Wash Day + Hair Crush: The Jumbo Braids Side Bun

               Sometimes you stumble upon a hairstyle that just takes your breath away.  So is the case for the hairstyle that I tried to copy below. It is absolutely stunning! I am using a new deep conditioning this week. It is part of my quest to find the best deep conditioner for my hair type. I have tried a lot, believe me! I paid $8.00 for this one. Hopefully next month I will let you know if it is worth every penny. I already love the scent and the packaging:-)


{1} I did my overnight oil treatment with Jamaican black castor oil  again like I did last week. I will keep doing it until summer ends. So far it is helping me with shedding and split ends.

The Wash Day Experience

{2} I washed my scalp with a mixture of Heads & Shoulders moisture care shampoo + tea tree oil + peppermint oil.

{3} I went straight to deep conditioning with Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair deep conditioner. It felt like a protein treatment on my hair with absolutely no slip.

{4} I rinsed it out and added a moisturizing conditioner to my hair and left it on for about 10 minutes.

{5} After rinsing out the moisturizing conditioner, I towel dried my hair for just a few minutes.

{6} I added my Scurl activating moisturizer and left it on for a few seconds before adding my Shea butter mix ( Raw Shea butter, Sunflower oil, Extra virgin olive oil, black astor oil, Tea tree oil, coconut oil, and Peppermint oil)

Hair of The Week

                 I saw this hairstyle on Elle.com, and I couldn't help but copying try to copy it. The hair itself makes me think of a stewardess' hat, but the models make it look so lovely. They are wearing Mosaert's debut collection. I think the hair is a piece of art. What do you think?


 How was your wash day?
