My Natural Hair Regimen

Two Strand Twist Out

My Natural Hair Regimen

(As of April 2011)
On Saturdays….
I Shampoo and Condition my hair with one of my many shampoo and conditioners. But recently I’ve been rotating between the following product lines – Shea Moisture Yucca & Baobab or Shea Moisture Organic Shea Butter, or Design Essential. I do use many other products, but these are my main 3 that I’ve been using recently. 
(I will keep you all updated when things change.)

I detangle my hair as I apply the conditioner using this technique:

I rinse the conditioner out with the twist still in my hair. I squeeze the twists to make sure the water is getting through the twists and to make sure the product is getting out of my hair (yes some of the twists loosen). When it’s all rinsed out I apply Deep Conditioner

Day 5 Braid Out

I have 3 deep conditioners that I use. Most often I used the Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque. Sometimes I use the Organic Root Stimulator Hair Mayonnaise. And on a few occasions I use the Organix Coconut Repair Deep Treatment. I usually leave my deep Conditioner in my hair for a few hours (Sometimes overnight). Leaving my deep conditioner in for more then 3 hours leaves my hair uber soft!

I rinse out the deep conditioner, loosen the twists, and then I Moisturize and Pamper my hair. This video shows you how I apply the following products to my hair.

Flat Twist Out

I use the following products (in this exact order) Shea Moisture Yucca & Baobab Thickenning Mist, Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil, Shea Moisture Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner, and Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie OR my Shea Butter Mix.

After all products have been applied I will set my hair in one of the following.

15-20 Two Strand Twists – then I’ll rock a Twist Out

15-20 Braids – Then I’ll rock a braid Out
10-15 Flat Twists – then I’ll rock a Flat Twist Out

Part two

I untwist the next mornin and I Retwist/braid/flat twist my hair at night to preserve the curl pattern. If I don’t have time to reset my hair I will put my hair in Mini Pineapples.

On Wednesdays….

I Cowash my hair using any of my many conditioners using this technique.
After I cowash, I Moisturize and Pamper my hair the same way that I do on Saturdays. After all products have been applied I will set my hair in one of the sets listed above (Two Strand Twists, Braids, or Flat Twists) like I do on Saturdays.

I give my hair so much LOVE and my growth shows the LOVE and time I’ve given my hair.
If you have 4b kinky/curly/coily hair like me, this regimen may give you extreme softness, moisture and shine!

If you have tried my regimen, please share with me (below) how this worked for you. 
Be open and honest.
