Curious about how often I do what & when? Well, here you go! My hair diary. This is what I do.
You can click on the event name (ie “Dry Shampoo” or “Argan Oil”) to get details about the process I used.
I do brush my hair everyday with a regular hairbrush from a drug store. Other than that, everything I do to my hair is listed in this calender.
Bentonite clay mask:
- Equal parts apple cider vinegar and bentonite clay (I did about 1/4 cup each which was enough for my face and my hair) with 3 drops of ylang ylang essential oil
- Left on for about 30 minutes
- Rinsed out & let air dry
Before I went no poo, I did not like bentonite clay for my hair. It always left my hair stiff and it felt dirty. Bentonite clay does detox your hair, so I think my hair was detoxing. Now I love it!
I did a coconut oil hair mask. I used about 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and 2 drops each of ylang ylang & cedarwood essential oils. Because I have low porosity hair, I wrapped my hair with a hot towel heated in my clothes dryer. I reheated the towel 3 times. I left the coconut oil in my hair for about 45 minutes. I washed my hair with an egg wash. I added about 1 tablespoon of honey to the egg. See more about coconut oil hair masks here. See more about egg washes here.
I washed my hair with rye flour and some essential oils (about 2 tablespoons rye flour, 2 drops each of ylang ylang & cedarwood essential oils, and a couple tablespoons of water to form a paste). Read more about rye flour here. After my hair air dried, I scritched & preened with a boar bristle brush. See details on how to do that here.
