Updated Hair Regimen, pt 2

Here's part 2 of my updated hair regimen. Read part 1 here!

Styling
: I always sprits my hair with water or a water/conditioner mix (I freestyle mix my own) before applying my styler. I mostly use a gel for hold when I do styles. But since I'm constantly reviewing products I switch it us as I go.

Water rinse: Something that I started with a few weeks ago after talking to Carriene from ILNH about my scalp issues is rinsing my scalp and hair with water. I usually do this midway through, so day 4-5 post-wash. I usually wash every 7-10 days depending on when I'm off and have time to focus on my hair. This has really helped my scalp. After rinsing I apply some more leave in condidtioner.

My night time routine hasn't changed much I still use my satin bonnet,scarf or sue maesta hood most nights. What has changed is that if I'm wearing my head out during the day I sleep with it in a pineapple on top of my head, I wrap a stretched rubber band around it and then wrap it in my scarf. The next day all I have to do is sprits it with water and fluff it out.

At this hair length it's all about hair care really to maintain my hair's health. I don't have a set routine when it comes to trimming, I usually trim when I think it's time. My last trim was about 6 months ago and I don't think it's time yet. I don't really experience split ends, I do find that my ends thin out a bit after a while and I do get single strand knots. I'm considering not trimming for a long time just to see how my hair reacts, I'll update you on that in the future. I do however focus on sealing my ends with an oil not only after washing and applying leave in, but daily.

I think that's it ;)
