My wash days have become very easy and maybe a little boring. I try to use different products each wash day to keep the excitement alive but it is slowly dying. The first five or six months of my healthy hair journey I was super excited to wash my hair and style it; but now it feels like a chore just to get it started. It maybe the winter blues and the understanding that I have wear my hair pinned up or curly so as not to damage the ends. Anyway enough of my lamentations.
Here is how this weeks wash day went;
Prepoo with Cantu shea butter leave in conditioning repair cream and coconut oil under my conditioning cap for thirty minutes. I allowed my hair to cool the rinsed with warmed water.
Shampooed with Optimum Oil Therapy as usual I only lather once before rinsing with warm water. I love this shampoo because it not only lather but it does not leave my hair feeling dry and hard.
Tea rinsed with my black tea by pouring it over my head repeatedly for about five minutes before rinsing wit cold water.
Deep conditioned with Creme of Nature Intensive conditioning treatment under my conditioning cap for 45 minutes. I then allowed my hair to cool for close to fifteen minutes before rinsing with warm water followed my cold water.
T-shirt dry my hair for about an hour before applying my leave ins in and moisturizers.
Leave ins- Creme of nature strength and shine leave in conditioner and Crecepelo leave in conditioner followed by Ettenio Mangoshea moisturizer and OGX coconut milk annti breakage serum. After which I roller set with twelve 2 inch rollers. The following morning I pinned the back up with a side swept bangs.
I need to get this hair into a long term style for the winter because it is not only getting dry but the hair at my nape getting tangled whenever I wear a coat. I might do some crochet braids after the holidays.
What are some of your go to styles for winter?
