Since I relaxed my hair .. smh I have been neglecting my hair really bad. So today I decided to give my hair that extra TLC. I’m also going to change my regimen, but first thing first.

[1] #PrePoo: when I do a pre-poo treatment I will use an oil or a light conditioner. This time I decided to make a mixture of the Redken Real Control Conditioner with Coconut Oil. I wanted to try something new. In mind this mixture will give my hair an extra boost. Plus I don’t use the Redken Conditioner that often. In sections of 4 I applied the mixture to my hair, concentrating on my ends. When I was done it was time for my scalp. I applied a mixture of Jamaican Black Castor Oil x peppermint oil and then massage my scalp. Can you believe that I pre-poo for 1 ½ hour.

[2] #TheWash: I made sure that I rinsed my hair really good before I started shampooing. To wash my hair I used Creme of Nature Argan Oil Moisture & Shine Shampoo and followed up with a mini conditioner treatment. I used Organix Awapuhi Ginger Conditioner to bring some moisture to my hair. – it wasn’t really necessary because the pre-poo treatment really made my hair smooth enough -. I just applied a small amount to each section and let it sit for about 5 minutes.

[3] #DeepCondition: conditioning my hair is the best part of my routine. I used Mizani Moisturefusion Silk Cream Conditioner mixed with grape seed, castor and peppermint oil. It’s been a while that I mixed oils with a conditioner, but I’m back on it. I really like this conditioner because the texture is really creamy. Even when it’s mixed with oils, the conditioner it doesn’t loose its natural texture. I deep condition for about an hour without heat.

[4] #LeaveIn: it’s protein time!!! I went back to my first love Cantu Shea Butter Leave in Conditioning Repair Cream. This is a protein-based product, but it doesn’t leave my hair hard. After applying the cream I sealed my hair with Cream of Nature Argan Oil Treatment. I clipped my hair up and let it air dry.

When I was detangling my hair – before the pre-poo – I had a lot of hair loss. My hair was dry and weak I could tell. The prepoo mixture was a good combination. When I was shampooing my hair the hair loss was minimal.

I know that I have a hard time with retaining my length, but I’m still making bad decisions when it comes to my hair.

It’s time to do better and take better care of my hair
