Wash Day: 9 Weeks Post 11/11 Relaxer Touch Up

When you saw this post you may have thought "Wait. Did I miss the eight weeks post wash day?" No you didn't. I didn't write one. I did a co-wash day that was successful but uneventful. Also, I didn't have a lot of time due to just getting back into town from my Christmas vacation and getting ready to get back to work.

This wash day is a special one. It's the first one in my new place! Here's how it went.
A relaxed hair wash day: 9 weeks post relaxer touch up. | arelaxedgal.com

Pre-pooed with heat

I based my scalp with apply cider vinegar, put L'Oreal Paris Ceramide Total Repair 5 Restoring Conditioner on my strands and then put on my Hot Head heating cap.


For this I used a macadamia oil shampoo. I forgot I had bought this shampoo as it'd been in storage. My hair felt drier than anticipated after drying.

Deep conditioned

I used my go-to for this, Eden BodyWorks Jojoba DC. My hair felt soft and moisturized.

T-shirt dried

 Did this for about an hour.

Finished drying and styled

 For my leave-in I used Nothing But Melted Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioner and then finished drying with my blow dryer on low heat/high speed. I wanted to use my hooded dryer, but didn't feel like setting it up. After drying I sealed with sunflower oil.

I cross-wrapped for bedtime and in the morning my hair felt like silk and so moisturized.

I decided to use my Caruso Rollers to get a little bump in my hair for church the next day. I really liked the results, but unfortunately the lighting for the pictures I took was awful so they didn't reflect how good my hair looked. 

How did your wash day go?

  1. The Eden Body Works Jojoba DC is on my list of products to try. Have you tried any of the other products?

    1. I have tried other Eden BodyWorks products. I use the Coconut Shea Leave In and the CoWash. I also tried the Jojoba Shampoo and didn't care for it. It was too drying.

  2. Your hair is pretty. I also want to try out the Eden BodyWorks products as well. When you leave the tshirt on for 1 hour, does it help your hair to be completely dry or is it still damp?

    1. Thanks Tamara. After t-shirt drying my hair is still damp.

  3. It seems you had a pretty good wash day. :-)

  4. A smooth washday with great results at 9 weeks post - nice! your hair looks really healthy :-)

  5. Woot woot for discovering new products that you forgot that you had! The same thing happened to me when we moved (and I was forced to clean out my stash) Now that I know how much stuff I have, I can't even justify one new purchase! I swear you have the smoothest cross wrapped hair EVER!

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience chica!
