The chase of the soft moisturized tresses is always on, therefore this week was no exception. I really wanted to recreate the lovely feeling I had last week. Since, I was not going to do a protein treatment two weeks in a row I focused on using products that are moisturizing.
Here is how I went about this weeks wash day.
Prepoo- Detangled with warm coconut oil and prepoo with Cantu conditioning repair leave in cream and avocado oil mix under my conditioning cap for 45 minutes. I love using the Cantu repair cream as a prepoo because I get the benefit without it weighing my hair down.
Shampoo- After rinsing out the prepoo mix, I shampooed with Creme of Nature Red Clover & Aloe. As usual I only lather once before rinsing out with warm water. I like this shampoo even though it doesn't lather as much but it does leave my hair feeling clean and moisturized.
Deep Condition- Deep conditioned with ORS replenishing Conditioner and Jamaican Black Castor Oil mix under my conditioning cap for an hour. Since I have being adding JBCO to my conditioner I have noticed that the amount of shedded hair is less and also that my hair appears fuller and thicker. Once I rinsed out the conditioning mix I t-shirt dry for ten minutes; I could not stop running my hands through my hair because it felt so soft and moisturized.
Leave-in conditioner and Moisturizer- Applied Creme of Nature strength & shine leave in conditioner, followed by Ettenio Moisture milk. I don't normally roller set my hair wet but I wanted to have big fluffy hair so I sprayed my hair with Lottabody setting lotion and roller set with twenty-two 1 1/2 inch rollers. Then sat under my bonnet dryer for and hour.
Well let me tell you my hair was so soft and fluffy I could not believe that it was my hair. The moisture level was something I have not experienced in a very long time. I think the protein treatment from last week was the catalyst so I'll certainly add more protein treatment to my regimen.
