Hello Everyone, I’ve been meaning to post something like this for ages so here it is – a brief video showing how I style my hair on wash days.
The steps I take before I get to this point are pretty simple:
1. Co-wash hair. Just now I am using Tresemme Naturals Silicone Free Conditioner
3. I rinse the treatment and apply conditioner. I pretty much always use Aubrey Organics Honey Suckle Rose conditioner. I apply, de-tangle using my fingers or a wide toothed comb starting at the ends and working my way up to my scalp. I leave this on while I finish showering etc.
4. I rinse this out using COOL water as it helps to seal the cuticle and tame frizz. I normally leave a little in the ends – just what’s left after rinsing.
5. Next I squeeze out most of the water but leave my hair pretty wet and this is when I apply my products. The video starts from this point.
If you’re not sure what ‘Plopping’ is it is explained in this post here.
I used to smooth my products through my hair and then go straight to plopping but since I have taken the time to individually smooth each curl like in the video I get much better curly definition and I can get MUCH more days out of my hair. I generally get 3-4 days wear out of my hair after a wash day and to me that it well worth taking the extra time to smooth those individual curls! If your short of time however, plopping after applying your products can be a good alternative
