Wash Day Chronicles: Multani Mitti and Neem

My wash days have recently become uneventful as a result of my loose twists. I’ve become one of those naturals that don’t want to deal with their hair every week. Now it’s a bi-weekly. In fact, I rush over my wash days every two weeks just to put my hair back in twists at the same time.

Anyways, after going back and forth, I’ve settled on a method: clays and powders for cleansing and deep conditioners for deep conditioning when the clay dries out my hair. This has been working because it saves time and energy for more productive things. It also helps me use up the Ayurvedic powders in my stash.

So, this week I settled on Multani Mitti and Neem at the last minute. It turned out a bit runny and I needed to thicken it so I used some neem.

Here’s how it went down.

– There was electricity so I did a hot oil treatment with Dabur Vatika Garlic Hair Oil for about an hour plus under my thermal cap.

– Next, I mixed
5-6 tsps of Multani Mitti
2 tsps of Neem
5 tsps of Honey
2 tsps of Apple Cider Vinegar
2 tsps of Dabur Vatika Garlic Hair Oil

– Then I applied the mixture on my hair like that without washing out the oil and left it for about an hour. The longer it stays, the harder it is to wash out.

– After an hour, I rinsed out all of the junk and cowashed with Vo5 Moisturizing Conditioner to completely get rid of every trace of clay and also to add a bit more moisture. Nothing like too much moisture.

– By the time I was done, my hair was soft, luscious and yummy! I think this is as a result of the hot oil treatments I did previously.

– Afterwards, I moisturized using the LOC method – Cantu Shea butter Repair cream, oil mix and whipped hair butter.

– Then I put my hair in 4 braids to stretch for a bun.

Wash day in 2 hours! That’s more like it!
