My regimen

I'm almost completely natural!!! I still have a couple relaxed strands dangly helplessly off from my natural, but it's all good. I'll get rid of them soon because I'm so irrtitated at looking at them when I try to style my hair. I'm trying my best to stay away from the flat iron and blowdrying it because I don't want to go through any heat damage. SO here is my hair regimen. Tell me if i'm doing ok

1. Co-wash with VO5 Strawberries and Cream every 2 to 3 days
2. Add Pantene Relaxed and Natural conditioner to hair and detangle with fingers
3. Wash out 85% of the conditioner, blot dry and add Mane and Tail leave-in conditioner and detangle again
4. Add in Sebastion's Wet gel and scruch into hair


Ok...that's it!! Seems pretty simple, but I don't know. Feels like i'm missing a step somewhere. WHat do you think? DO you think these are good products to use because I just started to use them and I somewhat see a difference...a good difference but my hair still gets dry afterwards and it's frustrating. So I don't know what to do. I'm scared to try other stuff because I don't know what to look for. Let me in on your regimens please!!
4a, OS Cottony, Spirals and Waves randomly scattered over my head
Check me out!! I have a fotki!!

Due to a serious hiatus and complete laziness (lol), my fotki albums are all locked. When im up to updating I'll have them opened for you all to view. Until then...no peeking :) Thanks!

    Your process sounds good. If you're still getting dry hair, check the ingredients of the product you use. If there's any products ending with -cone or -xane, any mineral oil or other synthetic oil, those could be drying your hair out. Often what we use on relaxed hair may not work on natural hair. Natural hair begs for moisture and a moisture balance with the atmosphere. Relaxed/straight hair needs moisture too, but needs a barrier from moisture in the atmosphere. HTH and congrats on your transition.

    Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
    Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
