Wash Day: 1 Week Post 11/11 Relaxer Touch Up

This my first wash day in Florida! Since I'm staying with family until I find a permanent residence I don't have all of my hair tools at my disposal (particularly my hooded dryer). So I am tweaking my regimen to keep it simpler and shorter than usual.


With the simple and short theme in mind, I opted to use only these products: Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner, Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Shampoo, an apple cider vinegar rinse, a keratin oil conditioner, Eden BodyWorks Leave In Conditioner, and sunflower oil. I know it seems like a like, but it actually went very quickly. There wasn't any prepping tea for a rinse and I didn't use any heat for conditioning which I missed, but just adds time to my wash day.

Here's how I used the products:
  • Pre-pooed with Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Deep Conditioner for about 30 minutes with no heat.
  • Washed with Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Moisturizing Shampoo using an applicator bottle.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar for a rinse which I applied with a spray bottle and didn't rinse out right away.
  • Conditioned with the keratin oil conditioner. It was applied over the apple cider vinegar.
  • After rinsing I t-shirt dried for an hour, moisturized and sealed with Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave In and sunflower oil.
  • Air dried for three hours and then (gasp) used my blow dryer on low heat to dry my damp roots.
  • For bed prep, I applied coconut oil and put my hair in a loose bun on the top of my head.

My hair felt soft, like so soft I had to slap my hand to keep it out of my hair. It also felt moisturized. I was afraid that using the blow dryer would dry my hair out some, but it didn't. Not bad for a simple and short wash.

I also opted to wear my hair out the next day. While it felt a tad drier at the end of the day, it still had plenty of moisture and softness!

What products do you use to keep your hair soft?

  1. Woot Woot for a and simple #washdayexperience! Does the scent of your ACV treatment linger? Also how do you wrap your hair at night to get it so impeccably smooth?!?

    1. The ACV scent doesn't linger after a good rinsing.

      I need to do a tutorial on my hair wrapping method. It's pretty simple. Something to do for the new year.

      Thanks for visiting KLP!
