Ever since getting my haircut at Valerie Signature Salon, I’ve been pushing off washing it because I was nervous I’d ruin my perfectly beautiful new fro! But alas, I could no longer pretend like my hair was dirty because it had reached the point where brushing up against it released a swarm of particles – probably dust from laying down at the gym while stretching or doing ab exercises. Anyway, there’s nothing to make you more excited about wash day then some new products, and luckily for me I received some extra newness from CurlKit – the Dark and Lovely Moisture LOC line!
Before I show you guys how I washed my hair, let me quickly describe my non-routine the past few weeks. I would twist my hair every few nights, then my hair would shrink because I’d go to the gym, then I’d set it in braids at night. The resulting braidout would shrink and shrink and shrink for the next couple days, and by the end of the week, I would just let it be a mini fro. Now when my hair was longer, it would become an updo and a puff, but now? Just a fro. But onto the wash process!
I deep conditioned with coconut oil during the day before washing at night
It took me an hour from start to finish to wash, and another 45 minutes to twist, whereas before it would take about 2 hours to detangle, deep condition, and wash alone.
It is not completely easy, but it is easier than washing and maintaining my longer hair.

I just thought of a cute cornrow-up-into-a-puff style you could rock! I’ve got more ideas for your hair than my own! LOL!
I should try a rod set but I’m nervous about how long it would take! I’m not as keen on the Mohawk because the back is so short. I can flat twist up the back in small sections then rock a puff in the front though!
Have you tried a frohawk yet? I think that would be cute. If you’re good at cornrowing, you could cornrow the sides up into the “hawk”. I’d love to see how you’d look with a rod set on that length!
