Wash Day/2 Year Hairniversary!

Hey there,

It's been quite a while since my last wash day post, so it's about time I got back to it! I relaxed my hair on July 4th , and by last night my scalp was crying out for a wash. Here's what went down:

  1. Pre-shampoo treat with sweet almond oil on the scalp and aussie 3 min miracle with sweet almond oil on the length. I left this in for about 1.5 hours without heat (the house was hot anyway, lol).
  2. Shampooed twice with diluted L'oreal Everpure Moisturizing Shampoo.
  3. Conditioned with Herbal Essences Honey I'm Strong rinse off treatment for the remainder of my shower and then finger detangled while rinsing. This is actually my first Herbal Essences purchase and my first time trying it-- the slip was insane, i actually said damn! Lol. It had an odd smell, but it cut through the tangles. I'll have to see if this is still as efficacious later in my stretch before I can recommend it :).
  4.  T-shirt dried for about 30 minutes (had to finish up some TV :).
  5. Applied my leave-ins, Silicon Mix Bambu and argan oil, then proceeded to detangle using my seamless combs. 
  6. I then let my hair air dry loose and put it into 5 big pin curls before bed.
These are my results:

look! i got new glasses! lol :o)


It also occurred to me that I completely missed my 2 year hairniversary! On July 1st, 2013 it has been officially 2 years since I began this journey towards healthier, happier, longer hair. I'm pleased by how far I've come and certainly didn't expect the results that I have achieved. My hair is a constant reminder of what hard work, research and a strong routine can do for every aspect of my life. This is where my hair is currently:



I will be spending some time this year clipping off uneven ends, but I'm where I was hoping to be by now--grazing bra-strap length. I look forward to full bra-strap by the end of the year, and hopefully midback by my 3 year anniversary.

My start:
