Video: Washing My Locs in 5 min.



This video demonstrates how I wash my hair in 5 minutes, whether i'm in the shower or outdoors using a garden hose. I filmed outdoors for a better visual. Basically I wet my locs, shampoo them, rinse then towel dry and go! I use a microfiber towel to dry my hair because it soaks up water like a sponge and quickly dries your hair.

The shampoo I used in this video isn't as sudsy and I don't use it that often, so I kept using more. I have A LOT of hair and I tried the shampoo + water bottle spray before, but it doesn't work for me. I have another shampoo that doesn't require so much use, but I use this one when I need to do a major wash.

I never thought seeing someone wash their hair outside would make me smile. I've done it a few times since being locked, and it feels wonderful. Great vid, and thanks for blogging your experience and advice for us!

Nice video, I hope you don't mind but I posted it in my Facebook Natural Hair Page. I do have one question, where can I purchase the Microfiber towels? As my hair gets longer it takes longer to air dry and I rarely use heat on my hair to dry it unless I have to so the towel would be perfect. Thanks for all of the great information. Also, are you on Facebook, I would like to add you as a friend if you are?

@Yahvinah: Trust me, the faster the better sometimes!

@Anon: Anytime!

@Queenli: Thanks!

@TKT: You know what? I did this on a whim just because I thought it was the perfect opportunity.

@Abena: OMG! You did? Lol! I'll have to check it out then. I added you as a friend btw. You can purchase a Microfiber towel at any bath and body / bed, bath & beyond shop, online or I think most places now. You'll have to search though.

what were you using? aside from your regular stuff?

@Naturigurl: This one was Burt's Bee shampoo. It's a little drying, very watery, and makes my scalp flare up sometimes, but it removes residue. I think i'll stop using it for a while and go back to my selsun blue.

Loved it! That made me want to go outside in the AZ sun and wash my hair too! Only thing is I set my locs this weekend and my curls are fierce! Power wash will have to wait.

Man, I would do that if I wasn't scared of the wildlife in my garden. It looks soooo refreshing, but I'll just use the shower! haha
