Two Simple Routines That Take The Stress Out Of Wash Day

An accurate description of wash day for naturals

No matter how much we postpone wash day, we still have to face it. Does detangling, prepoo, deep conditioning, hot oil treatments and oil rinsing sound familiar?

Well as a student, I don’t have the time to do all of that. I don’t have an actual regimen and I explained why in are you tired of hair regimens? .

If you’re a busy natural who wants to simplify her wash days,  you can try out any of these wash day regimens below.

This regimens cover the basics which are shampooing, detangling and deep conditioning.

Regimen one:

1) Divide your hair into sections and apply a deep conditioner which will also serve as your detangler.

2) Detangle and put your hair in twists.

3) Wear a shower cap for 10-30 mins (depending on you) and wash your hair as usual.

3) Apply a moisturizer.

Regimen two:
1) Wash your hair in sections with a shampoo.

2) Apply your conditioner and detangle. Rinse off.

3) Apply a deep conditioner.                

4) Rinse and moisturize your hair.

After washing tips:

1) If you want to do a roller set or use perm rods, just apply a setting lotion after moisturizing your hair.

2) If you want to do a braid out or twist out, do so after applying your moisturizer and styling product.

3) Allow you hair to air dry in braids to get stretched hair.

4) Use a t-shirt or microfiber towel to avoid frizzy hair.

  1. I use to hide in the closet on hair wash day when I was a little girl cause my family wanted to turn my wavy curly hair straight and it just went poofy instead then they’d beat me up.

    1. I’m so sorry to hear that. Your hair texture is unique and isn’t your fault. I can’t imagine what you went through, I can only hope that you can now make a stand for yourself because your hair is absolutely beautiful!
