My 2021 Natural Hair Routine (Under Two Hours)

First, I want to start by thanking a few cosmetologists who have been willing to share their knowledge with the Twitter-sphere largely for free.

Simplifying Natural Hair

We’re going to call this a three-step method… but it’s really not even complex enough to consider a method. Like the title says, this process takes me a little over an hour.

Step 1: Shampoo

This one is self-explanatory, this step is cleansing as you typically do I use the TGIN shampoo.

Step 2: Condition and Detangling

This is when I take a Tangle Teezer and conditioner (I use Camille Rose) and work it through my hair. This is a major key to hydration.

Step 3: Style

I do my twist-outs with The Doux Mousse Def foam. My hair isn’t as weighed down and my twist-outs turn out amazing.

Deep Conditioning and other Hydration Needs

I’ve decided going into a salon is borderline required for me at this point. I need trims (which I’ll get to in a minute) and hydration steam treatments, it’s been helping my hair retain moisture even on weeks I do it myself.

Some Results

My hair has definitely grown like mad (you can tell by how much more black there is before the blonde) but I haven’t been super focused on length and length retention as much as I have been on finding a manageable and healthy routine for myself. Getting regular trims prevents further breakage, but as I didn’t have a hairstylist in Chicago I went to regularly (or really at all) I was only getting them back home in Florida when I got my hair dyed.

Check out my hair in the pictures below.

What’s your hair routine like? Like I mentioned before, what’s your go-to deep conditioner? Help me find one!
