Beginner's Series 4: Prep for Wash Day
This may sound silly but it’s even sillier when you want to get started and you’re not sure how to begin. Then you realise you’re missing the conditioner you wanted to use. Now you have to go shopping instead of washing your hair. You roll your eyes, but it happens.
To prepare, make a list of the steps you want to go through on wash day depending on what your hair needs. Once you know exactly what you want to do, make sure you have the products you’ll need.
These steps differ for each person and their goals for their hair. Some people will pre-poo as step one. Some people don’t use shampoo but prefer to co-wash only. Some will do a protein treatment first. How you wash your hair on “wash day” will depend on what you want to achieve.
So with that said, don’t let the term “wash day” scare you into thinking that natural hair is hard work. Everything becomes a little easier with time and experience. Try to enjoy the process because, in the end, you will not only love doing your hair, you’ll be amazed at what it can do when it’s healthy.
Have a happy wash day!
