Good Evening Ladies,
Sundays are my wash days, have started to implement some new practices so will tell you about them. I am trying to do this wash regimen every 2 weeks, that way it’s not so much work once a week 🙂
First, to detangle my hair, I apply water, soybean oil and my VO5 Conditoner (Champagne Kiss with Silk Protein) to the section am working with, proceed to finger comb and place hair in large braids of about 15 or 20. Takes 2 hours.
Second, wash out hair out with a little VO5 conditioner and warm water, apply tea leave-in (See post about Black Pekoe Tea).
Third, apply my batch of Leave-in Conditioner (Recipe coming soon) then Kid’s Organics Pomade (Post about how it works coming soon too) to each section as I proceed to style my hair in smaller braids, do about 50 loose braids. Takes 2.5 hours.
Keeping the braids in for 2 weeks, so my hair is in a protective style which makes both of us happy, especially me, hahaha.
It does takes time, patience and lots of TV shows, LOL, but for me, it’s worth it plus for the next weeks I only have to moisturize daily and every 4 days do the LOC Method, cannot beat that.
Here are the new practices I added to my regimen thanks to various tips found from all you girls:
- Detangle Hair While Damp – Always washed first and then detangled, now it’s vice versa, prefer it also, I feel that my hair is not so hard to handle, because she is already stretched from prior styles, which makes it much easier in the long run.
- Finger Combing – A lot easier than I thought, but takes time, do not rush this, add lots of conditioner and comb away, you really are able to know your hair and be on the lookout for single strand knots or tangles, so this one is a keeper!!!
- Tea Leave-In – Did see less shed hair this time, very happy with that, plan on keeping you girls updated on this idea of the tea-leave in. If you feel comfortable just doing the tea rinse, by all means do so, whichever works for your hair texture.
Will continue to follow this regimen for the next 2 months in which I hope to achieve 3 things:
- Less Shedding
- Less Tangles
- 2″ Growth 😆 A dream right, but hey they say dream big, so I plan to.
Here is a pic for you, still learning to braid, cannot section hair in straight lines to save my life, so hello hair accessories.
Thank you for reading dolls and a good day to you all, Happy Stress Tangle Free Wash Days!!!
