Recently, I was having a conversation with a friend about how it takes us a while to master our hair care routine. I have a wash schedule that i’ve perfected over the years, however I am not stuck on any sort of product.
My mom is a product junkie and when she is over something, she just gives it to me and I make it work. I do like some products over others but as long as I have my staples that usually gets me my desired results.
Here is the schedule:
Co-wash (cleansing my hair with conditioner) once a week. This allows me to rinse and re-twist my hair for a fresh look.
Cleanse- I cleanse my hair with shampoo once a month (usually around the 15th).
Deep Condition- I deep condition once a month after I shampoo.
Twist out Staples (in order of use)
Oil -my favorite is Jojoba oil, but I really just use what I have on hand
Cream Base- I’ve used leave in conditioner, regular conditioner, curling putty. Anything works but this is my favorite.
Gel- I have naturally big hair and I need gel! I’ve tried moose which is okay but not my favorite. I’ve used eco-styler gel for years I heard it may be bad for you but honestly it’s the best.
After all my products are in I like to let my hair air dry in twist for about two days then I rock my curls for about a week.
