Hey Afro frenzies! In my latest post I have talked about how much of a two-part wash day fan I am. This post will just give you a little more insight as to why I have become such a fan.
Time is a huge factor. Time is one of the biggest reasons why a two-part wash day would come into play in my book. If your short on time you can prepoo shampoo or co-wash and then deep condition else where.
It’s nothing for me to throw my hair in a bun or a braid. As long as my hair is getting deep conditioned I could care less where it happens.
I will deep condition at work, school, church, etc. Essentially the list of places that I have deep conditioned are infinite and I’m totally okay with that.
The other reason is to avoid a rushing. I would rather put a pin in it then attempt to rush through it. When you rush you tend to snatch at your hair, your less focused on being gentle and kind to your hair and more on getting the job done and in the long run your hair suffers.
If I’m short on time or just not feeling wash day I will opt for a two-part it then destroy my hair. Attempting to power through it is never a good motto when it comes to wash-day. I also have another head to think about. When it comes to his locks it’s usually not intentional.
Although I’m a huge fan of the two-part wash day I try to avoid doing a two-part wash-day on locks. I’m not saying that it doesn’t happen but washing and waiting to retwist locks can cause them to tangle and that’s a hassle. I can’t!
But on those occasions when I do what I recommend is to definitely start from front to back. You can kinda hide the locks that have not been twisted. You can’t hide anything if you start from back to front ya dig.
For the natural on the go I would definitely suggest a two-part wash-day. It can really lessen the stress of fitting in the perfect wash-day complete with Netflix and deep conditioning.
Let me know in the comments how you get through wash-day with a busy schedule. I would love to hear from you. Remember, be happy, be curly, be you, and you will never fail!
