Wash day has always been a mission for me, the step by step tasks can be a bit much simply because I am sluggish when it comes to my hair, I like the simple life TBH. I wash my hair at least once every two weeks, I clean, deep condition, moisturise, etc. So I find it really tedious and lengthy process needless to say this step by step routine is actually beneficial to my hair.
So I thought it would be nice to share with you the go-to products that I use during my ‘thorough’ wash day. These products are my favourites at the moment (I don’t really change my hair products that often, so they will probably be my favourites for a while).
WASH DAY ROUTINE Step By Step Products
Ojon Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Treatment – this has been my number one go-to hair treatment. It is proven to improve the condition of dry, damaged hair after just 1 treatment by 64%! After only one treatment, the rich, velvety balm dramatically helps restore vibrant health and high-gloss shine to even the most damaged hair.
Hair is left feeling soft, silky and manageable. It is formulated without preservatives, water, artificial Colours and silicones. For effective results, I leave the treatment in overnight.
Body Shop Ginger Anti-Dandruff Shampoo – I don’t suffer from dandruff but get itchy scalp sometimes. This shampoo helps a lot! It helps soothe my scalp and leave it feeling refreshed.
Macadamia Ultra Rich Moisture Masque – Gold magic in a jar! It infuses hair with an instant boost. This hair masque provides nourishment to dry, damaged hair and strengthens individual hair strands to help repair and defend against future damage. It works like magic, literally from the first use. Leaving hair feeling soft, healthy and hydrated.
After shampooing, I apply a generous amount to damp hair and comb through. Leaving on for 5-10mins (I use heat to intensify treatment), I use this twice a month depending on stress I’ve put my hair through.
Curlformer Softhood + Lee Stafford Blow-dry faster and nourish dryer – with Macadamia Ultra Rich Moisture Masque still in my hair I wear my treatment cap and the place my Curlformer Softhood on with my hair dry on a low heat for 5-10mins to intensify and quicken the conditioning process. Curlformer Soft hood is great for at-home hair treatments, Just apply to damp hair, cover with treatment cap, and place the SoftHood over the top.
Switch on the dryer to a comfortable setting (lowest setting preferably) and leave on according to the instructed time before rinsing hair out. Its design features for optimum performance includes larger hood capacity and maximum ventilation for faster and even heat distribution, and It’s easy to use with an adjustable chin strap and drawstring.
Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor oil Strengthen & Restore Leave-in Conditioner – this is one of my favourite leave-in conditioners, it does not leave the hair sticky nor greasy, and it smells AMAZING! It leaves the hair soft and helps detangle hair for a natural comb through. I apply a generous amount to towel-dried hair. Working the product from roots to end, then I comb through to distribute evenly.
Charlotte Mensah Manketti Hair Oil – for extra hydration on my scalp, I massage into my scalp with my fingertips. I was introduced to this brand earlier this year, and I’ve loved it ever since. Charlotte Mensah Manketti hair oil is part of Mankatti oil Hair range by Award-winning hairstylist Charlotte Mensah. A “saviour for dull, dehydrated hair”, this concentrated Manketti Oil blend instantly improves the appearance of your hair. Adding shine, taming frizz and caring for your scalp.

Its helps the hair to grow strong and healthy. It also helps eliminate flakes, dandruff and itching. My hair has grown reasonably in the past 7months. With regular usage, it does not leave my hair super greasy but adds shine and helps tame frizzies.
