Creating A Natural Hair Regimen

So, you’re wanting to go natural, but don’t necessarily know where to start. The first thing you should do is make sure you’re willing to commit. Healthy natural hair doesn’t happen overnight. The second thing you need to do is work on creating your own hair regimen.  A regimen is the steps you take to keep your hair healthy and moisturized.

how to create your own hair regimen

5 steps every hair regimen should include:

Step 1: Cleanse
Step 2: Condition/detangle
Step 3: Moisturize
Step 4: Deep Condition
Step 5: Frequency isn’t necessarily a step, but how often you cleanse, condition, moisturize, and detangle your hair does have an effect on your hair health.

When choosing products, it’s important to pay attention to how your hair responds to each product. There are some products that may not work for your hair type, texture, or porosity. It’s also important to know that one day you may use a product and find that it no longer works for your hair. The more you use a product, the more you hair gets used to it.  Eventually, you’ll have to switch your regimen up and that’s fine.

My current hair regimen:

  • Sunday is always my deep condition/wash day. Right now the Aussie Mega Moist line is my go to to cleanse, detangle, and deep condition my hair.
  • Every night, I put castor oil on my scalp and ends before bed.
  • On Wednesday I refresh/re-moisturize my curls as needed. Most of the time, I just spray my hair with water.
  • Saturday night, I coat my hair with coconut oil to prepare for Sunday’s wash day.
