My Winter Protective Regimen

Shampoo:

None

Conditioners (Used like Shampoo; leave in 10 mins and rinse):
Aussie Moist (added SAA and JBCO)
Redken Softer (added SAA and JBCO)
Ojon conditioner - any of them
Nature’s Organic Henna Conditioner

Deep Conditioner (Saturate; leave in a long time; comb in; wash a little out):

Aubrey GPB (Protein Balance Treatment)
Organix Shea Butter Conditioner (add aloe vera and cocnut oil)
L’Oreal’s deep nourishing conditioner

Henna:
Jamila Henna (fresh lemon juice and EO added) 3hour process, every other month

Additives (approx 3 tbsp added to different conditioners):
Silk Amino Acid (Protein)
Silk Peptide (Protein)
Jamaican Black Castor Oil
Unrefined Shea Oil
Pure Coconut Oil
Pure Aloe Vera

Leave ins:
Ojon revitalizing spray
Home made cream/pomade
Home made oil mixture

The Homemade oils and such:
Since I'm a bad product junkie I took my old oils and mix them together with my new natural oils to make a Great Oil for my hair after conditioning.

Old oils:
Lisa's Hair Elixir
Jojoba Oil
Tui Oil
EVOO

New oils:
Shea Oil
Black Jamaican Castor Oil
Avocado Oil

How to use:
I combined them all in a cheap spray bottle and I sprits it on my hair after deep conditioning 1x week. I wear a plastic heat bag on my heat and wrap it with a scarf, go to sleep. In the morning I have deep nourished hair for the winter, it's so hydrated and not greasy at all. I add my homemade creams (Shea butter, aloe Vera, avocado butter, mango butter, mix with Jamaican black castor oil and pomade) to my ends and edges as a pomade and if I wear a ponytail I add it wear the scrunchie will be tied. Spray on some Rosewater-Aloe Vera-Silk Amino Acid blend and go.

If any breakage occurred I use a deep protein regimen. Sometimes Henna and sometimes SAA with Wheat Protein, stops the breakage immediately and boosts growth. I learned this from the ladies on Curly Nikki’s website. I also seal it with coconut oil.

To Date: 9/9/09 through 12/09/09 - 4 inches of growth in 3 months!

Not sure why you need improvement if you had 4 inches of growth in 3 months.

It seems like a lot of products but if it is working for you, leave it alone.

Wow! 4 inches in only 3 months! Go you!

You sound like you have a lot goin on in your reggie, but it's obviously workin if you've got growth like that. If I were you I wouldn't change a thing.
