The Wash Day Experience!

In honoring my recommitment to growing my hair, or shall I say having healthy hair, I decided to participate in JGA and SOS Wash Day Experience.

When I say recomitting, well I never stopped caring for it, but my once, very detailed, very strict regimen, kinda resolved to a bare minimum do what I feel like doing, when I feel like doing it thing. Which is cool because I am a working wife and mother of 4, yes I stay pretty busy and I don't have 5 or 6 hours to dedicate to my hair....barely have an hour, but I digress.

With all of that being said, I decided to take the time to focus on total hair health, moreso than length and just maintaincing.

So this past wash day was nothing special. I had had a sew in in, for the past month. Took that down, after one month because my scalp was itching like CRAZY!

So anywho....Here goes my wash day experience:


1. Took braids down and finger detailed.
2. Cowashed
  • with Organix Coconut Conditioner
  • parting hair in 6 sections bc my new growth is super thick.
  • Detangle with conditioner under running water.
3. Deep Conditioner mix:
  • Dollop of Organix Coconut Conditioner
  • 1 egg
  • 1 jar of  baby food  : Banana
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 TBS of Honey
  • Let sit under plastic cap, with towel wrapped over head for 1 hour.
4. ACV Rinse
  • 1 part ACV, 2 part water.
  • Pour onto scalp, letting it run down the length of my hair.
  • Let sit for 2 minutes.
  • Rinse
5. Leave Ins
  • Part hair in four sections.
  • Lightly detangle
  • Light Trim
  • Apply Cantu Shea Butter Leave in conditioner onto each section, from tip to root.
6. Seal
  • Castor Oil
7. Oil scalp
  • Liquid Gold Sulfate Growth oil
8. Style:
  •  Braidout
  • Ehhh about 15 plaits/braids
  • set on flexi rods
  • let sit overnight
  • unraveled using Paul Mitchell Super Skinny hair serum.
The plaits were still wet, so despite the serum, it still grew as I went outside and it began to air dry." title="The Wash Day Experience">

  1. Hi doll, I am your new supporter. I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but with the code that you got to show the wash day experience logo, you have to click on the HTML tab (on the left, next to compose) when writing your post and past it there. This way the button will show. Kisses!

  2. Big hair don't care!!! I really like it. Can you come and do my braid outs for me? LOL

  3. Your hair will be beautiful and healthy if you combine hair care products with right nutrition. Most nutrients for hair are received from blood, not from outside. That is why your food should be reach in vitamins. In addition, vitamins could be taken separately. I am taking special dietary supplement for hair - Hair Gain Formula by Military Grade. It contains natural compounds which enhance hair growth. Moreover, this product is the only nutraceutical which possesses prostaglandin D2 blocking properties. My hair becomes more shiny and thick. I really like how this product works for my hair!
