Over the last week I’ve had two different people ask what I use on my hair to keep my curls popping and well moisturized. Why not write a blog and share my secret with the world? During the warm summer months, I wash my hair damn near daily. I try to work out at least 4 days a week and I can’t stand sweaty hair. I have a hair regimen that I follow strictly everyday and my curls come out perfect every time.
The products shown from left to right are the actual order in which I use them on my hair. This was my first time trying the jojoba shampoo by Eden Body Works (a line created by a 13 year old girl) after falling in love with their tea tree shampoo. I will say that shampoo is the one hair product that I’ll switch up regularly since I have yet to find a standout brand that REALLY does the trick. Also I’m big on smell, so the shampoo has to smell good or I won’t like it lol. Go figure. Anywho, the Shea Moisture conditioner is the one product that really makes the difference in my hair. After two rinses with shampoo, I always condition my hair with this and comb through it while I’m in the shower to avoid detangling once I get out.
After I shower, it’s pertinent to use a leave-in conditioner so my hair will be soft throughout the day. I recently got hip to It’s A 10 leave-in conditioner (not pictured) which I now LIVE BY. I just spray a few squirts throughout my head and run my fingers through it. Then I rub a generous amount of KeraCare Butter Cream throughout my curls for added moisture. FInally I spray on the Shea Moisture Hold & Shine Moisture Mist which adds even more moisture and gives my curls more bounce. On days that I know I’ll be out in the sun, I spray on Carol’s Daughter Macademia Oil (not pictured) to keep down frizz and prevent the sun from drying out my hair.
FYI this is what I use when I’m washing and going which I pretty much do all throughout the summer. When the weather cools down more, I’ll start wearing twist outs and bantu knots more often since I won’t be about to air dry, and I’ll be sure to post which hair products I use for those as well. Hope this helps!
