Wash Day + Length Check | (Giveaway Reminder - $25 Ulta eGift Card)

So here we go! Another wash day post. Well this wash actually occurred two weeks ago. I'm trying to hang on to this work I put in, since I ended up doing a flat iron and length check! And it was definitely work! But let's get on to the deets.

Detangling
I did the same method I did the last couple of wash days. I parted my hair into the same four sections and saturated with Mane and Tale Detangler.  I then hopped into the shower and used my detangling brush along with the running water to detangle my hair. I had to grab my Aussie Moist to help with a few knots from the twist and curl set.

Shampoo
I shampooed with Mane and Tale Shampoo. At this point my hair was in 8 braids as shown in this post here.

Deep Condition
Overnight with my new favorite conditioner TGIN  Honey Miracle Hair Mask.  I'm planning to stock up. I will have to do a review soon.

Leave-Ins Plus Blow Dry
After rinsing and thoroughly detangling I applied my leave-ins and blow dried my hair on the cool setting.  Once my hair was completely dry, I flat ironed using my Sedu Revolution and trimmed as I went through each section. So I don't have a before trim pic, but I wasn't too worried about it.

Leave-ins and Heat Protectant

On a side note - I really like the blow dryer I've had for the past couple years. I don't really mention it much, but I love that it has a cool air setting; not the cold shot button like a lot that I've seen, but it actually has a cool air setting and you can change the speed of the air as well.  On the cool setting the display screen turns blue, when off the display screen is orange. I rarely use it on the heat setting; only if in a rush.




I tried to get a decent length check pic. (My sis took this. I had to beg her so I took what I could get. LOL!) My hair did not stay flat at all after I finished. By the time I got home from work my hair just felt frizzy and dull. To get a true length check I tried to stretch it the best that I could. I think I'm around line 12 which is right at the top of my bra strap.  I haven't retained much length which is to be expected with me transitioning and all. I still have some bone straight ends that need to be chopped away; and then to grow out the texlaxed section!

  1. Your hair is thriving honey!!! You're definitely doing something (probably more like A LOT OF THINGS) right!

    I have Nexxus HydraLight Leave-in in my stash and I just can't figure out how to use it in a way that works. I think that I need to revisit it soon!

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience chica!

    1. I sure hope I can keep it up! Thank you, KLP!!! I really like the Nexxus HydraLight on my blow dried hair. I was surprised how soft it felt because I wasn't sure I would like it. But it works!

  8. Your hair has gotten so long!!! I've been so super curious about the TGIN line but quite honestly....I despise the name! I hate anything exclusive of relaxed girls! I know, silly reason, but I feel like why can't we just all love healthy hair? Okay...steps down off soapbox!

  12. Hi Andrea,
    This is the second time I am hearing about the TGIN range!!! Starting to get excited about it even though I have relaxed hair... tell me more about this honey mask range *stands humbly at the back of the queue with hat in hand*

    i love how thick your hair is right now! and I love the lights on your blowdryer It reminds me of Tron. Where did you get your tron blowdryer from? I hardly use my blow dryer but i just need to know that I have it you know. (I already judge this hoarding behaviour I have).

    Finally, i can relate to trying to have an international give-away. I have US/UK and Canada based readers and I struggle to give them prizes as well (I am based in South Africa). Lots of shipping companies don't allow us to send liquids to other countries - so I can't give do product give-aways across countries.

    1. Thank you, Kangopie! I got my tron blow dryer from Sally's Beauty Supply. ha ha!
      Oh I love that TGIN Hair Mask! I think products geared toward naturals can be used on relaxed hair too. I'm like Ebony, I wish they wouldn't do that. All hair pretty much has the same needs.
      Oh and i really wanted to do an international giveaway. I was trying to figure out the best way to make that work out but I just couldn't figure it out. It gets complicated!
