what's your hair care regimen?
It’s really quite simple:
I co-wash it if not every day, every other day, with a “natural” hair conditioner. Make sure I use plenty and comb through with my fingers. I don’t always do this in the morning especially if I don’t have time. So I keep a spray bottle of 1 part coconut oil to 2 parts water. (I sometimes add a little of the conditioner in the spray bottle but that really depends). If I spray it on dry hair I do so very liberally, get it all in there and happy. This helps keeps my hair moisturized and happy and I can wake it up from bed head. If my hair is already wet I just spray it on to use as a concealing agent to keep the moisture in.
Every week or so I wash it with a spray bottle full of 1 part Apple Cider Vinegar to 3 parts water. (I use a spray bottle because it is easier to apply!) I spray liberally, and use the tips of my fingers to rub from my scalp through my hair shaft. Then I condition and comb through with my fingers.
Sometimes I find it useful to deep condition my hair. I usually do this on wash day so after rinsing with ACV, I comb through with a wide-toothed comb and add a Shea butter and oil mixture (I use olive oil, coconut oil and avocado oil). I lather it in my washed and combed hair. Leave it in for 20 minutes (sometimes I wrap my hair sometimes I don’t) then I rinse that out with water.
And that’s it. Nothing too fancy, nothing too hard.
