Wash Day | Mix Masala DC

Hey everyone, happy Monday πŸ™‚

ThisΒ 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…

Mid-week experiment with twists

There’s something I want to share about myself: I love experimenting, it is a part of my DNA. Whenever an idea pops into my head, I am inclined to try it, no matter what. And my hair gets a fair share of experiments tried out on it.

So earlier this week while I was doing my night hair care stuff (scalp massage, moisturising and sealing), I thought to myself why not try some twists for a bit of curliness (y’all know I love me some curls). So I sectioned off my hair and moisturised using AfroBotanics Conditioning Moisturiser and procedded to twist each section, mind you, this was my first time ever trying this.

Playing catch up

I have been lazy with regards to wash days lately, I last properly washed my hair 2 weeks ago – I did do a co-wash last week Wednesday because I needed to change my hair style from the perm rods look.

I was invited to attend Parliament a couple of weeks ago – so I really needed to have my hair looking good, so I decided to do a co-wash and a re-stlye on Wednesday. I followed the same routine as a normal wash day, but instead of using shampoo, I used the Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturising Conditioner. I used The BodyShop Banana Conditioner for instant conditioning and the Dabur Vatika Intensive Nourishment Conditioner mixed with castor oil as a DC. I managed to use the last bits of the instant conditioner and the DC *whoop whoop* – more products in my empties stash. I put my hair in 8 flexi-rods and kept them overnight. In the morning, I took them out and created a pinned wavy look for the day. I took some pictures when I got home in the evening. Continue reading

Shoulder length to TWA

Hey everybody! I washed my hair over the weekend, over 2 days – I must say that deep conditioning overnight is working very well for me lately. During the week, I moisturised and sealed twice, and I definitely had a manipulation heavy week. Earlier the day on Saturday I went swimming in the ocean and did not protect my hair at all *bad Lungi* – so I new that my wash day had to be moisture focused. I also wanted to rock a curly style for the week. I love styling up my hair earlier on in my stretch because my hair is easier to handle, and I looooove curly hair.
