It was wash day and I was in no mood for a long wash day so I co-washed!

Wash Day…hair we go!

  • I started off by spraying my hair with water then loosening my plaits.

Ready for wash day!
  • The next step involved co-washing my hair (simply washing my hair with conditioner), this Alberto vo5 Moisture Milks: Strawberries and Cream Moisturizing Conditioner is an absolute fave of mine – it makes my hair feel soft and smell heavenly.

As a hair junkie on a budget, I always use cheap moisturizing conditioners for my cowash/pre-poo and it provides me with results I need (win win for me).

  • After co-washing, I rinsed with lukewarm water followed by an ACV rinse to remove any additional build up.

ACV is a must have!

The ACV rinse not only left my hair and scalp clean but healthy and free from impurities :). I have noticed that after every ACV rinse, my hair does not end up dry, henceforth, I will increase the frequency of my ACV rinses.

  • Then I proceeded to t-shirt dry my hair!

Yay hair is clean whoop whoop
  • Once my hair was damp and clean, I sectioned and applied my leave-in mix, then detangled with a big comb and finally sealed with my Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Recently, I have found my hair only enjoys my Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave-in Conditioner when it is mixed with a thicker moisturizer or leave-in as it provides my hair with slip and softness!I only just realized this because on wash days, after using this my Shea Moisture JBCO leave-in, my hair feels nice then the next day it’s like I never even did anything to it days prior.

My solution was mixing some of my SoftSheen Carson Wave Nouveau Moisturizing Lotion with the Shea Moisture JBCO and voila the perfect leave-in (pictured below).
