Hair Care Routine
So as promised this post will cover how I have been taking care of my natural hair, as well as my go – to hairstyles, that I have been loving for my transitioning hair.
- So I usually start of by washing my hair with the Organics Shea Butter Shampoo. I wash my hair twice just to make sure that all the greasiness is out of my hair.
- I then go in with the Organics Shea Butter Conditioner. I usually leave this on for 10 – 15 minutes.
- I then apply the TRESemmé Keratin Deep Treatment Masque and also leave it on for about 15 minutes and this really leaves my hair soft before I start detangling, which definitely helps with the detangling process.
- I then start the detangling process and for this I use the Aunt Jackie’s “Knot on my watch” Instant Detangling Therapy. I’ve said this before, but I’m going to say it again, I absolutely LOVE this product!
- The last product I apply to my hair is the Cantu Shea Butter Coconut Curling Cream. It helps with defining your curls and also moisturizes the hair.
- I then start to put my hair in flexi rods.
- For extra moisture during the week I’ll apply the Polynesian Monoi Radiance Oil, an anti – breakage keratin oil or just use some good old Argan Oil.
I have been loving the flexi rods, because you can do it once a week and it gives you pretty cool curls, which you can rock for the entire week. It also gives me the flexibility to try out different hairstyles, which I will be sharing with you down below:
*Bandanas have been a lifesaver for those lazy days, because all I do is push my hair to the top of my head and then tie the bandana in the front and voila…
* The next hairstyle I call the Mini Mouse, it’s the ever so popular two buns at the top of your head. This has been my go-to hairstyle, because it’s easy to do and is absoultely cute!
*For this hairstyle I just took out the flexi rods and loosened the curls a bit and put on a headband. Flexi rods makes you get away with looking like you have been natural for a while, even though you’re still in the transitioning period.
* Those that know me, know that I love buns! So this wouldn’t be a true hairstyle post if I didn’t include “the bun”.
But that is it for this post…until next time
