Having completed my two (2) year transition from texturized to my naturally curly 3c/4A, low porosity hair, I think it is beyond safe to conclude that I have invested significant amounts of time and money in hair care. Today however, I am ecstatic to confess that I have finally settled in using a few great hair products. These products detail my hair regimen as of late. Here is my list:
1. SHAMPOO, CONDITIONER, DEEP CONDITIONER & CO-WASH
I usually shampoo and condition my hair every week or every two weeks (on rare occasions). I go about this by sectioning my hair into 4 and shampooing each section. I also barely co-wash, but if I do, it will normally be in a situation where I want fresh curls for a day/ night out but have only shampoo-ed my hair a couple days prior. My hair is naturally dry and so, it is imperative that I do not over-wash my hair. In terms of deep conditioning, I usually do this once or twice a month with a therapeutic steam cap. Products are as follows:
After shampooing my hair, I would usually do my styling on damp hair. For me, the L.O.C. – Leave-In Conditioner, Oil, Cream – method works best because it keeps my hair soft and moisturized for days. Also, as mentioned before, my hair is of a low porosity and so, this method agrees well with me. After I apply this method to style, should I have to manipulate my hair in the days that follow, I simply use a few sprits of water, conditioner or leave-in cream and, gel to style my hair. The gel is mostly used for neat updo’s, to lay edges or to tame frizz from protective styles. For oils, sometimes I use a mix of various oils and other times I use one oil as my sealant. Products are as follows:
My current regimen is pretty simple but is subject to change. I will highlight though, that the Shea Moisture products have helped propel my hair growth to its natural state as I started to use this line while I was still transitioning. The Cantu line has proved to work the best for me in terms of styling. Other products which have agreed with me in the past include:
I hope this entry helped you in some way! I bid you good luck on your own hair journey 🙂
