Wash Day | Mix Masala DC

Hey everyone, happy Monday 🙂

This wash day was about a week and a half after my last one; I had been wigging and wearing hats in between so there had been zero manipulation to my hair. I am currently trying to work down my DC stash so I am mixing products that are close to being finished, so in that way I can finish 2 or more products in one wash day *score!*.

I had an evening wash day that lasted from around 18:00 till 22:30, this is including putting my hair in perm rods and drying it for 30 minutes. Let me not give you any more spoilers, here is how everything went…

Prepoo: Coconut oil. I used it to detangle and immediately jumped into the shower.

Shampoo: Aunt Jackie’s Oh So Clean Moisturising & Softening Shampoo

Deep Conditioning: A yummy mixture of Dabur Vatika Black Seed Hair Mask Treatment Cream, Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturising Conditioner, AphoGee 2 Minute Keratin Reconstructor and Castor Oil. My new brand of conditioner smelled so great, I think I may be on to something. I used my steamer to get the mixture way into the hair.

Leave-Ins: Beautiful Textures Tangle Taming Leave-In Conditioner and Motions CPR Triple Action Leave-In Conditioner

Moisture and Sealing: AfroBotanics Conditioning Moisturiser and Olive Oil

Styling: I used water and the Schwarzkopf Smooth ‘n Shine Conditioning Foam Wrap to dampen my hair and give it a slight hold, I then put my hair in perm rods, the process took about 45 minutes. I sat under my soft bonnet dryer for 30 minutes to get the excess water out before I went to sleep. In the morning I had a lovely head of curls which I rocked through the day.


My hair tends to turn brown towards the ends, at first I thought it was because I use honey. However, I haven’t used honey on my hair in the loooongest time, so I guess that’s just how it is. I’m not complaining though – I kinda like the colour.


I have pretty much given up on preserving curls overnight because I totally suck at it – so the next day, I wore a head scarf and had only the top of my hair out. It was a pretty good save for my ‘do.

By the third day, it was a dud – so I put my hair up in a doughnut bun for the week. I used my steamer to get the last curls out of my hair and used Afrobotanics Conditioning Moisturiser and castor oil to seal the deal.
