For the deep conditioning treatment, I wet my hair with cold water, comb with a wide-tooth comb, dry it the tiniest bit and then finger through Renpure’s Argan Oil conditioner. Then I pin it up, put on a shower cap, and leave it for a couple hours. I don’t recommend using the conditioner as a stand alone, it always took the moisture from my curls leaving it dry and stiff.
Once I rinse everything out, I do what I do on a regular shower day. Organix Coconut Milk conditioner works wonders along with moroccan argan oil sprayed on after the shower. Shea Moisture’s coconut & hibiscus curl enhancing smoothie helps lock in moisture and style and separate your curls. Then a frizz product. Everything I use is basically about giving my curls all the moisture they need while maintaining a decent level of body. There are still a couple products and a homemade honey mask I’d like to try in order to boost my curls.
This is a little intricate but I’m extremely stoked because it’s taken me 21 years to comprehend that my hair is not straight hair and I can’t treat it as such. So now that I’ve worked with it and understand what my curls need, I’ve finally grown to love it. There are still things I need to work on i.e. styling but it’s been enjoyable to work with creating the best possible regime for my locks and finding what works or what doesn’t.
