1) State of hair (relaxed, natural, etc.):
Relaxed
2) Current hair length:
30.5 inches (7-8 inches from classic. I think maybe a bit more)
3) Ultimate hair length:
Knee length. But I don’t think I’ll be satisfied at that length, but for now that’s my ultimate goal
4) Year end hair goal (length, density, softness factor, ends maintenance etc):
I have unbelievably baby fine hair that’s virtually weightless, so density is as good as it’s ever gonna get. I will possibly try to microtrim and maintain at knee for maybe a while year and see how my ends fair.
5) Method you will be using to cleanse your hair and scalp while retaining moisture:
Peppermint rose water rinse, and whatever conditioner I decide to use.

6) Number of times per week you will do this:
I tend to do this every other day or every two days.

7) Products and/or ingredients you will be using:

Peppermint extract
Rose water extract
Whatever conditioner I have that’s diluted
Almond oil for sealing

8) Anything you will be doing just prior or after (deep conditioning, hot oil, ayurvedic treatment, oil rinsing etc):

Rotate diluted shampoo wash. I take a spray bottle and dilute a dime sized amount of cheapie shampoo and spray my roots before I get in the shower. I rotate this weekly with cowashing whenever I feel I need it
9) Frequency of traditional shampoo use:

As needed
10) List shampoo:

V05, Pantene, anything Shea Moisture, TGIN, herbal essences. Whatever is on sale.

MUST ANSWER THE FOLLOWING 10 QUESTIONS
1) State of hair (relaxed, natural, etc.):
Relaxed. Fine. Some mixture of 3c-4a.
2) Current hair length:
31 inches. About 6-7 inches away from Classic. Possibly 8 inches. Idk. Haven’t measured. Somewhere a bit passed TBL.
3) Ultimate hair length:
Mid thigh.
4) Year end hair goal (length, density, softness factor, ends maintenance etc):
Keeping my longer lengths moisturized as much as possible.
5) Method you will be using to cleanse your hair and scalp while retaining moisture:
Co-washing. Maybe a honey mask since I have this extremely raw brand of honey.
6) Number of times per week you will do this:
Depends on how my scalp is feeling. I typically co-wash anywhere from 3-4 times a week.
7) Products and/or ingredients you will be using:
I prefer conditioners with cones in them. They’re very good at sealing in moisture particularly on my ends. I don’t mind the weighed down effect either.
8) Anything you will be doing just prior or after (deep conditioning, hot oil, ayurvedic treatment, oil rinsing etc):
Depends on the day. If it’s full wash day I’ll deep condition afterwards.
9) Frequency of traditional shampoo use:
Fairly often. I used a diluted shampoo in a spray bottle and spritz my roots only and then hop in the shower and rinse. Usually at the frequency I co-wash.
10) List shampoo:
Pantene Gold series I think.
Noughty sulphate free shampoo
Diluted shampoo cheap brand V05 or Suave with lemon juice

 
Interesting... I used to use Aztec clay in my hair to condition it... but I'm going to look for ways to cleanse my hair... I'll update this I find something...
