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.

EbonyCPrincess Rollersetting Challenge Update (month 1)


January was the first (of 6) months of the rollersetting challenge.

So far the purple Hot Tools rollabout dryer been a great investment. I use it for everything (DCing, rollersetting, air drying etc).

Revisited flexi-rods this month and I love 'em!!

Heat usage: Minimal. The flat iron has only been used on my leave-out hair when half-wigging...haven't even looked at my blow dryer, and gave away the curling iron this month :)

After a month of trial and error, here's the setting regimen:
1) Shampoo and deep condition
2) Leave-in Aphogee Green Tea and Keratin, Mosturize with Lacio Lacio
3) Rolletset using plain water
4) Sit under dryer for an hour
5) Apply serum and wrap

Been tweaking the products and techniques this month too!
Three January Favorites:
  • Nioxin Thermal Bliss Heat protector
  • Keracare Intensive Restorative Masque, Hydrating Detangling Shampoo, and edge tamer (I've liked every keracare product I've tried)
  • Aveda Brilliant Emollient Finishing Gloss (My CHI SIlk Infusion ran out so I decided to give this a try)
Looking forward to more roller-setting and flexi-rodding in February. But most of the time I'll continue protective styling with a bun.

  1. Love this update, my favorite part is that you've been successful not using direct heat and it hasn't even been a struggle for you. Honestly, you are a born rollersetter, the first few times I tried I didn't even FINISH! Lovely setting regimen as well!

  13. If you want to take it more seriously, you ought to stick to a posting schedule, so your
    followers know once the new image will likely be updated. Individual inner
    photographer: Business owners, in general, aren't good with social networking sites and hence the client bases suffer.

    Are you thinking about bringing video media for your social marketing table.
