Hair Journey Journal – September 22, 2012

#HHJ – Execellent wash day especially for 8 weeks post.

It started last night with the pre-poo of grapeseed oil and Redken Smooth Down Butter Treat (a favorite of Jeni at  I did this until 2am when I couldn’t stand the shower cap any longer and had to replace it with my satin scarf.

At 8am I shampooed with Shea Moisture shampoo, conditioned with my favorite Suave with EVOO.

My DC was with only one product my new purchase of Kiehl’s Superbly Smoothing Argan Hair Pak (silcone free and paraben free for course, unruly hair)….which is THE BOMB!!!! (Thanks Betty).  I sat under the steamer for 20 minutes (I always use bottled water and today I added 3 cap full of aloe vera juice) and rinsed.

Added my normal ACV and rinsed.

T-shirt dryed. Added my normal Aphogee green tea spray and air dried 70% then put on my microfiber band and bun the rest. (Thanks T!

This was the BEST DC ever and at 9 weeks post I am amazed!!

FYI – I have moved up my texlaxing date to September 29th for my birthday celebration…which you are all invited (-; . I wanted my hair to be FAB, as much as it could be for the party. A great time to enjoy my 6th month Hair Journey anniversary which was also this month on the 17th.

I hope I don’t sweat my hair out on the dance floor.  LOL!

Thanks for reading!  XO – Colette
