Wash Day 1 Week Post Relaxer Touch Up In A New State

This my first wash day in Florida! Since I'm staying with family friends 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 some specific products.

The products I used were the Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner, Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Shampoo, an apple cider vinegar rinse, the OGX Keratin Oil conditioner, the Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave-In Conditioner, and sunflower oil.

I know it seems like a lot, 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 both just add time to my wash day.

To start my wash day I pre-pooed with the Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner for about 30 minutes with no heat.

After rinsing that out I shampooed with the Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Moisturizing Shampoo by putting it in an applicator bottle and mixing it with some water.

After I shampooed, I used Apple Cider Vinegar for a hair rinse. This time I applied it with a spray bottle and didn't rinse it out right away.

For my conditioner, I used the OGX Keratin Oil Conditioner by applying it on top of the Apple Cider Vinegar and left it one for a few minutes.

Once I was done in the shower I t-shirt dried for an hour, moisturized, and sealed using my current staples of the Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave-In Conditioner and sunflower oil.

I then 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. My hair 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!
