This is the color…that needs to remain deep conditioned and moistured.
Today is wash day…so I prepped my entire area, my tools (products, combs, clamps, hair net, shower cap, towel, mirror, etc) out and went to work. My hair is 6 months natural, and I have colored it at least 2x. I know…bad, bad.
No worries I have moisturized, deep conditioned, protective styled and asked for forgiveness from the hair gods. I have watched several YouTube vidoes, and the one that inspired me today was
BlakIzBeautyful ….thank you for doing such a great job with your tutorial!
So this is what I did:
- Sectioned my hair in 6
- clipped each section
- Poured warm water, into a spray bottle
- Got my hot oil on hand
- Sprayed each section with water, then saturated each section with hot oil/water.
- Clamped each section
- Put on a cap
- wrapped my hair with a towel
- watched tv, for 30 mins
- Headed to wash out hair
- shampooed hair
- deep conditioned hair
- additional 30mins, with cap and towel wrapped around my head.
- washed that out
- twisted entire hair with Shea Butter, and Eco custard to hold my twists.
Lets just say it was a really long day…my shoulders should look beautiful in the morning. I’m not sure what I will do with my hair tomorrow…but im certain it will involve a scarf and some loose hairs 🙂
Wash Sunday is no joke…seriously was a 4hour process…and I loved every moment. It was soothing and it was therapeutic.
Till next time.
6 months natural, this is the third time I have made the big chop to my hair. Its familiar territory, cutting my hair, watching it grow, exploring different styles. Hair is hair…it will grow back. I think I enjoy the variety of reactions I get with outrageous hair colors and hairstyles whether it be super long or hella short. People are funny, and no matter what the majority say, they love hair…and lots of it.
Good thing I married the one guy who has witnessed me in almost every hair style possible. Well we sleep in the same bed, so her really knows what this black women looks like with or without hair. He loves me regardless…as a matter of fact, he helps take my weave out when needed. A football game and promised pizza and wings…and he is the best assistant hair provider I’ve had…IN HOUSE. Kudos to my hubby, for being so awesome.
Any who, tomorrow is wash day, and I don’t plan on wearing any protective styles for awhile. See for the last two weeks I have worn a wig…nice dark long wig. With all long wigs or weaves, I get annoyed with it, tangling, touching my face, and it being hot. But its a protective style for my rush type life.
This week, will be a bunch of head scarfs, and some twist outs. Lets see the reaction this week.
