Wash Day Update | Co-Wash + Another Updo


This was day was so short (outside of the pre-poo and including styling) compared to many others in my past. I started around 8:45 and was done by 11:30pm. I was a happy camper for managing two shorter than usual styling sessions on a single day. {see Z's current style}
  • Pre-poo: Suave Professionals Almond + Shea Butter Conditioner, 60 minutes under Hot Head Cap. Rinsed and t-shirt dried for 5 minutes.
  • Tea Rinse: One bag of green tea + 3 drops of peppermint essential oil in 2 cups of water, rinsed scalp 5 times. T-shirt dried for 10 minutes.
    • I typically only tea rinse on shampoo wash days, but I am going to start incorporating them every wash day to help soothe my scalp (if I remember).
  • Conditioner: Aubrey Organics GPB Conditioner. Detangled with fingers and Knot Genie.
  • Final Rinse: Aloe Vera Juice + Olive Oil, did a final rinse to get remove excess oil from hair.
  • Moisturizer: SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave-In + Olive Oil
  • Style: Added SheaMoisture Hold & Shine Mist + Homemade Flaxseed Gel to each section before twisting. 


The days have been really cold here in the South lately so I have been either wearing my hair in my beanie or wearing a headband with my bangs flat twisted and pinned. Today and tomorrow are going to bring some record lows so hopefully Z and I can get out for a little while today to get a few things done and check out some new books from the library to read. Poor child is so bummed about another school day cancellation (me too!). We will see what tomorrow brings especially if the ice does not melt or is not cleared from the roads for kids to travel safely to and from school on the bus/car. 

Hope everyone is keeping warm! How was your latest wash day experience?
