Wash Day + Hair Of The Week: Flat Twists with Side Bun

           Howdy y'all! Can you believe it is almost the middle of the week  already? I don't know about you, but I am feeling what being 37 feels like! I am one hot flash away from going cray-cray. I am already feeling the summer heat you guys. I have to wash my hair more often now because spring feels more like summer here sometimes. A simple wash with a conditioner or a co-wash, as we call it, is all I need after a 45-minute workout. I try to deep condition every time I wash my hair, but if I am going out, I just skip it and do it when it's really necessary. I am putting my 100% Kanekalon Marley hair to some good use these days. And my Jamaican Black castor oil, too. The only thing missing is a PiƱa Colada to help me stay cool and sane.    


{1} Scalp treatment overnight with Jamaican black castor oil.
The Wash Day Experience
{2}Clarified with 1 Tsp baking soda diluted in warm water the next day.

{3} Washed with Alberto V05 herbal escapes clarifying conditioner.

{4} Clay rinse with Bentonite clay

{5} Deep conditioned with Pantene Pro-V Truly Natural deep conditioner for about 30 minutes

{6} Sealed with Haitian black castor oil, plus African Shea Butter.

Hair of the week

           If your hair texture looks slightly like mine, you need to have 100% Kanekalon hair in the house. There are so many styles you can create with this Marley synthetic hair. I used the same hair that I used here to flat twist my hair. I secured the bun with some bobby pins on the side. I need some edge control, girl! Yes, I do!
My wash day was a bliss. My hair stays soft for a full week now. I don't have to undo my protective style to moisturize it. I hope you had an easy wash day, too.
