Normally I wash my hair on Fridays but I just couldn’t bring myself to WANT to do my hair at all. Last week was a lazy week. Aside from deep conditioning on Tuesday and moisturizing and sealing only twice last week, I pretty much left my hair alone. Aloe vera gel kept my edges nice and smooth so I rocked a bun (changing the position every day) for the week. I finally ended up washing my hair on Sunday but only because my scalp was in of a good cleansing after my workout.
 Pre-pooed with safflower oil.
 Shampooed with Redken Hair Cleansing Cream.
 Coffee rinse. I normally use Folgers (instant) coffee to do my coffee rinses but a comment left by a reader made me wonder whether using regular coffee (that requires a filter) makes a difference. The verdict? No difference.
 Applied Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Daily Treatment for 5 minutes then rinsed.
 Wrapped my hair in a towel for 15 minutes to soak up the water from my hair. Deep conditioned with my steamer using Silk Dreams’ Vanilla Silk Cream Moisture Dream conditioner.
 Wrapped my hair in a t-shirt for about 30 minutes minutes. When my hair was about 70% dry, I applied my leave ins: Darcy’s Botanicals Daily Leave-In and KeraPRO Anti-Frizz Serum. I detangled the same way I always do, shown here in this video. My hair is still damp in the picture below but it felt so soft, light, and my favorite: smooth. Y’all know I love smooth hair! I don’t know why I stopped using a cotton t-shirt to wrap my hair after rinsing out my deep conditioner but I should have never stopped. Letting my hair dry a bit in a t-shirt gave me smoother pre-detangled hair than when I use a towel.
 After detangling, I damped my edges with a little water and applied aloe vera gel to my edges. Then I brushed in the aloe vera and tied my edges with a silk scarf and let my hair air dry.

 Once dry, I did a big bun and covered everything with a larger silk scarf. Buns on freshly air dried hair make me swoon.
|Would you believe there’s only ONE bobby pin holding this bun together, no elastics.|
All in all, I’m so content with my hair right now. After I detangle my new growth gives my hair major volume but I’m loving how low-maintenance my hair is during the week. Smooth edges and a big air dried bun makes for a happy, no muss no fuss week. I’m nearing 3 months post y’all… I’m almost half way through this (attempted) 6 month stretch. Whoop whoop!
