Saturday 22/6/13 – A Co- wash for my Individual Jumbo Braids.

It’s been a week since I have installed my Individual Jumbo Braids. Yipee! It’s time for a Co- wash!!! I started by sectioning my hair into three parts as usual. Then I apply my conditioner- water mixture (3:1) to my roots first, I get as much conditioner saturated in it and I work my way to the shaft and ends. I let my conditioned braid/hair sit for 30 minutes and wash it off. I pat dry with my cotton fabric, put it in a bun and finally wrap the fabric around my bun for 20 minutes. This is to kick out at least 60% wetness from my hair. I wait some minutes and finally apply Castor oil – water mixture to my roots and Shea butter generously to my 80 – 90% dry braids. I follow up with a generous application of Dark and Lovely Moisturizing Lotion for extra moisture. The last thin
