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.
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.
