Help to get your Hair Journey started on the right Track..

If you want healthy hair you have to have the right routine
that will give your hair the maintenance it needs.

Here are a few basic products you will need to stock up on:-

You Will Need:

1 Clarifying Shampoo (ph balanced between 4.5 and 5.56.5.)
1 Moisturizing Shampoo (ph balanced between 4.5 and 5.56.5.)
1-3 Moisturizing Deep Conditioner (for co-washing days)
1 Protein Deep Conditioner
1 Leave-in Conditioner
1 Moisturizer
1 Natural Oil (to replace the sebum in the scalp)

Wide tooth comb
Satin/Silk Scarf and/or Satin Bonnet
Satin/Silk Pillow case
Extra long hair pins

*Note everyone's hair is different and so you can custom these steps to fit
your hair and your lifestyle.
*Try to get to know your hair and see what works best.
*Be patient as this may take some time (1-2 yrs) !

Here is a sample routine you can follow:-
  • - Shampoo your hair with a sulfate free moisturizing shampoo 1-2x/week (this depends on the health of your hair, may need to shampoo less )
  • - Use a moisturizing deep conditioner with heat (minimum of 30mins) after every shampoo
  • - Always follow up with a leave-in conditioner
  • - Use a water-based moisturizer 2x/day (morning & night) then seal in the moisture with a natural oil
  • - Always wear a satin/silk scarf or bonnet to bed - (or you can leave hair open, but use a satin/silk pillow case to sleep on)
  • - Touch-up at least every 12 weeks (the longer you can stretch it, the stronger the new growth)
  • - Do a protein treatment when needed (If the hair feels very limp, mushy, overly soft etc.)
  • - Trim when needed (every 6-8 weeks no more than 1/2 and inch)
  • - Use a Clarifying shampoo as it removes buildup 1-2x/month
  • - Use a wide tooth comb to comb/de-tangle your hair. This will lessen the breakage.
