Next, it was time to cleanse using the Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea CoWash. After a few uses I plan to do a full review, but for now here are my first thoughts. I really like it. It has a lot of slip, the consistency isn't too thick or too thin. It has a slight coconut smell, but it doesn't last long at all. I was worried about how effectively it would my hair, but it did a good job and it also rinsed out well. I'm curious to see how it performs during my next use.

How To Co-wash Relaxed Hair


Since I was loading up on moisture I wanted to balance it out some so I applied some of the OGX Keratin Oil Conditioner on my ends to add a kick of protein. I've almost used up this product and plan to buy more though I'll have to wait till I've used up a few other conditioner products first.


I t-shirt dried for about an hour and then applied Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave-in Conditioner and sunflower oil (that bottle I bought this summer seems endless). I also put some tea tree oil on my scalp in areas where I tend to see flaking towards the end of the week. Instead of using my blow dryer, I air-dried for the rest of the night by putting my hair up in a twist under my satin cap.

How To Dry Your Hair With Less Damage

Relaxed Hair Wash Day: 5 Weeks Post Relaxer Touch Up |

In the morning my roots were still damp so I finished drying using the low heat/high air setting on my blow dryer. I wore my hair down for a few hours but started to feel dry so I put it up in a bun and didn't have any other issues for the rest of the day. All around it was a good wash day.

What new hair products have you tried lately?

  1. Your wash day looks super simple. :-) Were there any products that you didn't like from that line?

    1. I've only tried a few products, but the one I didn't care for was the Jojoba Moisturizing Shampoo. It was more stripping than moisturizing.

  2. High five for a successful wash day! Do you dilute your ACV before you spray it on your scalp?

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience chica!

    1. I do dilute the ACV. I do roughly one part ACV and two parts water.
