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.

Wash Day (9 weeks post)

Hope everyone is having a terrific weekend so far. I know mine is going well :) This week I've protective styled every day so I'm patting myself on the back for that :) Last weekend I was urging to relax early but the feeling has since passed. I've been toying with the idea of putting in cornrows as a protective style.

Anyway here's what I did to my hair today:
1) Detangled with EVOO. I left it on for an hour with a plastic cap (pre-poo)
2) Shampooed (lathered twice) with Dove shampoo
3) Conditioned in-shower with Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner
4) Moisturized with S-curl, sealed with EVOO
5) Air dry w/ scarf method

Thoughts:
 My hair is not completely dry yet, but the parts that are dry feel smooth and soft. My new growth is starting to come in. There was a lot of hair in the comb this wash. Probably because I haven't detangled in days. I also skipped my usual leave-in today (aphogee green tea & keratin) in place of something moisture based (S-curl).

Plan until next wash day is to protective style with hats and halfwigs. Moisturizing and sealing with EVOO as needed. Simple.
