Wash day for me comes at least once per week, twice, if I have too much product in my hair from styling. With wash day, for me, always comes deep conditioning, and of course sealing. Here are my product cocktails for my wash day routine.

I have been using the same deep conditioning cocktail for as long as I can remember. If it isn't broken, then why fix it, right? 

The pre-poo

Pre-pooing is great for curly hair. But I have to admit, I don't always have time for it. If I do, a good slather of Trader Joe's olive oil all over my tresses just before washing does the trick for me.

The cleanser

I use Aussie Moist Shampoo from Target primarily when washing my hair. However, I like to switch it up here and there. The best alternative is TRESemme Naturals Shampoo.

The deep conditioner

I have been using the same deep conditioning cocktail for as long as I can remember. If it isn't broken, then why fix it, right? My deep conditioning mix consists of about a half of cup of conditioner, two tablespoons of olive oil and one tablespoon of honey.

I like to use Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner but if I don’t have any, Aussie Moist’s regular conditioner works great too. The honey attracts moisture to the hair and provides shine, while the olive oil provides shine and causes the hair to condition even deeper, it just works. I detangle once the mix is in and I leave it on my hair for at least 20 minutes under a hooded dryer.

Once per month I like to deep condition after washing by using avocado, pure organic olive oil and 100% honey from Trader Joe's. Let me tell you, avocado does some magical things to hair, at least it does to mine. It leaves me with shiny hair. I simply take one smashed avocado, please note, this needs to be blended, preferably in a Vitamix or Nutribullet because if it’s not, you will have little green fibers stuck all throughout your hair. Because of this, ripe avocados are important to use. After smashing the avocado, mix in two tablespoons of olive oil and one tablespoon of honey. Apply to your hair, place on a plastic cap and let it sit for at least 20 minutes. When done, I rinse and use my regular conditioner.

The sealant

Once the deep conditioning treatment is out of my hair, I'll seal with Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Sheen Sealing Nectar from Walmart. It sprays on, so you do not have to slather your hands or hair with oil in order to apply. This is especially helpful if my hair is already styled.
