Winter Hair Regimen!

My hair turned out really great today! So I'm pretty sure that I have my winter hair regimen together as well as what products to use.
Here it goes!

Winter Hair Regimen:
Co-wash every 7-10 days
Deep condition with every wash

  • Add deep conditioner, cover with plastic cap and wrap with towel

Twist hair with deep conditioner leave-in and shea butter
At night, re twist with shea butter, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a little bit of water
    or just moisturize hair w/ shea butter, oil, and water
Wrap hair in silk scarf

I'm also going to try ONLY Co-washing this winter and NO SHAMPOOING.

Products that I use:
Shampoo: Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo
Conditioner: Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner
Leave-in: Giovanni Direct Leave-in
Deep Conditioner: Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in Repair Cream
Shea Butter: Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque
Oils: EVOO and Jojoba oil

Here's some pictures of how my hair turned out using this regimen!

One of the best twist outs that I've had in a while!

Figuring Out My Hair

Lately it's been really difficult for me to figure out what my hair needs/wants. I've been trying to do twist outs (my signature hairstyle) but all of them have turned into a horrible mess. It's like I don't know my hair anymore! During the summer, I had the perfect routine and I was getting the perfect results with everything that I'd been doing. I'm starting to think that it's either the change in the weather or the fact that my hair is getting longer and behaving differently. Either way, I'm still searching for the perfect hair regimen for me, and I think I may have come up with a good winter regimen too.

We'll see!
I'll figure it out soon.
