I need a vacation!

And I'm not kidding. I'm so tired, I truly don't know what to do with myself. Nor do I know what to do with my hair, it's so sad. And right now the summer heat is NOT helping. 

Since I've done nothing cute or exciting, I'll just quickly run through my last wash day, which was on Sunday. 
I woke up feeling like doing NOTHING at all. I've got mono at the moment, and am perpetually tired, so when I decided that I need to wash my hair I simply jumped in the shower, skipping the pre-poo step. I washed my hair with ORS Creamy Aloe shampoo as I felt that it would help with my hair's porosity and since I wanted my hair to feel close to squeaky clean. It sure as hell did that job! What I also love about this shampoo is that although my hair felt almost stripped, it didn't feel dry or hard or tangled. I then used the last bit of my Pantene Sleek and Smooth Conditioner as instant conditioner and then detangled, which was a breeze. After I rinsed and got out of the shower I wrapped an old T-shirt around my hair for about ten minutes till it was more damp than wet and then applied a generous amount of ORS Replenishing Conditioner to deep condition my hair. I covered it with a plastic shower cap and a cotton scarf to trap as much heat as possible while the conditioner did its job. At this stage I felt so tired, I put on my PJ's and got into bed, deep conditioning overnight. The next morning when I rinsed my hair it felt like BUTTER. I applied my normal leave in's (Avon 3D Rescue and Bone Strait) and proceeded to roller set. Due to lack of time I couldn't have my hair air dry in the rollers and thus blasted it with the cool air setting on my blow dryer. Once dry, I removed the rollers and my hair felt so freaking smooth and soft and bouncy. Once again due to fatigue and lack of time I simply pulled it into a little ponytail and then out the door I went. 

Since then my hair has stayed in the ponytail holder (no metal, very soft) and I simply moisturized and sealed every night using my usual moisture spritz and coconut oil. Today my hair still feels ridiculously soft, but a little weighted down. since I'm only about 3 weeks post, so I might do a quick wash tonight as I LOVE the feeling of clean hair. If the laziness  fatigue overwhelms me though, I might leave the washing, will just have to wait and see. 

And there you go darlings. A very quick wash day update.
