So I saw a blogger talking about oil rinse. I stopped what I was reading to research exactly what this was and see its benefits etc. Since I was planning on washing my hair this weekend anyway I decided to try it out- a test run of sorts. Basically if my memory serves me correctly, the procedure goes like this:
- Use shampoo (I used almond castille soap) wash with warm water
- Add favorite oil (I used one by DooGro) to hair especially on the ends, the focus is not the scalp . Rinse again with warm water
- Use conditioner- a dollop or two- (I used Hair One's Tea Tree)
- Rinse with cool water to close in moisture and wash out some of the oil
When my cousin went to comb out my hair, some time after, had no problem. She put my hair in twists using the fantasia ic olive oil styling gel dry hair formula. I sealed the ends with a tea tree blend (had tree tree, castor oil things like that) by mega care--just rubbed a little bit of oil in my figures and rubbed the ends. and i oiled my actual scalp with...oops can't remember LOL.
My twists seem a little longer than the last time and I like that they curl in some places on their own :) Let's see if I can make it to a good 7 days with them (on day 2 now, last time lasted a good 5 but left it till day 6).
