Wash Day: 3 1/2 Weeks Post 4/19 Relaxer Touch Up

I think this will be a shorter wash day post even though I literally had a full wash day. Since I didn't work today, I had the whole day to spend on my hair. Keep reading to see what I did.

I detangled with extra virgin olive oil, my fingers, and a seamless comb.
I then braided my hair into six braids.

Even pre-pooed with a keratin conditioner on my braids. I'm not exactly sure how long my pre-poo was, but it was at least an hour.

I then rinsed my relaxed hair in warm water and co-washed with Herbal Essences Naked Cleansing Conditioner. Twice. My hair felt soft after that.

After rinsing I deep conditioned with Thermafuse HeatSmart Serum Condition with a shower cap and no heat for about two hours.

Express conditioned with Design Essentials Stimulations Super Moisturizing Conditioner.

T-shirt dried for...well I'm not totally sure how long. I fell asleep on the couch and the t-shirt had fallen off my head.

I opted to not use my Pantene Moisture Mist Detangler this time (gasp), but there really weren't any leftover tangles and what there was I was able to easily get out with my fingers.

Applied my leave-in mix of Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea Leave In Conditioner and sealed my hair with an argan oil serum.

After air-drying for a while, my hair was about 50% dry. But I opted to finish drying under my hooded dryer on low heat.

The result of this was day was no major shedding or breakage. My relaxed hair felt soft and moisturized. After taking the pictures, I tucked my hair away in a bun.
