1) Shampoo (if applicable)
2) Co-wash
3) Wet your head, massage your scalp with your fingers, and condition the shaft
4) Deep-condition
5) Other

I'm a newbie and have gotten excellent advice on these boards re. products, but I would love to hear more about wavy regimens. Thanks!

    1) I use a sulfate-free shampoo once a week usually.
    2) I co wash about every other day.
    3) I usually try for 2nd day hair, so I usually don't wet and only condition the length, unless I've gotten really sweaty.
    4) I deep-condition about once a week, sometimes longer. So far that usually means I leave conditioner in my hair overnight.
    5) I like to put coconut oil on the length of my hair (dry) at night. I only do this I plan to wet it in the morning, becasue it's so easy for me to get too much.

    I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's answers. :bounce:

    Occasionally I can get 2nd day hair so when I do, I just spray my hair with MisterRight on those days.[/list]

    Here's what I'm doing (for the moment :laughing9: ):

    1. Use Suave Clarifying Shampoo once a week or less - depends on the stylers I'm using.

    2. I co-wash everyday, either with a conditioner or No-Poo.

    3. I wet my head everyday, massage and condition it as well.

    4. I don't deep condition often, but frequently while in the shower, I'll mix some condition 50/50 with honey and slather that on.

    5. I try to do an ACV rinse every other week or so.

    1) I shampoo with a no sulfates shampoo once a week
    2) I don't really co-wash with a separate conditioner. Every other day I apply conditioner in the shower.
    3) Every other day I massage the scalp while conditioning
    4) I deep condition about once a month but really just whenever it suits me (which isn't too often)
    5) Some nights I apply a little oil to my hair before bed.

    I use the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/DevaCurl-BLeave-In-p-434.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=devacurl-bleavein]B'Leave In[/buylink] occasionally. It just depends on if I grab it or not. I've not tried it as a styler although with the consistency that it is, I'm sure you could.

    1) Shampoo - twice a week with lowpoo unless I need it more.
    2) Co-wash - if I think I need my hair washed more than twice in a week.
    3) I don't do this one at all although I have this habit of scratching/rubbing my scalp before a go to sleep.
    4) Deep-condition - I did this once a week starting out, now it's more like once or twice a month.
    5) Other - OIL! I use jojaba oil almost every time a wash.

    1. Shampoo daily. Use a non-sulfate shampoo 99% of the time. Lately have been mixing a dab of shampoo with a gob of conditioner (lately Eluence or Suave Naturals) and "washing" this way.
    2. I never just do a pure co-wash, but see above.
    3. Never
    4. I don't normally have a problem with dryness so I don't deep condition that often - just as needed. Seems like I need to do this maybe once every three months or so.
    5. Other: I use a sulfate shampoo when my hair is feeling like it needs it. I do this maybe once a month, at most. I sometimes add honey to my final rinse. I have been styling with Paul Mitchell Round Trip and B&A Gel...loving this combo at the moment anyway!
    2/b-2/c - I shampoo daily with non-sulfate shampoos - right now am *loving* L'Oreal Everpure shampoo and conditioner
    For styling: homemade flax seed gel, Curl Keeper, and/or KCCC
    Current favorite product: *KCCC*!!

    1. I shampoo my scalp once in a blue moon. Once a month, maybe?
    I use a clarifying shampoo on my lenths whenever I find the ends are
    tangly/velcro-like. Hmm - once a week/every ten days?
    2. I CO every other day.
    3. Dry hair inbetween.
    4. I hardly ever deep-condition; my hair would probably love it, but I´m
    just not that much of a planner.
    5. Leavein every day during spring, summer and fall.
    Oil in the winter - to keep the flyaways at bay.

    My hair is two inches shy of BSL and so far this is working fine for my hair. In fact, come to think of it, my hair hasn´t behaved this good in a long time! Yippeee!

    1. I wash my hair with a sulfate free shampoo every other day. I condition when I wash my hair using a deep conditioner - but never a leave in. I always use a paddle brush on days I wash my hair to remove the build up on my scalp.

    2. I use a micro fiber towel for 10 minutes and then I either air dry it or use a diffuser.

    3. On days that I don't wash it I add gel to my hair and pomade on the ends.

    4. Once a month I scrubb my hair and scalp with baking soda to remove build up.

    5. I get my hair trimmed every 8 weeks to keep a great shape and cut off the ends.

    I CO wash with either an old Sauve Mango Peach, NG Awapuhi, or the old B2B Pom once a week and do an ACV rinse. Just water wash, massage scalp, and condition with any of the above the other days. Usually I try for 2nd day hair by spritzing with lavendar water or the All Spray recipe from the recipe forum, then pineapple for bed and sleep on a satin pillowcase. Some mornings it looks decent; other days I will rewet and start over.

    1)Shampoo: I've lo-poo'd maybe three times since I went CG last May. I needed to once, the other times I just felt like it because I like TJ Nourish poo. I don't have any reason to do it now though.

    2) Co-wash: Usually twice or maybe three times a week. Depends on my exercise schedule. If it weren't for getting really sweaty & frizzy from working out, I can get 3rd-day hair.

    3) Wet your head, massage your scalp with your fingers, and condition the shaft: Maybe once a week, but I do smooth CO over my scalp as well as the length.

    4) Deep-condition: I was doing a homemade DT every two weeks for awhile. For the past two months I've been using a lot of coconut oil in my hair (just scrunched in for 2nd day hair, or to smooth down frizz), or I use Ojon Restorative Treatment. Again, sometimes just to revive 2nd day hair, or as a smoother. Sometimes I massage my scalp and smooth more into my hair or comb thru more, and sleep on it. Sometimes I leave it in while I'm exercising or all day long.

    5) Other: Scalp massage with Ojon, or with jojoba/tea tree/peppermint oils, leave on overnight. ACV rinse maybe monthly or if I feel I've gone overboard with the oils.
    2-something? Coarse, medium underneath. Mid-back. On CG since 5/9/07.

    I'm new too, so still learning, but here's what I do so far (2b, some 3a, I think)

    1) Shampoo: haven't in about 7 weeks

    2) Co-wash: I've been co/lemon juice washing once a week. I think at this point, though, it's a bit much, so I'm conditioning more this week and just going to co wash next weekend. So, once a week ;)

    3) Wet your head, massage your scalp with your fingers, and condition the shaft: Every other day, mostly. I'm a SAHM so showering in the morning can be a challenge some days. I've done well with 2nd day hair, though still haven't figured out how to achieve curls without the halo. I loved Lavender Mist at first, not it frizzes me up. Still perks up my curls, but the frizz is crazy.

    4) Deep-condition: did it once while my hair was still overly dry. Don't know when I'll do it again. As needed, I guess.

    5) Other: Nothing else, I guess. Still learning what to do.
    CGing since 9/07, wavy 2 with some 3a and 3a tendencies (I think). Really I've always thought I was just wavy in the wrong places and unmanagable, so being curly is new to me.
