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?
