Wash Day ; Preparing For Sew-In

My install will be happening this week and I wanted to give my hair a really good wash/deep condition. It was pretty simple yet very effective. I used very minimal products and did a light protein treatment that I have not done in while. I washed my hair at home and went to a salon to get my ends trim and a roller set/blow out done. 

1. I prepoo my hair with a mixture of oils EVOO, Grape seed Oil, Jojoba Oil & Avocado Oil. As the oil mixture was heating up in a cup of hot water I parted my hair into four sections. Once I felt the oil was warm enough I applied it to my scalp first sectioning the four parts into two more parts. Then applied it to the lengths of my hair. I then used my Hair Therapy Cap and left it on for 30 minutes. 

2. Rinsed the oil out and then shampooed using the Miss Jessie Sudsy Slip Shampoo in my four sections. Although it was a small size it was enough for my entire head. I mainly focused on my roots and rub the suds down the length of my hair. This was my first time using this and it was pretty nice. The scent was okay but the consistency was really weird. It was like a loose but has this sticky look, its hard to describe. I did have suds and it was pretty detangling on my roots. Also did not feel stripping at all. 

3. I then applied the ORS Replenishing Pak and upon application my hair felt really soft! I haven't used this product in awhile simply because I dislike the smell of it. I also put my oil mixture from earlier lightly on top of the d/c. Instead of leaving this in for 45 minutes without heat I decided to sit under my hooded dryer for 20 minutes. But boy was this great. It was enough slip to detangle with and hair felt really moisturized. I wouldn't even need to follow up with a moisturizing d/c but I did anyway. I'm also going to add this to my regimen.

4. I deep condition my hair with It's a 10 Hair Mask (Review coming soon) I love this deep conditioner it provides great slip and smells amazing! I left that on with heat for 30 minutes and went to a salon for my stylist to trim, roller set and blow out my hair. I hope to get a picture up real soon. 


  1. I love It's a 10! but I haven't used the deep conditioner yet. I can't wait to read your review to see if its worth trying.

Am I Protein Sensitive ?

I had recently purchased Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor and The Keratin & Green Tea leave in. I felt that my hair was in desperate need of some protein being that it was breaking a lot and because I thought my hair was going through moisture overload. Every time I washed it, my hair will feel way to mushy and soft. So today I decided to try the products and my results weren’t so good. This is what I did :
Shampoo with my Neutrogena Triple Moisture & then condition with the Aphogee conditioner. On the bottle it says to either leave it on for 2 or 5 minutes. I don’t know how long I left it in being that I was in the shower, but I do know that I didn’t leave in on for long because I didn’t know the time and I was to nervous having this product in my hair. I want to say it had to be at least 4 minutes that it was in my hair. Once I rinsed it out my hair felt AMAZING! My hair felt so strong and thick. I was just blown away at how good my hair felt. Usually my hair feels like mush an…

So I Made Waist Length

I made my long term goal! I'm finally waist length. I have been on a hair journey for a very long time and through so many trial and errors I found what helped me. My growth has definitely come from protective styling. I'm either doing a sew in and if not that my hair was always in a bun. Also having a simple hair routine is key! Not only that but keeping up with my ends. I plan to get my ends lightly trimmed but the only person I trust is so far from me but very soon I will get one. I might try to do a new hair goal of hip length but honestly not sure having long hair can kind of be annoying, but I'm not complaining I love my current length.
