Nightly Routine:

My nightly routine is protein based. I am experimenting with this for 1 month to see if this helps with breakage and the health of my ends.
  1. Spritz hair lightly with Infusium 23 Repairologie Leave-In Treatment.
  2. Apply Sebastian Potion 9 Wearable Treatment throughout the hair.
  3. Moisturize with Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Moisturizer.
  4. Seal the ends of my hair with coconut oil and baggy.
If I know that my hair needs to be special for the next day, I will seal the ends with coconut oil and do a twist out or a roller set.
Weekly
  1. Co-wash with a cheapie conditioner once a week (i.e. Suave, Vo5, etc)
  2. Deep condition once a week with Organic Root Stimulators Replenishing Conditioner
  3. Spritz hair with a light moisturizing leave-in conditioner (i.e. Diluted Suave or Vo5)
  4. Moisturize with Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Moisturizer.
  5. Seal with Coconut Oil
  6. Air dry in a pony tail
Monthly
I will usually blow out my hair or do a roller set once a month. I add heat protectants to the regimen at this point to protact my ends.
  1. Clarify with Organic Root Stimulators Uplifting Shampoo (2x)

  2. Deep condition with Organic Root Stimulators Replenishing Conditioner

  3. Spritz hair lightly with Infusium 23 Repairologie Leave-In Treatment.

  4. Spritz hair generously with Chi Thermal Protectant

  5. Apply a dime size amount of Chi Silk Infusion through out hair

  6. Set the hair in rollers and sit under dryer or blow the hair out for a straight look.

Tyra Banks hair…Do you care?

OK, I guess I should just get this over with. The Internet has been buzzing about Tyra Banks debuting her real hair. Well, a lot of us have been doing this for a long time, but let me give her the shine she so desperately yearns for. Thank you ET for providing this clip.

Not too shabby, Tyra. I hope it’s healthy!

Let’s get to the important part of her show. Tyra then allows the studio audience to feel through her hair to make sure there aren’t any tracks, or anything else fake to enhance the look of the hair. Whatever! My issue is the handling of her wet hair. Her stylist is all up in there with a small tooth comb. Wet hair and small tooth combs don’t mix! That’s a recipe for hair breakage and a bit of pain if you ask me. Check out the stylist getting it in on her hair…Lawd have us mercy…

Tyra Banks Gets Real About Hair at The Insider

How I handle my wet hair
  1. I saturate my hair in the shower with a conditioner while it is wet.
  2. After a few minutes, I go ahead and separate my hair (with fingers) into four (4) sections.
  3. I start to detangle each section with a wide tooth shower comb. After each section is nicely detangled, I go ahead and rinse the conditioner out of my head. If I detangled my hair properly, I shouldn’t have to run a comb through the hair again.
  4. Out of the shower I apply my leave in conditioner. I always choose a leave in that has excellent slip like Sebastian Potion 9 wearable treatment. This allows me to finger comb and style as necessary without ripping through my fragile wet hair.
  5. I will then allow my hair to air dry in two braids or a loose bun.

There should be minimal hair loss if I am extremely careful. Treat your hair like fine silk and NEVER do the following:

  • Comb wet hair with a fine tooth comb
  • Flip your wet hair over and begin to rub it with a towel. Not only will your hair be in knots, but you will probably find lots of strands of hair in the towel.
  • Be rough! The ends of your hair are the oldest and you are trying to retain them in order to gain length. Handle them with care 🙂

Ciao for now!
