Hey guys. So this topic has been long requested and I’m glad I have finally put it up. It’s really going to be simple and straight to the point. Please note that this is only my wash routine. I will make another post on how I deep condition my hair. I decided to divide it into two because it would be too bulky.
As you know it’s winter and this season really makes my hair dry and causes serious breakage. So throughout the winter period I use protective styles to prevent my hair from going through all the damage. My hair is going to be 2 years in June and I’m very impressed with the growth. Without wasting time let’s go into the steps I take when washing my hair
1) PREEPO- I use the Jamaican castor oil for this. I’m totally in love with this oil. I stopped using coconut oil because I noticed it caused severe itching of my scalp and I could not deal with it. I put the Jamaican oil all over my hair and scalp and leave it on for about 30 minutes to one hour. Make sure you wear a shower cap. You can get this oil on amazon.
2)WASH- After an hour I divide my hair into 4 sections and wash with warm water. I use the Cantu shampoo. I have used this product since I started growing my natural hair and I actually want to try other products. Be sure to get updated when I do.
3) CONDITION- Most times I do deep conditioning but I will make a different post for that. For regular conditioning, I use the Cantu rinse out conditioner and massage it into my hair.
4) DETANGLING- With the conditioner still on, I use a big comb to detangle my hair section by section by running my fingers through my hair and combing out with the comb. Be careful, it could hurt.
5)RINSE OUT- After detangling I rinse out with warm water thoroughly. And then Dry with a clean towel. You can leave the towel on till your hair is completely dry. I don’t use heat on my hair so I allow it dry naturally
6) APPLY LEAVE IN CONDITIONER- After my hair is completely dry, I apply Cantu leave in conditioner and massage into my hair. This makes it softer and easier to comb. You could also add oil. After doing this I braid my hair into a few ponytails to retain the moisture.
So guys this is the end of my wash hair routine. It’s quite easy. You could also share your routine in the comment section. Thanks for reading and I hope you try it.
