Deep Conditioning Routine + Getting Rid of Heat Damage
Every week (if i'm consistent or depending on what my hair is styled in) I like to wash and deep condition my hair.
Once a month I will wash my hair with a shampoo and every other time I would use a cleansing conditioner. I recently discovered the Shea Moisture High Porosity Line and I think I have found products that work well with my hair. Click this link to find out your hair porosity http://www.porosity411.com/. I have high porosity which means my hair doesn't retain moisture, leaving it to look frazzled and dry.
I use the shampoo, co wash, deep conditioning masque and the styling gel.
I love the deep conditioning masque in this line. After I rinse, my hair is moisturized and provides great slip for de-tangling. It doesn't leave my hair dry at all.
I completed my deep conditioning routine by using my new favorite leave in conditioner, the almond milk leave in by Carols Daughter and I did a twist out using the Shea Moisture High Porosity Styling Gel.
So if you're natural, I'm sure you know what heat damage is. Your curls isn't a big fan of heat. Now I'm not saying you shouldn't ever straighten your hair. One of the reasons why I love being natural is that my looks can be very versatile. If you want to straighten your hair, use a heat protectant, or figure out other routes to straighten your hair, such as doing a silk roller set.
It got to the point where I was straightening my hair every two weeks and when I would wash my hair, I slowly lost my curl pattern. Around July of 2016, that was my last extreme heat style. Then I decided that I needed to get my curls back poppin.
I was wearing more natural styles, but it was getting annoying dealing with the two textures, so one day I just decided to cut some of it off.
