Wash Day Post – Airdrying & a Bun

Hey loves, hope you are all having a wonderful week, just thought to come on here to share my wash day post with you all. I cannot overemphasize the benefits of air drying when washing our hair to improve its overall length when it is done correctly you enjoy fluffy and soft hair. I intend to do a post on this. Anyway I started out with a pre shampoo treatment I cannot stress enough the importance of this step. It is crucial especially when you have tangled, dry hair it really does speed up the wash day process and makes it so much more easier and less stressful.

I used VO5 Silky Experiences Shea Cashmere Conditioner as a pre shampoo treatment I divided my hair into about 6 sections and made sure to apply the conditioner throughout each section of hair concentrating on the roots and the tips, finger detangling as I went along. I then sealed everything in with my Wura’s Secret Hair Growth Oil. In my own experience I prefer pre pooing with a conditioner and applying oil over the top to seal the conditioner in. I l covered my hair with a plastic cap and a shower cap and left it in for an hour.


I then proceeded to wash my hair I used the ORS Aloe Creamy Shampoo because I needed to clarify my hair as I had some product build up. I then deep conditioned for about 4 hours of which I sat under my curl formers hooded dryer attachment for about 45 minutes. I deep conditioned with my Wura’s Secret Moisturising Conditioner, ORS Replenishing Conditioner, Wura’s Secret Hair Growth Oil and Coconut Oil this deep conditioning mix seems like a win for me. I also sealed in the deep conditioner with olive oil – I like to do this as a form of oil rinsing.

I normally only detangle my hair after the deep conditioner has been sitting in it for a while before I rinse it out as I believe this minimizes breakage as the deep conditioner has had a chance to work its magic. When I was detangling with conditioner still in my hair, I noticed my hair had tons of slip and I incurred minimal breakage I was really happy about this.

I rinsed out the deep conditioner with cold water and dried my hair, gently in one direction with a towel. I then applied my Wura’s Secret Hair Growth Oil to my scalp and used my Cantu Shea Butter Leave In and Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Styling Lotion throughout my hair and sealed with coconut oil.

I then put my hair in one ponytail and went out for about 2 hours my hair was almost dry when I got home. I have found that going out allows my hair to air dry faster. When I got home after the 2 hours I proceeded to detangle my hair with a wide tooth comb as it was semi damp and applied some coconut oil again to seal. I put it back in a ponytail wore my satin scarf to lay my edges and went to sleep.

In the morning when I woke up, I applied a bit more Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Styling Lotion and sealed with coconut oil and put my hair in a bun, this was the final look – a fluffy bun.

  2. I typically used to use my DC as my prepoo, but these days I use the Wuras Secret Hair Growth Oil and a light water/conditioner mix instead. Or sometimes, I'll do a hot oil treatment with it.

  3. I also love using V05 as a pre-poo, and after rinsing my DC I like to put some extra before applying my leave-in.
