Here's what I did on my natural hair wash day to prep for my first COLOUR appointment

To cleanse my hair, I used Shea Moisture's Jamaican Black Castor Oil. Before applying the shampoo to my hair, I thoroughly saturated my hair with water in the shower and started lightly finger detangling my hair. I then applied the shampoo, working it in my scalp first with a gentle massage and then smoothed it down to my ends. I also continued finger detangling and removed shed hair during this process. I separated my hair into 6 sections for better manageability and lathered and rinsed twice for a really thorough cleansing.


After rinsing the shampoo out of my hair, I then coated my hair with conditioner from root to tip while finger detangling in sections. After finger detangling, I then detangled with my Evolve detangling brush. It was my first time using it, and I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to use in the shower! It's a keeper for me.evolve detangling brushOnce all my sections were detangled, I then twisted each section and then did a deep condition treatment with my Hair Therapy Wrap after placing a plastic cap on my head. I usually let the conditioner sit for about 20 min. under my heated cap.
