Due to this being a co-wash day, my cleansing product of choice was Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea CoWash. My hair felt so moisturized.

Next was the tea rinse. For this, I used green tea which I was a little concerned about because it can sometimes make my hair feel dry and I wasn't deep conditioning this week. To reduce the amount of drying that could happen I applied the green tea directly to and only to my scalp using an application bottle. The result, no dry hair.

After rinsing it was time to dry off which I did with a t-shirt for a couple of hours. I finished drying under my hooded dryer, but not before applying Nothing But Melted Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioner as my leave-in. Once dry, I finished off with sunflower oil on my ends, wrapped my hair, and went to bed.

The next morning I didn't want to wear my hair down. In my 2015 Hair Goals post, I listed a goal of protecting my ends by wearing up-dos at least five days each week. Well, last week I wore my hair up for only four days. So my goal this week is to wear an up-do every day. Here's my first one, side french braids with a bun in the back.

What hairstyle did you sport after your last wash day?

In , , ,


  1. Cornrows! I should really go back to tea rinses. Your hair looks great.


  2. This is a SUPER cute style! One of my faves. Hi Five for using an applicator bottle to apply your tea rinse! That's exactly what I do and it definitely keeps my hair from feeling brittle afterwards!

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience chica!
