As with most natural-haired ladies, wash day is an all day event in my home. This is literally true to the point where I can only wash my hair when I have a full day off work.
When I first started going natural, on wash days I usually ended up doing more harm than good. I really had no clue what I was doing when it came to washing my natural hair, and if you recall from Part 2 of my Hair Journey, I never even washed my own hair until my mid-teens.
So newly natural, I would hop in the shower and scrub shampoo into my hair willy-nilly. Then, because the washing process had thoroughly tangled my natural hair, I would spend hours upon hours combing through the mess, causing breakage the whole way through.
