Hair Today: The Wash N Go

Hey ladies!  Just thought I'd do a quick post of how I'm wearing my hair today.  I haven't done any updates since the last because I have been very lazy with my hair.  I blame it on the weather, and the fact that because our temps here in Atlanta are still below average--I rarely feel like leaving the house.  So why do the hair? haha

Oh yes, I did henna+indigo.  Now, I do love henna, but the jury is still out on the indigo part.  My hair is darker, not super jet black, which after the fact I am kind of glad it's not.  I understand that getting that super black color with indigo requires a cumulative build-up of it.  Meaning, I would have to do it several times for it to "build up".  Well, I don't think I will be doing this.  I feel like the indigo was just a bit too messy.  I may just stick to Natural Instincts which fades slightly over time, and also gives me the option of lightening it, if I get the whim.

So here is today's wash-n-go:

Products used:

Trader Joe's Nourish Spa Conditioner
Coconut Oil
Eco-Styler Olive Oil Gel
Castor Oil

Tools used:

Wide Toothed Comb
Blowdryer with Diffuser Attachment
2 small clips

What I did:

I co-washed in the shower and detangled with a wide tooth comb.  I rinsed out the conditioner and once out of the shower, I reapplied the TJ's conditioner through my hair lightly.  Second, I applied coconut oil throughout my hair.  Third, I applied a dab of the Eco-Styler through my hair in 4 sections.  I finished off by applying a dab of castor oil to the ends.  Next, I diffused my hair on medium heat (warm) for about 15 min, leaving it to airdry the rest of the way.  And this is what I got.  As you can see, I pinned my bangs back with 2 small clips.  My bangs aren't quite at the length I want them to be for me to wear the "curly bangs" look.  Also, I only used the wide-toothed comb IN THE SHOWER.  I do not comb through my hair at all once out of the shower as I feel it disturbs the curls and the "clumping".

Thanks for reading!
