My Regimen

Hey Divas,

After being threaten by a large mob with a crime boss name @jdeloach5 on twitter I will post my regimen.

***Warning I will not use 60 million products in my hair everyday I am a Keep It Simple type of woman so if you’re looking for bells, whistles and fireworks you wont find it here***

My regimen is really a process that I’m continually evolving if you don’t like something change it and make it yours do what works for you.

My nightly ritual
Spray my hair with my spritzer I make. I use whatever I have available moisture in the spray bottle. For next 2 months my spray bottle will contain the following:
  • Aloe Juice
  • Rosemary EO
  • Navratna Oil
  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Lemongrass/Lavender Oil (for smell good)

**Tip: The spritzer is also used as a moisture replenisher if my hair gets dry during the day. Don’t soak your hair; just give it a mist all over.

I wear a fro a lot and this is what I do to get that blowout look with out the heat:
I spray my hair enough to dampen it and part my hair in to 4 sections
I then take about a nickel size dollop of Shea Moistures Curl Enhancing Smoothie on 1 of the 4 sections brush it with my denman brush** and put it in a pony tail. I do the same with the remain sections; because my hair is still kind of short I just put my satin bonnet on and go to sleep. If you have longer hair you can twist or braid your ends then put a bonnet on

 **Tip: Take out every other row of bristles from your denman brush it makes it easier to use and detangle hair.

My Morning Ritual
After I have gotten dressed I take my bonnet off, take down each section, take my wide tooth pick and pick my fro out. Your hair should still be moisturized but if my hair is dry in the morning I just put a dollop of the Shea Moistures Curl Enhancing Smoothie in my hand and work it in my fro.

My Weekly Regimen
Wash 2x a week with diluted peppermint castile soap or Dudu Osun black soap
Condition with Silk Elements Olive oil Moisturizing conditioner usually or what ever I’ve bought.
I add 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil or coconut oil to my conditioner leave it in for about 5 mins then rinse.
Dudu-Osun Black Soap

I deep condition only once a week with a moisturizing conditioner with the added oils and I do a protein treatment using Silk Elements Cholesterol Conditioner every 1 to 2 months. I use coconut oil a lot because of his protein content and by using it I haven’t had to do protein treatments often.

My current deep conditioner I mix it up ahead of time to prepare for the week. I use about 3oz of conditioner 3 tablespoons of Navratna oil and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil or olive oil mix it up and put it in a small 4oz jar I got from Wal-Mart they’re food containers and come in an 8pk.
Navratna Oil
Deep conditioner mixture
 I sit under an old school heating cap when I’m deep conditioning to help my hair get all the benefits

After I’ve washed and conditioned my hair I go on to my Nightly ritual above with out the spritzer because my hair is already wet.

Well, This is it lol I hope it can help someone out let me know what you think or if this is something that will work for you!!
