Wash Day Files: Happy hair in twists

How's it going you guys?

The new My Regimen page is up now. I'll leave the link at the bottom. You'll click abi? Mmmwah. Please na.
       I didn't do much this wash day. My hair is just loving me back so it doesn't need much.
Before last week I had been dealing with insane amounts of shedding and breakage. The coffee rinse I did last week took care of shedding, while getting rid of my weak, bone straight ends tackled the breakage and just turned my hair around.

For this wash day, all I did was use the Shea Moisture Purification Masque + castor oil (as part of the Hairlista castor oil challenge) on hair and scalp for an hour under a shower cap; rinsed whilst gently rubbing my scalp, tshirt dried and applied my usual leave-ins: Shea Moisture Replenishing conditioner to damp hair and sealed with Olori Damage Be Gone Treatment. Finger detangled next. My scalp and hair were clean (no chemicals means nothing I use leaves deposits or residue in my hair), hair felt like butter.

 I was amazed at how little hair came out. It just shows how much the things I did last week worked.
Here's proof:
After detangling this week
I was losing this much weekly before my coffee rinse and trim. Insane.
I went back to twists this week. I even did flat twists on the sides instead of braids and I think I'm getting better at those *wiggle wiggle*


You can join the #WashDayExperience and see how other ladies pampered their locks. Like, it's a lot of hair love going on in the world.
Have a look at My Regimen, the page is up now.
   Take this :* :* :*

  1. Beautiful twists! Twists are so versatile! I bit that yours would look great pulled up into a bun. Like a protective style for your protective style!

  7. Heya..

    Been following your blog for some time now and I have to say even though I am rocking a low cut atm (fyi very very low haha), I am really impressed with your hair journey and how you say things.

    Keep up the good work. When I decide to start growing my hair again at least I have a reference point to work with. :*
