  • So sorry my wash day post is so late! It’s been a busy, tiring week. By Sunday, my curl form set from last week was big and fluffy; I loved it. But after 2 weeks of curl former sets, I was ready to go back to my normal routine, “old…

  • [1] I started off by applying Aussie Moist Conditioner to my hair to loosen the curls from last week’s curlformer set. I also applied Hair Trigger to my scalp… remember when I used to use it every wash day?! I’m trying to revisit old goodies, so I took a trip…

I applied the conditioner to dry hair (in sections) and sat under my steamer for 15 minutes.   [2] Shampooed with Bobeam Apple Cider Vinegar & Bentonite Clay Bar. First impressions: After experiencing how stripped Bobeam Goat’s…

[2] Co-wash: I co-washed with Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk…
