Wash Day (3 week post relaxer)

Wash day was yesterday. I'm going to try and make Thursday my regular wash day. We'll see how that goes....
Here is a summary of how things went.

I Wet my hair and  Pre-shampooed with my castor oil mixture.
Shampooed with Just for Me hair milk shampoo. I really have to get some more shampoo (or try another brand) since this bottle is practically empty.
Rinsed with two bags of green tea. Then I applied the Honey & Almond conditioner, placed a plastic cap over my head and blew the hair dryer over my covered hair for some time.
 I rinsed the tea and conditioner out in the shower and wrapped my hair in a cotton shirt.

 I tried a different leave-in spray this time. It's called Mane 'n Tail Braid Sheen Spray. I know, I know, your wondering why I would use something that says "Braid Sheen Spray" as a leave-in. My only excuse is that it was sitting on my shelf and I decided to use it since it contains glycerin which is used to draw moisture to the hair. I just wish it smelled better. I'm not feeling the scent.
I sealed my hair with a mixture my mom made. She said she used Shea butter, sunflower oil, castor oil, almond oil, and rosemary and basil essence. I don't know if I like the mixture yet. The consistency was a weird grainy yet oily texture.
Maybe it was the sheen spray or the Shea mixture, but my hair didn't seem that moisturized when I  braided it last night. I guess I'll find out if it was when I unbraid it tomorrow (or maybe Monday.)

Anyway I experienced another almost shed free wash day. I hope this becomes a regular statement.
