When I look at people’s hair progressions, I think, man I should have started this healthy hair ages ago! However when I did start researching wow the level of information and time it appeared to take, was so overwhelming.
I have now started a hair journey and after months of doing what my hair crushes were doing, I soon burnt out…Saturday morning was a full
wash day. The prepooing, that you started overnight, shampooing, tea rinse,
jump out the shower, remove excess water, DC for 3 hours, jump back into the
shower, rinse out, ACV rinse, t-shirt drying, leave in, roller setting, sit
under hooded drier for hours then M&S, three times a day, after it’s gone
part Saturday midnight you are done! Phew!
Then you see others are doing this twice a week! Boy can it be intimidating, plus all the exotic hair products that you have to get!
You will be happy to know you can be on a ‘lazy’ hair journey
1. These don’t need to be done bi-weekly, once a week will do just fine
2. DC on dry hair, this avoids jumping in and out the shower
3. You don’t have to DC hair for 3 hours, with heat 15-30 mins will do just fine
4. You don’t need to do the tea rinses, ACV rinses, aloe vera rinse every wash day
5. You don’t need to roller set your hair every wash day
Your wash day can be as quick as this
Prepoo (15mins) >> DC on dry hair 15 - 30 mins with heat >> Shampoo hair >> T-shirt dry >> leave in and air dry.
M&S can be minimised to when you hair needs it and bag you hair at night to retain the moisture, can also count down the times you M&S.
Personally in between the week I protect style for the whole week, so hey, I don’t even need to comb my hair!
As for products, you don’t need the whole shop floor
1. An oil – for you prepooing and sealing
3. Moisturising Deep Conditioner
4. Protein treatment
5. Leave in conditioner
7. Heat Protectant
