Since I was so tired on Saturday morning, I decided to do a quick co-wash using my Alberto V05 Herbal Escapes Clarifying Conditioner. The goal was to have a clean scalp without using any shampoo. So, I applied a little bit of my DIY coconut oil to my hair, followed by some of the conditioner. I threw a plastic cap over my head, wrapped it up with a towel, and sat in the recliner. The plan was to leave the mix on for 10 minutes to make detangling easier, but I woke up almost two hours later. I was shocked! But I did start by saying that I was tired, right?

- I detangled my hair and rubbed my scalp for a few minutes. I rinsed the products out using warm water. My hair felt funny afterwards.
- I was not planning on using any leave-ins right away since the coconut oil has been doing such a great job keeping my hair soft. So, I used some Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Conditioner to add some moisture to the hair and rinsed it out 5 minutes later.
- I quickly dried my hair with a towel and added a generous amount of pure coconut oil to my hair. I twisted my hair and went about my business.
When I woke up the next morning, I managed to rock a 45-minute twist-out, which of course turned into an Afro. That's all I had time to do since I was late for my morning walk before going to church. When I came back from my walk, my hair was a hot mess. It felt crunchy, frizzy, and unmanageable. I tried to put it in a bun, but I totally failed. A few flat twists helped until I came back from church. I quickly used the L.O.C method when I got home, followed by the baggying method before I went to bed on Sunday night. You name it, I used it. I continued to use the same methods until yesterday because I refused to wash my hair again.
