2014 Protective Styling Regimen

Summary:

Shampoo every 10-12 days

Trim via search & destroy method ½ inch every 3-4 months

Moisturise & Seal every day

Cleanse:

I ALWAYS pre-poo with a pre-treatment prior to the shampoo wash. This protects my hair during the wash and reduces split ends. I also detangle my hair thoroughly prior to washing.

I do a clarifying wash every 2 months to remove product and silicone build-up.

Condition:

I deep condition my hair after my shampoo wash to replenish softness and  flexibility.

When I need extra protein, I use a stronger protein based product before I deep condition.

Styling:

I will continue protective styling using a mixture of braided styles and wigs.

Maintenance:

I moisturise and seal every day and apply the Shea Goodness Growth Support Serum to my scalp every night. I cover my hair with a silk bonnet for bed every night.
