1. In a nozzle bottle I put half water and half of my Shea Moisture Retention Shampoo mixed. It was definitely a refreshing feeling. I had been itching my scalp and all that came to stop during the shampoo step. Washing out the shampoo was a challenge. I have a net over my braids so it was really difficult to making sure that the shampoo was thoroughly washed out.
2. I followed that with a mixture of Aussie 3 Minute Miracle with water as well. I applied that to my braids and had let that sit. I left that on for awhile as I focused next on the weave. It was on my hair for about 10 minutes.
3. I shampooed my weave with the Shea Moisture Shampoo as well. A lot was not necessary but I made sure to thoroughly wash it. I then washed that out and followed up with the Aussie deep conditioner as well, making sure to focus on the ends. It instantly soften the hair and made the ends feel a lot better.
4. I rinsed out the braids until I saw no more bubbles. Also rinsed out the deep conditioner off the weave. I used another conditioner on the weave, just because. I used Herbal Essence conditioner and I then detangled the weave. I had a good amount of hair that was coming out. I know it was the weave because of the way the roots look. It was kind of scary but it was not my hair so it's okay. But for the weave, uh not acceptable. I also detangled from the ends like I would do with my natural hair.
5. Once done with the washing process I applied chi silk infusion on the extensions, just a little bit. I then applied Neutrogena Leave In on my leave out. I went under a hooded dryer to make sure my braids would be dried and followed up with a hand held blower. The weave dried really quick and return to its natural pattern.
6. I tried blending my hair with the weave but it was a fail. So I ended up flat ironing the hair the next day. Of course I used heat protectant on both the weave and my own hair.
As for my ends they feel so much more better. They don't feel dry at all and it's been 4 days since the wash day. I'm not sure how to keep them from getting dried. But I do wrap the hair every night doing a braid and putting a silk scarf over it. The pattern is a lot more prettier in person.
