I really didn’t want to wash my hair. I kept putting it off. I thought about pre-pooing, detangling, and then whatever style I’d whip it into… and I just felt exhausted. My well of transitioning patience is running low y’all. Unless it rains soon, there will be a drought and drastic measures will be taken.
Said well almost ran dry last night. I’d just finished deep conditioning and was stared at my hair seriously considering the big plunge. I snapped this pic and sent it to my friend who helped talk me off of the ledge… for now.
Here’s my wash day recap:
 Pre-pooed with Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner. I maybe moisturized my flat ironed hair twice since my last wash day (shame on me I know, but life hasn’t let me be great lately) so I had to use a good moisturizing deep conditioner for a pre-poo to give my hair some TLC.
 After pre-pooing for about 45 minutes under my Hot Head heating cap (this one), I rinsed the conditioner out and co-washed with Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk Cleansing Cream.
 Next I tea rinsed with… you guessed it… peppermint + rooibos + green tea.
 After leaving the tea in, and wrapping my hair in a towel for 15 minutes to soak up all excess water, I applied SheScentIt Curl Moist Conditioner to my hair and deep conditioning for about 15 minutes under my heating cap. I normally spend about 45 mins – 1 hour under my heating cap, but it was past 11pm and all I wanted to do was finish up my hair a.s.a.p.
 Once I’d rinsed the conditioner from my hair, I t-shirt dried for 15 minutes and then set my hair with my curlformer dupes.
For leave-ins I used Kurlee Belle Thirsty Kurls Leave-In Conditioner + Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum + Paul Mitchell Moisture Mist to rewet any sections that had dried too much. I used 89 curlformers and let them air dry over night.
The next morning I slipped the curlformers off, shook my head, and dashed out the door. (*I didn’t bother separating the curls*).
How was your recent wash day? Is anyone else fed up with their hair?
