Wash Day - Week 4

Lol. So...if you follow me on IG, you may have seen this pic: 
Yep, that's me laid up. Here is the story: Friday, I was at wok. I helped decorated a float for my high school HC. My job, which is at an elementary school, participated in the parade. So I decorated the float as a representation for my job. Not only did I decorate that float, but I walked the 2 mile parade route. After the parade was over, I went and walked around with my family at the tailgate party. Suddenly, everything went white. I couldn't see anything and I couldn't comprehend much. Next thing I know, I became unresponsive. I remember very little. I wake up in an ambulance. Diagnosis: my doctor told me that it was a lack of blood flow in my body. When the blood flow rushed back, it caused me to pass out and vomit in my unconscious state. It's horrific, especially since i do not remember anything lol. I am a lot better. Unfortunately, this incident has caused me to miss my 5K run. That is what hurts me the most. 

When I passed out and hit the ground, I took much grass with me to the hospital. Lol. My hair was filled with grass and charcoal bits. Jokingly, I asked someone at the hospital did they have satin bonnets handy for women on HHJs. Even though I was joking, I was extremely nervous about my hair rubbing against the cotton sheets in the hospital. 

Eventually, I was discharged. I was so tired and so weak, I did not so anything to my hair. I put my bonnet on and went to bed. 

Saturday, I got up and decided to pre-poo with some warmed oils and conditioner. Feeling alittle sluggish and weak, I left the pre-poo in all day. So I went to bed Saturday with my pre-poo still in. 

Sunday, I woke up and decided to have another lazy day of recovering. I was in no rush to wash my hair. That is, until I received a phone call from my aunt. Her 4 year old grandson was there when I became unresponsive and he saw when I was loaded in the ambulance. That poor baby thinks I have passed away. So she told me that she wanted to bring him by to show him that I was still alive. That motivated me to get up and wash my hair. I wanted him to see me like he always see me: big hair and all. 

1. I rinsed out my pre-poo, and I applied shampoo to my hair. My hair was filthy from the things I picked up on the ground  as I laid passed out. It felt so good to clean my hair. I rinsed the shampoo out. 

2. I followed up with a black tea rinse. Before the incident, I had been suffering from horrific shedding. So, it was liberating to finally tea rinse my hair. After I sprayed my hair with black tea, I put a moisturizing conditioner in top of it. I left it on for about 7 minutes and rinsed. 

3. I airdried my hair until it was about 70 percent dry. I added a few drops of vegetable glycerin into my elasta qp leave in. I applied my leave in and sealed with an oil. 

I believe my boo will recognize me. 
This is what he is used to seeing lol. 

My cousin, Jayden, loves his Lexie!!!
