Hair Care Regimen

Finding a weekly or monthly routine that allows you to maintain the overall health and length retention of your hair can be done in three easy steps.
  1. Start out by removing processes and products that don't agree with your hair and add those that do
  2. Find a regimen that is most suited for your lifestyle.  As your hair and lifestyle changes your regimen should as well
  3. Stick with it. Black hair is fragile, which means it tends to be dry and prone to breakage. So it's important to nourish the hair so it retains it's overall health.

Here's an example of a basic hair care regimen.
  • Co-wash once a week or two weeks. If you feel the need to shampoo then be sure to use a sulfate free shampoo (rotate shampoos and conditioners so that the hair doesn't totally acclimate and stop responding)
  • Deep condition after each wash for 30-40 minutes
  • Rinse hair with cool or warm water (rinsing hair with hot water can dry it out)
  • Hot oil treatments provide added moisture
  • Seal in moisture with a butter (during the winter) or a light oil (during the summer)
  • Protein treatment once every six weeks (this is especially recommended for damaged hair)
  • Wear protective styles such as twists, braids, wigs, etc.
