Wonderful Fall/Winter Hair Regimen

Finally I found a really great regimen for cold weather! It took me a long time to find what's right for the summer but of course it was always too much hold and my hair was looking very dry in the winter. I'm always on a mission trying to get my hair looking healthy and attractive. So finally here's what works for my very thick, porous, dry, dull hair: I shampoo my hair once a week with sulfate free Organix Hydrating Tea Tree shampoo after my hair is soaking wet(because otherwise I can't get my scalp clean enough),I then condition my hair with Suave's Humectant moisture conditioner and use a wide tooth comb to distribute it, I leave it in for about 2 minutes, I then rinse it out, I then apply Garnier Fructis Olive Oil Deep Treatment and distribute it with a wide tooth comb, I loosely pile my hair on top of my head and go under the hooded dryer with a cap on for 15 minutes, then I rinse it out. I then apply Taliah Waajid Curly Curl Cream(LOVE THIS STUFF!!!) with my hair upside down, finger comb it upside down, scrunch excess water out with my hands upside down, and then wrap my hair in a t-shirt for 5 minutes. Then I remove the T-shirt and spray pink glosser over my hair and it stays soft, shiny, defined, long, and moisturized. On regular work days I just co-wash, add curly curl cream, and spray pink glosser. I have to co-wash every day, I haven't been able to achieve 2nd day hair yet.

    It's already too cold here to co-wash every day + I don't really have the time, even though I just have a twa. I'm really getting frustrated with my hair. It doesn't cooperate in the bonnet at night (I wake up with frizzy smooshed hair). It's really dry due to the weather change. I'm losing too much hair in this battle. I don't know if it's breaking or if I'm shedding or what but a sista can't deal.:banghead: Maybe I need to step it up because I've had such a smooth ride since my BC last November. Idk. Please share your secrets ladies. & keep in mind, I'm in between broke & poor.

    But Tanita what exactly are you asking? How to stop shedding?

    I switch around and experiment with products, so I can't say I have a regimen per say, but there are a few products that fare especially well for me in the winter, consisting of more protein, heavier oils, and less glycerin.

    Phytorhum shampoo
    CJ honey butta
    Darcy's pumpkinseed conditioner
    Sealing oils/pomades
    CJ repair me
    Pattern pusha
    high porosity (from coloring)

    Shampoo: Mop Top Gentle Shampoo
    Co-wash: Chistophe Robin Lemon Cleansing Cream
    RO: CJ strengthening, Kenra moisturizing
    LI: Jessicurl Aloeba
    DT: CJ rehab, Christophe Robin Prickly Pear Mask
    PT: SS protein treatment, Ouidad 12 minute
    Stylers: Jessicurl RR, SS Firm Hold Gel
