I rinsed the oil from my hair in the shower and co-washed with Carol's Daughter Hair Milk Cleansing Conditioner.
 Next, I did a coffee rinse.
 After squeezing the excess liquid from my hair, I wrapped my hair in a towel for 30 minutes.
 I deep conditioned with SheScentIt Curl Moist Conditioner. To help boost the effectiveness of the conditioner, I used my Gold N' Hot conditioning cap for an hour. I've had that cap since 2009 and it still works like a charm.
While applying the conditioner to my hair, I just couldn't take the über thin ends at my nape so I dug my shears out from under the bag of peas in freezer (which is where I keep them to stop me from cutting my hair) and let out my scissor happy self. It felt GREAT to get rid of those ends. They were so darn thin compared to the rest of my hair. For a look at those ends, check out this post: Transitioning Talk: Okay... So I Cut A Little

 The next morning I rinsed the conditioner from my hair and sprayed my hair and scalp with apple cider vinegar + water. Then,  I t-shirt dried for an hour and then  finished up by applying Kurlee Belle Thirsty Kurls Leave-In + Organix Shea Butter Liquid Glass Serum, detangled, and stretched my hair via the tension method with cold air. I was a little worried I wouldn't be able to camouflage my shorter nape with the rest of my hair but stretching my hair helped tons.
I'll forever sing the praises of the tension method! It helps me stretch my hair without use of direct heat (I use cold air), which this far in the transitioning game is cause for celebration *busts out in the electric slide*
After detangling + drying — well nearly drying my hair... I blow dry to about 80-90% dry and then finish up air drying in a bun overnight. Once I'd detangled and stretched my hair, I applied aloe vera gel to my edges and covered my hair with a silk scarf after loosely bunning my hair.
The next morning I finger combed my hair into a low ponytail.
