Moisturise and seal
I moisturise and seal as needed when my hair is out. Usually twice to thrice a week.
- Dr Miracle's Curl Care Leave In Conditioner or
- Glyco-Lemon leave In Conditioner
- seal the leave in conditioner with castor oil
When in braids, I spray my hair with braid spray everyday.
- Sta-sof-fro Extra Dry Braid Spray, or
- Homemade braid spray mix
1- 3 times per week.
When in braids I usually oil my scalp three times a week. When my hair is undone, I oil it two or so times a week.
- olive oil
- castor oil
- coconut oil, or
- some natural oil mix
Once a month. I don't do it every single month. Guess it just depends on my mood lol..
I'm usually in protective styles 80% of the year. It's just easier for me as a student to have my hair up and out of the way. It also means I get to retain length and keep my ends hidden. Generally my long - term protective styles are in for about 5-6 weeks and no more.
When my hair is loose I usually do roll, tuck and pin or bunning styles.
And thats my regimen :-)
