This week I have been fooling with my hair more than usual. I scored some Shea Moisture products from the BOGO sale at CVS on Tuesday. Since I was so excited about that, I tried to do a wash and go with Shea Moisture’s Coconut and Hibiscus line on Wednesday. I washed with the shampoo and then applied the Curl & Style Milk and then the Curling Souffle. I was less than pleased. My hair felt more greasy than anything and my clothes were evidence of my greasy feeling. I actually had to keep a towel near me to keep wiping oil off of my face.
I went to Shea Moisture’s Facebook page and read that the Curling Souffle should be applied to hair with NO other products. (NO LEAVE IN CONDITIONER).
I don’t know how my hair will act with no leave in. I love leave-in’s for added moisture. I decided I would try again with the Curling Souffle for a wash n go according to Shea Moisture’s directions. I am a little peeved that the jar of the Souffle does not really tell you how to use it.
Thursday rolled around and I couldn’t take the oily feeling any longer so after my 5 mile run, I rinsed my hair. I was so tired that I didn’t want to go through the wash and go routine.
So I did this:
A Simple Pony. Then, to add more manipulation to the mix, I washed AGAIN this morning after running 3 miles. I used the same Shea Moisture Shampoo (from above) so I could do the wash and go again.
And guess what? I was too lazy to do that, too (and still a bit apprehensive about the greasy feeling) so I applied L’Oreal EverCreme conditioner as my deep conditioner. It is now 10:27pm CST and it is still in my hair. (Saturday is my normal hair day. See my routine above).
I had a fun day with my girls and I am tired. I actually planned to put curlformers in my hair today. (No dice).
Tomorrow after my run, I will rinse the L’Oreal out and apply my gel for a wash and go for church (if I feel up to it). If not, it will be in a pony for church, too. I will revisit the Shea Moisture wash and go at another time. I will make sure to post pics this the next time around.
