The week 2 natural hair regimen for dry hair is slightly different from week 1 because of the wash day. I alternate between shampoo and co-wash. If you have noticed, I don’t use protein treatment on my hair because I have a natural 4C hair, and we don’t need that much protein. Besides, the Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie already has a little bit of protein – just a minimum amount of it – and I use the smoothie as my daily moisturiser. That means I do not have to do any protein treatment as my hair is equally moisturised and strengthened every day.
So, let’s go into Week 2, starting from Saturday (wash day)
Unlike week 1, where I had to twist my hair before using shampoo, in week 2, it’s different. I will be using my As I Am Co-wash Cleansing Conditioner as my shampoo. This cleansing conditioner cleans my scalp and hair while retaining moisture – and it does make detangling such an easy effort.
So I take my As I Am conditioner and spread it on untwisted hair and I rub gently. I use my ‘soft water’ (citric acid or EDTA salt mixed with water) to rinse. After, I use my Faith In Nature conditioner or Naked Intensive Care Conditioner, then I detangle. This should take about 30 mins.
I can choose to twist my hair or leave it as it is. Then I wrap my hair in plastic cap and sit under a heat cap for 30 minutes. After this, I rinse out the conditioner, then I use my organic avocado oil, my Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, and sometimes my Shea Moisture Gel Souffle if I need extra hold, and then I twist my hair and let it air dry.
Week 2 wash day is a breeze. I spend about 2 hours or less on my hair compared to my week 1, which takes about 3 hours.
Sunday – Friday
My routine is pretty much the same like week 1. I will feel my hair to see if it is dry. If it is dry, I will spray ‘soft water’ on my hair, use a little of my avocado oil, add my Curl Enhancing Smoothie and sometimes my Gel Souffle, and I am done.
Sometimes, I re-twist at night, and sometimes I don’t. This all depends on whether I want to have curl definition the next day or whether I am feeling extremely lazy 😀
