Been in that protective style for hella? Watch as DiscoveringNatural walks us through her step by step regimen for caring for her natural hair post twists. Major points- cleanse the buildup, strengthen your strands and moisturize your situation!
Here are the steps I took in cleansing my hair:
•Pre-poo with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and V05 Strengthening Conditioner for a couple of hours
•Clarify hair with Giovanni 50:50 Hydrating Clarifying Shampoo
Although I did not have a lot of buildup, I still felt the need to totally clarify my hair since it has been a while since I cleansed it.
•Used rinse out conditioner, Trader Joe’s Tree Tea Tingle Conditioner to invigorate my scalp and soften my hair. The clarifying shampoo does not contain sulfates, however, it can feel a bit hard to the hair. This conditioner helps to soften the hair again.
After protective styling, you should always incorporate a protein treatment into your wash day. This is because it will strengthen your hair and help repair any damage done to your hair strands. I decided to try out a new product, Aphogee Keratin 2 Minute Reconstructor.
