How I Maintain My Curls - Natural Hair Product Review
Almost every time I go out, I’m stopped and asked what products I use on my hair. Well I’ve outlined all the products that I use in my hair regimen, how I use them, and how often I use them. There’s even a video below for those who prefer.
As I Am Coconut CoWash: The As I Am product line is new to my hair product collection. I’ve been using it for about 2 months and I’m in love! I use this co-wash about 1-2 times a week to get rid of product build up. The coconut co-wash leaves your hair clean and oh so soft, and it smells good too!
As I Am Hydration Elation: I use this product as my deep conditioner. I’ve been searching for months for a good deep conditioner that restores the moisture in my hair and I’ve finally found it in the Elation Hydration. Once again, I am impressed with As I Am and can’t wait to test out other hair products from their line. I use the deep conditioner after I co-wash and leave it in as I detangle my hair. In total, I let it sit in about an hour before rinsing out. I use this once a week.
Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner: Another great hair product line for natural/curly hair is Shea Moisture. I use their Restorative Conditioner as a leave in after I rinse out the deep conditioner. This is just another product to add moisture to my hair and sets as a foundation before I use the other products in my hair regimen. I use this 1-2 times a week; only after I’ve washed my hair.
Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie: One of my favorite products and what I consider to be the meat and potatoes of my hair regimen! The curl enhancing smoothie does exactly that; it enhances and defines your curls. I use this after the Restorative Conditioner to style my hair and then about every other day to refresh my curls.
Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk: This product is my life saver throughout the week and is just as important as the Curl Enhancing Smoothie. I use the product daily to style my hair. After my initial co-wash, deep condition, restorative conditioner, and curl smoothie are set in for my day 1 curls; I mist my hair with water and use the Curl & Style milk to revive my curls.
Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum: This is the very last product that I put on. It softens my hair, and gives it shine and movement. I like to use it when my hair is damp; opposed to using it when my hair is completely wet or dry. I use this serum every day and I can definitely tell a difference when I don’t use it.
Take a look at the YouTube video below. I’m discussing the products I mentioned above but I go into a bit more detail. I also give a tip on the best way to detangle your natural/curly hair!
