I have been trying to wash my hair since Friday! *shame face* My daughter obliged me Friday evening by taking down my twists for me (she loves playing in my hair and I rarely let her). I had shiny, well moisture loose hair. She even replied that I could definitely wear my hair like that out of the house. I pulled it into a lose pony towards the back of my head and it stayed like this until Sunday.
So Sunday afternoon comes around and I decided to force myself to wash my hair. My scalp had gotten itchy over the past few days and I noticed dandruff build up galore!
In goes my four sections. I took my first quadrant (front right) and squirted some Shea Moisture JBCO shampoo directly in the part on the scalp. I parted again and applied. I did this until I reached my edge and applied along my hair line.
Holding the ends taunt, I commenced to use the pads of my fingers to massage the shampoo into my scalp. Finishing, I twisted it up, and rolled it into a knot and moved on.
By the time I was half through the second quadrant in the front, I was tired. Lol. But I couldn't turn back now so I walked into my bedroom, plopped down on the edge of my bed, and holding this section taunt, massaged my scalp to clean it.
I completed this process but couldn't wash just yet. I did mention in one post that I had three children, fourth on the way, and a hubby didn't I? Duty called and I went to be mommy.
When all was done, I hoped in the shower to rinse. I washed my ends with Carols Daughter Black Vanilla Moisture & Shine. Rinsed that out and used the As I Am So Much Moisture Hydrating Lotion as my conditioner. Have I mentioned this pump needs to be exchanged with a spray nozzle!!?!? And, this 8oz bottle is nearly gone.
But any who, I pinned my hair up and showered. When I was done, I took the Shea Moisture JBCO Leave In and applied that all over. As I sectioned parts to twist, I applied my EVAO with no peppermint oil and twisted. Again, I ended up with eight twists.
I forgot to mention that since the first post, I've put the ends of my twists in Bantu knots to protect the ends.
