Wash Day

1. Prepoo scalp & leave out with a combination of jojoba oil & grapeseed oil. 

2. Shampooed the leave out with Shea Moisture Retention Shampoo. I am starting to run low on this & being it isn't a ultimate favorite I am going to look into other sulfate free shampoo's. Any suggestion?

3. I rinsed out the oil and shampoo. I did not apply any shampoo to my scalp instead in a applicator bottle I used the As I Am Coconut Cowash and massaged that in. 

4. Left the Cowash in for a few minutes then rinsed it out to put in my deep conditioner. 

5. I used the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle with the same oils and applied that to my scalp. Also on my leave out. 

6. Now I started to work on the extensions. I Cowash with Herbal Essence conditioner because I love the scent. Rinsing that out I followed up with the deep conditioner which was also the Aussie 3 Minute. 

7. I wrapped my hair and placed a plastic wrap over it. Used my Hair Therapy Wrap to do a heated deep conditioning session. I decided to deep condition for an hour because I felt my hair needed the extra moisture.

8. I thoroughly rinsed out all the product on my scalp and extension. I towel dried my leave out sections and applied my leave in [Chi Silk Infusion & It's a 10 Miracle Leave In]. I applied Chi Silk Infusion on to the weave. I decided to roller set my leave out so that it can be smoother. I then sat under a hooded dryer for 45 minutes until everything was dried. 

9. I then flat iron so blending can be easier. 


  1. Great wash day, how do you like aussie 3 minute miracle as a deep conditioner? I loved it as an instant con, and looking to try it as a deep con.

    1. Thanks! The Aussie 3 Minute Miracle works very well with my hair. If I am able to detangle and feel that my hair is moisturized then its a winner to me. When I deep condition it's usually for 30 minutes with heat. I also use it as an rinse out conditioner and its just as good.

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.
