(1) Pre-pooed for 1 hour under my conditioning cap by applying Creme of Nature Argan Oil Intensive Conditioning Treatment to the length of my hair and Hair Trigger on my scalp. (2) Shampooed with Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Shampoo. (3) Did a black tea rinse, let it sit on my hair and scalp for a few minutes, then rinsed. (4) Applied Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Daily Treatment to my hair for a few minutes. (5) Used a towel to absorb the excess water from my hair and deep conditioned under my steamer with Vanilla Silk Cream Moisture Dream for 30 minutes. (6) Covered my hair for about 20 minutes with a t-shirt to soak up excess water.
(7) Applied leave ins: Darcy’s Botanicals Coconut Lemongrass Transitioning Creme and Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum and then I let my hair air dry until about 90% dry.
(8) Blow dried my roots and innermost layers of my hair because they take the longest to dry (using cool air setting) using the tension method (i.e. I used my hand to hold the hair taut. It’s the same method shown here).
Now, at this point I fully intended to flat iron and then pin curl my hair. I’m going home to see my family for Thanksgiving so I figured I should do SOMETHING with my hair. Well, by the time my hair was dry it was nearly midnight and my arms burned from holding up the dryer lol. Which makes me rethink (just a little) my decision to grow to hip length… that’s another 4 inches… my hair already feels like it’s too much now… but I said I’d do it, so I will! Anywhoooo… by the time my hair was dry, flat ironing right then and there went right out the window.
Two days later, it’s still out the window because I remembered that I plan to flat iron my hair after my touch up in December, that’s only about 6 weeks away. No way am I using direct heat now and then again at the end of December. Uh uh. I’ll work my hair into some type of up-do for Turkey Day.
Not many pics this wash day. I only have the two pictures above that I snapped with my phone that I posted on FB Sunday night, my apologies!
✌ ♥ & all things hair 🙂
