Haircare Days

I wash my hair every 7- 10 days and I will try and post about the process on each day. You can find these posts under Haircare Days.

  • 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 pre-poo using a specific pre-treatment for at least 30 minutes.
  • Detangle
  • Deep condition with my microwaveable heat cap or steamer for minimum 30 minutes.
  • Apply leave in conditioner, then style
  • To style I either stretch my hair using the tension method and warm air or will do single twists on damp hair

Maintenance and Styling

  • I style my hair based on my mood, schedule and state of my  hair. Mostly I use perm rods, blowdry, twist-outs or twist n curl
  • I spritz my hair with water every other day to keep it moisturized. If I’m trying to maintain a style I apply a cream based moisturizer instead.
  • At night, I moisturize and seal with oil and depending on the style I’m trying to maintain I either pineapple or wrap my hair. I then cover with a satin scarf or bonnet.
  • I try not to comb through my hair outside of my haircare days. I detangle using a mixture of my fingers, the Felicia Leatherwood Detangling Brush and a detangling product. I take myself of to my stylist for a trim every 3 months
  • If I’m bunning or doing an updo I keep my edges smooth using water, a gel and a silk scarf. On dry hair I use Design Essentials Edge Control.
