How to Speed Up Your Child's Wash Day

By DiscoveringNatural

A typical full wash day for my girls usually goes like this:
30 mins Pre-poo
45 mins Detangling
15 mins Cleansing
30 mins Deep Conditioning
15 mins Post wash moisturizing
Varied time for styling (depends on how complex the style is)
Some might say that WOW!! That is too long. But for us, this is what works and it shows in the health of my girls' hair.
Now, how do I speed up this nearly 2 and a half hours ordeal? The secret is to use Multi-purpose Products. 
To learn more about what multi-purpose products are, watch the video below or click this link:
With the use of Multi-purpose products, I am able to combine some of the steps in our wash day routine to make shorter.
For example:
I will use one product that has the properties of a pre-poo, detangler and cleanser to wash the hair, This cuts down the  30 *pre-poo*, 45*detangling*, 15 *cleansing* time to just 30 mins. When you use a cleansing product that has great slip, detangling becomes a breeze. I then use a product that works as a deep conditioner and a leave in as my post wash care. That eliminates the 30 mins deep conditioning.
Does this really work? Yes! I have been doing it for over 2 months now and the girls' hair has not suffered. LOL!
Do you use Multi-Purpose products? How have they helped you?

    1. Thanks, Idy. To identify Multi-Purpose products, look at the Direction of usage for any of your products. If the product can be used for more than one thing, then it is a multipurpose product. One such is Shea Moisture Purification Masque which can be used as a Pre-poo and Scalp treatment.
