Z Wash Day Updates | Her First Protein Treatment

Last night, Z's wash session went like this:
  1. Took down Corkscrew Ghana Plaits
  2. Divided hair into four sections. Pre-pooed with Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle conditioner for 15 minutes (covered hair)
  3. Rinsed and shampooed with Pantene Pro-V Expert shampoo (contains sulfates to remove build up and was what I had)
  4. Rinsed and applied Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor for 5 minutes (covered hair). I definitely did not feel like one application (from the 2 application packet) was enough for her entire head. By time I got to the fourth section, I barely had any left. Next time I use this protein treatment, I will just use the entire 2 application packet on her hair (or just buy the bottle)
  5. Rinsed, t-shirt dried for 10 minutes, and applied Shea Moisture African Black Soap Purification Masque + Aubrey Organic GPB Balancing Protein Conditioner for 25 minutes (covered hair). I bought the balancing protein conditioner at Whole Foods after reading lots of raving reviews online. The texture is very thick for a conditioner...almost like a paste. I added the protein conditioner (+ Shea Moisture conditioner) primarily on the section that I felt was lacking during the protein treatment
  6. Rinsed with water then conditioned hair with Giovanni Smooth as Silk conditioner to detangle hair (her hair was extra tangled...not sure if it was because of the protein treatment or because her hair was just tangled from the ghana plaits and then the shampooing process. Nevertheless, I divided her hair into 8 sections to really detangle her hair with my fingers (first), wide tooth comb, and at last the denman brush. I will say once her hair was detangled, her hair felt very smooth and stronger. Even when I twisted each section after detangling, the ends of her hair clumped nicely together in a curl.)
  7. Rinsed and did a ACV rinse to help reduce dry itchy scalp (in preparation for yarn wraps). Did not rinse out
  8. T-shirt dried for 10 minutes
  9. Without removing the twists, I LOCed her hair with water, Shea Moisture Curl and Style Milk + Olive Oil, and Shea Butter
  10. Covered hair with bonnet
  11. Put her to bed :-)
