Natural Hair Regimen (Updated)

As you continue on your hair journey you will realize that your natural hair regimen tend to change from time to time. We bloggers stress that you should find a system and stick to it. But, while this is true we are not prisoners to our hair care routine. The basics should be the same but you can experiment. Its your hair and journey after all isn't it? Enjoy it!

Ok, let me share my hair care regimen with you (in a nutshell) - lol! This is what I do and what works for me. You do not have to do this but you should experiment and see what work for you.

Pre-poo (every two weeks):

I like oils that are easily absorbed into dry hair; so, I opt for coconut oil. Also, honey is one of my favorite natural humectants and preservative. I know you are not to use humectants in dry winter but all year round honey is good to me. Hence why I stress 'know what your hair needs'.

Prepare (measure according to length of hair):

Coconut oil

Cheap conditioner (for added slip)
(Mix together until it’s smooth and apply tips to roots. Massage scalp, twist and pin away. Continue until the hair is done. Leave in for about 30 minutes.)

Cleanse (once a week):

I only use sulfate free shampoos. This is because it doesn't strip the hair of the natural oils we secrete or strip away all of our pre-poo work. My favorite shampoo is Shea Moisture Curl & Shine Shampoo or the Shea Moisture Retention Shampoo. They leave my hair soft and clean.

Condition (once a week):

After cleansing I condition with a deep conditioner or my deep conditioner mix.

Favorite Deep Conditioners:

Aubrey Organics Balance Conditioner

Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque 

My Deep Conditioner mix: 

Tresseme Naturals Condition or any Herbal Essence Conditioner

Jamaican Black Castor Oil or Olive Oil
(Mix – Apply – Leave on for 15 to 30mins)


After a cleanse:
I first squeeze as much water as possible out of my hair. I always moisturize using the LOC method. (Liquid first then Oil then Cream).

  • I divide my hair into 6 sections and apply my leave in of choice to moisturize my hair. Right now my 2 favorite leave-ins are the Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk and the Karens Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia leave-in.
  • I apply my oil of choice to seal that moisture in. My mom brought me a bottle of black castor oil from Jamaica so that is what I am using right now. I have been dying to get some real black castor to seal my hair and make it stronger. Thanks mommy! Lol!
  • I further moisturize and seal in all that goodness with a water based cream moisturizer or butter. This also masks the smell of the castor oil.

Spritz with water  and re-moisturize if needed.

Style with style cream or Gel. I rock braid outs most of the time or Twist&Curl styles. I am not a lover of gel but I use a little or use Cantu Coconut Curling Cream before braiding or twisting.

  1. I don't have a regimen yet! I've been transitioning for 18 months and my hair has been hidden almost the entire time! I kinda regret the fact that I didn't BC early on, it would've been soooo cool to wear a fade! Oh well.

    At the end of this month I will be cutting off the rest of my permed hair so I've been racking my brain to figure out what my regimen will be. Here's what I've come up with:

    -Wash/Clarify with Bentonite Clay once a month
    -co wash once a week with Hello Hydration
    -apply hair rules leave-in conditioner
    -air dry to 70% and do a protective style for the week (box braids, twists, updo using marley hair) using whipped shea butter
    -spritz daily with a moisturizing spritz, distribute cream through the hair as needed

    How does that sound? Is it too much? I don't want to over do it!

    1. Hi Love, I think that is ok except that you did not mention any oils. After you apply the leave-in, you should seal with an oil then apply your shea butter and style.

      Keeping it simple is always key. Read my post on how to moisturize using the LOC method:

  2. So here is what I would do:

    Cleanse- Shea Moisture Curl &Shine

    Condition- Hello Hydration TRotally twisted

    Leave-in : Cantu Shea Butter and Argon or jojoba Oil

    And STYLE!

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs Hi Loves, I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation. In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs. Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?

Lupita Nyong'o Attacked by Dencia (Maker of Whitenicious Bleaching Cream)

Lupita Nyong’o, the gracious black beauty was an honoree at the Essence Women Luncheon a few days ago. In her speech, revealed her struggles being a black girl to womanhood and how images of the supermodel Alek Wek made her see beauty in herself as they both shared the same 'midnight' complexion. She then pulled out a letter a fan wrote to her thanking her for appearing on the scene just in time before she ordered Decia's Whitencious bleaching cream.  “Dear Lupita,” it reads, “I think you’re really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight. I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.” Who or what is Decia's Whitencious Cream you might ask? Dencia is the Cameroonian-Nigerian singer 'was' of dark complexion but been using bleaching cream to lighten her skin to a 'very pale' complexion. Now I urge you to look up FOOL in the dictionary and her pale
