I am starting the New Year off right... I have the pre-poo in now... Then I am going to wash, deep condition, roller set (To stretch my hair) and put in mini-twists. My goal is to make this my regimen every three weeks for the entire year. I am going to enter the next decade with APL (at minimum) hair!

This is the second week I've done a pre-poo before washing. I add glycerine to the moisture drenched pre-poo. My hair looks better the moment I put the mixture on. It feels so good. I MUST make time for a pre-poo!

Thank you for notification, Aggie! Glad to see you!
Hello! Good morning. So glad you popped in to say hello! What are your thoughts on adding many things to the hair routine? My hair routine was pre-poo with flax seed, rosemary and fresh aloe rinse for 30 minutes. Wash using @soultanicals shampoo. Then add the pre-poo to my dc. I also do onion/garlic/cayenne rinse. Sit under the streamer again with it. Rinse and plait my hair after using rhr LCO method. I take supplants. Collagen, MSM powder, Vitamin D, C, I take iron for terrible anemia, Calcium, Red Clover, Foti…. The list goes on.

I’ve been on the board heavy and so I’m getting all of these ideas to add to my existing thing. I just began drinking fenugreek water on Sunday. Am I doing too much? I also made a bee DIY oil with a ton of ingredients/5 or 6 different oils. I also want to baggy my hair. At one point should one say…. Ok. You need to pump ya’ brakes!! Lolol. Is it ever too much? And my hair is at my ears. Type 4b/c. Low porosity.

I really can’t say whether or not you are doing too much. What I can say is that you seem excited and motivated. Excitement and motivation will take you to places that plain old knowledge can’t. You need enthusiasm and you have it.

My suggestion is to identify and document, in writing and by taking pictures of your hair, the current state of your hair.

Next, identify and document your goals for your hair. As in, write down what you want your future hair to look like.

Regarding products, you may want to determine why YOU are using a product. And you may want to identify and write down what you expect the product or ingredient to do for you [your hair].

You want to be able to track if a product is working for you or not. That may mean using only a few number of products/things initially, observe and record how they are working. Keep doing the same thing for a minimum of two weeks to a maximum of 1 month. Determine what changes you plan to make and identify the why. Document your decision and make a change. Change out the product, use it, wait for any changes by observing and documenting. Add in a product and use it, wait and observe your hair. Do the same thing when adding or removing processes.

I recommend adding 1 new product and/ or process every two weeks. The goal is to be able to identify what product and/or process is helping or hurting your hair.
If you post pictures and hide your face to protect your identity, the ladies here can better help you. They are all great resources.

I would suggest you start with a shampoo, a deep conditioner, a leave in product and some kind of low manipulation, protective style. From there, you can determine if you need to increase the topical protein application in your hair.

Ultimately, you will need to learn your hair. Then you will need to determine what is best for your own hair.

Wowwwww. This was absolutely amazing. A million thank yous! I love all of this. They “Why” is of paramount importance. Like anything else in life. Sis. I need to apply this to other areas in my life. That was deeper than you probably realize. As simple as that word is. It’s huge.
I should say that I am not new to natural. I big chopped in May 2018. It was disastrous as I was relaxed from the age of 9 to 49. So I knew absolutely nothing about hair. I was so disheartened because my hair was a matted, knotted/tangled brittle mess until last year. I finally found Soultanicals and fell in love. I began loving my hair last fall. Had a another bout of depression and dropped the ball.

I’m back and really taking care of me as a whole and my hair. Girl I’m event meditating to sound bowls now every morning. So I’m in a better place emotionally.

I will have my daughter take pics soon and I will post tomorrow. Again, thank you for your assistance.
