Another Wash Day

    After swimming (I still can't swim) I went home and continued my wash day. I already pre-pooed with my Herbal Essence Fight-the-Fall.

   I used Ultra Swim shampoo to get the chlorine out of my hair. At the beginning of the month, I clarify my hair. I love clarifying  but I recently learned that it shouldn't be done all the time. I just love that extra clean feeling. But it is drying to my sclap.

    So protein was the main focus this wash. Why? Well I believe I will texlax next week (cross your fingers). So I mixed three conditioners that have protein in them for my deep conditioner. ORS Replenishing Conditioner is in my travel bottle on the bottom left corner of my photo collage. My mix was about 80% of that. I added the Joico K-PAK because I want to finish it; Giovanni's Smooth as Silk conditioner because I love it.
Last piece to twist. Loving all the texture!

    Deep conditioned for almost an hour. Maybe it was in my head but I felt a little protein stiffness from my hair. No problem, I hit it with my Aphogee balancing moisturizer. After protein treatments I always use this (top right of photo collage).

    I didn't do a hard protein treatment because I didn't want to do the extra step. Lazy? I don't care! Anyways, I dried my hair in a 100% cotton tee for a half hour. I applied my Shea butter mix with Giovanni Direct Leave-in (protein) and sealed with Organix Milk Serum. I twisted my hair in bigger twists, not too pretty, but I'm sure the results will be worth it.

Happy 4th of July


  1. Girl I kept eyeing that Giovanni Smooth As Silk all last month! I'm pretty sure it's going to be my one product purchase for the month.
    Btw I bet your hair turned out great with the jumbo twists. HHG! :)

    1. Thank you Andrea! Giovanni Smooth as Silk is my favorite hair line. It's what I used when I first started my HHJ. It would make for a good product buy.
