Wash day: Learning the basics

Get more details on this week in review so you understand why there is a wash day.
After taking down the rows, I finger detangled and used a wide tooth comb to detangle again.

To wash
1. Applied virgin coconut oil to the dirty hair to make detangling easy
2. Chelated and clarified with ORS aloe shampoo 2x. The first one, my hair was like," what do you think you've done hehehehe, I'm not budging a bit with that shampoo". The second time, it said," now, you've got me".
3. Applied roux porosity control and followed up with Dark and lovely aml legend mask.
4. Detangled the hair again- I had a lot of slip with the combination of those two products.
5. T- shirt dried for some minutes, and put the hair into 6 flexi rods to prevent tangling and matting whilst sleeping.
6. Next morning, I applied African pride sheabutter leave in and sealed with ors hairepair vital oils. This is where I observed something interesting. I was able to put my hair into 3 twists! Therefore, I don't have to get the hair cornrowed in order to wig it! I'm excited and nostalgic at the same time. It's been almost 2 years since I did that. I can now leave my hair alone for days, buns were fun but they easily look unkempt when you lie down often like I do.

Even when going to work, it will be easy to tuck the hair under wigs. I'll still get extensions but I want to enjoy this milestone for a while.
Thank you to all the ladies who leave me encouraging comments, Uzo, Patricia, Nana and everyone else. I'm grateful.

I'm also glad that I have great products in my stash which will see me through this transition. All the setbacks were worth it after all!

This is the first time I've detangled 3x during wash and I'm going to keep it up. The first lesson is to master detangling.

Don't forget to check out our March one goal project as it starts tomorrow. The goal is based on this video

PS: After trying different posting schedules, I've settled on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Expect posts on these days including seeing probably two if need be. Thank you so much for helping me achieve this.

Mat 9:28 ..."Do you believe that I am able to do this?" "Yes, Lord," they replied.
