My Relaxed Hair Regimen

Here is the hair regimen I use on my relaxed hair and the products I use as of 2/8/17. You can see more about how I care for my hair by viewing my Wash Day and Relaxer Touch Up posts.

I've also created a store with some of my favorite hair products that I use in my relaxed hair regimen so you can easily purchase them for yourself. You can access the store here.
