Lately, there have been a few occasions where, due to schedule constraints, I've had to the extend time between washes. When wash day arrived, my hair felt like it needed to receive the benefits of both oil and conditioner. So I began a process that mirrored a daily moisturizing and sealing routine. On dry hair, I would apply my moisturizing conditioner, then layer it with one of my favorite plant oils, sealing the moisture in.
This process worked so well for me that I've decided to make it permanent (for now). Most recently, I had another one of those overdue wash days. My hair was feeling like it needed an intensive "pick-me-up" so I decided to pre-poo with my WEN 613 layered with some yummy avocado oil. Normally, when I deal with oils during pre-poo, I'm very generous in the application which causes me to get oil everywhere. This time would be no different if it weren't for the bright idea inspired by my 613 bottle.
- I'd use a pop-top cap. The kind the pops up on one side when I push down on it.
- Finding an empty conditioner or lotion bottle with a pump and pouring my oil into it.
Once the idea came, I had to make it work one way or another. This saves me a time (since I don't have to pick up and put down my bottle of oil after each section) and hassle (it's a much neater alternative to the way I was doing it before).
