New Regimen for Fall/Winter 2009

Twist Regimen:
Due to some heat damage after doing a "semi" blowout on my hair (I will not be doing another one for a very very very long time), I will be wearing my hair in twists, indefinitely. I cut about 1/2 of hair off to get rid of the damage but it will definitely grow back, plus I had some good growth last month! Protective styling is my main goal at this point. I actually started wearing more twists back in Sept but for only a week or 2 at a time but now I want to make it my main style. So here are the basics:
1. Twist hair using shea butter mixture (preferrably small or mini-twists, which take me about 6 to 8 hours)
2. Wear twists for 3 to 4 weeks (depending on how they look)
3. Co-wash (when desired)
4. Shampoo weekly (sulfate-free, natural shampoos hair loves them!)
5. Use stocking cap when washing twist to cut down on frizz.
5. Deep condition weekly
6. Protein treatment every 6 to 8 weeks (my hair likes protein)
7. Henna treatment every 6 yo 8 weeks (I have been slacking off lately but not anymore)
8. Hot oil treatment every 4 weeks (my hair loves this too)
9. Detangle hair gently and treat hair like a fine piece of silk!
This is definitely be easier than my previous regimen and I love how my hair looks in twists. I have become a better twister over the past 2 practice does make perfect!...Pics coming soon...
Main products/tools for now: Shea butter mixture (my own), water, oils (coconut, EVOO, tea tree & 7 Oil).
Suave Naturals & Suave Humectant conditioners, Aussie Moist conditioner, Ion Moisture Solution repair conditioner, Paul Mitchell Tea Tree conditioner, Hair Rules conditioner (sometimes), Burt's Bees conditioner (for detangling), Burt's Bees shampoo.
Denman brush, rat-tail comb, & Jilbere shower comb; hair clips, duckbill clips, hair pins; headbands, stocking cap, satin bonnet, & silk scarf.
