Kiddie Kurls Hair Regimen
The past year has been trial and error for me but I finally have a solid routine that is working so far. Every now and then I want to try a new product but the basics stay the same. Of course our regiment will have some differences because of our two textures. Again I plan to document her journey here so any and all advice is welcomed.
Weekly Routine (Basics)
Detangle (out the shower): Cheap conditioner wide tooth comb
Shampoo: Giovanni Smooth as Silk or Tea Tree Shampoo
Conditioner: Giovanni Smooth as Silk Conditioner
Leave in: Giovanni Direct Leave in (used for my conditioner mix)
Monthly Routine (Basic)
Deep moisturizing conditioning – ORS Replenishing Conditioner
Protein Conditioner - Aphogee
These are the basics that will happen every week and month. Right now I plan to experiment with current products to find the best daily moisturizer for her hair. Since I flat iron my hair once a year and air dry only, Kiddie Kurls' hair will not experience direct heat for a while. She loves to wear braid outs and rod sets so I plan to keep her hair in a textured state often. Once her new growth starts to come in I plan to use water and glycerin to manage it. This mix worked wonders for me during my transition. For now her wash day is Sunday and mine is Friday so both our strands can get the care it needs.
