Hairstory, Hair Regimen & Hair Talk!

This has been a MAJA' request from my subbies, and I'm so happy to finally be posting my hair regimen!!! It has changed quite a bit since I first started my hair journey. I used to do this routine 2-3times a week and had a whole bunch of products in rotation.... BUT.... you live and you learn. I've learned how to listen to my hair,  my routine has simplified so much, and my hair is thriving! ENJOY!


Current Hair Regimen ~ Fall 11'

  • I wash my hair every Wednesday; middle of the week so my hair looks fresh for the weekend & on into the week =)
  • Trim/Dust ends every 2months.
  •  I moisturize daily & seal with an oil of my choice when necessary which is usually once everyday.

- Wash Day Wednesday -
1. Hot oil treatment for 30 minutes with an oil of my choice throughout the length of my hair, & on my scalp.

2. I then shampoo w/ Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo*** FAV or Oblicha Treatment Shampoo.

3. T-shirt dry & divide into 4 sections.

4. Apply *MOISTURIZING* DC throughout length of hair & scalp.

5. STEAM with DC for 1 - 1.5 hours , rinse and apply final rinse of cold water.

6. T-shirt dry,  apply serums/ heat protectant, detangle, Blow-dry or Air dry

7. Flat Iron, Pin curl, apply silk scarf/bonnet =)

*** I am extremely protein sensitive, so I Henna only when I feel its needed.


• I sleep in a silk scarf EVERY night. (Boo doesn't like it much LOL)

• The first couple of days, I like to enjoy my hair and wear it down. After I will keep my hair clipped up and my ends protected!

• I do not comb my hair much throughout the week to avoided unnecessary manipulation. I "finger-comb". I also rarely use a brush, and when I do it is a "boar bristle" brush.

• At night, I moisturize my hair , seal with an oil of my choice, pin-curl and cover with my silk scarf.
• Scalp massage 1x a week with oil of my choice.

I caved and gave into all the hype about here's my 1st box ^_^.

  • Jurlique Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer ~ Hands down the best sanitizer I've used so far. The safflower oil is a great moisturizing property that doesn't leave your hands feeling "greasy. Perfect for the upcoming cold seasons!

  • Jouer Lip Enhancer ~ MY SAMPLE BROKE :( 
I did get the chance to test it out and I love that it contains Shea butter, Vitamin E, and Jojoba oil. It really does hydrate your lips, and has a nice smooth consistency. It claims to have "maxi-lip", which increases blood flow to your lips without any stinging. I did not experience any "plumping" effect.
  • INCOCO Nail Polish Applique ~ I actually received the leopard print design I was hoping for, but these strips are not up to par. They claim to adhere and form to the shape of your nail but I did not find that to be true. 
  • LIV GRN Natural Eau De Parfum ~ This scent makes me so HAPPY. Its honestly my favorite sample from this birchbox , and I plan on purchasing the full size soon. I love the fact that it is all natural, and ec0- friendly. #WINWIN

All & all im NOT IMPRESSED...BUT... Ill give it one more chance, so look out for Octobers box! :)
