Wash Day Chronicles and a Little Intro to the SSS Plates

Sunday was suppose to be my wash day but that didn't happen. I did manage to wash it on Monday. Luckily, my SSS Plates arrived by then and I was able to test them out. So here is how my wash day went.

{1} I parted my hair into four sections. Then I proceeded to spray my hair with water using my spray bottle. My cowash of choice was the Cream of Nature Pure~Licious Cowash. I detangled with the cowash in my hair and let it sit for a little while before rinsing. When I rinsed it out my hair felt pretty clean.

{2} I bought the rinse out conditioner for the Shea Moisture 10 in 1 Renewal line and so far I am pleased. I loved how it felt when I was applying it to my hair. My hair felt so silky.

{3} Let's move on to deep conditioning. I used my new fav, the hair masque for the 10 in 1 line and let it sit on my hair for about 2 and a half hours with 2 plastic caps.

{4} When I was done deep conditioning, I applied the JBCO Leave-In and some Argan Oil to seal then proceeded to twist my hair. I woke up to moisturized hair.

I think I can say that the 10 in 1 Renewal products really give my color a bit of a boost.

Since my SSS plates arrived just in time for wash day, I went ahead and give them a try. I used mostly the purple plates at the roots and two of the long black plates. I used the black plates on twists that I felt would unravel. Now with my washing my hair later in the evening I had to sleep in the plates. Which you can guess is not comfortable. Those black plates were removed in the middle of the night. Just judging off this one use, this product can be worked into my regimen. Mainly, the purple plates. I want my roots stretched more. Now that I am just shy of 2 years post and have majority natural hair, the twists give me the stretch that I want length wise but when those roots dry it's a different story. The purple plates seem to give me what I am looking for with my roots.

Look out for a separate intro post about the plates soon.


  1. so glad to come across your post with the SSS plates as I have been seeing them around the "net" good to hear they stretch your roots I'll be sticking around to see how the plates do when you get a chance to use them again.

    I love SM products too.

    great wash day post.

    1. Thanks for checking out my post. I will be using the black plates when I do a daytime wash day.

  2. I've seen the SAS plates all over instagram. You seem like you really like them. But you're persuading me to get the Creme of Nature line!! Lol

    1. I really like the cowash. You should try it out.
