My current regimen

  • Pre-poo prior to washing
  • Wash weekly, lather twice using one of the two combinations 
    • 1. a sulfate moisturizing shampoo and a sulfate-free shampoo most weeks
    • 2. a deep cleansing or sulfate shampoo when I need to clarify my hair followed by a sulfate-free moisturizing shampoo
    • I'll use a dry shampoo if I need a quick refresh between my weekly shampoos
  • Deep condition weekly 
    • Most weeks I use a moisturizing deep conditioner
    • If I feel my hair needs it I'll swap my moisturizing deep conditioner for a strength-based one
    • I sometimes mix different natural oils into my deep conditioner
    • I use my Hot Head Deep Conditioning Cap or my hair steamer each time I deep condition 
  • Green tea rinse
    • For some added oomph, I'll do a green tea rinse and sometimes mix in apple cider vinegar
    • This helps with shedding and sealing the cuticle
    • Sometimes I may do this before deep conditioning and leave the rinse on during deep conditioning. Other times I do it after deep conditioning
  • Dry my hair 
  • Moisturize and seal 
    • I do this several times a week at night (see my moisturizing and sealing routine here)
  • Baggy my ends 
    • Do this 3+ times a week to add moisture (see how I baggy my ends here)
