Wash Day

Today's wash day went really well. I had plans to roller-set my hair, but they fell through due to lack of time. Here are the steps to my wash day.

  1. Pre-pooed with a garlic and NTM conditioner mix. I finished the last of the NTM Daily Conditioner. I probably will not repurchase since I was using it as a conditioner rinse and may have found a substitute. I didn't mention this is my previous post, but my hair has been shedding excessively. This is my reasoning behind this particular mix.
  2. Shampooed with CON Argon Oil Moisture and Shine Sulfate Free Shampoo.
  3. DCed with ORS Hair Masque. Review coming later this week.
  4. Rinsed out DC and applied Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Daily Treatment and rinsed after about 5 mins. I loved how smooth my hair felt. I think this will replace the NTM conditioner! So far I LOVE this stuff, but I will have a more through review after a few more uses.
  5. T-shirt dried for about 5 mins then added Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In and sealed it with GVP's Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum. The combination of this serum with the PM SS Daily Treatment was a heaven send for my hair. It left my hair so soft, smooth, and shiny!! A+ combination! I just hope it works like this every time I use it.
  6. I airdried my hair in a bun d/t a lack of time. I'm thinking about adding some bantu knots or flexi-rods to it tonight. I need to do something with my hair because on my days off I have not even touched my hair. It has been sitting all over my hair and my Honey told me it was wayyyy past time to do something to my hair. I definitely agreed with him.
Hair 100% dry at this point.

So with that being said I'm gonna try to stay clear of bunning my hair for a about a week or two. I may even flat iron it for Christmas. Lately I've been thinking of going to a salon to have someone else do my hair for a change. I'm not sure if I will be able to go through with it, but it has definitively been on my mind.

  1. You know, I've never tried the PM SS Daily Treatment after deep conditioning, I think I'll try that for my next wash. Thanks for sharing that with us!

  2. What form was the garlic? Fresh cloves or capsules?

    1. I used garlic powder seasoning from the kitchen.

  3. I soooooo can't wait for my hair to become long enough so I can air dry it in a bun! If I want to look neat, I HAVE to roller set, no matter how tired, busy or lazy I am. Luckily I can roller set my entire head in under 30 minutes, but still...Also, I wish we had Paul Mitchell products readily available in my town. Your hair looks so freaking soft on the picture even!

  4. Your hair looks really thick. I'm looking forward to the review on the ORS hair mask:-)

  5. You know, I think I may have to check out some of these products you mentioned.

  6. I never used garlic (or products containing garlic) on my hair! I think I'm going to give it a try! Thanks for sharing!
