I normally wash my hair at the minimum once per week but I did not have a wash day last week. The reason being I have a very bad sinus infection and was not feeling up to the task. Therefore I went through the entire week with a braid and a flat twist, please don't judge me.
I swear that my hair and health must have teamed up because not only was I really sick but my hair was thoroughly matted and tangled. The matted part I was expecting, however I really did not expect it to be so tangled. After crawling back to bed and having a nap I decided to tackle the mess that was my hair.
Here is how this wash day went done.
Prepoo- After properly detangling I coat my strands from root to tip with Cantu leave-in conditioning repair cream and cover with a plastic cap for 30 minutes. I did not want to use heat because I wasn't sure how it would affect my sinuses.
Shampoo- Once my hair was cool I rinsed out the prepoo mixture and shampoo with Creme of Nature Sunflower and coconut detangling and conditioning shampoo. As usual I only lather once before rinsing and wrapping my head with a t-shirt to get rid of the excess water.
Deep Condition- I then applied a mixture of Organics Hair Mayonnaise with tea tree oil and Jamaican Black Castor Oil to my hair and put on a plastic cap and a head tie for thirty minutes. After removing the plastic cap I allowed the hair to cool for fifteen minutes before rinsing. I rinsed with warm water and followed up with cooler water to close the cuticle.
Leave-in and Moisturizer- Once I was finished rinsing out the conditioner I t-shirt dry my hair for ten minutes. I then sprayed my hair with Crème of nature strengthen and shine leave in conditioner, and put into four sections. I then applied Kinky Curly Knot today detangler to each section and detangled then left it to air dry.
When the hair was about ninety percent dry I applied OGX coconut milk antibreakage serum and blow dry each section on cool. After blow dry the entire head I flexi rod set with eighteen flexi rods and call it a night.
I love how soft and moisturized my hair felt and looked. However, I was very pleased that I was able to detangle such a mess without losing hair and having to cut my hair. I love detangling with my oil mixes and is very pleased that I have perfect it to suit me.
