Wash Day: 6 Weeks Post 8/9 Relaxer Touch Up

For my six weeks post wash day, I opted to co-wash with As I Am Cleansing Pudding. I won a jar of this from a summer blog giveaway. I was excited to use this product for the first time since I'd seen so many great reviews.

Also, I used the Caruso Steam Rollers again on my relaxed hair. Sadly, I didn't get a chance to take any pictures of the steam roller curls. Good news though. I used my satin pillow rollers a couple of nights later and got some good pics of the resulting curls.

Used Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner with my Hot Head conditioning cap on for 40 minutes. So far so good.


I broke out the As I Am Cleansing Pudding. It has a slight coconut smell and is a bit thinner than I expected (it is called a pudding after all). I was surprised at how much it foamed and how little I needed to use. After using, my hair felt squeaky clean. So clean it felt a little stripped. Uh-oh.


Once again, I forgot to do my green tea rinse before I applied the conditioner (sigh). Similar to last week, I applied the Thermafuse HeatSmart Serum Conditioner, left it on for about five minutes, did my green tea rinse and applied L'Oreal Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Conditioner to combat the slight drying effect green tea has on my hair.

Leave in and sealant

After rinsing my hair felt clean, but not moisturized. I t-shirt dried for about 30 minutes and applied Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave In Conditioner that I mixed with Thermafuse HeatSmart Serum.

Dry and style

I was able to air dry though my roots were still damp when I went to bed. They were still damp in the morning. So I hopped under my hooded dryer for 20 minutes, curled my hair with my Caruso rollers and went to church. My hair was fluffier and softer than I expected.

I didn't have the best experience with the As I Am Cleansing Pudding, but that tends to be the case when I first use a product. I plan to continue using it to see if my hair comes to like it.

What type of curlers do you use to style your hair?

  1. I've realized I too have to use a product more than once before I write it off! I'm only now wishing I hadn't given away my Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Moisture Mist! I've realized there are different ways to use them now!

  2. That's exactly the way I love to apply my tea rinse, but just like you, I keep forgetting. Your hair looks so full.

  3. Your hair looks so beautiful and shiny.

  4. Cute results! I always find a way to make products i don't like work. Can't afford to waste money. I hope your hair likes it.

  5. I love that you use satin rollers to main your caruso steam roller set! Your hair looks so moisturized!

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience
