Quarterly Hair Pic and Hair Care Routine

Length is 33"

  • Wash hair every 2 to 3 days so not to strip of natural oils

  • Rotate the following products each wash to prevent buildup

  • follow wash with camellia oil on ends to prevent dryness and split ends

  • ACV (apple cider vinegar) rinse every 1 to 2 weeks to restore ph balance
  • Dry with Aquis Lisse Crepe microfiber towel and turban.  Microfiber is gentler on hair, and is super absorbant.  Cuts down drying time.

Styling / Color

  • Straight down, braids, or buns using hair sticks, Amish hairpins, or scrunchies
  • Control baby hairs with Nature's Life Aloe Vera Gel with Lavender.  Works as well as any hair gel, and good for your skin too.
  • Combs - I use a plastic wide- tooth when hair is wet, and for spreading conditioner.  I use boxwood combs on dry hair because wood is less prone to cause static. Static creates dryness and splits!
  • Color touch-up every few months with Redken Color Fusion, Double Lights (for use on dark hair.  For light hair, use Double Blonde.  Double Fusion lightens your hair up to four natural levels.)
