Wash Day + Rollerset 1

My Wash Day: (1) I decided randomly to do a semi hot oil treatment.  I used a mixture of castor oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, and olive oil to my scalp and new growth only, and massaged it in in.  I then put it in a loose bun, put a plastic cap on, and wrapped my satin cap around that overnight. (2) The next morning I deep conditioned with a mix of ORS Replenishing Pak, jojoba oil, castor oil, coconut oil, and vegetable glycerin for 2.5 hours.  I wanted to do this under a dryer for 1 hour, but my dryer is broken.  So now I’m on the market for a new dryer.  (3) Shampooed with Silk Elements Luxury Moisturizing Shampoo.  (4) Applied Aussie 3 Minute Miracle for about 3-5 minutes. (5) Applied Roux Porosity Control for about 1 minute then rinsed.

I decided to practice a rollerset before the challenge began. I also needed a starting photo for the challenge, so I figured I would kill two birds with one stone.

Results:  The overnight hot oil treatment made it a lot easier to detangle my hair before I deep conditioned.  Deep conditioning went smoothly, though I kinda lost track of the time as I was doing it.  I also forgot how much I loved the smell of ORS Replenishing Pak.  After I rinsed out the deep conditioner my hair had so much slip, it was amazing.  The Silk Elements shampoo is ok.  It’s not my favorite, but I couldn’t find my Neutrogena Cream Lather, so I had to settle.  The Aussie 3 Minute Miracle did not impress me at all.  My hair has definitely felt a lot more moisturized with different conditioners.  I’ll post a review later, after I’ve used it a few more times, but right now it’s not looking too good.  The Roux Porosity Control I have mixed feelings for.  I didn’t see any difference in the porosity of my hair, but I’m pretty sure I left it on a minute too long.  Next time I’ll keep it in for much shorter and see how that goes.  I tried out the Silken Child Detangler, too.  The first thing I noticed was the smell.  I hated it.  It smelled like fake grape flavor,, which I dislike immensely.  I think your like of the smell depends on your preference, though.  I got used to it eventually, and it was really good at detangling.  I need so much more practice in rollersetting.  I’m so rusty at it.  By the time I sat down to start rolling, my hair was 50% dry, so I had to re-wet it multiple times.  I also realized I need new rollers.  the ones I have now have those small spikes/ridges on them, and I’m scared there just going to break/damage my hair more.   I’ll have to stop by Target and pick some up soon.  The rollerset itself came out horrible.  It took forever to dry without a dryer, and as it was drying I could see it becoming frizzy.  I took it out after 5 hours, and it was still slightly wet.  When I took them out, my hair was just a fluffy mess.  I’m going to rollerset every other week, and hopefully I get better at it.
