(5) Applied oil mix (Grapeseed Oil, JBCO, Olive Oil, Tea Tree Oil) to scalp and massaged in.
(6) Sealed length of hair with Grapeseed Oil and air dried my hair.

My usual wash days are Sundays, but my scalp has been incredibly itchy and feeling weird, so I felt a wash was necessary.  It’s been getting really hot around here, so I decided to give my hair a nice moisture boost with a pre-poo.

I ‘m loving my new shampoo, and will be doing a review soon, so keep an eye out for it.

I mix my deep conditioner with various oils and things, depending on what I have laying around.  This time I used grapeseed oil, JBCO, olive oil, tea tree oil, Roux Porosity Control, and I used up the last of my carrot oil.  It made my hair feel extremely soft and moisturized, and I kept running my hands trough my hair like crazy.

My deep conditioning actually lasted a lot longer than I originally planned.  I fell asleep after an hour, and totally forgot about it.  Oh well.  It’s hot enough here that I don’t feel bad about not using heat while I deep condition.  The natural heat was hot enough that I was sweating from doing nothing inside.  I was happy for my hair, but hated it in general.  The heat makes me sleepy and lazy, hence the long nap.

My hair has been drying so much better now that I’ve had a trim.  I think I cut off most of my over processed hair from last year, so now it dries evenly and my cuticle lays down much smoother.  I love it, and it’s making air drying a much more enjoyable experience.

I just purchased the grapeseed oil last week and as you can see, I’ve been trying it out all over the place.  I wanted to pick up avocado oil, but it was $10 more for the same size as the grapeseed oil.  I grabbed the cheaper one instead.  I’ll do a post talking about the benefits of this oil, too, and the ways I enjoy using it for my hair.
