Wash Day + Hair of The Week: Loose braids bun with Twisted Side Bang

http://www.chicfromhair2toe.com/2015/04/wash-day-hair-of-week-loose-braids-bun.html

         The most challenging part of getting ready for the wash day experience is finding a hairstyle to share with you guys. I try to find protective styles that can last me a week, but I always end up messing it up. Sometimes it is just because I use too many pins and they feel uncomfortable, or the hair is braided too tight. Today's hairstyle was very easy to create. I used about two packs of 100% Kanekalon Marley hair to achieve it. It sounds like it's a lot, but you know they don't put enough hair in the packs these days. I washed my hair and made sure it was moisturized before doing it because I want this style to last at least one week.

Wash Day Experience
{1} I used castor oil mixed with a few drops of peppermint oil to massage my scalp. I left it on overnight. 
{2} I used TREsemme moisture rich shampoo to wash my scalp. 
{3} I quickly conditioned my hair with Alberto V05 Passion Fruit Smoothie moisturizing conditioner.
{4} My Pantene Truly natural has been okay on my hair , so I keep using it to deep condition it.
{5} I dried my hair with a T-shirt for a few minutes.
{6} Moisturizing with Scurl "No Drip" Activator Moisturizer keeps my hair softer longer, a good way for me to have enough moisture for this hairstyle.
{7} I added some extra virgin olive oil mixed with Jamaican black castor oil to seal the moisture in.

            I did my hair the next day. I used some Eco Styler gel to help my edges stay in place. The middle part was created with two loose braids going in circle. As you can see, I added three flat twists in the front to create the side bang.   I think this hairstyle can last me until the next wash day if I wrap my hair before going to bed at night. 
 How was your wash day, darling? Did anything exciting happen?

  6. You are not the only one! I used to love dressing up my iphone until a few thefts ago :(. Now I dress it up in the ugliest case and put the worst stickers on it - all to ward off another theft.


    But yours is super pretty!
