Wash Day

The ohhh so dreaded wash day…


I sectioned my hair in five sections.

I washed with Paul Mitchell Shampoo One. This will be my permanent shampoo because I’m gonna stop fronting; I love it. It was such a beautiful mistake. I really cannot find a reason to hate it. My hair holds treatments better since using it… I noticed I don’t M&S as much since using it too.

I followed up with a coffee rinse. I used French Roast in my French Press. French Press’ allowing the oils in teas and coffees to not be filtered out, so you get all the benefits of your brew. I let it sit at room temperature for about 4 hours before using. French Roast is also a dark coffee (meaning its roasted longer so caffeine isn’t super high) and its not as acidic as other coffees. It makes my scalp itch more on the same day I use it, but its not unbearable.

I didn’t rinse it out. Instead I just slapped some Silk Dreams RCA on top of it. I’ve never done this before. The RCA is super thick and spreads very well. A little goes a long way. I email Jorien to ask if I should use a steamer or heating cap, but she replied saying you don’t need heat. Sadly, I was under a heating cap when I got the reply. I think the heat helped though. My hair was super soft and had mucho slip. I need to dream bigger!

After rinsing, my hair was AMAZING!!!! That was the easiest and fastest rollerset ever! I didn’t have to use my medium Herculea Sagemann comb, the fine tooth one glided right through.

I was a little heavy handed on the CHI and luckily I clarify next week. My curls were bouncy and sexy! I was feeling myself.


I wish I could have ran outside like that, but this humidity would have put my 122lb behind in check quick. I would have ran out like the horrible little person I am and ran back home a sad little girl.

Clearly its in a bun today.



I need to stop playing myself. Back when I was reaching BSL, I could get away with not wearing scrunchies; now I need them. My hair is too heavy now so my buns droop as soon as I walk away from the mirror.

Is your wash day treating you well?

  1. Your rollerset results were AWESOME Tasia, but you already know how I feel about that gawjus bun of yours……And umm about my wash day, it hasn’t started because I’m being super hair lazy :(. I need to get on that.

    • This bun is getting a life of its own. I can’t control it anymore but thanks. I need to start thinking out the box like you. I wish I could prolong my wash days, but by the 5th day, its so hard.

      • Have you ever tried silicone hair bands? I love them. They don’t cause friction like the cotton ones and I hear you about prolonging your washes…3-4 days and these fine strands are limp/lifeless city.

      • I actually used to use them, but for some reason they dented my hair more so I stopped using them. I think I still have a couple but I’m not sure. Bigger bands cause more tension so I usually stick with the skinny ones but idk why because they don’t hold my hair. I’m not delusional, I just don’t want to be bothered half the time. #hairdrama

  2. your hair is lovely! love the bun too! yahhh u found your staple shampoo! before i read your post i was gonna suggest quidad’s cleansing oil shampoo, i haven’t used it myself but it SOUNDS awesome. the reviews are tempting but the price is hot 😦

    • As long as there is a sephora around, I can definitely get a sample. I hear their line is pretty good.

      Thanks. If I get it and try it, I will definitely post about it 😉

  3. I agree with the ladies, you have the best bun-game! I too apply my DC right on top of my tea rinse. I swear I get better results that way. Are you liking coffee rinses way better than tea? Can you do a post comparing the two techniques? Would love to hear your thoughts and to see if I need to make that switch!

    • I want to try applying the DC on top of the tea rinse because I have not tried it. As of right now, I won’t comment one which I like more until I try it a few more times, but I can give it about 2-3 more wash days before I compare and do a post on it. I will definitely get up on that!

    • Hey Ebony,

      Thanks! The Silk Dreams line is definitely spoiling me. I recommend it to anyone looking for something worth the money, but not ashamed of spending a little either. If I liked her shampoo, Id exclusively use her products.
