2014 Regimen

I know when the new year rolls around a lot us tend to reevaluate our regimens. Some of us do an entire regimen overall and others make small tweaks. There isn't much of change to my regimen for the new year. I'm falling into the small tweak category. So hear it goes. Lately have been lazy about doing my midweek washes. If I do do them I find myself rushing through it. This is where the minor tweak comes in. I have been seeing videos and reading blogs about ladies who have been trying out deep conditioning their ends only to help with taking special care of them. When I first started seeing this I dismissed it. But got to thinking and decided to give it shot. Mainly because I have been slacking on my midweek cowashes. I just haven't been feeling up to putting in the work after coming home from work. The washing, deep conditioning, etc have just been put on the back burner couple of times. I have found that it can't continue to happen. Cowashing has been helping me manage my hair during this stretch. Now that I am 19 weeks post I can't slack on my regimen. Since I don't feel like having a full wash day routine on my midweek wash days, I'll substitute deep conditioning all of my hair to just my ends on those days. Our ends are the oldest and most fragile part of our hair doing this will help with minimizing breakage which is great for the length retention that we are all seeking. Below is what my regimen will be at least until the summer. Maybe then I'll go back to deep conditioning twice a week then.

Tuesdays: Cowash Day

TreSemme Naturals or Hairitage Hydration Pink Grapefruit Punch Conditioner
Deep condition my ends only with which ever conditioner I grab
Detangle using the Hairitage Hydration Soft Coconut Marshmallows Leave-In
Seal with Organix Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum
Air Dry and then style

Friday: Cleansing Condish or Shampoo wash

As I Am Coconut Cowash or Purgasm Cocoa and Yogurt Shampoo Bar
Deep Condition w/ steamer w/ a Shi-Naturals or Silk Dream Conditioner
Detangle w/ Soft Coconut Marshmallows Leave-in
Seal with Organix Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum
Air Dry and then style

That's it! Did you make any new changes to your regimen for the new year or did you stick to a "if it ain't broke don't fix it" mentality?


  1. I love these changes. I'm excited to see if they help!
