Big Chop Files…Summer Haircare Regimen and Products

It’s been a little over a month (going on 2 months now) since my 3rd big chop and my regimen since has been super simple. I rarely manipulate my hair and it has grown so much already. I’ve been wearing a wig daily, but i wanted to document what I use on my actual hair.  I must mention that I do not moisturize and seal daily…more like on wash day only.

1. Jamaican Black Castor Oil with Rosemary – I found this at Sally Beauty Supply and it was the last one so I snatched it up.  I use it on my edges occasionally.

2. Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus CoWash – I didn’t bring my cowash from home because I planned on buying a cheap Suave conditioner.  I couldn’t find the one I like, so I purchased this instead.  I co-wash once a week, usually on the weekend.

3. Neutrogena Triple Moisture Silk Touch Leave In – This was a staple when I was relaxed and I have a lot left so I’m trying to use it up.  I like it on my natural hair too.

4. Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter – Another product from my relaxed days.  I apply this after the leave-in.20140621-230106-82866302.jpg

5. Satin Bonnet – A must for bed.

6. Silk Elements Liquid Styling Gel – I actually got this for free when I purchased the JBCO from Sally’s.  This stuff is really moisturizing!

7. Shampoo Brush – I use this to detangle my hair on wash days.

 

So my regimen is to co-wash, apply leave-in, moisturize/seal, and apply gel since it has extra moisturizing properties.  I sleep with my satin bonnet each night and I don’t use anything on my hair during the week – I simply plop my wig on and go.

The products will definitely change as I use things up and the regimen will change as my hair gets longer, but this is it for now.
