Revising my Regimen

Hi guys,
    One of the most important things a healthy hair craver should have is a regimen. A healthy hair regimen is a sort of systematic plan  designed to improve and maintain the condition of the hair over time. For most hair types this should involve conditioning, deep conditioning, moisturising, sealing, protein treatments etc. In one of my earliest Posts I outlined my regimen at the time and as you may have noticed there was a lot of spritzing and sealing and Co-washing. It seems to me now that I spent alot of my time caring for my hair. I didn't mind all the work but as the condition of my hair improved and I got quality hair products it became necessary to change my regimen.

First of all my products changed. I started using Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in conditioning treatment and sealing with a mix of olive and castor oil. This left my hair super moisturised for a longer period of time. Just recently I started using whipped Shea Butter as a sealant and my hair stays moisturised for an even longer period. Then I got a satin bonnet. This helps to protect my strands form the drying effects of my cotton pillow case. I no longer woke up to I-am-dry-now-so-please-whip-out-your-spray-bottle-ASAP hair. This took care of my daily moisturising and sealing so I had to cut that out of my regimen. I also used to wash my hair every weekend because of my itchy scalp. Now I have ACV to help with that so I now find myself washing my hair less often. Here is my current regimen ( Friday's are my wash/Co-wash days):

Moisturise and seal with a butter every 3/4 days.
Spritz with water and glycerine if I notice a little dryness in between moisturising.

Co-wash every First Friday.
Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse every second Friday.
Co-wash every third Friday.
Shampoo every Last Friday followed by a protein based deep conditioner.

Deep conditioning
 Moisture based deep conditioning every second Friday after ACV rinsing.
Protein Based deep conditioning every fourth Friday after  shampooing.

Hot oil treatments
Every fourth Thursday before shampooing ( it also doubles as a Prepoo).

This is my current regimen and its working for me. You should get your hair on a regimen too, it will love you for it. Remember each person's hair is different so  do what works for you. Happy healthy hair growing :-)

The best way to comb your natural hair

Hi there,   Combing natural hair has always been a problem. There is a lot of pain involved but that's not the only challenge combing presents. Combing your hair is a major cause of hair breakage, remember those balls of hair you remove from your comb each time you comb?  Here are some tips to help you minimize breakage from combing: Use the right tool  Never use a fine tooth comb for your hair. It is better to use a wide toothed comb. This will reduce hair breakage. If you must use a fine tooth comb ensure you have thoroughly detangled and combed with a wide tooth comb first. Also make sure the teeth of the comb is seamless to avoid ripping out your hair as you comb.  Avoid these  Much better Comb your hair only when it is damp  Your hair is weakest when it is dripping wet and so combing it then will cause it to break.On the other hand combing your hair when it is dry will also break it off because your hair is not as flexible as it should be.
