I have been natural for 2 1/2 years now. Believe you me, I am a product JUNKIE.. But, I am now in a place where I just want to retain length, so i have curbed my product junkieism and have a few things that are my staple. I have put my hair on a schedule so to speak. I henna once a month, and the rest of the most I co-wash or deep condition. Here are the product I use. This is my monthly staple.
