|Summer Wash & Go Routine|
I have been receiving many messages on my summer hair routine recently. In my last post, I shared my summer hair essentials for keeping my hair clean, healthy and glowing. This week’s blog post is about my updated wash-and-go hair routine! If you want to see my last wash-and-go update, the post is here is more based for the winter season.
For those who are new to this blog, welcome and I am glad to see you are visiting me here! My typically wash and go routine tends to stick to moisturizing shampoos and conditioners that I can use to style my hair later. For the summer, I tend to stay away from those types of products because they weigh my hair down more.
Since I live in Atlanta, the summers here are hot, moist and sweaty. I need something that will continue to give my hair the moisturize it needs while being a lightweight product. So far, I have found the products my hair has been loving recently.
For a product line that my hair loves recently, it’s the Sashapure Healing Shampoo, Conditioner and Perfectly Defining Curl Cream*. I was given these products as part of my Summit 21 gift package, and I can say these products love my curls. After doing my research on these products, I loved what I found. They are affordable (range from $11.99 to $15.99 USD) and the main ingredient is Sacha Inchi oil in all of their products. Sacha Inchi oil (which is also found in the Cocokind Skincare ‘Golden Elixir’), is around a 3,000-,year-old superfood native to Peru and the oil from its seeds are rich in proteins, omega-3s, and vitamins. It is a dry oil, which means it is light, dries easily with quick absorbing and great for the skin & hair.
The Sashapurre Healing Shampoo* I found had a light smell, not heavyweight on my hair and gave my hair that “clean” feeling without my hair feeling dry and stripped from the moisture. It was slick enough for my hair to use as a detangler too. This product does foam up with water but not too much where it overwhelms the hair to make it dry. It is also claimed that it is color safe (I have never colored my hair) while being sulfate free. It does contain fragrance (parfum) in this shampoo.

For my conditioner, I have been loving the Sashapure Healing Conditioner* as well. It is thick enough to allow the product to be evenly spread throughout the hair while not being too much weight on my hair. It has a similar smell to the shampoo, light and not overwhelming. This conditioner was also easy to wash out compared to other conditioners I have tried in the past. It keeps my 3b curls nice and fluffy while giving it enough moisturize in this July heat. This product also contains fragrance (parfum), and it is color safe and sulfate free.

The last part of this gifted collection is the Sashapure Perfecting Curl Cream*. It is light enough where a little goes a long way in my wash-and-go. The cream spreads well in your hands and I would section my hair off into four ways to evenly distribute the product. This product helps contains some of the frizziness of my hair while it’s fighting the humidity. It also contains fragrance (parfum), and it is color safe and sulfate free.

This last product is not part of the Sashapure line but, one of my favorites to keep my curls intact. I use a styling gel more in the summer to keep my curls popping and the frizz is gone. My favorite one so far is the Mielle Organics Honey & Ginger Styling Gel*. I was gifted this product by my friends at Curlfluence in honor of taking over their Instagram for The World Natural Hair Show. This product spreads easily and it gives my curls the help it needs without the crunch gels give your hair. Also, this gel does not start breaking down in the middle of the day so, your hair won’t look like your scalp is shedding dandruff. This product does contain fragrance (parfum) as well.
Mielle Organics is black-owned & female-owned and killing the game at amazing products! I can’t wait to try more of their products.

Overall, these products are easy to use, which is one of my essential reasons why I love them so much.

Until then, here are some photos of how my hair is currently looking and growing with these products and my other summer hair essential products.
