I forgot to wash my hair!!!

Yes, it’s true. I missed my wash day last week. So, I decided to really pamper my hair this Sunday and really try to make up for my neglect — I wasn’t moisturizing properly every night either. Just so you can get an idea, here’s a before and after shot of the bun I wore all week:

This week, I followed my pretty standard (by now) wash day routine:

  • Prepooed with Organics Hair Mayonnaise for about half an hour and rinsed out. I got distracted and my hair ended up drying most of the way….
  • Rewet my hair and cowashed with Lisa Rachel Conditioner and Cleanser with Olive Oil and Aloe. I massaged this into my scalp a bit (it tingles which I love!) and rinsed it out.
  • I followed this up with a tea rinse. I am out of green tea, and plan to buy black tea next, so I just used the regular old Lipton tea my mom buys. I blotted off the excess and left it in my hair.
  • I had already mixed a new batch of my DIY Deep Conditioner mix and couldn’t decide if I wanted to use that or my Organix Sea Mineral Moisture. I didn’t want to do another rinse out (because I had already done my tea rinse), so I went the DIY route and applied it all over my hair (in sections) and let it air dry for a couple of hours.

This is what it looks like in the jar. It’s such a creamy, pretty deep conditioner. I even use it as a moisturizer when I need a little extra on my ends.


  • Lastly, I spritzed my hair my DIY liquid leave in conditioner, applied tea tree creme to my scalp, Cantu shea butter to the length of my hair, and finished with grapeseed oil. I then braided my hair for some overnight curls.

      I actually picked it up at a beauty supply store not too far from my house. I went specifically to find something to cowash my hair and after having to choose between brands, I was stuck in between this one and their Jojoba and Chamomile one, and I ultimately picked this one because of the olive oil. The first time I used it, I didn’t massage my scalp like it says, so I had no idea it tingled. But this time, I did it, and it made my head feel great! The smell reminds me of oatmeal, and it rinses out really easily and my hair feels soft and moisturized. I have only shampooed my hair once since I bought this stuff, and I plan to buy more and try the other one! They had little packets of it for like a dollar so I’ll probably try it that way. But the bottle was definitely worth the $8!
