7 Weeks Post Relaxer: Retesting As I Am Cleansing Pudding

During my wash day last week, I used the As I Am Cleansing Pudding for the first time. Spoiler alert, my hair wasn't too crazy about it.

What I've learned though since I started my hair journey earlier this week that it usually takes a few times of using a product for me to finally conclude whether or not my hair likes it.

With that in mind, I decided to give the As I Am Cleansing Pudding another go.

My hair is loving dry deep conditioning as a pre-poo, so as not to upset my hair I pulled out my trusty Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner. This time I wanted to add some strength to my wash day so I mixed in some sunflower oil which is a ceramide. After slathering the mix on and I let it marinate with my Hot Head heating cap on for about 30 minutes. I also took advantage of this time to vacuum and mop my condo floors.


I tried the As I Am Cleansing Pudding again. This time I didn't let it sit for a few minutes as the directions said. I also worked it in at my scalp like I do with shampoo and didn't apply it to my hair. The result was my hair didn't feel as stripped as it did the first time.


Unlike my last wash day, I remembered the green tea rinse comes next, then the conditioner. After leaving both on for a few minutes and then rinsing, my hair felt a bit more moisturized.

Nothing new here. I continue to use a mix of Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave In Conditioner and Thermafuse HeatSmart Serum.

I opted to fully air dry. Even though that meant going to bed with damp roots. To keep them stretched I cross wrapped my hair. Sunday morning it was dry, but moisturized.


For church on Sunday morning, I put my hair in a side bun which looked really nice.
