Wash day was a success :) wasn't as tiring as it usually is. In all it took about 4 hours,here's a rundown of what went down from start to finish:
#2-Put hair in 6 braids,leaving space at the root
#3-Let sit for maybe 30mins under conditioning cap
#4-Washed scalp & braids w/ my homemade black soap shampoo,rinsed out w/ warm water
#5-Applied diluted conditioner to braids & roots (diluted w/ half really warm water & half conditioner) let sit under cap for about 20mins
#6-Rinsed out with COLD water
#7-Dried hair w/ a "turby twist" (microfiber towel or a tshirt works well too)
#9-One last mist of aloe vera juice before putting on a scarf for bed. Aloe vera juice leans more on the acidic side,closing your cuticles & preventing frizz or "fuzzies".
After these braids are removed, I most likely will bun it or something. I might also retire my small twists for a second untill I'm ready to commit to 4 weeks :-p
This sounds like a ton of stuff right? Nah,it goes by fast since I've been doing this for so long. And there's a reason for every thing done.
