My updated hair regimen

Here's my new and improved regimen! Slight changes due to time/climate and new tools.

Lets start with products!
Shampoo: Shikai Moisturizing shampoo

Conditioner: I don't have a staple! I'm sort of a conditioner junkie. I use whatever is around. I don't cowash as much in the winter.

Deep conditioner: Giovanni Smooth as Silk mixed w/olive oil and honey

Leave In: Kimmaytube leave in, recipe as follows:
1 oz Knot Today Leave-In (or 2 tablespoons of YOUR preferred leave-in)
2 tablespoons of (Whole leaf version) Aloe Vera Juice
2 teaspoons of Castor Oil
2 teaspoons of Jojoba Oil

Moisturizer: water!
Favorite oils:

I use coconut oil pretty much every day for added shine. I just rub a little on my hands and apply throughout my hair. I also use it on my skin ;)
Olive oil: I use it in my DC and also to seal in moisture

Gel: Ecostyler w/olive oil

Wash 1x week with hair in 6-10 twists
Deep condition 1xweek with Huetiful hair steamer
Detangle after rinsing conditioner out
Retwist or braid with leave in conditioner and a little gel
Wear hair out 3 days, up remaining 4 days. (typically)

That's it. I spend no more than 5-10 mins on my hair daily with the exception of wash days.
Wash day is usually a two hour process.


  1. I just bought the Giovanni Smooth as Silk conditioner about a week ago and I am in love! I never thought about using as a deep conditioner but I think I'll give it a try. I love the way it makes my hair feel leaving it on for just 5-10 mins! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I like your regimen. It's like mine!! :-)

  3. The recipe for the kimmaytube, is that what's put into your spray bottle for wet sets and such?

  4. @hitgirl Im just using water in my spray bottle these days. I use an applicator bottle for the leave in. It's too thick to use as a spray.
