Building a hair regimen is important for the overall health of your hair.  Find a hair routine that works well with your hair and stick to it.

However if you notice negative results, for example a product NOT adding moisture to your hair, this is when you can change things up and try a different product.

8 Simple Things To Remember When Building A Natural Hair Regimen:

1.  USE A SULFATE FREE SHAMPOO:  because it will not strip your hair of its moisture. Weekly activities like working out and product build up may cause clogged pores on the scalp which in return deteriorate hair growth.

To avoid these from happening, clean your scalp and your hair at least once a week to achieve the maximum hair growth.  You can also use an apple cider vinegar rinse, which cleans scalp and hair pretty good.  You can also opt to co-wash with a moisturizing conditioner if you prefer a No poo regimen.

2.  USE A MOISTURIZING CONDITIONER:  that has great slip (makes hair slippery) to help you with your weekly detangling sessions and makes your hair soft.

3.  USE A LEAVE IN CONDITIONER:  It help restore shine and lustre to dry or dull hair.

4.  USE A HAIR MOISTURIZER:  Water should be one of the ingredients listed on the bottle.  Another great ingredient is aloe vera.  They are the most moisturizing for your hair. You can also make your own homemade spritz.

5. USE OILS:  Great oils like Extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil and jojoba to seal in moisture when you moisturize your hair.

6. TWIST YOUR HAIR AT NIGHT:  To protect your hair from knots and tangles while you sleep.  Your hair will be stretched as well by morning.

7. USE A SATIN SCARF WHILE YOU SLEEP:  Protects hair from loosing its moisture, prevents knots and tangles.

8. Have a summer and winter hair regimen because your hair will have different needs when there’s a change in the weather.

Other Treatments To Include In Your Natural Hair Regimen:

  • Deep Conditioning Treatments to improve the strength of your hair.
  • Pre Poo treatments to help protect the hair from excessive drying when you shampoo.
  • Hot oil treatments for soft hair and to replenish hair with moisture.
  • Protein treatments adds strength and restores protein back into the hair that’s lost during color treatments,frequent heat use etc.  Hair is about 70% keratin protein by nature so if your hair is not damaged as such, you would want to reduce the number of times you do a protein treatment.
  • Scalp massage treatments to stimulate growth.

  1. I have been natural for almost 6 years now and I get to that point where I just cut it off and start all over again I have had barber style fades, I have been completely bald, and I have had a shoulder length natural. I get to the point where I don’t know what to do with it as far as styles go and increasing my length. So I get frustrated and chop it all off and start over again. I am now in the process of growing it out again it is short and I am at that point where it is to short for styles and to short to do anything with. Very frustrated !!!

  2. I recently went to a salon for the first time in my life( for fear of other peoples hands in my hair) however it was time because I needed help. I have been transitioning for the last two years but it seemed like I could never retain moisture and my hair was breaking badly but like my worse fear it was a huge mistake. I went into the salon with shoulder length hair and came out with the shortest hair I have ever had in my entire life. Since I now have the BC that I was not quite ready for I have no choice but to move forward; however, I need some help on creating a hair care regime that fits me and my lifestyle and I am not quite sure where to start.

    Please help

    Yours truly,

  4. I BC my hair last year and went to a salon this year in April for a trim. The stylist did not know how to handle my hair therefore, a barber had to cut my hair. After leaving the shop, I had less than an inch of hair. I am a 4C (I think) I am trying to get my hair to grow and it is doing ok. I want to do different styles but my hair is not cooperating. I need so guidance about the products I need to use to get curl definition. The only style I wear is a tw afro. How do I get some kind of curl definition with my hair.
