Black Hair: My Wash Day Regimen

DSCF0378[1]So today is wash day! Keep reading to find out what I use to shampoo my hair.

In previous posts I already mentioned that I only shampoo my hair once a month; because of that, my shampooing process is more extensive to make sure I get rid of all the product and build up from the month, and to make sure I am not to harsh on my hair in the process.

The first step is the pre-poo which is basically a hot oil treatment that coats your strands so that the shampoo doesn’t overly strip your hair of its natural oils (basically acting like a barrier). This is also a great time to give yourself a scalp massage, which increases blood flow to the scalp, and aids in hair growth.

The oils I use are EVCO (Extra Virgin Coconut Oil), JBCO (Jamaican Black Castor Oil), and Darcy’s Botanicals Peppermint Scalp Elixir.

You will also need an applicator bottle.
