I have quite a few products in rotation at the moment, but my actually regimen is pretty simple. I am very frugal...I absolutely love cheap products!
Shampoos: Suave Kids 2 in 1 Shampoo, ORS Olive Oil Creamy Aloe Shampoo
Deep Conditioners: ORS Olive Oil Replenishing Pak, Aubrey Organics Honey Suckle Rose
Regular Conditioners: Suave Natural Tropical Coconut Conditioner, Herbal Essence Hello Hydration
Leave-ins/Moisturizers: Palmers Olive Oil Moisturizing Hair Milk, Creme of Nature Lemongrass & Rosemary Leave-in
Stylers: ORS Lock & Twist Gel, Ecostyler Gel (Olive Oil), Fantasia Heat Protectant (serum)
Sealants: EVOO, Unrefined Shea Butter
Protein: 1 egg whipped a cheap conditioner and melted shea butter
- Straighten (once a month)
- Mini Twist
- Twist/Braid/Bantu Knot Outs (done on damp, dry, or previously straighten hair)
- Buns (high/low/side, done on an old set or straighten hair)
I wash my hair with shampoo every two weeks and generally co-wash during the off week. I deep condition with every shampoo wash and do a protein treatment once a month before I straighten. I usually apply leave-in conditioner and seal ends, then put my hair in two cornrows to allow it to stretch and partially dry before beginning to style.
