Wash Day 

My beloved wash day. 

It had been 3 months since protein and 2 months since henna; it was time. 

I started by applying Komaza Pona to my scalp. I leave it on for about 1-2 hours. Then, I washed with Redken Cleansing Cream and let it sit on for about 3 minutes. It’s so amazing because when I wet my hair. It’s wet and hanging, but after I clarify, it has so much volume. 

So, after rinsing, I applied Komaza Protein. What I hate most about it is the aloe and my LP hair, however, it’s effective. I left it on for 15 minutes, no heat. Rinsed out with warm to hot water (I know but that aloe). 
Finally, my favorite part: deep  conditioning. I finally used my E’tae Carmel Treatment as a booster under my deep conditioner, versus as a pre-poo (once again, LP hair) and I’m definitely in love. I applied it first to my hair, then followed with Bee Mine. Now, I love the Bee Mine on its own, it’s perfect IMO. Not too heavy and not too light. However, after protein, inneed help, so I used the E’tae. What I liked most about it is that it doesn’t try to hard. And despite its claim, its moisturizing for me; not a Reconstructor. 

After all that washing, comes the styling. I let my hair stay wet, I do not let it dry. You have to do what works for you, but this optimizes my Moisture retention, especially in the winter. 

I apply my Annabelle’s (HG), then layer on Qhemet CTDG (HG), Haitian Black Castor Oil and finally My Honey Child Type 4. It looks like residue city when I’m done, but I double layer my satin scarf, then bonnet, so it all absorbs. These are how my twist look 24 hours later. Moisturized and shiny. My twists in the front are so weird because the texture is looser, but that’s what I’m working with. And here is my beloved bun. Between the water from lack of drying, good quality sealing and stretching (through twist), my hair is able to keep its moisture levels, even in this 30 degree weather. 
My regimen these days is boring, but it’s working.  

How was your wash day?
