Wash Day Chronicle: 13 months Post (9/27/14)

This wash day I decided to do something out of the norm of what I would normally do. Keep reading to find out. By the way, it's nothing to drastic. Let's get into it.

{1} I shampooed with Cream and Coco's Cocobutter Milkshake Soap. It gives a low lather but cleanses well without stripping the hair.
{2} Conditioned with TreSemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture conditioner. I haven't used this conditioner in a long time. I am still a fan.
{3} Here is where the "out of the norm" thing comes in. As you already know, I am still working on reducing my stash. So I took a page out of Sistawithrealhair's book. I used two different conditioners on my hair to deep condition with. I have a few new conditioners that I have been anxious to use. Why not use a couple at the same damn time. lol On the right half my hair I used the Hydratherma Naturals Moisture Boosting Deep Conditioning Treatment. On the left half, I used the SM Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Hair Masque. Both conditioners are really good but I'm liking that SM a bit more. I'll be doing full reviews on both. I deep conditioned using my BonBon Cheveux Hard Candy Conditioning Bonnet for a few hours. I didn't use my steamer because I was using Jeni's tip on how to get rid of the mineral build-up in your steamer. So it was out of commission. Next week I will be doing the same thing but using my steamer to see what the outcome will be like.


{4} After rinsing, I applied Hairitage Hydration's Soft Coconut Marshmallow Leave-in to detangle and then applied the Organix Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum to seal.
{5} Two Strand Twisted my hair and let it air dry overnight and I bunned my hair the next day.

That's it! Pretty easy and straight forward wash day. How was your's?


  1. You make transitioning hair seem so effortless! What are your secrets?!?

  2. Aww thank you! To be honest I am surprised at how well this transition has been going. I keep it as simple as possible. I have learned the hard way to not deviate from my routine. I deep condition my hair weekly. I don't manipulate my hair much. Keeping my hair as stretched as possible has been the number one thing that has made this stretch bareable.

  3. I totally agree about keeping the hair stretched. For me, that is definitely #1. Keeping it moisturized is a close second. I have read so many good reviews on the SM Manuka Hair Mask. Did your natural and relaxed hair like it or one more than the other?

    1. Both of my textures liked it equally. I hope using the steamer makes it even better.
