The Healthy Hair Diary: Wash Day Diary – New Growth is Popping

I am back…. I have taken a long break, longer than expected, however starting a YouTube channel is a lot more time consuming than I realised. I love that I can just sit in front of the camera and make a video however; I don’t enjoy the editing afterwards. I am starting with a wash day as I miss documenting my wash days and having a journal to look back on to see what’s working and not working for my hair.

I’m still trying to determine if I prefer doing my wash day on a Saturday or Sunday. I prefer to pre-poo my hair overnight and always worry that if I pre-poo on a Friday night, the next morning I may ended up needing to go somewhere and end up stuck, whereas Sundays tend to be our family lazy days so it makes sense to do it on a Sunday as there is no rush to get it finished.  My logic for doing my hair on a Saturday morning however,  is that I if I decided to go out on a date night or anywhere else, my hair is already washed and I can wear it how I want to.

Sunday 5th November 2017

For this wash day, I pre-pooed my hair on Saturday night using extra virgin olive oil as I have run out of extra virgin coconut oil, covered my hair and went to bed.
On Sunday morning, I shampooed my hair using Crème of Nature Moisture & Shine shampoo lathering twice, and then towel dried my hair whilst mixing my deep conditioner mix. I used the ORS Nourishing conditioner which is a light protein conditioner mixed with two teaspoons of Jamaican black castor oil. I applied it to my hair in four sections and then covered with cling film and sat under the hood dryer for 30 minutes.

I honestly forgot how much I love this conditioner, when I removed the cling film to rinse my hair, my new growth had melted and I could run my fingers through my hair. I am 10 weeks post relaxer and my new growth is out of control, thick to the point where air-drying is no longer an option and as much as I moisturised my new growth, it would tangle and make my scalp hurt. This conditioner gave my hair life and I will definitely be making this a staple conditioner for when I’m stretching my relaxer going forward.

Once I rinse out the conditioner, I t-shirt dried for 30 minutes then sectioned my hair into four. Using my favourite Crème of Nature Strength & Shine Leave-In Spray, I spritzed and detangled each section with a wide tooth comb. Once detangled, I applied Aunt Jackie’s Quench leave-in and sealed with Inecto Coconut Serum, combed through my hair with a smaller tooth comb and then allowed my hair to air-dry for a further 15 minutes before going on to blow-dry each section with cold air.

When dry, I moisturised my hair in the same sections using Root2Tip Triple M Miracle Moisture Milk and sealed with my Hot Six Oil mixed with Jamaican black castor oil, I also oiled my scalp with JBCO as well. As I had no plans for the day except to go to a fireworks event in the evening, I put my hair in a low bun with a satin scrunchie and covered with a satin scarf until I had got ready.

Blow-drying made such a huge difference to my new-growth, it’s smooth and easy to detangle, easy for me to part to oil my scalp and style and I am seriously wondering why I didn’t blow-dry last week instead of air-drying and causing myself such issues.
