What day is it? Wash day!!!! Once again this was a simple wash day with great results. Here's what I did.

Pre-poo

I sprayed apple cider vinegar (ACV) on my hair and scalp then applied Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner on top. I left this concoction on for about 35 minutes without heat.

Unlike last week, I opted to apply the ACV earlier in the process. My scalp has been feeling dry and was flaking in some areas. (I think this is due to the weather changes and the elements I'm exposed to from my walk to and from my office building from the parking lot.)

Cleansed

For my hair cleanser this week I used As I Am Cleansing Pudding.

Conditioned

Applied the OGX Keratin Oil Conditioner. This has become a staple for now...if it ain't broke...

Moisturized and sealed

After rinsing out the conditioner and letting my hair air dry for an hour my hair felt so soft that I contemplated not moisturizing. Then I realized that was probably a bad idea that I would regret in the morning. Out came the Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave-In Conditioner, sunflower oil, and coconut oil.

Dried

After cringing through drying my hair with a blow dryer last wash day, I couldn't bring myself to do it again. So I decided to air dry. Even if it meant going to bed with damp hair. Which I did. I also woke up with damp hair. Out came the blow dryer which I used on low heat. I really need to get one with cool air or a cold shot. Black Friday sales here I come.
