Hair Regimen

This is a long overdue update; I have had a busy couple of weeks but still continuing to take care of my hair. I have been working to establish a hair regimen and will outline what I have come up with so far and the products I use.

  • Moisturize and Seal (morning and night)
Every other day
  • Scalp massage with oils
  • Green House Effect
  • Prepoo with honey and coconut oil for 30 mins with heated towel
  • Shampoo
  • Deep Condition (Moisturizing DC or Protein DC, Protein every 2 weeks)
  • Apply Leave in conditioner
  • Moisturize using Liquid, Oil, Cream (LOC) method
  • Deep Condition on dry hair with a mixture of honey, oils and a moisturizing DC (this coincides with when I do my weekly facial cleanse, scrub, mask etc so it works out)
  • Co-wash
  • Apply Leave-in conditioner
  • Moisturize and Seal (LOC)

  • ORS Creamy Aloe Shampoo
  • Black Soap (Dudu Osun)

  • Moroccan Argan Oil Intense Moisturizing treatment
  • Dark and Lovely Ultra Cholesterol Conditioning Mask
  • V05 Moisture Milks Conditioner (instant/cowash conditioner)

  • ORS Hair Mayonnaise**
  • Vitale Anti-Breakage Leave in conditioner
  • V05 Split Ends Antibreakage Conditioner (instant/cowash conditioner)

  • Organics Extra Strength Olive Oil Growth Lotion
  • ORS HAIRepair Anti-breakage creme
  • Elasta QP Olive and Mango Butter

  • Olive oil
  • Grapeseed oil
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Castor Oil
  • Coconut Oil
  • Amla Oil ***

**After reading a certain post on LHCF I am unsure about ORS Hair Mayonnaise as a protein treatment, I am looking to get another protein deep conditioner but want to see how my hair fares with this conditioner first.
*** The brand of Amla oil I have, has Mineral Oil as the FIRST ingredient so it is not getting frequent use.

That's it! My current regime, I try to respond to what my hair needs rather than just following a regimen strictly for example I cowash almost daily as I found it works out for me in this TWA stage.
