Oil Treatments info:
———- WASH INFO ———-
I wash every other day.
On wash days, I use a sulfate shampoo on my scalp only. (Some shampoos I like are the LUSH Godiva shampoo bar and the Herbal Glo Dandruff Dry Scalp Shampoo).
After shampooing, I condition the length using a silicone conditioner (Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal is a favorite).
*** After applying my conditioner, I clip my hair up for a few minutes to get the most benefit. ***
I dry my hair with a tee shirt, and then let it air dry the rest of the way.
I always apply an oil as a leave-in after washing; I apply more or less depending on whether I will be wearing my hair up or down. (I will put in as much oil as I can get away with! 😉) In this video, I used Sesa hair oil, but I also like pure argan oil too!
———- STYLES ———-
I tend to keep my hair up in protective styles most days.
I do cinnamon buns on weekdays and different braids on weekends.
I only let my hair down for special occasions.
I sleep with my hair in a braid.
———- DETANGLING ———-
I always wait until my hair is 100% dry before detangling.
I only use a wide tooth comb and my fingers to detangle.
For more info, see this video where I explain in detail how to detangle gently:
———- DEEP TREATMENTS ———-
*** This is the most important part of my routine!! ***
I do weekly deep treatments with natural oils.
