Taming my mane

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.

Wash Routine:



  1. 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.
  2. I then go in with the Organics Shea Butter Conditioner. I usually leave this on for 10 – 15 minutes.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. I then start to put my hair in flexi rods.
  7. 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

xoxo Lilanie
