I am back on track with my wash days. Last week, I simply washed my hair as normal and put it into two plaits. So I didn’t feel the need to post about my uneventful wash day. Fast forward to this week’s wash day, I decided to give Bantu knots another try. I put them up last week but didn’t take them down until today.
I realized I was dead on with my last failed attempt, and I used way too much product. I also made the knots smaller, and I think things turned out great. I see a tutorial in my future. LOL
My wash day was super simple, but let’s get into the process.
Pre-poo: I applied Joico Moisture Recovery and covered my hair with a plastic cap for a few hours.
Shampoo: Agadir Daily Moisturizing Shampoo (Sulfate-Free). I normally shampoo my scalp only and let the shampoo rinse off cleanse my ends; however, this time I needed to remove some product and apply shampoo scalp to tip.
Conditioner: I didn’t deep condition this week. I conditioned while in the shower using Icon Repair Solutions Effective Care Treatment.
Detangle: While rinsing out the conditioner, I detangled my hair from ends to roots.
Leave Ins: Wave Nouveau Moisturizing Mist, Giovanni Direct Leave-In, Hairveda Whipped Crème Ends Hydration, sealed with Almond Oil. I added a little dab of Afroveda’s Hemp Seed Lock, Twist, and Roll for a little extra shine.
I completely air-dried my hair before setting my hair with Bantu knots. Friday, I will give you all of the details on my Bantu knots. I didn’t want to make today’s post super long.
