My Relaxed Hair Regimen

Here is what I do on a weekly basis

Step 1: PREPOO (Pre-shampoo Treatment)

•Oil scalp using an applicator bottle

I use one of my favorite oil(usually olive oil or jojoba or coconut) and add a few drops of tea tree oil, warm the mixture, apply it to my scalp and massage.The tingling effect helps stimulate my scalp and retrieve itchiness.Click here to purchase the oils I use

•Apply a light protein conditioner to my dry hair tips to roots.

I cover my hair with a shower cap and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. When I’m not lazy, I sit under the dryer for 20-minutes for a more intense penetration.

Prepoo Products

I alternate between Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor, ORS Hair Mayonnaise and ORS Replenishing Conditioner

I alternate between these light protein conditioners. They also have slip which is a must for prepoo. They are light and also provide not only strength but also moisture . Since the slip is amazing , I’m able to detangle as I am rinsing out the conditioner under running water. This technique is a must in my relaxed hair regimen! I’m able to easily detangle without facing unnecessary breakage.

Step 2: MOISTURIZING SHAMPOO

I love moisturizing and detangling shampoos. Not only they cleanse, they keep my hair tangle free. My hair and scalp aren’t stripped after using them. I shampoo twice . Be sure to rinse well each time. I use one or the other . In my opinion, the only difference between these two is the smell.

Step 3: MOISTURIZING DEEP CONDITIONER

Deep conditioning treatments are quintessential! After cleansing, all the nutrients from the deep conditioner can deeply penetrate into the hair shaft! It’s important to be pick a deep conditioner that has moisturizing and softening ingredients. The deep conditioning treatment below provide intense moisture and as I am rinsing out the conditioner , I detangle so easily.

Step 4: LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER |MOISTURIZER

My leave-in is moisture based. It doesn’t contain any protein. A good leave-in adds extra moisture, detangles and protects the hair prior to styling. I love the Lotta Body leave-in! I don’t even want to try a new one, that’s how much I love it. I love to wear my hair out so 9/10, I do a rollerset. I apply my leave-in and rollerset. Sometimes , I apply a tad bit of moisturizer if I know I’ll be outside a lot.(Extended exposure to sunlight can dry out the hair so I like to give my hair extra moisture prior). The ORS Hair lotion makes my hair super silky and moisturized.

Step 5: SERUM AND STYLE

After drying my rollerset underneath the hooded dryer , I apply my serum and wrap my hair.

I love these serums ! I only seal with them ! A little goes a long way. They’re very light.

MOISTURIZING AND SEALING

I listen to my hair and moisturize as needed. If I feel like it’s losing moisture, I lightly moisturize with the ORS Hair Lotion and seal with the One n Only Argan Oil Spray. On a ever age , I moisturize once to twice weekly. If it feel like it doesn’t need any products then I don’t add anything .

NIGHT TIME ROUTINE

At night , I use two flexi rods to preserve my style . If I want it straight , I wrap my hair. I make sure . I massage my scalp nightly for at least 2 mins.
