Wash Day at 10 weeks post (sprucing up my salon style)

I paid $30 for this style. My stylist told me that it will last for about 2 weeks. After five days, my hair really needed some TLC. One, my curls were completely destroyed. Two, I was starting to get an itchy scalp. Three, my hair was hard, dry and dull-looking. Four, I was not ready to deal with my hair yet.
PLEASE EXCUSE THE LOOK ON MY FACE!!! I LOOK SO CRAZY, LOL. BUT I AM SICK AND SPENT ALL DAY AT THE DOCTOR'S THE PREVIOUS DAY, SO I AM RUNNING OFF LITTLE STEAM. I HAVE SOME REALLY BAD BUG THAT COULD TURN INTO THE FLU ON PNEUMONIA AT ANYTIME. I STILL LOOK CREEPY!!!! I WAS NOT GOING TO LET EITHER ONE OF THOSE ILLNESSES HIT ME WITH ME LOOKING LIKE THIS, BWHAHAHA! I ALREADY WENT TO THE DOCTOR LIKE THIS, BUT I PINNED MY HAIR DOWN TO LOOK A LITTLE LESS SCARY.

The only good thing that my hair had going for it is that my twists were holding up mighty nice. YES!
MY TWISTS LOOK REALLY GOOD AFTER FIVE DAYS. PLUS, I HAVE BEEN RELYING THIS SIDE TO SLEEP COMFORTABLY.

 So, today, I decided that I was going to wash my hair, the side with the curls, not my entire head. So, here is my wash day:

1. I decided that a pre-poo was in order. I got a dollop of Proclaim Cholesterol Conditioning Creme, a couple of drops of JBCO and a couple of drops of EVOO and rub it in my hands. I apply this all over my once curly hair. I bagged my hair for about thirty minutes and rinsed. My hair felt so good after rinsing, soft and manageable.

2. I shampoo'ed my hair using the Salon Care Honey and Almond Moisturizing Shampoo I mentioned in a previous post. Man, that stuff smells great. While lathering that stuff onto my scalp, I could feel my scalp becoming so clean with stripping my hair. After an amazing shampooing, I rinsed this out (review on this product in a few weeks).

3. I conditioned my hair with Suave Almond and Shea Butter Conditioner and rinsed. My hair felt alive and like butter. No more hard hair for me. The picture of my wet hair is before I detangled.

4. After my conditioning, I used the following products: Aphogee Keratin and Green Tea Spray, ORS Setting lotion diluted with water, Dark and Lovely moisturizing leave-in conditioner, aloe vera and Tressemme Heat Protectant.
-I sprayed the Green Tea Spray lightly over my hair.
-I sprayed my hair with setting lotion all over, including my twists.
-I applied aloe vera to my edges and my twists to refresh them.
-I sprayed the leave-in conditioner lightly over my hair, concentrating on my ends, to help with detangling.
-I carefully rodded my hair on orange cold rods.
-After rodding, I sprayed my hair with Tressemme Heat Protectant.



DRYING TIME! Boy, I was ready to come out from under there. After 30 minutes, I needed a break. I took a 20 minute break and was back under there for another torturing 30 minutes. What was bad was there was this one naked spot on my scalp that seemed like it was getting all of the heat. It was so uncomfortable. I was hoping this last 30 minutes would do the trick. WRONG! 40 minutes more, totaling at 1 hour and 10 minutes. AND MY HAIR STILL WAS NOT DRY!!!

Finally, it was dry. I took my hair down, apply alittle holding spray on it and got under the dryer for five additional minutes. I pinned pieces of my hair back. HERE ARE THE RESULTS:



It is not as full as it was when I left the salon five days ago, BUT my hair looks alot better than that above photo, lol. I am extremely happy with what I cam up with. My curls are soft and bouncy. My hair is extremely clean, plus my scalp. No more itchy scalp. I am exxtremely happy. I could not tell if my hair is damaged by the detangling of the stylist. I will know next week. I am going to practice twisitng my hair at home and see if I can get this style at home. It stays off my clothes. Its extremely youthful. NO COMBING! If I would anything different, I would use more rollers to achieve a fuller look.
I will review the shampoo that I used in a few weeks.

I believe that I am going to start doing a post on every week on a wash day.
I may be sick, but my hair looks sicker (in a good way). Enjoy your Sunday.

OH! Be on the lookout for This Sunday's Hair Chat. It is coming up soon.
