Wash Wednesday!

I took out my cornrowed updo at four weeks; the cornrows were starting to look “questionable” the kinky twists were still good but I missed my hair so out they went. Take down was a breeze I detangled as I took out the braids finger combed and then completed detangling with a wide toothed comb. For this wash day I went back to an old favourite combo DIY deep conditioner that my aunties introduced me to as a child; good old avocado and egg. 

I wet my hair with water in a spray bottle, applied the avocado-egg mixture to my hair, covered it with cling film/wrap let it sit for about 45 minutes and then proceeded to rinse out. I shampooed twice using African Black Soap and conditioned with another favourite Enliven coconut and vanilla conditioner. There wasn’t much to detangle in shower but I still lightly detangled anyway with the help of the conditioner. Detangling done I rinsed out the conditioner and then t-shirt dried until damp, applied my leave in conditioner let my hair air dry some and then moisturized with Crème of Nature Argan Oil Moisturizer (I added Aloe Vera Juice to the moisturizer to dilute it a little). Moisturising done I sealed with coconut oil and that ladies was my post long term protective style wash day.
Wet hair don't care!
