Khadijah's Healthy Hair Regimen
Hi naturalistas! So many of you ask me what I do to my hair to make it grow and what I do to care for my hair on a daily basis. First, let me start of by saying that I have 4c hair and it is definitely manageable! Also, although we may have a similar hair type or texture, we may not have the same healthy hair regimen.
I wash my hair every 2 weeks. Prior to applying any product to my hair, my hair is washed in either of two ways: in four sections or in two strand twists. I wash my hair in four sections for the days when my hair needs extra tlc and it allows for more manageability of the whole head. I wash my hair in two strand twists for little to no breakage and shedding. If the twists unravel, I simply retwist them as I go.
Step 1: I prepoo with Groovy Growth Serum overnight or 25-30 minutes before cleansing my hair. I place a plastic cap on my hair to generate heat.
Step 2: I rinse out the oil with hot water to expand the cuticle. I then apply the Lemon Cleansing Cowash liberally to the hair from root to tip. I rinse with lukewarm water.
Step 3: I apply the Cupuacu Mint Deep Hydration Masque liberally to the hair, paying special attention to the tips of my hair as they are the oldest part of my hair. I place a plastic cap on my hair for 45 minutes. I then rinse with cool water to seal the cuticle.
Step 4: I blot my hair with a t-shirt to dry excess water but, I do not dry completely. I like my hair to be damp when applying stylers and to style.
Step 5: I mist my hair with the Rosemary Mint Leave In Conditioner and I also spray my scalp so that it can receive a treatment as well.
Step 6: I then either apply the Aloha Curls Hair Milk or Down My Back Hair Butter to my hair and do mini two strand twists. I only use both products when my hair is feeling on the dry side and needs some extra lovin’.
Step 7: I apply the oils of my choice (Groovy Growth Serum or Hair Vigor Intense Hair Growth Oil) to my scalp
AND WASH DAY IS DONE IN A MAXIMUM OF 2 HOURS!
Throughout the Week
It is important to listen to your hair! I listen to my hair and notice that it feels less moisturized every 2-3 days, so I moisturize it every 2-3 days. To moisturize I spritz my hair and scalp with the Rosemary Mint Leave In Conditioner. I then apply the Aloha Curls Hair Milk or Down My Back Hair Butter to my hair. Lastly, I seal my hair and oil my scalp with Groovy Growth Serum or Hair Vigor Intense Hair Growth Oil.
DONE! THIS TAKES ME LESS THAN 5 MINUTES.
I wear my hair in two strand twists, twistouts or in a puff. I love low manipulation styles because they aid in length retention and gives you time to work on other things besides your hair!
I do not have a set trimming schedule and actually advise against it. I only trim my hair when I notice that my hair needs to be trimmed. I only apply a protein treatment to my hair once a year as I am severely protein sensitive. I get my protein from my diet and do not need to apply extra protein topically.
That's all there is to it naturalistas! I keep it short, sweet, and simple and my hair loves me for that! Want to create your own healthy hair regimen, click here to get started.
