Wash Day Plus My New Crochet Wig with 100% Marley Hair

            When I told my sister that I wanted to make a crochet wig using 100% Marley hair, she got me everything that I told her that I needed to make one. And then she asked me, "how are you going to make that wig?" I had the idea in my head for a long time, but I was not sure how I was going to do it either. I need more people like her in my life. She believed in me enough to buy all the tools that I needed. She also bought this huge bottle of shampoo for me. It took me three days to make the wig because I had to leave my project to deal with day-to-day activities. I will have a tutorial on the wig sometimes next month and show you the final products. Now let's talk about how my wash day went!


  1. Pre-poo: Haitian Black Castor oil mixed with Cayenne pepper, applied to the scalp. A light headache confirmed that there was some oxygen flowing. 
  2. The Wash Day Experience
  3. Shampoo: Biosilk Hydrating shampoo. I lathered twice because it is a sulfate free shampoo and I had oil on my hair. Washing once was not enough.
  4. Conditioning: Alberto V05 Clarifying conditioner.
  5. Coffee rinse: I did my coffee rinse and left it on my hair for about 5 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
  6. Deep Conditioning: I was running out of my Pantene Truly Natural. So, I mixed it up with my TREsemme Moisture Rich Conditioner, plus a little bit of castor oil.
  7. Moisturizing: Giovanni Direct Leave-in Conditioner.
  8. Sealing: Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

 Hair of the week

                I will try to curl the wig next week. Right now it looks very big. Adding some curls will tame it down a little. I really love the way it came out. Now instead of installing crochet braids, I can just throw my wig on as a protective style. I will also sew in a silk wig cap to protect my edges. My wash day was not too bad. I think I got some castor oil overload, haha! I will try to correct that later this week. How was your wash day?
