YUP, a Hot mess!! LOL…But that’s ok, nothing a little deep conditioning can’t handle.
But since I went so long with out washing, I decided to do an Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse before I shampooed. Some do this before they shampoo, I’ve seen people do it after they’ve shampooed and conditioned, but for me since I really only like the ACV rinse to cleanse my scalp and I am NOT fond of the smell so,I do it first.
Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse Recipe:
1/2 of ACV
1/2 of Warm Water
1/3 Aloe Vera Juice
1 teaspoon of honey
A few drops of Grapeseed Oil (or your oil of choice)
I put this mix into an applicator bottle with a tip so that it is easy to apply directly to my scalp. I massage that into my scalp with my finger tips. I spend a lot more time working it into the front of my head b/c that is where my scalp gets the driest and flakes the most.
After I applied the ACVR I let it site for about 3-5mins, just so it can soften the scalp residue, then I rinsed with cool water.
Then I shampooed with my Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Shampoo, rinsed, and applied my Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Conditioner and detangled my hair.
I applied my Deep Conditioner (CD Black Vanilla Hair Smoothie) without rinsing my regular conditioner out. I put a shower cap on and my Heat Therapy Wrap. I let that sit for about 30-35mins
Once I rinsed I was ready to style my hair how ever I wanted! I decided to just band my hair and let it it dry over night. If you want to see how I band my hair Click Here, The next day I just went a head and did some quick Bantu Knots using just my Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter.
