The Wash Day Experience | Roller Setting Challenges

The Wash Day Experience

So thanks to the fabulous ladies (KLP & Keyda) of SavingOurStrands I was invited to co-host this week's 'Wash Day Experience!' I was super excited for the opportunity because quite frankly I've been in a bit of a hair funk lately (Winter is sucking the life outta me!) and really needed to give myself a swift kick in the butt to get out of it. Co-hosting this week's 'Wash Day Experience' was the perfect way to do it!

Here's what I did:
  • Braided my hair into four sections (thanks to Abbi N of BelowTheWaist for this fabulous idea!) 
  • Shampooed with my Shea Moisture Moisture Retention Shampoo
  • Rinsed and applied my Nexxus Emergencee to the length of my hair for about 2 minutes.
  • Rinsed with lukewarm water, applied my Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner, and sat under my Gold N Hot conditioning cap for about 20 minutes. 
  • Rinsed and applied a bit of my Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Daily Treatment while I showered. 
  • Did a final rinse and t-shirt dried my hair for about 30 minutes. 
  • Applied my normal leave ins (Chi Keratin Mist, Kimmaytube Leave In, & Macademia Natural Healing Oil). 

Style: Since my relaxer day is fastly approaching (next Saturday to be exact) I decided to roller set my hair. Not to mention I was totally inspired by an Instagram picture FancyFlairLady posted of her recent roller set. I mixed a bit of aloevera juice, mane n tail detangler, and lotta body. After sectioning my hair I spritzed each section and proceeded to roller set. Due to my impatience with sitting under the dryer and my bright idea to attempt my first at home saran wrap my results left something to be desired. However, I refused to let all of my hard work be in vein so I whipped out my caruso steam rollers to give my hair the 'vavoom' I was craving and boy did it ever! Here are my results! And because I was feeling extra good this weekend I even recorded a video tutorial to go along with my wash day post! 

How was your wash day?

  1. I have some Macadamia Natural Healing Oil that I haven't tried yet. I'm going to include that in my next leave-in mix next week! And your roller set came out so beautifully! Each time I want to do one, I get lazy. I'm going to check out your video and hopefully your inspiration will prompt me to try one soon :)

    How often do you use the Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Daily Treatment? I've been curious about this product.

    1. Thank you! I hadn't done one in a long time because I was being lazy lol. I've been using the Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Daily Treatment each wash day as my final rinse out conditioner. So far I really like. It's very moisturizing and helps to cut down on tangles.

  2. Great minds think alike! I whipped out my Nexxus Emergencee too this week! I love the way that stuff nips breakage in the bud! Thanks for cohosting the #washdayexperience chica!

    1. LOL I hadn't used my nexxus emergencee in forever! I'll definitely have to put it back into rotation! Thanks for the opportunity!

  3. I need to dust off my rollers and do a roller set. Great results Courtnea. Looking forward to your relaxer results.

    1. Thank you! I can't wait to see how much length I retained!

  4. You look gorgeous Courtnea!! So full of life in that photo lol. I can't wait to get my hands on some steam rollers - it shall be soon!

    Did the braids help the cause or nah? Thanks for the shout-out!

    1. Thank you! Yes the braids did help! I just have to figure out how to keep them from unraveling halfway through the process! It's definitely a great thing to do further along in a stretch!
