My Wash Day Routine - Updated!

My Relaxed Hair Regimen | on HairliciousInc.com

Having a concrete wash day regimen is imperative to a successful hair journey! Through excessive trial and error over the years, I have managed to find a routine that has worked for my hair allowing me to get to my goal and maintain it. 

Giving my hair a weekly dose of both moisture and protein has allowed my hair to maintain moisture and strength while decreasing breakage - thus retaining length. Though I have my staple products, I like to switch up my products every now and then, but I always keep the same routine - no matter what. 

I have updated my regimen as I no longer co-wash on Saturdays. So instead of having 3 wash days, I only have two (Sundays and Thursdays) - max! I find that my hair no longer needs that extra dose of moisture. 

SUNDAYS


Sundays:
→ Prepoo with a light protein for 15-20 mins with a heat cap, rinse
→ Shampoo
→ Deep Condition with a moisturizing conditioner for 25-30 mins with heat, rinse
→ Apply Leave-in and lightly comb through
→ Air dry with the Scarf Method (if needed)
→ Moisturize and seal. Apply JBCO to my scalp in sections (optional)

THURSDAYS

Thursdays:
→ Deep Condition on dry hair with a moisturizing treatment/oil for 25-30mins.
→ Co-wash with a Moisturizing Conditioner
→ Apply Leave-ins and lightly comb through
→ Air dry with the Scarf Method
→ Moisturize and seal. Apply JBCO to my scalp in sections (optional)

Daily:

Others:
- Relax every 10-14 weeks
- Dust/trim when needed (approx every 4-6 months)
Baggy my ends when dry
- Light Protein Treatment 1x/week
- Clarify 1-2x/month
Black Tea Rinse for shedding (when needed)
- Wear protective styles 99% (buns)

  1. When you clarify, do you do it after the protein treatment?
