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 with 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.
