I do all I can to make wash day in this house something positive and uncomplicated. Yes, afro-textured hair can be very fragile and time consuming to care for. But that doesn’t make it a bad thing or something to be dreaded.
Like most of you, I’m a very busy mom who doesn’t have a lot of time to spare. For me, the simpler the routine, the better. Maybe I can get a little more fancy with this process in a couple of years when the kiddos are a bit older and I have a few more minutes on my hands. (Ha… who am I kidding.) Just give me a good moisturizing conditioner, detangler, and hair oil. Those are my preferred basics. Oh! And an awesome low or no suds shampoo is a plus. The only other thing I now require, is for it to contain only non-toxic ingredients that won’t aggravate my daughter’s skin. That’s not too much to ask for, is it?
With so many products on the market to choose from (believe me… I’ve used my share over the years) I recently decided to try some from my favorite wellness company. Yes, Young Living hair care products have awesome ingredients. But, how do they fare on our hair texture? I have already been using one of their ultra moisturizing ointments in Baby Girl’s hair. But what about the shampoos and conditioners? And just how good is the new Mirah Lustrous Hair Oil that came out this past summer?
A few other Young Living customers in the natural community recommended I start with the Copaiba Vanilla Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner and go from there. In my previous post, How to Make A Detangling Spray For Natural Hair, find out how I made the lovely moisturizing detangling spray I use in the video that also doubles as a leave-in, and what my current thoughts are on the Mirah hair oil.
Well, here’s a glimpse of our simplified Wash Day routine. What does your wash day look like for you and your little ones? Do you have any tips to share? Let me know.
