Stop with the time consuming relaxed hair regimen! It’s time for a change.
That opening statement was for me! I’m tired of spending full days on my hair. Many days, I could have completed a shift at work quicker than it took me to do my hair. No more! My new regimen is simple. It includes a pre-shampoo treatment, a sulfate shampoo cleanse, a deep conditioning session, leave in conditioner and hair sealant.
A pre-shampoo treatment is generally done with conditioner or oil. Both work great and offer benefits. Conditioner softens the hair and oil protects the hair against hygral fatigue. However, both counter effects of sulfate shampoo.

Sulfate Shampoo & Hydrating Deep Conditioner
Many are against sulfate shampoo and I once was too. However, using sulfate shampoo on a weekly basis keeps my hair free from product buildup and my deep conditioners can properly hydrate my hair.
Product Recommendation: Nexxus Therappe and Humectress Combo Pack
Leave In Conditioner & Sealant
The final step of a relaxed hair regimen is leave in conditioner and hair sealant. Some leave in conditioners offer moisture whereas others strengthen. I prefer moisture based leave in conditioners to further increase hydration.
Hair sealants can be a liquid oil or hair butter. Oils are lightweight and won’t weigh down the hair with a light application. Butters are heavier and helps hair hold on to moisture longer. There’s no right or wrong, it’s about preference and hair needs. My favorite sealant is avocado because it hydrates, penetrates and nourishes.
