    Cool Do you plan 'hair down' days?

    In one of the threads I was reading through, someone (I'd give you credit if I remembered who you were!) posted that they plan for the days they are going to wear their hair down. I thought this was an excellent idea, especially since my hair wouldn't look so great if I did everything the same. I wear it up and oiled in such a way that it would not hang nicely, and I suspect a different poo and condish would also make it hang differently, although what I use regularly is perfect for what I do with my hair regularly. I suppose I would plan to wear a satin top too. My hair does tangle and I am pondering whether a spray would keep it in place better to alleviate tangling. hmmm...
    Anything different you would do for a 'hair down' day?

    I do! I leave my conditioner from CO in extra long and scrub my scalp extra vigorously. I also do an ACV rinse. These things give my hair a lot of volume and movement!

    I plan up and down days! Up and down everything! Even sleeping. It's just part of taking good care of your hair.

    I plan 'down' days, and wash days. It's just easier for me that way. On 'down' days I braid right to the ends the night before so I have even-looking braidwaves (I do have a bit of natural wave, but it's very irregular), and a 'down' day for me is usually the day directly after washing, since that's when my scalp frizzies calm down a bit, but before my oily roots get going.

    A little - I always have it co-ed, dried and lightly oiled before so it's soft and shiny and I take along a hair stick/clip in my bag in case it gets in the way.
    I tend to spray it very lightly with hairspray and comb it through to stop flyaways (yes, I know it's bad but I only leave it down a few times a year).

    I like to wear my hair down the day that I wash it because that's when wave/curl is best. So I wash it on days that I can leave it down with a minimum of bother.

    I plan my 'down' days according to the weather. If there is any moisture in the hair, my hair stays UP.
    Embraced my wurls/curls! S&C, leave-ins, jojoba, & a whole lot of silicone! No heat. Plopping. Protein treatment once a month.

    My best day is the day after I wash so if I'm going to have my hair down for a special occasion I try to wash it the day before. I usually use a little heavier conditioner or an SMT too, to bring out the shine. I also try not to put it up or to use only styles that don't create waves to show off my hair's natural super-straightness.

    But it's so rare that I leave my hair down outside the house anymore. It's not like a "down day" is part of my weekly routine and I'm always thinking ahead this much. Usually I braid it or bun it to go out of the house and let it down when I'm inside not doing anything (sometimes not even then) braid/bun waves and all. I have enough on my hands just integrating my wash schedule with my work schedule..."okay I'm off on Tuesday and it won't really need washing by then but if I don't my next chance will be on Saturday and that's WAY too long so I guess I'll wash on Tuesday anyway..."

    Horrid lighting and resolution...but even still I can see 2" growth and lots more shine!
