Wash Day

Hey everybody out there. Thanks so much for checking out my blog. I wanted to stop by and talk about my recent washday and also what I want to try next time.

1. I deep conditioned with a mix of GVP Humectress conditioner, Roux Porosity Control conditioner, Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor, JBCO, and PPO under two clear shower caps for about 3 hours on dry hair.
2. I washed my hair with Creme of Nature Argan Oil Shampoo and then used Tresseme Moisture Rich Conditioner and rinsed out.
3. I towel dried my hair until it was about 60% dry and then applied Neutrogena Triple Moisture Leave In and sealed with EVCO and bunned my hair.
4. The next morning I moisturized with Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship Leave In (old formula in red bottle) and sealed with EVCO and oiled my scalp with a mix of JBCO, EVOO, and EVCO.

So far my hair feels just okay. I've never deep conditioned on dry hair and I think that's why my hair feels just so-so. Also I usually deep condition with heat under my hooded dryer but my dryer is in storage while I'm house hunting, so I have to make due with what I can do. I am also still experiencing alot of shedding which I don't particularly care for. I think that I may try taking garlic supplements and spraying my scalp with AVJ and glycerin and see what that does for the shedding as I have read that it does wonders for new growth during stretching. I also relaxed earlier than I wanted (at 8 weeks) because my hair was so underprocessed that my hair looked like it was 14 weeks post as opposed to just 8. My hair still feels a bit texlaxed which is something I may have to just deal with and find ways to have my relaxed and texlaxed hair live in harmony until I can get my next relaxer and see if there is anyway to correct the under processed parts.

That's all for now but be sure to check back for more on my journey to APL hair and beyond!!
