Wash Day 4/29/2012

So I had a much needed, long awaited wash day after about 4, maybe 5 weeks?

1.) I shampooed with Peppermint Castile Soap[nice tingle];
2.) Coffee rinsed[caffeine found to reduce shedding]
3.) Applied Suave Professionals Humectant Conditioner & steamed for two hours;
3.) Rinsed, blow dried with IC Fantasis heat protector and PCJ kids moisturizer
4.) Braided for a braid out.

Coffee Rinse. How I do it, real Simple.

 1.) One tbsp coffee grounds;

2.) About 3 or 4 ounces hot water

3.) Let it steep for a few minutes then strain

4.) Then add some cool water to stretch it and make it enough to rinse your hair with.
5.) When rinsing you can opt to rinse straight from the bowl or put the coffee rinse on a spray bottle and spritz your scalp.
6.) Apply conditioner and proceed with deep condition.

I also did a little conditioner concoction.

1.) One tbsp Coconut Oil
2.) One tbsp Olive Oil
3.) Three tbsp Aloe Vera Juice
4.) Large goop of conditioner
5.) Mix well & apply.
6.) Let's see how this turns out.


  1. I've wondered about doing a coffee rinse. Wondering how it compares to a black tea rinse (if you've done one)???

  2. Jenijen, this is the first time in about maybe 3 or 4 years since I've done this but from what I remember they worked the same for me. The black tea rinse was less messy though because it's in a bag.
