Today’s post is all about my hair! I’ve been debating on where in my journey I should start this because there’s so much information to give. But I think I’ll just tell you what products I use on my hair and a couple of pictures of my growth over the past couple of years.
Step 1: Pre-Poo Routine
I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t pre-poo. With my thick and curly hair, it’s a must to get tangles and knots out before washing. I’ve learned that my hair has to be moisturized and detangled before I could think about cleaning it. I section my hair into four sections.Then I add all my pre-poo ingredients to a spray bottle and spray it in each section. I gently sometimes not so gently brush or comb each section until there are no more knots. My brush/comb should pass through my hair without any restraint. Below is a snap shot of the products that I use for this step.
Step 2: Washing & Conditioning
After my pre-poo, I get in the shower and wash each section once and apply my conditioner immediately after. I’ve had a bad experience with shampoo (my own fault though). I stripped my hair without moisturizing it first. Terrible thing! Anyway, I make sure that when I put my conditioner in my hair, I leave a little in. Basically, I use it as a leave-in conditioner. I love the Tresemme Naturals Conditioner because it gives the perfect amount of “slip” to get through my thick curls. It’s my holy grail product.
Step 3: Moisturize & Seal
