♥*´`*•.¸ Current Everyday Wash and Go Regimen ¸.•*´`*♥

(I redo my hair almost daily using the following technique while in the shower)

  1. Cowash with a RO.
  2. Divide my hair into 4-6 sections and clip up.
  3. Undo one section.
  4. Finger detangle, rinse out RO, apply a LI conditioner/cream/milk-of-the-moment.
  5. Apply a styler like a gel/pudding/custard-of-the-moment.
  6. Clip section back up.
  7. Repeat on all the sections.
  8. Get out the shower, unclip all sections, and shake it out!
  9. Let it air dry.
  10. I DON’T TOUCH UNTIL AFTER IT DRIES!

Wash, Deep Condition, and Detangle Day (every other week):

  1. Wash with a sulfate-free shampoo.
  2. Apply deep conditioner.
  3. Detangle with wide tooth comb with deep conditioner distributed in hair.
  4. Rinse.
  5. Follow the regular routine, starting with the leave in.
