The Honey Wash Day

This wash Day was a pre honey challenge experiment where I decided to do a honey wash.
I didn't want to use a shampoo on my hair but I remembered I hasn't done a clay treatment in more than a month too so I had to clean the scalp.
1) Clarified with ORS Aloe shampoo once.
2) Followed up with Sheamoisture yucca and baobab shampoo to strengthen the hair. This product has vegetable protein so the hair feels a bit hard after use.
3) Applied acv and honey diluted with water to rinse the hair. This is the honey wash part
4) Applied tresemme Naturals moisturizing Conditioner as I didn't want to spend 30 minutes deep conditioning.
5) Added a tablespoon full of pure honey to the hair. It was a slip galore! That combination left me in a different serene world Lol.
6) After rinsing out the conditioner, I applied Grape seed oil and covered with a satin cap for the night.
Next morning, I applied African Pride Sheabutter leave in conditioner and sealed with a bit of we naturals hemp butter. I didn't spritz the hair prior to the application of the leave in because the hair was still a bit damp.
I wore the hair in its shrunken glory to work.

As part of getting this hair hydrated, I'm back to water washing. However, this time, I won't be doing it daily to avoid catching cough and flu again. I'll water rinse if I feel the hair is dry. I'll also Prepoo with coconut oil to reduce hygral fatigue. After rinsing, I'll add a bit of Grape seed oil to seal in the moisture before bed time. One of the changes I've made to my own daily routine is to take early evening showers thus the hair will be just damp rather than wet for bedtime which is a great opportunity to do green house effect, especially, on weekends.
Thus natural approach has really helped with curbing breakage so I don't want to discontinue it.
