Natural Hair Regimen & Staple Products

Hi all! As you may have noticed, I've transitioned to natural so my regimen has changed a bit. To make it easier to navigate, I have created separate pages for my relaxed hair regimen (posted here).


Wash days

*Recaps for every wash are posted on Wednesday,including products, process, and results. All my wash day recaps are posted here.

By spraying my hair with water + glycerin to soften and detangle, then apply either oil or a rinse out moisturizing conditioner on top.

Once or twice a week with a cheapy, rinse out conditioner or Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Cleansing CoWash

Once a week with a moisturizing deep conditioner and use heat via my heat caps or steamer for minimum 30 minutes.

Once a month with Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo to remove product build up and mineral build up.

With my fingers while applying conditioner, in the shower, and be styling. With a seamless comb when necessary depending on the style.

Before styling, I apply leave-in conditioner, serum to seal in moisture, and then a styler for hold when doing a twist out or braid out, I'm still learning how to style my natural hair and I like to keep things simple so I'm pretty boring when it comes to styling my hair. The styles I reply on are twist outs, high puffs, marley twists, and my least favorite, braid outs.

Straight Hair Regimen

• Shampoo to remove product build up for smoother, lighter results
• Deep condition with a moisturizing deep conditioner (my favorites are listed below)
• Stretch hair by twisting it and letting it dry for at least an hour
• Apply heat protectant leave-ins: Paul Mitchell Mirrorsmooth High Gloss Primer & Organix Brazillian Keratin Anti-breakage Serum
• Blow dry my hair with my handle-less dyer on the cold setting
• Flat iron my hair using the "brush chase" method with my modified Denman brush, pictured here

One A Day, fish oil, b-complex


I trim 1/2 - 1 inch when I straighten my hair to remove single strand knots. And also whenever I notice thin looking ends when I've twisted my hair. Basically, if it looks thin, it has got to go.

      That’s a great goal to have! Close one chapter before starting a new

  3. Hello,
    So you are no longer texlaxed? If so, why did you transition to naturals? I have been following your page for texlaxed hair and I was about to convert just looking at your long and lashed healthy hair. I have been contemplating in texlaxing my natural hair due to the fact that I no longer have time to cater to my natural hair so much anymore. I hate the bone straight look and do love some textures. Texlaxing would have been the go to for me. Can you, please tell me what I would be up against if I texlax? I wanna know the good, the bad and the ugly about it. Thank you!

      Hi Eve, I’m sorry for the late reply. No, I’m no longer texlaxed. I went natural to support/cheer on my mom on her own natural hair journey. Here’s my post about why I decided to go natural Transitioning Talk: Decision Made. For the good and bad of texlaxing, here’s a great post to check out: Pros and Cons to Texlaxing. Hope that helps!
