Mid-week wash and go on relaxed hair

I needed to refresh my hair in the middle of the week and I decided to do a quick co-wash with the Herbal Essences Naked cleansing conditioner. I applied it to dry hair, let it sit for about 5 minutes, detangled underneath the shower but it just didn’t have as much slip as I thought it had. I would grade it a 5/10 for slip. My hair just felt heavy and coated: I just couldn’t bear the way it felt. So, I reached for the Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo and did a quick lather and detangled with it still in my hair. It was like I did a factory reset on my hair: it was feeling great! 

I stepped out of the shower and I used a soft cloth to squeeze out the extra water from my hair. Next, I sprayed the Shu Uemura Art of Hair Wonder Worker Air Dry/Blow Dry Perfector in sections. I rubbed some Lotta Body Wrap Me Foaming Mousse on the top of my hair and edges, tied a on the top of my hair and then let it air dry.

A few observations:

My coils were less defined than my previous wash day: I’m thinking that the Camille Rose Naturals Curlaide Moisture Butter I used last time made my hair clump together more than this Shu Uemura leave-in. 

Secondly, I noticed that my roots are straighter than my ends. After a few relaxer touch-ups, I’m not quite sure I’ll be left with any more coils.

On Saturday, I am planning to do a proper pre-shampoo deep conditioning treatment.  I hope to keep you posted.

    Such a cute look. Love the colour of your lipstick too… Sadly my roots are straighter than my ends but I have decided to go back from Lye to no lye relaxers to allow me to keep more texture so will see how that works out.
