Updated Fast Wash Day Routine
1. Oil pre poo (either overnight or just before washing hair)2. Shampoo or Cowash (currently cowashing up to 2 weeks which is the point of tolerance to build up that I have)
3. Deep Condition: Leave on from 7 min-20 min with or without heat (generally a warm towel).4. Detangle: I use a tangle teezer brush and so far I love it! I will review each product individually in a separate post maybe if you like 🙂
5. Rinse Out conditioner6. Leave in: Since I am currently doing a “silicone free challenge” these are the leave in conditioners I am using at the moment.
7. Diffuse, style or air dry and you are done!
My goal of having a simplified routine that works for me has been completed, detangling more than once during the wash day at least for me is unnecessary (and I only use my hair as a wash and go so hello tangles but it is still ok).
I normally wash my hair with shampoo every week and cowash in between as needed.
I stopped using shampoo about 2 weeks ago in order to properly try the effects of the very hyped Decadence line by Devacurl And they live up to the hype. Also I have only cowashed exclusively as part of my cowash silicon free challenge, but it is time to use shampoo again since I noticed some build up today and I will probably go back to weekly/biweekly usage of shampoo, still that does not change my preference for a shorter wash day.
