Recent Lengths: Wash Day
I not often do Wash Day posts, the truth is I feel it’s been a 12 months since I last did one. For the last two weeks my hair has not been responding to my favorite conditioners at all which made me really think about what I’ve been utilizing on my hair.
I have been alternating between my JOICO regulars, Moisture Restoration and Easy Cure, and Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Excessive too. These all normally work wonders but my hair has had that lack lustre feeling recently. No buttery softness, limited bounce, serious tangling and my hair simply felt so dry.
What was going on In reality it took me some time to realise as I’ve modified my conditioner each wash over the past couple of weeks. I additionally tried utilizing totally different shampoos to remove any construct-up as often this may cause dryness, however nonetheless no change. It wasn’t until ultimately I considered something I hadn’t been doing recently with the warmer weather – pre shampoo treatments.
I applied Coconut oil throughout my hair final week, using lots greater than typical as it helped me to detangle my new progress. I then applied a plastic cap and sat for 10 minutes. As quickly as I started to shampoo my hair had changed instantly. The straw-like feeling had gone and the smoothness got here again. Lastly. I tried it again yesterday to ensure it wasn’t only a fluke and after washing my hair felt so tender.
I often can get away without the pre shampoo remedies within the summer time, however I feel I am going to continue to keep doing them from now on to keep my hair comfortable. Jen’s recent Wash Day put up made me want to finish off my ordinary bun with some equipment, so after airdying I tied a scarf down calmly to maintain my edges smooth.
