Regimen + Goals

My Hair Regimen: I moisturize and/or oil my hair daily. As needed (usually weekly) I cleanse my hair and scalp with a moisturizing shampoo (or a clarifying one if there's build up). I do a moisturizing OR protein treatment with every shampoo. I stretch my relaxers 3-4 months.

My go-to protective/low manipulation styles: buns, braid-outs and halfwigs. In 2012 I want to start experimenting with more heat-free styles. I air dry most of the time and flat iron for length checks only.

I'm currently midback length (MBL) and actively working towards reaching waist length by my graduation in mid-2012.

2012 Hair Regimen: Operation Waist Length

Here is the regimen I plan to follow in order to reach my ultimate goal of waist length this year. My hair loves protein and natural oils. It thrives with low heat and low manipulation. This year I plan to be consistent with this regimen because results won't happen with random and haphazard methods. Products will vary as I'm trying to use up my stash but I've mentioned some staples. Here's the plan:

My 2012 Hair Regimen
1) Detangle and pre-poo with oil (optional) 
2) Use a moisturizing or clarifying shampoo
3) Deep condition with heat or a protein treatment with every shampoo
4) Apply leave-ins and proceed to rollerset or airdry
5) Moisturize and/or oil hair daily
6) Stretch relaxers for 3+ months
Other info
- Protective style most of the time
- Limited heat: flat iron entire length of hair for length checks only
- Satin scarf used for air drying and protecting hair overnight
- Co-wash, trim and baggy/greenhouse effect as needed

Tried & True Staples
Clarifying Shampoo: Quantum Clarifying/Chelating Shampoo
Deep Conditioners: Keracare Humecto (tub), QH Cholesterol, One n Only Restorative Mask
