Or "My Lazy holiday wash day"
Good afternoon lovelies! I hope you all had a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend! Now that we are all back to the grind of the work week, I figured I post about my last wash day. Since this past weekend marked the unofficial start of summer, I thought that I would style my hair into the ultimate summertime look: a braidout.I just felt like my hair had to match my 'summer and the living is easy' sort of mood.
As per usual, I washed my hair with Shea Moisture Moisture Retention Shampoo. I then followed up by DCing for an hour underneath a heat cap with ORS Hair Repair Nourishing Conditioner. I was a little worried about my DC because I only had 1 pack of DC (I usually use at least 2 packs). However, with this wash, I found that I really only needed 1 pack. It makes me wonder if I have been using more conditioner than my hair needs. Ion't know. It's something that I need to follow up with. Anyway, post DC, I detangled my hair and sectioned it. I then applied Giovanni Direct Leave In (an old staple of mine that I abandoned for some reason) to the sections and proceeded to plait my hair using Taliah Waajid Curly Curl cream. I let my hair air dry overnight.
Check my hair after I was done with my Miss Celie braids (I did around 10 in total):

How about you? What did you do with your hair this holiday weekend?
