My Relaxed Hair Regimen Update

Since I started my healthy hair journey a little over a month ago I've been trying several new products in an effort to find what my hair likes best. I've tried shampoos, conditioners, serums and styles. Many from brands I've never used before or even heard of before.

After trying all these hair products I've found some that my hair liked and others my hair didn't. This has resulted in changes to my relaxed hair regimen. So I wanted to provide you an update on the products I'm using and the overall changes I've made to my hair regimen. Anything I've added is bolded and anything removed is crossed out.

Changes I've made to my relaxed hair regimen. |

Wash day regimen:

  • Part hair and braid into 4-6 braids
  • Pre-poo with an oil or conditioner for 20-60 minutes
  • Shampoo or co-wash
  • Deep condition under my hooded dryer
  • Apply express conditioner (only if I pre-pooed with protein)
  • T-shirt dry for 30 minutes (I've been doing this the whole time, but forgot to include)
  • Apply my detangler and comb with my wide tooth seamless comb
  • Apply leave-in conditioner then serum
  • Air dry or under hooded dryer

The products I'm currently using are:




  • Thermafuse Smooth Balance Shampoo the week after a relaxer touch up
  • Eden BodyWorks JOJOBA Monoi All Natural Moisturizing Shampoo for moisture
  • SheaMoisture African Black Soap Deep Cleansing Shampoo for clarifying
