My Regimen (In Nigeria)


I start off with a quick dry de-tangle before I either co-wash or shampoo my hair. I do this every week if in a loose style or every fortnight if in twists/twistout using whatever products I have on hand.

Every other wash I’ll deep condition with a moisturising deep conditioner and leave on the conditioner for about an hour or until when I’ve finished whatever chores or tasks I need to do. When deep conditioning I always shampoo first, deep condition and then go on to styling.

I’m still getting used to my new job and the weather so styling is not adventurous right now. I either prep three strand twists, normal twists or Bantu knots. After a few days humidity has gotten to the definition and I just bun or puff until the next wash day.

For moisture I use a leave in conditioner on damp hair, sometimes followed by a styler, afterwards I seal in with a light oil. I generally don’t moisturise during the week, sometimes I may put a bit of leave in on the sides if it’s feeling extra dry.

I don’t schedule trims, but I know I need one soon, I generally do trims while my hair is still wet and in twists about twice a year.
