Wash Day - 8 Weeks Post

Yesterday was a holiday so I took the opportunity to have my wash day which was also my sew-in prep. My hair was still feeling incredible from my last wash day so even though I was not ready to wash my hair I was not taking any chances;
prepping your hair for a long term protective style is important. I am getting my sew-in done tomorrow so this wash day I focused on strengthening my hair so protein was the order of the day. This is what I did this wash day:

Pro-poo: Coconut and tea tree oil mix for about one hour.

Shampoo: Redken Hair Cleansing Cream followed by Affirm FiberGuard Normalizing Shampoo. This normalizing shampoo leaves my hair feeling very moisturised even though it has all those sulphates.

Protein: Aphogee Two-Step Protein Treatment, this thing stinks and is very sticky but it works like a charm. I also used the Balancing Moisturiser which I don’t like but insist on using up.

Deep Condition: Deep conditioned under my steamer using my beloved Macadamia Deep Repair Masque, read review here!

Leave-ins: Matrix Biolage Leave-in Tonic and Aphogee Keratin & Green Tea Restructurizer followed by some Redken Smooth Down Heat Glide.

My last was day I did a roller set, the set was a fail but it left my hair more manageable. This week I attempted a flexi-rod set which was a complete fail also but yet again my hair is more manageable since it is not as dense as when I air dry.
How was your last wash day?


  1. I can't wait to see your sew in Candice!
