It’s been a long time that I wrote a post about my washday, but don’t worry I’m back. This couple of weeks has been a bit of a struggle with my hair. The struggle are the hair loss and split ends. I have been lazy with moisturizing my hair at night and I notice that my hair reacts immediately to that – dry hair means breakage –
For the routine I wanted to start with a pre-poo treatment, but I changed my mind – laziness -. In two section I washed my hair using Mizani Moisturfusion Milk Bath Shampoo. I think it’s my third time using this shampoo and I like the fact that is has a milky texture and I doesn’t dry my hair out. My hair feels good after the wash. It’s bouncy and I can easily glide my finger through my hair. Continue reading

For the wash routine I decided to do a ‘hard’ protein treatment, because last week I texlaxed my hair. I can’t remember when I did a protein treatment – I really need to do better –
The routine started with washing my hair. As always I shampooed my hair in four sections using ApHogee Deep Moisture shampoo. The hair loss during the wash was minimal. After that I wrapped my hair with a towel and let it sit for 15 minutes, to soak all the water.
I finally got the time to relax my hair at 21 weeks post. I planned to relax my hair last week, but due bad timing it wasn’t possible. I also wanted to do a protein treatment one week before, but I changed my mind and will do the treatment next week. So before the relaxer it didn’t prep my hair.
This time I wasn’t really happy with my new growth. The inches of growth was okay. But if look at the positive side, my new growth was soft and manageable. I could have stretch my hair for a longer period, but I want to stop at 20 weeks post.

At this moment I’m 19 weeks post and I am happy with my new growth. I can still manage. I said that I will relax my hair when I reach 20 weeks post, but I first want to do a protein treatment to prep my hair for a relaxer. During the week my nape suffered from dryness. I would moisturize at night, but in the morning it was still dry – I need to find a remedy for my nape -.
Pre poo treatment
For the treatment I used the oil mix (Jamaican Black Castor Oil x Coconut Oil) for the scalp and (Grape seed x Sesame seed x Coconut oil) for the hair. Before applying the oils I warmed it up with hot water. – I never use a microwave to warm up oils – for an hour I let the oils sit on my hair.

Yeah I really wasn’t feeling for a wash day, but it had to be done. So I decided to keep my wash day short and simple.
I really had a hard time to choose a product for my wash. And then I remembered that I bought a new shampoo product in October, Organix Revitalizing Pomegranate Green Tea Shampoo. This is my third Organix shampoo that I’m trying out and I don’t think that the shampoos are a good fit for me. While washing my hair I wasn’t able to run my finger through my hair. Sometimes I like to finger detangle my hair, but no ma’am my hair was stiff.

The last couple week I have been concentrating with getting rid of my split ends. In my recent post I mentioned that I need to take a break with using a flat iron on my hair. I’m really suffering from long split ends. My goals for this year is to reach BSL (Bra Strap Length), but first my main focus is retaining my length.
At this moment I’m 17 weeks post. I planned to texlaxed my hair at 20 weeks post.
PRE POO TREATMENT
More and more and loving doing a pre poo treatment with oils. In sections of four I applied an oil mix (Grape seed x Sesame seed x Coconut oil) to the length of my hair, concentration on my ends. For my scalp I used a different oil mix (Jamaican Black Castor x Coconut oil). I let the oils sit on my hair for about an hour.

It’s been a while I used a clarifying Shampoo. The last time was in the month Ocotber. I try to clarify my hair once a month. For the wash I used Tresemme Deep cleansing shampoo. – my sister washed my hair for me. She washed my hair two times in sections of four- This wash was quick and simple, as it should be.
Although I used a clarifying shampoo, my hair wasn’t extremely dry. Last week I did a pre poo treatment while using a steamer. I think I applied too much peppermint oil to my scalp and now it’s a bit sensitive. So it was a must to clarify.

Last week Saturday I flat ironed my hair. I noticed when my hair is straight I really don’t moisturize my hair. That a big no no, but I do it every time. I need to find a light moisturizer to keep my hair healthy when it’s straight.
Before the pre poo treatment I make sure that my hair is detangled. During detangling there was a lot of hair lost. That’s what I get for not moisturizing my hair the whole week. – my hair is really sensitive when I don’t moisturize – I started the treatment with applying my oil mix (Jamaican Black Castor x Peppermint Oil) on the scalp. In sections of 4 I gently massaged the oil on my scalp –this moment is really relaxing – After that I applied Organix Pomegranate Green Tea Conditioner on the rest of my hair. This time I decided to use my steamer for my pre poo treatment. Woei after steaming my scalp was sensitive. I think I applied too much of my oil mix, because the peppermint was on fire!! I’m really loving the steamer.
