My current regimen and products

  • Pre-poo with a mix made out of a rinse-out conditioner and natural oils 
  • To wash my hair I use a moisturizing, sulfate-free shampoo most weeks; a deep cleansing or sulfate shampoo when I need to clarify my hair; a dry shampoo if I need a quick refresh between my weekly shampoos. I typically lather twice
  • Occasionally use a rinse-out conditioner after shampooing for extra moisture
  • Deep condition weekly using a moisturizing deep conditioner. If I feel my hair needs it I'll swap my moisturizing deep conditioner for a strength-based one
  • I use my Hot Head Deep Conditioning Cap or my hair steam each time I deep condition 
  • For some added oomph, I'll do a rinse with a green tea and apple cider vinegar mix on my hair to help with shedding and sealing the cuticle
  • To dry my hair I typically do a roller set and use a heat protectant, leave-in, and hair serum
  • Moisturize and seal several times a week at night (see my moisturizing and sealing routine here)
  • Baggy my ends 3+ times a week to add moisture (see how I baggy my ends here)
