My hair, where I started out [July 2007] to where I am now, almost 4 years later.
I'm happy to have made it this far and can't wait for what the future hold!
I've FINALLY gotten a routine down and I'm loving it.
It's pretty low maintenance, but mostly because my hair is covered by wigs most of the time [will explain in a blog post].
My regimen has taken me all of those 4 years, countless hours watching youtube videos and reading blogs to find, mold and tweak to my liking. Its likely to change, but only a little depending on hair styles and products I use. The more I learn the more eager I am to try things out.
But here goes...
*I'll try and post pictures of each step next wash day*
I wash once a week, usaually on a Saturday or Sunday.
I apply a deep conditioning mix into my water dampened hair [no particular measurements]
*both of these conditioners I'm only using till the bottles are empty...the trials of a product junkie*
- VO5 Passion Fruit Smoothie conditioner
- Balsam and Protien conditioner
- Olive oil or Africa's Best Herbal oil
- Aloe Vera juice
- Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deep Moisturizing Shampoo & conditioner.
I rinse out the conditioner [deep conditioning mix] and then apply the shampoo to my roots and message into my scalp and rinse out with cool water letting the lather run down my hair shaft.
I follow up with the conditioner, which I apply to each section of my hair, scalp and root. Rinse out with cool water.
Once out of the shower I dry my hair [plopping method] with an old t-shirt, then I add my leave in conditioner and sealant
- Oyin's Honey Hemp Conditioner
- Kimmaytube's leave in conditioner mix
- Olive oil
- Africa's Best Herbal oil
- Coconut oil
- Caster oil
During the week I spritz my hair with a water, conditioner and Aloe Vera [or Greg Juice] mix and seal with an oil.
Hope that helps
