Warm Weather Regimen

This regimen is still in the making and subject to change frequently until I get it how my hair likes it.

Cleansing Routine
During the warmer months I like to shampoo weekly because I love being outside. As a result, there will be build up from sweat and outside dander and dust.

Conditioning Routine
All year long I deep condition weekly- This does not change.
Leave-In Conditioners

Moisturizing & Sealing
