Maintenance Routine

Hey ladies

I know you all been wondering how I keep my curls up during the week.

Well at first I wasn't doing nothing but moisturize, seal, and then bonnet. By wash day my hair was frizzy and I had little curls here and there. My hair was far from how it looked from when I first set my hair. But I'm learning as I go along.

So for my go to protective I've been doing rod sets to more embrace my transforming naturalista. (hope you understand where I'm coming from) That way when I big chop I'll be more adaptable to my curls.

Now what I do is moisturize, oil, and then styler. I try to use a light moisturizer since I have fine hair. Something that won't weigh my hair down before I put anything else on it. My choice of moisturizer that I use are Elasta QP Olive oil & Mango Butter, my hair spritz, and various hair milks that I was testing out. Seal with a light but moisturizing oil. For example coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, or avocado oil. But in one of my recent swaps I received a butter from Honeychile Hairlove, that was very light weight in consistency and rich with natural oils. Coconut oil being at the top of the ingredient list. Afterwards I would use a styler. Which would either be Aunt Jackie's Curl La La, Giovanni Hair Styling Foam, and last Flaxseed gel. Now with the sample flaxseed that I was using it was wonderful but the new one that I'm using has not been working at all. I will do a review on it after my wash day Saturday. But the styling foam and curl la la was on point in the styling department! !!

That's it! I still do the l.o.c. method but in the last step I use a styler. My curls look fresh every day and they hold moisture very well!

Thanks for reading! :)
