I have been all about this flat twisted protective style lately, which has been such an easy way to get through wash day in less than an hour. I’ve been DCing or cowashing twice a week and retwisting my damp hair (Products I’ve been using: As I Am Coconut Cowash, Chi Infra Treatment, Biolage Detangling Solution or KeraMinerals Smoothing Conditioner). But I know I can’t go on for too long without shampooing and thoroughly detangling my hair. Especially as I get deeper into this relaxer stretch. So, this weekend I decided to jump right back into my roller sets.
Typically, I use the gray or purple magnetic rollers, but this week I opted for these aqua green magnetic rollers, which are a gigantic 3 inches in diameter. For this week’s wash day I’m going for straight and detangled hair from root to tip. I used a lot of my favorites products for getting a good roller set.
What I Used:
- Ceramide-rich oil pre-poo: Wheat Germ Oil
- Moisturizing/Chelating Shampoo: Mizani Phormula-7 Chelating Shampoo
- Silicone Rich Moisturizing Conditioner: Design Essentials Rosemary Mint Conditioner.
- Leave-ins perfect for heat styling: I went with my forever favorites, Aphogee Keratin and Green Tea Restructurizer and GVP The Conditioner.
After sitting under the hooded dryer for about 45-60 minutes (if you combine all the stopping and restarting), I removed the rollers, finger combed my hair and this is what I was left with. Very nicely straight hair even with almost 3 months of new growth to contend with. I was very impressed.
