Summer Hair Regimen and Challenges

 Not much is changing for my Summer hair care, but I thought I would still document for future reference. So in case y'all are wondering, here is my Summer hair regimen.


  • Deep condition on dry hair overnight- Currently using Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque and Olive Oil
  • Shampoo(in twists)- Using Shea Moisture- Moisture Retention Shampoo
  • Add Leave-ins(take the twists out)- AVJ Mix and Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie. Seal with Coconut Oil
  • Finger detangle
  • Braid, twist or band when air-drying


  • Morning or night or both- Moisturize and seal.
  • Pineapple hair or put in 4-6 twists/braids or bands
  • Sleep with Satin Scarf/bonnet or if hair needs extra moisture, a shower cap


  • ACV rinse


  • Puffs, pony's and various up-do's with loose hair. Too hot to wear my hair down.

Challenges for July and August:

1.) Finger Comb only

2.) Grow back my edges(on the right side)- Using Lily of the Desert 99% Aloe Vera Gel(the one you refrigerate) mixed with EVOO, Castor Oil, few drops of Eucalyptus and Rosemary Oil.

3.) Wear my hair loose- This is a challenge because I always revert back to twists during the week

4.) Work-out at least 3x weekly- This is one of the reasons why I am back to washing weekly. I need to get back in shape. I have been working out more since the beginning May and sometimes I skip days, but I am being more diligent about working out at a minimum of 3x a week.

5.) Drink 2 Liters of water daily- I have been doing this for a few weeks now, but I want this to become a regular habit for me. Need to stay hydrated and  get my skin back on the right track.

That's about it.
