What is your hair care regimen?

Right now during the winter, I wash or co-wash my hair while in braids or twists 2-3 times a week. I co-wash almost daily during the warmer months and wear a lot of wash and gos by using a micro fiber hair towel to soak up a lot of the water.

Once a week I take out the braids or twists, I apply castor oil and let it soak in. Then I put my hair in 4 loose braids, wash and, apply pantene relaxed and natural hair mask. I rinse each braid individually and rebraid to avoid a head full of tangles. I apply castor oil or avocado butter to my hair, detangle with my bone comb and then rebraid or twist.

Once a month I do a deep condition with aphogee or ion. I follow it up with fermodyl 619 and then proceed with detangling and styling.

I apply castor oil or avocado butter to my ends every night and sleep with my satin bonnet or scarf I put sulfur 8 on my scalp after every wash only during the winter because the weather is dry here. Occasionally, I will spray my ends at night and then put on the butter and/or oil.

Every 6 months, I go to my beautician. She flat irons, then presses, trims and curls my hair. That is the only time I trim my hair and I usually lose about 1/2 to 1 full inch each time. I wear my hair straight for a week or so just for dh and then the first wash after, I do a deep condition with protein and moisture.

Do you take any supplements? If so, what are they?

I take Vitality vitamins and minerals by Melaleuca for health reasons. I just try to eat a lot of fruits and veggies, workout, and drink lots of water.

Currently, how long is your hair and what is your hair type?

My hair is brastrap length about 8-8 1/2 inches on the growth in inches shirt. I am a natural 4b.

What are the things that you feel have helped you the most in achieving and maintaining your hair length?

  1. Finding LHCF and the products that work for me. I use everything from suave, to pantene, to nioxin depending on the condition of my hair and scalp.
  2. Paying attention to my hair so I know what to use and when.
  3. Finding a regimen that worked and sticking too it.
  4. Babying my hair. I take my time combing, styling, and even my beautician takes extra time and care with my hair because she knows just how I like it handled. I tell people all the time, “I am serious about my hair!”
  5. Moisturizing my ends, protecting them and enjoying my hair. Because I have the knowledge, I am not afraid to try different styles so I won’t get bored with it.
