Every season, my hair decides to reject every go-to product i’ve been using and I have to find a completely different routine with completely different products! It’s an annoying (and expensive) process! But, I seem to have found a routine that my hair is in LOVE with, for the moment anyways.
This routine has my twist-outs and wash & gos shiny, moisturized and – my favorite part of all – elongated! The shrinkage is always real, but these products seem to help eliminate the shrinkage and retain some length.
So without further ado, here it is.
- Camille Rose Naturals Sweet Ginger Rinse
- Miss Jessie’s Leave-In Condish
- Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
- Mixed Chicks Coil, Kink & Curl Styling Cream
- Eco Style Gel with Olive Oil
Here’s What You Do:
- Wash hair with the Sweet Ginger Rinse. I LOVE this rinse. I’ve been using it for a long time now, actually. It’s made with castor & aniseed oil, is sulfate free, and smells great. I’m not even going to lie to you, this shampoo is pretty expensive. But it’s worth every pretty penny.
- After rinsing hair, apply Leave-In Condish and then detangle using a wide tooth comb. This leave-in conditioner provides great slick and makes it very easy to detangle my hair.
- Part hair into 4 sections, and apply coconut oil to each section. Comb through each section. Now I switch back and forth between coconut oil and jojoba oil. To be honest, I had to stop using coconut oil for a long time. I felt like it was just sitting on top of my hair and eventually felt like it wasn’t moisturizing my hair AT ALL, so I had to let it go all Fall and all Winter. I decided to just try my luck and go back to it, and it felt like a whole new product! So i’d say, if you’re one of those people on the fritz about coconut oil, take a break from it for at least 6 months or so and then give it a try. But jojoba oil has always held me down as an alternative!
- Use the Coil, Kink and Curl styling cream with Eco Styler to style as desired. Like I mentioned above, I use these products for both wash and go’s and twist outs. I apply the cream first and then go back with the gel for wash and go’s. With twist-outs, I apply a good amount of styling cream to the hair, comb through, and then apply a small amount of eco styler right before I start twisting. The cream makes/keeps it soft and defined, while the eco styler fights against the humidity and my hair doesn’t get too poofy and frizzy.
