The Bantu knots came out better than I expected them to and I got oodles of compliments. I moisture with Cantu Shea butter strengthening treatment and seal with grapeseed oil before doing the knots. However, my second disaster can when it was time to detangle. I totally forgot to detangle before I did the Bantu knots and to top it off my ends needed a trim.
It took me almost an hour and a half to detangle with warmed coconut and grapeseed oil. To detangle I soak each section ( six sections) with the oil mix finger detangle followed by a comb before twisting.
Here is how the rest of my wash day went-
Prepoo- After my detangling session was done I applied Cantu Shea Butter conditioning repair cream to each section and cover with a plastic cap and a head tie for and hour. After allowing my head to cool down I rinsed with warm water.
Shampoo- Shampooed with Optimum oil therapy, as usual I only lather once. I co-wash mid week so I shampoo on wash day.
Tea Rinse- I tea rinsed by pouring the black tea brew over my head several times and allowed it to sit for five minutes before rinsing with warm water.
Deep conditioned- I deep conditioned with Motions deep conditioning masque under a plastic cap, a head tie and a satin bonnet for 40 minutes. I got this conditioner in my monthly We are Onyx box; this it the first time I am using it, I must say the results were favorable. I will do a review on it once I have used it several more times, however it left my hair feeling conditioned. After my allowing my hair to cool, I rinsed with warm water followed by a quick cold water rinse.
Leave-in- T-shirt dry for roughly ten minutes before apply Aphogee provitamin leave in conditioner and air dry to 90 percent. Sprayed a few times with Creme of Nature strength and shine leave in conditioner before moisturizing with ORS hair lotion.
Even with all the tangles it was a great wash day . How was your #washdayexperience?
