HIGHLY REQUESTED VIDEO: Updated Step by Step Wash-Day Products (Very Detailed)!

Begin by watching my YouTube video here: 

 

STEP 1: PRE-POO

I pre-poo (prepare my hair for shampooing) using Melrose coconut oil - organic cold-pressed virgin oil. I leave this on overnight. Buy here.

You can also use Olive or Grapefruit oils as a pre-poo. I wouldn’t recommend heavier oils such as JBCO.

STEP 4: DEEP CONDITION

Moisturizing Deep conditioner: Your Theorie Ultimate Reform Hair Mask. Buy here.

I used to use Shea Moisture’s Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil Deep Conditioner and Spiral Solutions Deeply Decadent Intensive Moisturizing Treatment both of which I believe have now been discontinued.

I always deep condition using a steamer.

If my hair is really dry, I add 1 tspn of honey and 1 tspn of olive oil to my mix. Hydration galore!

STEPS 5: RINSES

Use any brand of coffee or tea for your rinses. 
I often do an Apple Cider Vinegar rinse (after I rinse off my DC) to restore my hair's pH to 4.5. I put it on for 4-5 mins. I then rinse off my hair with cool water. Cool water keeps your cuticles flat while hot water lifts them and let's all the moisture we've worked so hard to capture, escape!! 


STEP 6: FINAL RINSE

My last and final rinse is done with ice cold water!! Yep! I'm a brave heart! Hahaha!

STEP 7: DRYING

I then wrap my hair in an old cotton t-shirt. Cotton t-shirts prevent mechanical damage caused by rubbing your hair with a towel.


I then let my hair air dry till it is 70% dry.

STEP 8: SEAL
