Good Day Passionistas! Sunday is hair day, so today I wanted to share with you my current wash day routine. I have been natural for about 5 years, and try to make it a habit to wash my hair every week. Depending on the style I wear my hair will I skip a week . Today I will be using the following products: Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Haor Shampoo, Conditioner and Leave in Conditioner repair cream, Hask Keratin protein deep conditioning mask and hair oil, and lotta body styling foam.
I start by washing rinsing my dirty hair with warm water, then applying the Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Conditioner. That’s right! I condition my hair first. There is not no specific reason why I do it. I just dont see the point of user a conditioner to wash out then applying a deep conditioning mask. So to hydrate my freshly rinsed hair, I use conditioner first. After washing out the conditioner, I then shampoo the roots of my hair making use I massage the shampoo throughout my entire hair. Then I rinse out all the shampoo, at this step be sure to rinse out all shampoo. Once all the shampoo is rinsed out of my hair, I like to use a cottong t-shirt to pat my hair dry and apply the Hask deep conditioning mask. I use a healthy amount of this product and let it sit on my hair for at least an hour. After letting the product sit, I rinse it all out with cold water and apply a small amount of leave in conditioner repair cream.
This week I will be using my flexible rods to curl my hair while it is wet. To complete this style I comb out and section my hair in four parts and work on rodding one section at a time. Most people like to sit under the hair dryer, but I try to do away with applying heat to my hair, so I let the rods sit overnight to air dry. Yes, the rods can be a little uncomfortable to sleep in, but they look good in the morning. In the morning I take out rod one by rod and separte the curls with my hands. I use a dime sized amount of the Hask hair oil to add shine to my curls. This style is easy to accomplish and usual last me up to 4 to five days before recurling.
