MY NATURAL HAIR WASH DAY ROUTINE

So, I have natural type 4 hair, and mainly do video content what I do to my natural hair. But since Lockdown to be honest I have been creating more blog content for natural hair. So I am going to share with you my natural hair wash day routine. In the order how I do things

WASHING MY HAIR

I mainly use a clarifying shampoo to cleanse my scalp and hair. I often shampoo my hair twice. As I feel that shampooing my hair once my scalp is not throughly clean. So I do this process and rinse my hair twice.

DEEP CONDITIONING

I try to deep condition my hair nearly every wash day, unless I am using a particular brand product that does not have a deep conditioner in the collection. I used to alway deep condition my hair with heat using the hooded hair bonnet hair dryer attachment. But recently experienced heat damage along my edges as I had the the hair dryer on the middle setting thinking it would make the deep conditioner work better, and did feel pain around my edges, and have experienced a little hair loss along my edges.

So right now I deep condition my hair with heat the old fashioned way, by putting the deep conditioner on my hair then a plastic cap or a plastic bag, then I wrap a towel on my head. I keep it on my head for under 1 hour. This way my head heat is insulated and that is how I deep condition my hair with heat. My head gets hot quick in general. So this works good for now. Then I rinse out the deep conditioner. I am thinking to invest in a hothead and a steamer in the future.

STYLING MY NATURAL HAIR

Below is the process and what I use

WATER BASED SPRAY

I use a water based spray made up of Rose water and a oil. Oils that I have use is Olive oil and of recent Vitamin E oil. And if I make aloe vera gel from the leaf, I would add this too. I will be doing a future post about Aloe vera. And spray all over my hair. Finger combing my hair gently.

LEAVE IN CONDITIONER

A Leave in conditioner, which I will use in my hair when it is damp. And again I finger detangle my hair. I don’t really use a comb in my hair.

OIL

I will add a little oil to my hair again, but not too much on my scalp.

HAIR MOISTURISER

Similar to a Leave-in conditioner, but I like to use a hair moisturiser. So I know my hair is fully moisturised before I start to style my hair

STYLING

Now I will proceed to styling my hair. Most of the time I will do either flat twists or chunky twists or braids. Which I will keep in my hair for a couple of days or until my next hair wash day. As I do not do much with my hair, I enjoy wearing head wraps, I have so many, but it is just a convienent style for me. And helps me not to over manipulate my hair. If I have my hair out I mainly have it in a Twistout style. You can see the many many hairstyles I rock on my Instagram page. I have many hair tutorials on my Youtube channel. Also before the year is over I will be doing updated hair videos.
