Wash day: my new heat cap & loose waves style

The Eco styled gel and hair clamps are for a friend. All products pictured (processing caps and deep conditioning cap) we're purchased from Natural hair Products shop ng.

Hey ladies! I finally got to purchase a deep conditioning cap. Yes I haven't had one since the beginning of my hhj. I however have improvised using other means like; 

*Deep conditioning using body heat where I'll put on a shower cap or two shower caps and sometimes an extra head warmer just to create and trap the heat. I do  this for not less than an hour.

*Using my blow dryer. i just Put on a small plastic bag or a shower cap ...then a bigger plastic bag where I create a hole and insert the nozzle of my blow dryer. 

Thats it....the two ways I've been deep conditioning my hair. Now that I've got this steaming cap my wash days will be cut in half because all I need is 30 mins of Deep conditioning and I proceed to the next step. 

For this washday I,
(1) prepooed with Olive oil And finger detangled.

(2) shampooed with The mane choice Easy on the curls shampoo.

(3) Deep conditioned with the last of my mix - ORS + Elasta qp penetrating conditioner + avocado oil. I never really got the full benefit of this mix till I used it with heat from my deep conditioning cap this washday.  My hair felt like butter. Very easy to was just amazing. Felt like the avocado oil really sank deep into my hair shaft. #happydance  

for styling i sprayed my hair with lotta body setting lotion, divided my hair into four sections, detangled well   with a wide tooth comb and then set my hair on jumbo rollers. I took out all the rollers in 10mins time (this wasn't the initial plan but I'll tell you why I took out the rollers in another post). I blow dried  each of the sections and set my hair on 6 Bantu knots. My hair was 90% dry when I set the knots and I twisted the section of hair first before knotting. 

I had a party to attend later that day so I put it in a protective style. 

How does it look?
