My Regimen

Gotta keep it simple!! Here it is!

Note: If I co-wash, then I start with the “Condition” part.

Pre-Poo

Coconut oil and an oil with ceramides (e.g. kukui nut oil/hemp seed oil/safflower oil)

Sometimes I will add honey or conditioner, based on what my hair needs.

I sit under the dryer or go about my business with a cap on my head. I leave this on for about an hour.

Wash

Initial wash is with a non-stripping sulfate shampoo (I like Amla Legends Hair Filler Body Wash)

GVP Tea Tree Oil Shampoo (as needed for scalp therapy)

Alterna Caviar shampoo

I clarify with Alterna Life Clarifying once a month.

In-Shower Conditioner

Ion Extreme Moisture or

Alterna Caviar Sea Silk Conditioner

Deep Conditioner and Porosity Control Rinse

Silk Elements MegaSilk Moisturizing Treatment or

KeraPro Restorative Treatment

I alternate weeks in which I use these deep conditioners. I steam the product into my hair every week for about 50 minutes, then rinse in cool water.

After the deep conditioner treatment, I apply Roux 233 Porosity Control on my hair, leave it for one minute, then rinse in cool water.

Leave-Ins

Rollersetting/Air Drying Weeks

  • Alterna Caviar Photo-Age Defense (this product goes on first, per product instructions)
  • Alterna Anti-Aging Texture Cream
  • Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Anti-Breakage Spray
  • Carol’s Daughter Monoi Sacred Strengthening Serum

Direct Heat Uses

  • Alterna Caviar Photo-Age Defense (this product goes on first, per product instructions)
  • Alterna Caviar Perfect Blow Out
  • Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Anti-Breakage Spray
  • Carol’s Daughter Monoi Sacred Strengthening Serum

Once hair is blow dried, before flat ironing I apply Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray

Daily Moisture

Alterna Anti Aging White Truffle Hair Elixir or Amla Legends 1001 Oils Night Wrap Cream

Seal with light oil afterwards (usually kukui nut, grapeseed or vitamin E oil)

Protein Treatments

Aphogee Two-Step Protein (the week before relaxer)

Aphogee 2 minute Keratin Reconstructor (as needed)

Co-Wash (Occurs when needed)

Alberto V-05 Strawberries and Cream Conditioner

Alterna Caviar conditioner

Then proceed to leave-ins for airdry, rollerset or blowout.

Dusting Ends

About every two to three months or as needed with professional shears.
