Now that summer is officially upon us, I notice that some people switch their regimens up during this time. I don't plan on doing anything different with my hair as far as my regimen goes. I don't change my regimen with the seasons but I will be enjoying my hair a bit more this summer especially since July is family reunion month for me and bunning is out of the question.
As I stated July is family reunion month and the South will be seeing me a lot. I will be going to the shop about twice during the month. First visit will be this week. My wonderful cousin/stylist is back to work. YAY! I'm thinking that since I will be headed down South that I will have her braid the top portion of my hair and leave the back down to show off some length. That way my hair isn't in my face.
In between visits, I will still be deep conditioning 2x a week, not using heat, and bunning.
Is my birthday month, Virgos Rule lol, and I will be touching up my color. Making sure that my hair stays moisturized and keeping up with protein treatments is what I do after highlighting my hair. Check out the post I have on that topic for more details.
There you have it. They're isn't too much that I will be doing.
What are your summer hair plans?

I was browsing through the Hairlista hashtag page on Instagram and came across a picture showing a slightly different bottle and different ingredients for the TRESsemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner. So I took a ride over to Walmart and sure enough there were 3 bottles of the new formula sitting on the shelf.

In almost 3 years I went from neck length to just about BSB. Taking pics is so helpful.

So today was wash day and it was one of my more successful wash days. For me being 18 weeks post, I need more wash days like today.
1. I parted my hair into 6 small sections. I have never done this before but washing my hair in smaller sections helped me to minimize tangles. Four sections is no longer good enough for me.
2. Taking one section at a time, I rinsed with water to loosen whatever dirt and product build up that is on the hair.
3. I took the advice of Age in Atl and smoothed the conditioner onto my new growth first. Next, I applied it to the length of the hair. Instantly I could feel my hair becoming detangled. I proceeded to rinse it out.
4. After rinsing I t-shirt dried for a little bit.
5. Applied Silk Dreams Vanilla Silk Cream Moisture Dream deep conditioner to my hair. I let sit in my hair for about 15 minutes with just a plastic cap. I sat under the dryer for about 20 minutes. I didn't steam this time because I already steamed once this week.
6. Rinsed the conditioner out in the sink after letting my hair cool off for a few minutes.
7. Applied my Shi-Naturals Protein Balance Leave-in (spray) and Garnier Fructis Anti-Frizz serum and proceeded to finger detangle. I only encountered one knot. Yay! As I continue to air dry, I will still check for tangles. Yes, I am paranoid. lol
As for the As I Am Coconut Cowash, I have completely changed my views on this conditioner. It cleansed my hair so nicely and didn't leave it feeling dry and stripped. The slip that this conditioner has is amazing. My hair was so easy to detangle. I can admit that my first go round with this product was all my fault. I definitely see the cowash sticking around for a long time in my regimen. Especially if I continue to have wash days like this.
