Hair: routine!

I thought I would share my routine with people. I also participate on the website www.naturallycurly.com. A lot of people there have asked me about my routine, so I wrote it out.

I normally use Devachan products, but have found also found that occasionally using other products makes the Deva stuff work even better.

I use the No Poo once every other week. Use the same way you would use any other shampoo. Follow with the One Condition (OC). (Regardless of weather or not I use Deva, I NEVER EVER use shampoo. Shampoo makes my hair seize.)

I use "co wash" with the OC every other day, normally I only use my fingers to comb though--- sometimes but rarely do I use a wide tooth comb. (I find that it breaks up the curl; but if you feel like your hair is too tightly coiled, you might want to do this) I suggest that people try both methods and figure out which works best for them.

Rinse your completely. Wring out hair to get rid of the excess water. Use either a 100% cotton t-shirt or paper towels to dry your hair
***NEVER USE A REGULAR TOWEL!***


Work a little of the OC through out the hair. (If you part your hair, use your fingers.) Spray the Set it Free (SIF) in your hair. (I tend to start at the bottom and work my way through my hair and up to the top)

Then srunch, srunch, srunch!

If time permits; I use a diffuser or hood dryer (Clearly a weekend luxury)

When it's dry, I shake my head and fluff!
 Depending on how it dries (air dry or dryer) it takes any where from 1 1/2 hours to 30 minutes to dry.


On non-wash days, I use the Mister Right (MR) on non wash days. I spray it the way that I spray the SIF. Start at the bottom and work up to the top.

I am pretty careful when it comes to gels. I mix my gel with some conditioner. I don’t use mousse, also just to drying for my hair.
