wash day (finally) | back with another easy updo

Oooo weee! I could not have been happier to run some shampoo through my hair and on my scalp. In the relaxed/transitioning verbage: I was 17 days post last wash day...lol. I felt nothing but utter bliss when I was finally able to massage my hair under warm water and go through my typical full wash day process this past Monday. Normally, I would dread the full wash days, but after such a looong hiatus, I was actually ready to put in the time with gladness.

For a quick run down, this is what I did:
  • Pre-poo: Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle + 1 hour + Hot Head Heat Cap
  • Shampoo: SM Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo diluted in applicator bottle
  • Protein Treatment: Aphogee Two Minute Reconstructor + 20 minutes (I don't know what I was thinking but I thought it was a good idea to fix something to eat before rinsing this out. My hair definitely felt fortified after such a long time.)
  • Deep Condition: SM African Black Soap Purification Masque + 1 hour (with Hot Head Heat Cap) + Overnight (to help with the hard fortified feeling)
  • Moisturize: LOC- Homemade Spritz + Coconut Oil + SM Curl Enhancing Smoothie
  • Style: Freestyle Pinwheel Updo {somewhat similar to this pin up hair style}

I made a pictorial for this style which I will post this is posted in the next post to give you a visual on the steps I took to create this style. What I love best about freestyling a twist updo is that it does not have to be time consuming. I used to believe that small twists create the best updos, but now I have a greater respect for those medium to larger sized twists.
