Regimen + Goals

My Hair Regimen: I moisturize and/or oil my hair daily. As needed (usually weekly) I cleanse my hair and scalp with a moisturizing shampoo (or a clarifying one if there's build up). I do a moisturizing OR protein treatment with every shampoo. I stretch my relaxers 3-4 months.

My go-to protective/low manipulation styles: buns, braid-outs and halfwigs. In 2012 I want to start experimenting with more heat-free styles. I air dry most of the time and flat iron for length checks only.

I'm currently midback length (MBL) and actively working towards reaching waist length by my graduation in mid-2012.

Weekend Wash Day

Pre-pooing overnight with JBCO+pep oil in a bun
Last night I doused my hair with vatika oil and a mix of JBCO+peppermint to scalp only. Put it in a high bun and let it soak in overnight under a plastic cap. So I guess this is baggying, pre-pooing and hot oil treating in one step, cool beans.

Now it's the next morning. Time for wash day, here's the plan....

1) Shampoo with diluted HE CMH shampoo (2 lathers)
2) Condition w/ One n Only Argan Oil conditioner
3) Final rinse with Porosity Control C&C
4) Leave-in Aphogee Green Tea & Keratin Mist
5) Air dry with a scarf and let the back hang loose

Thoughts/Blabber: It's been 6 days since my last hair wash. I'm glad I could go so long without washing considering the amount of products I caked on during the week. Next wash I will only use 1oz of shampoo diluted with 1oz water...this time I used 2oz shampoo diluted with 1oz water (3oz total) and it was too much

JBCO makes my hair ridiculously soft. I need to repurchase a new bottle soon since my current bottle is almost done..

I did a lean back in the shower and my hair reached waist :o I should be there before 2012. Or blunt MBL if I become scissor happy. Either way, I'm excited

School is starting soon. I'm going to tweak my regimen for less washing and less manipulation in general. The semester gets so hectic and I already know from now that my hair will take a back seat to everything else. So I need to think of a solid bare-minimum school regimen...


  1. Is JBCO the Jamaican Black Castor Oil?

  2. This is random but I actually like the prepoo bun, nice messy bun. LOL.
    I know what you mean about tweaking your reggie for the new semester. I still don't know what I'm going to do yet. Keep us updated, HHJ! :)

  3. Cute bun--I like styles that are super cute, but look effortless.

  4. Eyebrows looking good!

    And I like the bun too..
    I think I will incorporate the pre-poo step into my regimen. Or at least greasing my scalp the night before..

  5. I know how it feels when school gets hectic, it seems like everything takes a back seat

  6. I've come across this blog from the thirsty roots page. How can I get to the beginning of your blog, bc that's where I am in my process and I'd like to start there. Thank you.

  7. each time i used to read smaller posts that as well clear their motive,
    and that is also happening with this paragraph which I am reading at this time.
