Wash Night

Tonight I'm washing my hair. It's actually my poo day so I shampoo'd my hair and did a moisturizing deep condition. I used Garnier Fructis Length and Strengthen shampoo, and for my moisturizing deep conditioner I tried something a little different. I did a hot oil conditioning treatment. I heated up some olive oil and mixed it with my Garnier Fructis Fall Fight conditioner. I was really pleased with the results. It left my hair feeling very soft and moisturized.

If when you wash your hair it feels dry doing a deep moisturizing condition is prefect for restoring your moister. You can use the conditioner that you would normally use to Co wash your hair:
1. Place enough in a container to cover your whole head
2. Heat oils (olive oil, coconut oil, etc...)
3. Mix and apply
using your conditioning cap let it set for 15 or 30 min and rinse, and apply your moisturizer and style. You can use this as a pre conditioning and Co-wash after using as well.

Broadway presents: Hair Starring My Hair

Today my club hosted an event on campus and this is what I wore. My hair as of late seems to only like puffs lol. It maybe the change in weather idk, but twist outs and braid outs really aren't working. I'm just a supporting cast in the show known as my hair *sigh*

Trying a new product

Today while trying to re-up on my Beautiful Textures I came across this product. I'd read pretty good reviews on the line but I couldn't really find it. I was super excited when I actually found it today. It's a Co Wash by sofn'free apart of the Nothing But line. I'm very anxious to use it on Wednesday (my next wash day) and may even push my wash day up lol. I'll be sure to blog about my experience with this product.

My Crazy Hair

My attempt at a bantu knot out. I loved how defined my hair was after I took out the knots, but I really didn't style it well so here is the before shots of my hair. I watched a couple videos on how to do them but I guess I gotta practice a little more. I used Shea Moister Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Beautiful Textures Moister Butter.
