dry climate routine
Hi all, I wanted to share what has worked for me living in a dry climate, and hope to help peeps who are in the same situaiton. The biggest change was to cut gylcerine out. Even in 40-50 dews it doesnt work, maybe its just me. My standards are products that are non-chemical, and gylcerine & protein free. I've found the best oils are pure argan & johoba oil for refreshing & night time. Spraying water or touching my hair makes frizz. Frizz is an issue for me, but I think for me, I just have some, and thats ok. I use alaffia everyday coconut lime shampoo/conditioner. The shampoo is a great lather, the conditioner has no slip, so you just have to adapt or not use it. I detangle with kinky curly knot today leave in, and finish with homemade flax seed gel with some johoba oil blended in the gel when i make it. I work outside, and when i do it sucks some moisture away even in braids ot when wearing hats. IIm outside for hours. But it is better than what it used to be! for dry scalp, pre poo w coconut, rinse with apple cider vinegar/water or cowash with some salt in it (sugar feeds yeast dandruff-something i learned). Have yet to find a deep conditioner and cowash thats chemical & glycerine free. I tried as i am's cowash and didnt like it. It also has some weird chemicals in it.
