Hi guys! Happy Monday! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! Today I’m gonna talk to you about washing my extensions.
Now you guys know how I am with washing my hair. I work out every week day, and add that to regular sweat (because it’s summer) and every day debris, I HAVE to wash my hair every week. However, with my extensions, I waited until the two week mark because I wanted to fight off the unavoidable frizz for as long as possible.
Never again. The itchiness, oh God, the itchiness. It was horrible.
Guys. My scalp was disgusting. It was bad. Everytime I would scratch, I would have stuff under my fingernails. It was just gross, and it was definitely time to wash. So this past weekend, I washed my hair.
I started by separating my hair into four sections, just to make it easier on myself.
I then used my spray bottle filled with diluted shampoo and began spraying, ONLY on the roots. I only sprayed on the roots because the length of the hair would be cleansed with the running water. I massaged that in very well with the pads of my fingers and moved on to the next section.
My plan was to wash each section twice, but after feeling how clean my scalp was, I kept it to one wash.
It didn’t take long at all, and when I was finished with one section, I kept it up out of the way with a clip.
I finished rather quickly, and then went on to moisturizing.
This was my scalp after cleaning.
Clean, just how I likes it! 🙂
I moisturized my hair in the four sections that I shampooed in. I went in with my Cantu Shea Butter, and then sealed with a mixture of olive and castor oils. I also oiled my scalp with the same mixture. I think it’s important to note that I did not mosturize the Marley hair. I kept it to where my hair stopped.
I moisturize my hair like this weekly, whether dirty or freshly washed. It’s important to me to keep my hair well moisturized while in a protective style such as this.
To maintain it while it dried, I braided the four sections, and then put a silk scarf, only over the crown of my head, to calm down the frizz. After a couple hours, this is how my hair looked.
All in all, this was a new experience, but not an extremely difficult or bad one.
Until next time,
