Wash Day: Curly Mo-Hawk

Hello Loves,

Back again with another wash day. I did not write about my previous wash day because I am trying to figure something out.

Remember the mud wash I raved so much about. With the softness and smoothness I achieved. Guys, I think the smoothness is due to the fact that it shuts my hair shaft tight!! Does that make sense? Some would say this is good news, but for a low porosity hair like mine, I actually need it open to receive the treatment, hence why I use extra heat with my steamer. I am not a 100% sure, but I think I noticed that my hair felt a bit dry to the touch (although my fingers where "moisturised"), a couple of days after my wash day. This normally doesn't happen, as my trusted LOC method works!!. I will have to try again with the mud wash and keep a close eye to be sure. But yea, that is a theory I have. What do you guy think? Am I making any sense? Let me know in the comment section.

On to the matter of the day though,

Wash day went something like this:

  1. Pre-pooed with my staples, coconut oil and hello hydration (Check out my video to see how my pre poo routine goes exactly)
  2. Shampooed after about 30mins with Creme of Nature Argan Oil Moisture & Shine Shampoo.
  3. T-shirt dried for a couple of minutes and the steamed for 20 mins with Mane choice Green Tea and Carrot deep conditioning mask. After that, an extra 40 mins under a plastic bag.
  4. Rinsed that out and styled my hair. Of course, using my LOC method with kinky curly knot today, grapeseed oil and Jane Carter Nourish and Shine.
I would have said my wash that was pretty simple, but the styling took forever. Mainly because I couldn't figure out how to braid my left side with my short hands!! LOL. And the perm rodding technique was failing me. In the end though, after about 2 hours of frustration and nearly giving up, I figured it out and finished. I have a video on how I did it on my YouTube channel too, link here.

And here are some pictures, cause you know I love taking them. PS: I post all my pictures on Instagram first!! So follow me :) @growgrowinggrown

  4. Your perm rod curls look like bantu knots! I love it! I've been considering a mud/clay wash but I definitely don't want to have closed cuticles. Do you feel like your hair was moisturized after you washed this week?

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience!

    1. I dont know why I am just seeing this!. Thanks alot hun. My hair felt very moisturised after this wash day. I think I have to do the mud wash again and maybe this time, style it the same way have a better comparison. Cause I have a weird feeling that the styling also affects the amount of moisture thats retained. If it makes sense. LOL
