My Growth and Setbacks 2003-2010


This Weekend's Wash Day Routine

Here is what I did today:
  1. Detangled,
  2. Clarified with diluted Elucence Clarifying shampoo (first time in a few weeks),
  3. Shampooed with Elucence Shampoo,
  4. Applied reconstructor, let it sit for 5 minutes, and rinsed,
  5. Applied Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner and sat under hair steamer for 25 minutes.
I usually apply my reconstructor with my deep conditioner and sit under the hair steamer with both products in my hair.  However, the Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor directs that it should be used for up to 5 minutes.  On the other hand, the Elucence reconstructor directs to leave it in for 15 minutes.  So, I rinsed out the Aphogee before I deep conditioned. 

There are times when it is okay to improvise with products, and then there are times when you should follow the directions.  With protein products it is a good idea to follow the directions.     

After I rinse out the conditioner (yes, its still in my hair as I type lol), I'm going to air dry and either do a braid out or do bantu knots.  I will post pictures tomorrow.
