Wash Day (6 weeks post)

Here are this week’s wash day products:


1. I started off with a deep condition on dry hair using KeraPRO Restorative Treatment for Dry to Very Dry Hair. I absolutely love this stuff, and it has been a staple deep conditioner of mine for a while

2. After a few hours I hopped in the shower to wash the DC out. Then I shampoo’d with Creme of Nature Argan Oil Moisture and Shine Shampoo.

3. I applied GVP Nexxus Humectress and conditioned while I finished everything else I have had to do in the shower.

4. Once I got out of the shower, I towel dried my hair and sprayed my hair with Argan Oil Strength and Shine Leave-In Conditioner. I then applied Fantasia IC Heat Polisher Heat Protector Straightening Serum, because I planned to blow dry my hair.

This was my first time deep conditioning on dry hair. I plan to continue it, because my hair was very soft afterwards. Also, it is a total time saver. No more getting in and out of the shower.

Blow drying my hair was a total fail. I don’t know if I had my hopes too high (or maybe I’m just bad at it), but my blow dried hair was identical to my air dried hair. I started to flat iron, but it was late and I’m horrible at flat ironing.

A good thing that came from me blow drying is that I realized that I’m happy with my hair the length that it is (which is good, because I’m in need of a good trim). I beginning to think that I am on a journey to healthy, thick hair instead of a journey to growing new lengths. For now I’m happy between APL and BSL. I’d rather have thick hair at this length than longer thin hair. Over the course of the next year I’m going to be focused on growing out my layers and nape hair. I’ll also be focusing on thickening up my hair, and as I mentioned in another post I’ll be cutting about 4-5 inches over the course of the next year. Hopefully after this journey, I can focus on growing my hair to new lengths.

How was your wash day?

  1. I have not tried deep conditioning on dry hair, it seems that I need to do this because you are right it is tedious getting in and out of the shower. I’ll be washing my mini braids this weekend I might try it.
