♥*´`*•.¸ Current Everyday Wash and Go Regimen ¸.•*´`*♥
(I redo my hair almost daily using the following technique while in the shower)
- Cowash with a RO.
- Divide my hair into 4-6 sections and clip up.
- Undo one section.
- Finger detangle, rinse out RO, apply a LI conditioner/cream/milk-of-the-moment.
- Apply a styler like a gel/pudding/custard-of-the-moment.
- Clip section back up.
- Repeat on all the sections.
- Get out the shower, unclip all sections, and shake it out!
- Let it air dry.
- I DON’T TOUCH UNTIL AFTER IT DRIES!
Wash, Deep Condition, and Detangle Day (every other week):
- Wash with a sulfate-free shampoo.
- Apply deep conditioner.
- Detangle with wide tooth comb with deep conditioner distributed in hair.
- Follow the regular routine, starting with the leave in.
