We all know that I don’t follow strict natural hair routines because my day to day hair life is different and I adjust accordingly.
Each wash day isn’t the same because the conditions leading to them aren’t the same.
I might just feel like washing my hair with just my black soap, regular conditioner and applying an oil after. A very simple wash day.
Another time, my hair might be really dry and in need of some TLC so I’ll pre-poo, wash, deep condition and moisturize or I’ll deep condition, wash and moisturize.
You can see that I go with different variations depending on what mood I’m in or what my hair needs.
On this particular wash day, I decided that I wanted to end up with my 4c hair very defined without the general ‘applying lots of gel to dripping wet hair and dealing with shrinkage’ process.
Here’s how I went about it.
I put my hair into 4 twists, sprayed each section with my leave in conditioner and detangled with a wide tooth comb.
I shampooed with my dudu osun black soap .
I applied my organics hair mayonnaise by Africa’s best and covered my hair with a shower cap for about 15 minutes.
After drying my hair, I applied Emily millionaire’s coconut oil and herbs to my hair as a moisturizer then I did 10 braids.
The braids did the trick. When I took down the braids, my natural coils were very defined and I got a beautiful faux wash and go look.
