This wash day, I made (well DH actually) made a very sad discovery: dandruff. While I was showing him my new growth and complaining that I have about 2 months of growth in 6 weeks (don’t roll your eyes) he was touching my scalp and looked closely and saw I have dandruff. I’m not sure if it’s the hormones or because my scalp as been itching like crazy and I’ve been washing every 2 weeks lately, but I know I must go back to washing weekly. No question about it.
So I started by prepooing (you read that right!) with some coconut oil. This is the good stuff and was handmade by DH aunt in Dominican Republic. All I smelled was coconut heaven. I massaged it into my scalp and let it sit for a couple hours.
Then I washed with Eluence Acidifying Shampoo (?) by diluting it in a 1:1 ratio (since is 2x concentrated) and it worked really well.
Followed with SheScentIt Okra Reconstructor. I was going to use the Komaza since I had it first, but it says to keep on for 20-30 minutes and I really didn’t feel like the hopping out the shower to come back and rinse twice; even though I just use my shower head once I get out. The SSI only 10 minutes and it’s all I needed.
I rinsed some of it out and layered that with Naturelle Grow Coconut and Mango deep conditioner for about an hour. Then I rinsed and was able to detangle.
I put on my turbo twistie for 40 minutes and judging that my hair was still dripping water, I take that the protein was needed because my hair held on to a lot of water. I can’t really comment on the SSI because I didn’t bother to really feel its effects, but my hair didn’t feel hard, rather softer and rejuvenated. I can see myself using it again.
I followed with the LCO method using Annabelle’s Perfect Blends Blueberry Cheesecake Leave-In Conditoner (L) and Pear Apple Creme (C) and Dominican Magic Silk Shine Hair Serum (O).
I twisted my hair up and went to bad. How about my hair never dried. Well my roots did, but not the length. My hair actually feels pretty strong and not lacking and is bouncing back. I don’t hate this LCO combination though water is my ultimate liquid in LCO.
How was your wash day?
