My regimen [Updated]

I’ve had to update my regimen to suit the climate here in Shanghai. My washdays are simpler, less frequent and I’ve added heat to my regimen.




Updated regimen:


Week 1

• Wash with a clarifying shampoo to remove product buildup
• Protein treatment to repair and strengthen hair
• Moisture treatment to rehydrate hair after the protein treatment
• Moisturize using LOC method
• Blow dry and flat iron as this helps deal with the humidity

Week 3

• If there's any product buildup, wash with clarifying shampoo
• If there's no buildup I will just deep condition hair
• Tea/apple cider vinegar rinse
• Moisturize
• Air dry hair (I only use heat once a month to avoid heat damage)




Daily/When needed:

• Spritz hair with a mixture of water and leave-in conditioner then seal with oil


Products I like:

• ORS Olive oil creamy aloe shampoo
• ORS Olive oil replenishing conditioner
• ORS hair mayonnaise
• Hask keratin protein treatment
• Henne Natur henna
• Nature's choice apple cider vinegar
• Kinky Curly knot today leave-in conditioner
• Shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie
• Eco styler olive oil gel
• Lily of the dessert Aloe vera gel and juice
• Black Jamaican castor oil
• Crede coconut oil
