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).

Regimen

Wash days

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

• PRE-POO - Spray hair with rosewater & glycerin to soften and detange OR apply Lush's Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Ease to dry hair

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

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

• SHAMPOO - Once a month with Henna Sooq Mad Moisture shampoo bar.

• LEAVE-INS & STYLING - Apply leave-in conditioner or moisture milk + styling creme for hold when doing a twist out or braid out. 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)
• Apply heat protectant leave-ins
• Blow dry my hair with my RevAir dryer.
• Flat iron my hair using the "brush chase" method with my modified Denman brush, pictured here

  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!
