgot until I was almost 30 minutes into the pre-poo.


Cleanse

I used a moisturizing conditioner applied only to my scalp. I let the flow of the water push the suds down my strands so they wouldn't dry out. I shampooed once all over and another time in some areas that felt they needed some extra care.

Green tea and apple cider vinegar rinse

I get such good results with this I couldn't stand to skip this step. As usual, I applied this green tea and apple cider vinegar mix using an applicator bottle and massaged it into my scalp.

Deep condition

Since I didn't do it for my pre-poo I pulled out my Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner and slathered it on without rinsing out the green tea and apple cider vinegar. I paid close attention to my ends so I can avoid the split ends I had when I got my touch up. Still feeling lazy I put a plastic cap on and didn't even pull out my Hot Head conditioning cap. My deep condition lasted about 30 minutes.

The finish

To finish up I t-shirt dried for a couple of hours. Then I applied Nothing But Melted Shea Butter and grapeseed oil, sat under my hooded dryer on cool for an hour. Some of my roots were slightly damp, but I put on a satin scarf, my homemade nightcap and went to bed.

The result

My hair was totally dry in the morning and there wasn't any major puffiness, but my hair wasn't as smooth as I've gotten it in the past. No matter. I plan to wear updos pretty much all week.
