(Co) Wash Dayaries #6: Out with the Old and In with the New

So hey everyone! Today is my first co-wash day since I started my Updated August Hair Regimen. I was super excited to try out my new products and the whole co-washing concept.

Status: 11 weeks post 

Focus: Moisture and Protein

Pre-poo/ Deep Condition(Wednesday night 10:17 p.m)- I started out on my old Princess crown braids. After taking them down, I sectioned my hair into four. I then applied my Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser Balm from root to tip of each section while lightly finger detangling. After completing all sections, I twisted each section and secured with a hair tie. I then put on a plastic cap followed by my satin scarf.

Co-wash ( Thursday morning 6:26 a.m)- I took down my twists and divided my hair into two sections. I then applied my Dark and Lovely Au Natural Cleansing Conditioner focusing mainly on my roots. I then used my shampoo massage brush to work in the product, clean and stimulate my scalp. I rinsed that section and repeated the same steps on the other. I then sprayed both sections with my Moisturizing Leave-in mix ( Hello Hydration conditioner, water and glycerin).

Airdry ( 6:50 a.m)- I dried my hair using a cotton t-shirt for about 10 minutes. I then sprayed my Leave-in moisture mix again, applied my Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair Conditioner as my leave-in and my Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Dry Oil while lightly finger detangling.I then allowed my hair to dry.

Styling (10:15 a.m)- I moisturized and sealed my hair using the LCO method where I applied my moisturizing leave-in mix, my One N’ Only Argan Oil Styling Cream and my Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Dry Oil. I then placed my hair into a loose high bun…. I know I’m supposed to be sticking to my Princess Crown Braids but I get bored really easily and one style is just killing me so I think I am going to do another protective style for the other 3 days ( tutorial to be posted soon). 

Overall Thoughts: I enjoyed this wash day and how easy and effortless it was, not to mention the major time reduction with Cowashing. I also really liked using new products and seeing how they worked on my hair. I am so excited to review them! I got a little more tangles in my hair during this wash day but my shedding was the same as in the previous weeks so I am not quite alarmed. However, I am trying to address the cause of my tangles.

Overall Time: 3 hours and 41 minutes( excluding overnight deep condition time)
