Washday | The Low Bun Experience

This past Friday couldn't get here fast enough. For some reason my scalp was itching like crazy! Well actually I know what the reason was. My hair just needed a good washing. Here's how the washday went:

  • Detangled with Mane N Tail Detangler
  • Applied Keracare Humecto conditioner
  • DCed with Gold N Hot conditioning cap for about 20 minutes
  • Rinsed and shampooed with Shea Moisture Retention Shampoo
  • Rinsed and applied a small amount of the Generic version of Matrix biolage detangling conditioner.
  • Did a final rinse and t-shirt dried my hair for about 30 minutes.
  • Applied my usual leave ins using the L (Chi Keratin Mist) O (GVP Smoothing Serum) C (Kimmaytube Leave In) method. 
  • Allowed my hair to air dry and then moisturized and sealed using my Giovanni Direct leave in and coocnut oil. 
  • Massaged JBCO into my scalp and sealed my ends.

I'm about 2 weeks away from getting my next relaxer and this is normally about the time my
hair decides not to cooperate. Meaning high buns, mid-cenetered buns, etc are out of the question. Previously I used to force my hair into a high bun, but this time around I decided to rock a low bun. Because I air dried my hair I had the biggest, softest low bun I think I've ever created without using a filler! I was so amazed I even took a comparison shot to see how far my hair has come in terms of growth! Oh and to jazz up my low bun I threw on a cute headband and a fun pair of earrings. I'm all for low maintenance no muss no fuss hair styles and that's exactly what this low bun did for me!
