Wash Day Chronicles: 64 Weeks Post

What time is it? WASH DAY TIME! lol I have been itching to wash my hair for a few days now. As much as I love when my hair is straight after about a week and half I'm ready to wash it. I try to hold out until the 2 week mark but that didn't happen this time. Since I do not moisturize my hair much when it is straight I start to get see a few long strands of hair come out when I comb my hair and also when my new growth starts to revert at the root it makes it a pain to comb through too. Those are the signs that it is time to wash. So let's get into this wash day.

{1} Cleansed my hair with Naturelle Grow's Mango and Berries Cleansing Conditioner. Since I didn't have much of any build-up on my hair I decided to use a cleansing conditioner instead of shampoo.
{2} I applied Hairitage Hydration's Pink Grapefruit Punch Conditioner and let it sit for about 3 minutes. I had soft and moisturized hair when it was rinsed out.
{3} I deep conditioned under my steamer with Hydratherma Naturals Amino Plus Protein Deep Conditioning Treatment. This protein deep conditioner made my hair feel stronger. I would classify this as a light to medium protein conditioner. It strengthened my hair but did not make it feel hard. My hair was easy to detangle and it soaked this conditioner right up. I love when conditioners sink into my hair. I am very heavy handed with conditioners. This one is so concentrated that a little bit definitely goes a long way.
{4}Applied my leave-ins, Silk Hydration by L. Jones Leave-In and Kurl Pop, and twisted my hair to air dry. Well actually I did use the concentration nozzle on my blow dryer to knock some of the moisture out of my hair so that I wasn't going to sleep with wet hair. Then I air dried overnight.

<==== This is a picture of my hair in twists. They aren't perfect but they are great for when I dry my hair. They help to stretch my hair. Once I am done twisting a section, I go back retwist this base a bit tighter to stretch the roots more then I use a bobby pin to hold it in place. This method has been real good to my lately. I must admit that I really like how juicy those three twists in the back look. lol

* My natural hair fully reverted
* Finished my last bottle of Hairitage Hydration Pink Grapefruit Punch Conditioner YAY!
* 1 more use out of the NaturelleGrow Cleansing Conditioner then it can be tossed YAY!
* I am digging the Hydratherma Naturals Amino Plus Protein Deep Conditioner
* The three juicy twists

How did your wash day go?

* I connect my wash day posts to the Wash Day Experience Link Up. I can't figure out the codes and all that jazz to link it to my posts. I'm not that tech savvy. So hop on over to Saving Our Strands and Just Grow Already Blogs to read other wash day posts*


  1. Your hair is holding up really well. I love the thickness.

  2. Juicy ain't the word chica! Those twists are PUMP! LOL. I'm really happy that your roots completely reverted. I think that I would be petrified if my roots didn't revert after straightening. How do you style your hair after they dry in the twists?

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience!

    PS: Here's the info on how to add the linkup badge to your post! XOXO

    1. Lol thank you girl! I would be a little sad if my didn't fully revert. I try to act tough about it but I know that would be sad. Lol I just put my hair in a bun after I take the twist down. That's my go to style.

  3. Wow, you are hair is so thick! How did you wear your hair the next day?

    1. Thank you! I wore my hair in a bun. That's how I wear my hair majority of the time. It's one of the things that has been getting me through this stretch/transition.

  4. Can you give me the link to Hairitage Hydration Pink Grapefruit Punch condish. I cannot find it on her site and I loved that stuff

    1. She changed the name of the conditioner. It's called Hibiscus Punch Conditioner. For some reason I can't post a link but just look for the new name.
