When I started my relaxed hair journey I didn’t know where to begin. So finding ladies on YouTube that shared their relaxed hair regimen was a blessing. My hair needed a solid hair routine to get my relaxed hair healthy again.
“What is a hair regimen?”
When ladies decide to take better care of their relaxed hair, the answer that I get after asking the question “what is your hair regimen” is always get the same response. Hair regimen? No I don’t have a routine.
What is a hair regimen?
Any set of rules about food and exercise that someone follows, especially in order to improve their health
I laughing out lout when I was reading the definition, because I always use the analogy of working out. When looking at a regimen for the hair, the food can been seen as the hair products that you will use and the exercise the methods/treatments that you incorporate.
“Go set some rules”
A hair regimen is just that! Set of rules using specific hair products and applying specific methods to your hair to maintain the health of your relaxed hair. Now before I continue, I just want to say that there is no “one” right way to get your relaxed hair healthy. If you look at how many different exercises and diets there are, you know there is no one way to improve your health. With that being said, there are some basic steps that you can’t skip.
How to create a regimen?
To build up or maintain the health of your relaxed hair it’s good to have a solid routine. Like how often do you wash your hair or how often do you do a protein treatment. There are many ways to take care of your hair, but keep in mind that it doesn’t have to be that difficult.
Have a consistent hair routine! Know what your hair needs on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.
In my next post I will go more in dept about how to create a hair regimen. I will use my own hair regimen as an example to give a better understanding.
