Wash Day!

So I finally for around to washing my hair. Let me just start by saying I will definitely keep my wash day on the weekend. I went to the gym first (great workout by the way) and I was very tempted to use the sauna. What stopped me was the 40 degree weather outside and going home with a wet head would have definitely lead to a cold.

I pre-pooed for about 40 mins with honey. Can you say amazing!!!! It made my new growth super soft and my hair was easy to detangle. I washed with Elasta QP Soy OYL Neutralizing shampoo because I grabbed the wrong shampoo. I WILL be returning this. shhhhhhh don't tell anyone. I was not impressed with this shampoo at all. I'm not even sure if I want to use their products anymore. I just want to find a great moisturizing sulfate-free shampoo. I don't understand why I'm having such a difficult time. But anyway after I washed my hair I conditioned for only about 10 mins in the shower. It was late and my baby was having a fit about being put to bed without mommy. Next I added my leave in conditioner and started my detangling process. I finally got to use my tangle tamer and again I say WOW!!! I don't know if the honey pre-poo helped, but I was able to successfully attack my new growth! Detangling only took about 15 mins and that's great considering I'm going into my 13th weeks post relaxer. Stretching is not going to be that challenging for me. Honey pre-poo and the Tangle Tamer will be my secret weapons!!

Well I plan to co-wash on Thursday since I plan on hitting the gym hard this week. I'm trying to loose 5 pounds by the end of the month. I will be able to fit my pre-pregnancy skinny jeans by Jan. I'm already back down to my pre-pregnancy weight and I'm so happy! I finally feel thin again!!

Lastly, I'm considering joining my first challenge.


  1. Thanks for joining the challenge, you are so right about keeping motivated! Congrats on your weight loss, I am working on mine as well but I have no baby to blame just greedy! lol.

    Have you tried Giovanni Smooth as Silk shampoo? Its my staple sulfate-free shampoo and I buy it in the HUGE containers from TJMaxx for $12.99. Love how it cleans my hair and you can't beat that price!

  2. Thanks! I didn't think I would ever loose the excess weight. Now to shed off these last five pounds. I have not tried that shampoo but I will definitely be looking into it. That is on my list of things to complete by my next wash day. Thanks a lot. I really have been having trouble finding a sulfate free shampoo.
