I am just trying to understand my hair, to learn what works and what doesn't, to experiment, make mistakes, and to embrace my hair in it's entirety..... because Roots Don't Lie

My current Hair Regimen

Hey Guys,

I have been doing pretty much the same thing with my hair for a couple of months now and although my regimen is not perfect I am comfortable enough to share it and off course I'll tweak it as time goes on.
Please refer to my previous post on Products I Currently Use

  1. I shampoo my hair, with any shampoo I feel like,  about every 2 weeks. I used to shampoo more often in the summer but as its getting cold I find my hair does not get dirty or itchy as during the summer. I am not very picky with my shampoo I find they basically all do the same thing so yeah no magic potion shampoo out there. lol.
  2. After each wash I deep condition with any deep conditioner of choice. I used to deep condition for at least 5 hours or just overnight, but lately I just deep condition for about 2 hours because I don't have as much time. I will try to deep condition more often since my hair is now colored.
  3. I usually de-tangle after deep conditioning because at this point my hair is very moisturized and all the knots just melt away. 
  4. After deep conditioning I put my hair in twists so they can air dry, and this helps to prepare my hair for whatever style I intend to wear my hair in
  5. Depending on how much time I anticipate having to spend on my hair, or the mood I'm in, I either put my hair in mini twists which I wear for about a month, or wear a puff, up-do, or bun till the next wash day.
Sometimes I feel my hair needs moisture and so midweek I de-tangle, re-moisturize my hair and put back in twists. I find myself also trying more up-do's because my hair is a lot longer and I can do more with it. I still dislike bobby pins but till I find an alternative I will wave my white flag of surrender. I hope to try out more products, but at the same time I find myself buying less products because simply, the ones I have already work.

However I am open to doing more product reviews so if you have heard of any good products let me know so I can try them out.

Hopefully this is simple and explanatory enough. If anyone will like a pictorial tutorial on any of the steps mentioned above please feel free to leave a comment and I will work on those.

Thanks for reading
