Wash day regimen + Routine Update (4 to 6 months)

I wore my hair out for a little while and then decided to go back to wearing my wig daily.  While sitting under the dryer deep conditioning I figured why not document what I’m doing now.

I do this process once a week, usually on the weekends.
1. Cowash hair with As I Am Coconut Cowash.
2. Deep condition with heat for at least 20 minutes with Oyin Honey Hemp Conditioner.
3. Apply Oyin Hair Dew as a leave-in.
4. Seal and twist hair using Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade.
***Tonight will be my first night using the Jamaican Black Castor Oil in months.****

Sometimes I will switch products, but the process and steps are always the same.  I wear a satin bonnet to bed and don’t touch my hair again until the next wash day. 

Having a busy schedule really helps to distract me from having hand-in-fro syndrome.  Wash days are when I take the time to really play in my hair.  At week’s end my hair is still really moisturized without adding any extra product during the week.

Wigs – A Protective Style Option

I recorded this video a little while ago and never took the time to share it here.  Some people may be against wearing wigs because they look fake or take out your edges.

I see wigs as a great option to switching up your style and also as a protective style.  I wore the wig in the video for around two months and my hair grew a lot as a result.  I did not neglect taking care of my hair and it paid off.

Now it is way too hot to even think about a wig, but who knows…I may end up purchasing one for the winter months.

The wig showcased in this video is by Sensationnel and it is the Vivica Lace Front Wig.
