I washed the conditioner and oils out with the SheaMoisture Manuka Honey and Mufura Oil Intense Hydration Shampoo. I know, I know that I didn't like it the first time I used it but I decided to give it another try as I wanted to cleanse with a moisture-based product. I mixed the shampoo with water in an application bottle. My hair felt better this time after using the shampoo.

Next was my green tea, apple cider vinegar rinse that I followed up with the Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor.

To finish up I t-shirt dried for a few hours, applied the Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave In Conditioner, and then tension dried with my blow dryer for a few minutes till my hair was mostly dry. I sealed with almond oil and put my hair up in a bun for the rest of the day. So far I'm really liking the almond oil for a sealant. It made my hair feel really soft and added a nice shine.

That night I braided my hair in one braid down the back and used a satin pillow roller on the end. The result was some very soft and subtle waves.

After a couple of days, the waves smoothed out as you can see in the pic above. To keep my hair styling simple and to protect my ends I have been wearing my hair up for most of the week either in buns, clips, or a ponytail. 

How are you wearing your hair this week?
