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.

Tip: Diluting Shampoo

I've been diluting shampoo by putting it in an applicator bottle with some water, and applying it directly to my scalp.

Benefits of diluting shampoo:
- Applicator bottle lets you get directly to the roots and scalp
- Shampoo becomes less harsh
- Makes thicker shampoos easy to spread and lather
- Use less shampoo and save money in the long run

I think I first found out about this method from Traycee from KISS, but I forgot about it and didn't think of trying it until I saw one of BuildableBeauty's youtube videos recently. I must say this is a great tip so had to share!

  2. i've been doing this since 2008, it makes shampooing so much easier

  3. texlaxed & things - Really? I'm so late on these things lol wish I did this sooner
