i don't have a set schedule when i do my washings anymore. at first i did, but it had to change. i was conditioner washing (co-washing) on thursdays with a pre-poo (leave a product in for added moisture) and shampoo washing on the weekends. but i noticed that my hair was really weak. i mean, extremely weak. i was using mane and tail conditioner as a protein to help strengthen my hair, but i didn't see any results. so i decided to simply do unto my hair ONLY when its NEEDED and not when i FEEL like it, lol.
so these are my products:
Suave conditioner and shampoo - the cheaper the better. i have learned that you can pay a dollar for a bottle of suave and have just as soft hair. the difference - the prices. some are outrageous, and thats why i am a faithful suave fan. i use the shampoo now only on days where i feel like my hair is really sticky or maybe if my hair has sweated alot. other than that, i decided not to use shampoo.
Creme of Nature (CON) leave in conditioner - this is one of my favorite leave ins. it leaves my hair really soft. i put in a spray bottle and mix it with water. this used to follow every time i washed my hair, but under my new circumstances, i have decided to limit this to about a few washes a month.
Cantu Leave in Conditioner - this is my new protein treatment. i have decided to only use this product during the first few weeks after my relaxers.
castor oil, coconut oil and african best herbal oil - these are my oils that i oil my scalp with and seal my hair with. my castor oil is the one i use EVERYDAY.
kemi oyl - this is my heat protectant for when i use the blow dry and flat iron.
Cantu daily oil moisturizer and African's best olive oil moisturizing lotion - these are my moisturizers. cantu is thicker than my african's best. i live my african's best more and i am going to continue to use it until i have some negative result.
herbal essences hello hydration moisturizing conditioner and olive oil replenishing conditioner - these are my deep conditioners (DC).
i get my relaxers at least every 10 weeks. i am planning on longer stretches when i can tame my new growth (NG).
i try to only get trims every 3-6 months.
i moisturize every day and oil my scalp every day.
i try to wash my hair twice a week to keep my scalp clean.
i relax regularly with gentle treatment. i have previously relaxed with olive oil and creme of nature and soft and beautiful.
any other additions will be added to a different blog.
basically, these are all of my products!!!
