Here is how this wash day went;
Prepoo- Detangled with coconut oil before applying Organics Cholesterol Tea tree oil conditioner , put on a plastic cap and left on for 15 minutes.
Shampoo- Rinsed out the prepoo mix and shampoo with my beloved Creme of Nature sunflower and coconut detangling conditioning shampoo twice before wrapping my head with a t-shirt to get out the excess water. I am so happy I was able to replace my favorite shampoo; since it is a moisturizing shampoo it always leaves my hair feeling so soft and moisturized.
Deep Conditioner- Deep conditioned with JBCO and Crecepelo deep conditioner under a plastic cap for thirty minutes, before rinsing with warm water followed by cool water. I then wrapped my hair in a t-shirt to dry. I have been using JBCO one form or the other since January and my hair has gotten thick and fuller. I have been using pointers from the different Castor Oil challenges out there to facilitate my year long challenge.
Leave-in conditioner and Moisturizer- When my hair was 90% dry, I sprayed it with Aphogee Provitamin leave in conditioner and leave it to air dry. Once my hair was completely dried I sectioned it into four and apply Elasta QP Olive Oil and mango moisturizer to each section and blow dry the roots using low heat. At eleven weeks post I wanted stretched roots because with the heat wave we are currently experiencing I was in danger of having a big puff at the end of the day.
Styling- Since I wanted to try something different I decided that Bantu Knots was a safe bet. Therefore I applied Palmers Smooth N Hold pudding to each quarter and divided the quarter in two or three sections then two strand twist and before rolling the knots. Even though I haven't done it in awhile I think I did a great job. The end results remind me of when I was a little girl and we got chiny bumps (as they are called in Jamaica).
The next morning I added Ettenio Seal and Shine to my fingers and took out the knots. I was so happy with the results I felt like shouting hallelujah. Unfortunately the curls only last two days before they look like a rats nest. To keep the loo going I put my hair in a few flexi rods and it turned out just lovely. I must say my hair still look and feel moisturized.
