My Current Natural Hair Regimen & Staples

20:57:00



3C 4A My Hair Type


> 3c hair has a defined corkscrew shape and has the smallest space between the bends in the hair strand.

> 4a hair has a defined curl pattern almost like an "s" shape. Generally speaking, it retains moisture fairly well, but as with most curly hair types, it is prone to dryness

> Wash & go's are best worn for my hair type along with braids, twist or buns to help stretch the hair, heat is something I have to stay away from with this type of hair texture.

Update

> Weekly Co- Wash on a Saturday
> Clarify hair Monthly
> Deep Condition Weekly on wash day
> Protein Treatment once a month
> Pre-Poo night before wash day
> Moisturise and seal every day
> Finger Detangle

Typical Wash Day

Pre-Poo


I love to pre-poo my hair the night before wash day, which usually falls on a Friday night, this helps to soften my hair and it helps to prepare my hair for wash day.

Wash Day


My wash day always falls on a Saturday, I like to co-wash my hair every week, leading up to my 4 weekly clarify day.

Treatments


After every wash, I love to deep condition my hair, I prefer now to conduct a protein treatment every month rather than alternate it every other week, I am trying to balance the moisture and protein in my strands.

I always like to dry my hair with a t-shirt or a vest top before I apply my oils and my leave-in conditioner.

Moisture & Styling

> I moisture and seal my hair every day, seven days a week using either the LOC/LOCO/LCO method

> I do prefer to detangle my hair I only use my soft brush to tidy up my edges
> My go to hairstyle is a bun style, most times depending on my mood, I will do a wash &  go style
> I religiously wear a headscarf to bed without fail
> I trim my ends, as and when its needed

So that is what my typical hair regimen looks like, I do like to experiment with products, but I do not go overboard, testing each one for at least a month, gives me a true picture of whether the product has worked for me or not. I would love to hear from you about your hair regimen.

What does your hair regimen look like throughout the week? What products do you use? What is your go-to hairstyle?
