Wash Day: 11 Weeks Post 2/28 Relaxer Touch Up

I'm almost three months post and my hair seems to behaving though there are some mornings I don't know what to do with it and have fleeting (not really serious) thoughts of cutting all off.

As my new growth gets longer my wash days are getting simpler. This week I introduced my hair to new a protein product.

  • Pre-poo'd doing an overnight deep condition like last week (yes, I might be hooked) using Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Deep Conditioner
  • Cleansed using a moisturizing shampoo that I massaged only onto my scalp
  • Treated my hair with Aphogee 2 Minute Keratin Reconstructor which I left on for about five minutes and rinse out with my green tea, apple cider vinegar mix
  • Conditioned with Suave Natural Infusions Moisturizing Conditioner for about five minutes
  • T-shirt dried for an hour
  • Applied Nothing But Melted Shea Butter to my damp hair in sections and then tension dried with my blow dryer and finished off with coconut oil
  • That night I cross wrapped my hair to get it smooth 

The next day I clean, smooth, moisturized hair that I styled using the headband tuck. For the rest of the week I'm alternating between buns, braids and half ponytails.

This was my first time using the Aphogee 2 Minute Keratin Reconstructor and I really liked it. My hair feels stronger, softer and heavier. I haven't decided whether I'll use it every wash day or every other wash day.

  2. OMG I just used the EdenWorks conditioner this week for the first time! I'm really feeling it too! The Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor is definitely my holy grail protein treatment, my hair seriously can't live without it

    1. Thanks for visiting Tomes! I've found that tension drying, coconut oil and cross wrapping my hair at night gets my hair the smoothest.

  4. Beautiful styles chica! I used to use Aphogee 2 Minute Keratin Reconstructor like it was going out of style when I first started my hhj. I'm not sure why I stopped using it...I probably just got bored. Silly pj tendencies!

    About how long does it take for you to tension dry your hair? Your hair looks so thick!

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience!

    1. When tension drying my hair I like to try and let it air dry for a while. Otherwise it can take an 40-60 minutes for it to fully dry.

  5. Great wash day! I have never really used the Aphogee products before, always though they would be too strong for my hair.

    Your hairs looks like it loves it! happy 3 months post!

    1. The Aphogee Reconstructor is a light protein and you only keep it on your hair for a few minutes which is why I use it.

      Thanks for reading Yvonne!
