I started my wash day with a twist out which was successfully done with damp hair, Silk Dreams Wheat Germ Butter Conditioner and KeraVada Amla Oil. I didn’t think the Amla oil would be good because it had two of my hair’s arch enemies, Grapeseed and coconut, but my twist had bounce, shine, definition and softness I have never had. My hair was soft for 3 days.
I washed Saturday morning with Redken cleansing Creme by diluting it in a one liter smart water bottle because my applicator bottle was busy with PM shampoo one.
Usually, I don’t do this when I clarify, but I did a coffee rinse. I used breakfast blend, burdock, slippery elm, horsetail, marshmallow and Oatstraw. Nice!
Follow-up with Millcreek Organics keratin Conditioner for about 10 minutes, but since this doesn’t get hard, I rewet it a little, but didn’t rinse and used some Silk Dreams RCA mixed with some KeraVada Oil. I noticed that if I put the amount of conditioner in my mixing bowl and stir it a bit, it actually applies better and I use less. Then I laid down under my heating cap for about 45 minutes while I attempted to find a free way to watch American Horror Story: Asylum (didn’t work).
I had pretty good detangling but I still used some kanechom Shea butter so I could have a bit of slip.
I had my spray bottle and CHI Silk Infusion handy, got my combs and rollerset.
I just had to dust a bit because I knew my ends went through it with that braid out, but they really didn’t. I barely took anything off, so wearing my out once in a while is not hurting my hair life:
My waist is really far, literally a year away (aye dios) but I’m getting there the healthy way so I’m not complaining (that much). However, as much as I love the bodily figures that make up the women in my family, I’m cursing this low waist….
In the meantime, I will continue long hair dreaming.
One Day, It Will Happen
