Revised Regimen with details

I was asked to give a detailed schedule of my regimen. So, here it is. I hope that it is understandable.


SHAMPOO DAY (every alternating week from CO WASH DAY)
- I rinse my entire head of warm/hot water with no product. By doing this, I preparing my scalp for effective cleansing.
- I apply my diluted shampoo (2 TBS shampoo/1 cup water mixture) directly to my scalp, massage, rinse and repeat.
- I apply my egg mixture (1 egg/1 TBS oil/1 2TBS conditioner) to my my entire hair, concentrating on my ends and length. This stays on for 15-20 minutes and rinse.
- I apply my conditioner (cheapie conditioner) to my hair, concentrating on my ends and length and rinse with cool water.
- I apply my DC (cholestrol conditioner or light protein conditioner or water based moisturizing conditioner). I leave this on anywhere between 1 hour to 4 hours and rinse with cool water.
- I t-shirt dry my hair until it is anywhere between 50-80% dry.
- I apply my Aphogee Green Tea and Keratin Spray.
- I apply my water based moisturizing leave in conditioner. I will seal this leave in with an oil.
- I will either style or allow hair to continue to air dry.


CO-WASH DAY (every alternating week from SHAMPOO DAY)
- I apply my ACV mixture (1 TBS ACV, 1 cup water) directly my scalp. After 5 minutes, I will rinse my scalp with warm water.
- I apply my conditioner (cheapie conditioner) to my hair, concentrating on my ends and length and rinse with cool water.
- I apply my DC (cholesterol conditioner or light protein conditioner or water based moisturizing conditioner). I leave this on anywhere between 1 hour to 4 hours and rinse with cool water.
- I tshirt dry my hair until it is anywhere between 1 hour to 4 hours and rinse with cool water.
- I apply my water based moisturizing leaving conditioner. I will seal this leave in with an oil.
- I will either style or allow hair to continue to air dry.

I dust every six months.
I trim once a year.
I (am starting to) relax every 12 weeks. (Before it was every 8 weeks.) (ORS Normal Relaxer)
I am currently taking Biotin 1000 mg three times a day.
I am currently taking an adult multi vitamin.
I use direct heat once a month.
I (am starting to) baggy/greenhouse effect method three to four times a week. (Before it was once a month.)


*Products tend to vary due availability in stores


One thing people should know is that I do not put my hair on a schedule. I only wash my hair once a week. Washing my hair more than once a week strips my hair, regardless of the amount of moisture I put back into it. I rather work smarter and not harder. Meaning, I rather wash my hair once a week with ease and use less product than wash two or more a week, apply additional product in my hair while it is costing me more time. Others may wash their hair more than once a week, but my hair thanks me for only washing once a week. Isn't the purpose of a HHJ is learn to listen to what your hair is saying and adjust accordingly? Well, that is what I have taken from this experience.

I hope this is more clarifying. Thanks for reading.
