I get a lot of questions about my hair and what I do to take care of it. So I’ve decided to share with the world my weekly hair routine and the produces that I use.
Just an FYI, my hair is color treated.
I start off by thoroughly brushing through my hair to get out any knots and tangles. This also helps get out any loose hairs and it makes it easier for me to run product through my hair once it’s wet.
Once in the shower, I like to stand under the faucet and let warm water run through my hair for about a minute or two. I am careful not to use too hot of water to avoid burning my scalp.
I lather my hair a total of three times (don’t ask why because I have no idea). First I use Selsun Blue Dandruff Shampoo. I do have a history of dry scalp and this product has helped immensely with controlling it. I massage a generous amount of it into my scalp and work it throughout the rest of my hair before rinsing.
Next I use Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Shampoo by SheaMoisture. Again I massage a generous amount of it into my scalp and work it throughout the rest of my hair. Then I rinse and repeat.
After my third shampoo, I let the water run through my hair again to ensure I’ve gotten out all the shampoo. Then I wring out as much the excess water from my hair as I can. Next apply my hair masque. I use SheaMoisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Treatment Masque. I massage it throughout my scalp, along my edges, and all the way down to my ends. Once I’ve applied a good layer of produce, I put on a disposable shower cap and let it sit for 30-40 minutes.
After 30-40 minutes I run water through my hair again to ensure I’ve gotten out all the product and then wring out as much water as possible. To dry my hair I use a towel or t-shirt to remove even more water. A majority of the time I then let my hair air dry before straightening it. Very rarely do I use my blow dryer.
Once my hair has dried completely, I use Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray by Tresemme to protect my hair from the heat of my straightener. I spray it all over and make sure to get my edges and ends really good. I then part my hair down the middle and braid one side to keep it out of the way as I straighten the other side. It takes me about 30-40 minutes to straighten my whole head.
When I am done straightening I brush through my hair again to make sure I don’t have any knots or tangles. And voiliá there you have it.I run through this routine 1-2 times a week. If I feel I need a quick touch up, I use Batiste’s Dry Shampoo.
