on my journey to healthy relaxed hair in jamaica

Updated Hair Regimen

Howdy HHJ loves hope all is going well this post is about my current hair regimen I just read the other one I had up and it has changed immensely I love having a blog it’s my very own hair diary and I get to help others in the process. S/O to those following my blog I really love you guys for following my blog you guys keep me inspired. So my current regimen is this.

  • I pre poo with my oil combo as you guys already know before every wash unless I’m just deep conditioning on dry hair or doing a co wash. I wash my hair every two weeks and when I’m stretching I still keep that timetable of washing my hair every 2 weeks I just co wash in between so my new growth doesn’t get the best of me. So when I reach about 7 weeks post I add co washing and D/C on dry hair to my regimen.
  • I air dry my hair or roller set it really depends on whether or not I can be bothered with my hooded dryer in my life.
  • I moisturize and seal my hair every night with Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Repair Creme and seal with my oil combo and I oil my scalp with castor oil every 2-3 days. I finger comb and lightly detangle every time I moisturize and seal. The reason I do this is because I tried waiting till wash day to detangle my hair and mane oh mane oh mane did my hair give me hell to detangle. I try not to manipulate my hair as much but I also try not to keep too much shed hair.
  • Randoms I massage my scalp every chance I get, I try to add new things to my hair once in awhile when my curiosity gets the best of me.
  • Heat- I do use my flat iron every now and again I was never addicted to using heat so it’s not hard to stay away from heat. I use my hooded drier whenever I don’t feel like air drying my hair and I use my blow dryer whenever but I’m not heat obsessed and I don’t think heat affects my hair because if I do use it I keep my hair wrapped so it stays straight.

I think I have covered everything oh I do D/C with heat sometimes or I just let my body heat do the job. That’s all for now I am planning on going on a little mini protective styling challenge from about November to about February what I’m trying to figure out is this I really don’t like washing my hair in braids I just really don’t so I’m just trying to figure out how to keep my scalp clean and healthy w/o washing it till before I take it out but I’m looking at some havana twists for the rest of the year and then some other style till February when I decide to relax again or maybe I’ll stretch till March. So i’ll track my progress this time a before and after picture to see if long term protective styling works for me.
