Marley Hair Turban Updo | #WashDayExperience

                Hello Everyone! I am just going to pretend that it hasn't been a long time since I joined the wash day experience. The reason is not because I haven't washed my hair. The weather has not been the best lately and I don't really believe in indoor  lighting when it comes to taking pictures. I managed to take some pictures inside today, but I had to take at least 49 before I could find a few good ones. Anyway, I was playing with my hair today and I came up with a hairstyle. I was not sure what to call it at first, then I realized that it looks exactly like a turban. So, I called it Marley hair turban updo. I used one pack of Kanekalon Marley hair to create it. I guess it is appropriately named. I know the theme for the linkup this week is tea for two, but my hair did not really need a tea rinse this week. Let's get into how the wash day went!

The Wash Day Experience
              One thing that I was not big on doing before was detangling my hair.  I did not have the patience for it. Now, I detangle my hair using a cheap conditioner. While the conditioner is still on my hair, I use a moisturizing shampoo to wash my scalp. Depending on how my hair feels after the shampoo, I condition before deep conditioning my hair. Sometimes conditioning my hair is not necessary because the conditioner used to detangle my hair keeps it soft even after shampooing. I love to deep condition with heat now. The number one reason is because it cuts the time in half for me. Instead of deep conditioning for 30 minutes, I only do it for 15. I used Cantu Argan Oil cream as my leave-in. There is a review about it here if you missed it. I used a little too much, which resulted in my hair feeling heavy the next day.

Hair of the week

               I used Marley hair to create that style, like I said before. I sectioned my hair in 3. I braided (cornrows) the two sides using my own hair. For the front, I created a hole in the middle of my own hair like I was getting it ready to insert a fake ponytail. I inserted the already twisted Marley hair and tied it up. I used bobby pins to secure the twists as I used them to cover my cornrows. I hope that makes sense!! My wash day was okay. The dryness is still in the air.  I just want to hide my hair and not do anything to it right now. I am contemplating buying some silk turbans. If only I could wear them to work! I hope you like the hairstyle. How was your wash day?

  5. I have forgotten something, Nerline. Somehow I am no longer able to give you my g+ I click on the g+ button, it opens up, I share, but it never shows up. It only happens at your blog, Nerline. Did you change something or am I suddenly too blonde?
