Update Q3 – 2015
healthy relaxed ‘texlaxed’ hair regimen
It’s been a while that I have updated my hair regimen. I’m still creating the solid regimen and fighting my laziness.

I must be my daily routine, but yeah laziness – somebody help me – The routine is to moisturize my hair every night. Then I skip a night I then make use to moisturize in the morning before styling my hair. At the moment Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter hair moisturizer and ORS Hair Lotion are my favourite for moisturizing
After moisturizing I like to seal my hair. Coconut Oil used to be my number one oil to seal, but that has changed. At the moment I use Almond Oil to seal my hair.
Prepping my hair for a wash has been beneficial. Most of the times I use oils to pre poo. My favourite combination is Jamaican Castor Oil for my scalp & Coconut Oil for my hair.
My weekly wash routine is a must. I won’t go longer than 2 weeks without washing my hair. Depending how I treated my hair during the week I will choose a shampoo to wash with. Lately I try to use more moisture based shampoo, because my hair needs the moisture.
Something that I need to do more is co-washing.
After washing my hair it’s a must to deep condition. Most likey I will use a moisture based product or a light protein conditioner. To boost the treatment using my hooded dryer or steamer is always a plus.
- Clarify treatment
- (hard) Protein treatment
- Search & destroy method (getting rid of split ends)
I’m still figuring out when I should trim my hair. Most people will say every 6 month, but split ends is my down fall right now. Every 3 months I will do a length check to see if a trim is needed.
- Bunning (90% of the time). To be honest I;m getting tired of the bun
- Braiding or twisting hair style
- Self-made wigs
