Wash Day + Blowout

Last weekend I didn’t have to work so I decided to blow out my hair and try a hot oil treatment.


I used the Jamaican Black Castor Oil with Rosemary for my hot oil treatment.  I have to say that I was very disappointed and won’t be trying it again.


I washed with the Keracare Detangling Shampoo and conditioned with the Giovanni products.  I used the Giovanni because they both condition better than the Oyin Honey Hemp and I wanted my hair to be in the best shape possible.


I used the generic Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum for my heat protectant.  I have used this for years and it is definitely one of my favorite products.

Surprisingly, I did not comb through or detangle the sections before blow drying.  I just went at it and the comb attachment glided through my hair with no problems.



I was really pleased with my results and actually wore my hair out all week.

To maintain, I would twist at night to help keep it stretched and knot free.  I started using the Oyin Hair Dew and Burnt Sugar Pomade each night, but the Hair Dew made my hair shrink up fast.  So eventually I stopped and just added the pomade or I would retwist without any product.  I was even able to get my hair in a puff!



I will definitely blow my hair out again because my hair is much more manageable when stretched.  I don’t want to keep putting heat on it though, so I may try blowing out on the cool setting and see how that goes.
