Wash Day Post

I just realised that I have not put up a detailed list of my hair regimen on this blog. The reason why I have probably not done this is because I do not want everyone to just go and try out these steps and find out that it does not work for them. Regardless of this however it is important for me to share to at least serve as a guide. I have recently changed my regimen and I must say that it suits me just fine, I changed some of my conditioners and shampoos. Now here goes the detailed wash day post:

I had to wait two weeks before washing my hair because of the relaxer burns I experienced as I needed to ensure that they had completely healed. I decided to be very diligent with this wash day to nurse my hair back to health after the excruciating relaxer experience I had.

I started off by pre pooing with Wura’s Secret Hair Growth Oil for about four hours. I covered my hair with two nylon bags and two shower caps.

I rinsed off the oil and shampooed my hair with Africa’s Best Kids Organics Shea Butter Shampoo (this product is available in Nigeria).  This was actually my first time using this product and over all I liked it. I will do a more detailed review after I have used it a few more times. It contains sulfates there are times when you need a good sulfate shampoo, I used this to remove any last traces of the relaxer, however I tend to only use sulfate shampoos with sodium laureth sulfate because they are milder and work best for me.



I also detangled in two sections (with shampoo in my hair), first with my fingers and then with a wide tooth comb whilst washing my hair, I do not recommend this and I do not do this every time but it seemed to work perfectly at this stage as I hardly have any new growth. I normally shampoo my hair in two sections to minimise tangles after that was done I towel dried still in those two sections.

I then applied a coin sized amount of Wura’s Secret Hair Growth Oil to each section of my hair (this is the oil rinsing step of my regimen).

Then I applied my conditioner over the oil, I usually apply my conditioner in sections. I take a section of hair apply some conditioner rub it in gently and twist it till I have about six to eight twists.

My conditioner mix included one and a half tablespoons of  Redken Extreme Builder Plus, three table spoons Organic Root Stimulator Replenishing Conditioner (review here), one and a half tablespoons of Wura’s Secret Whipped Penetrating Moisturising Conditioner, a squirt of Roux Porosity Control Conditioner (this is the newest addition to my hair regimen and I use it every single wash day), one tablespoon hair trigger growth elixir, one tablespoon wura’s secret hair growth oil, one tablespoon coconut oil, half a tablespoon of castor oil, 4 drops of rosemary and lavender oil.

Here are some of the conditioners I used

I covered my hair for about seven hours with two nylon bags and two shower caps, I usually put a scarf on top of all this but my head seemed to hurt for some reason.

I then rinsed with cold water still in two sections, I usually just lean over the bath the entire wash day process instead of getting in.

I towel dried in those two sections and then immediately started sectioning off my hair and I applied some Wura’s Secret Hair Growth Oil to my scalp and then coconut oil on my hair, then Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie and then I combed. I noticed that the smoothie made my hair slightly hard and not as easy to comb as when I use my Wura’s Secret Hair Moisturiser but I wanted to try this product out on wet hair and then I sealed each section with Wura’s Secret Hair Growth Oil and twisted it until I had about twelve twists in total.

This was my hair on Monday (after I had unraveled the twists), I wanted a tight curly look that was restrained

My Friday look I was going for a more messy look (I still have a lot of texture left from the twists), my hair is not as long as it used to be but it is getting there

Kindly share how your wash day went and if you have tried any of the products I have used. Have a splendid weekend loves.

  3. Would you mind posting a review of the Roux porosity control (what your porosity is, how you use it, and what it does for you)?

  4. i've never tried any of the products. Funny thing is i always have the intention of sharing my wash days, but never got around to it. The main reason is usually because each wash day is different. But I guess it wouldn't hurt to share, and it's up to the readers to pick and choose which one works for them. Also, a lot of people don't even know how to wash their hair properly and what to use. So I can see them benefiting from our tips
