Hair Diary || Working on a Non-Protective Style Regimen

If you've been following my hair diary, then you probably already saw this coming.  After years of protective styling in twists and a couple summers of experimenting with loose hair styles, the day has come.  I'm ready for a drastic regimen change.  The details are still being worked out, but for the last couple of months I've successfully been doing the following:

WEEKLY:
- Wash (As I Am Cleansing Conditioner or homemade honey shampoo) and condition (Tresemme Naturals followed by Aphogee 2-Minute Keratin Reconstructor or ORS Replenishing Conditioner) hair
- Finger detangle conditioner-soaked hair (~30-40 minutes)
- Rinse then seal 
- Plop hair for 20-45 minutes
- Braid hair into 8-10 sections for a braid-out the following day

DAILY:
- Wear satin bonnet or loose satin scarf to protect braid-out
- Fluff the next morning

MONTHLY:
- Switch finger detangling for comb detangling
- Deep cleanse my hair (Shea Moisture African Purification Masque or Dessert Essence Shampoo)

Stay tuned ...
