Wash Day, Step by Step

The last time I did Mayci’s hair, because of how our schedule worked out that weekend, we split the work into three days. The first day I took out her braids. The second day I washed her hair.

We have a Shampoo Time mat in order to wash her hair in the sink. I don’t know why I waited so long to get this thing. It’s so helpful.

The first shampoo.

I shampoo her hair twice. I learned to do this from Kanisha at Tutus and Tennis Shoes. (I also shampoo my own hair twice now… changed my life, man.)

And the conditioner! All together it takes 10-15 minutes to shampoo and condition her very, very thick hair.

Isn’t she the cutest?

I quickly section her hair into halves and then each half into thirds. Then I put liquid (detangler) and cream in her hair and brush all the tangles out. She ends up with the most amazing ringlets.

Look at all that gorgeous, healthy hair!

The secret of our hair success is The Magic Three from Tutus and Tennis Shoes. When Mayci arrived her hair was dry and brittle, constantly breaking. A few months of using this stuff and her hair has been healthy ever since.

Since I washed her hair on Friday and was going to unable to style it until Monday, Mayci asked if I would do Anna braids.

Beautiful young lady!
