Here is my current hair care regime:
Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Shampoo (every 3 days)
Vinegar Rinse (1 Tbs. Apple cider vinegar to 2 cups water)
EVOO (applied to scalp and hair length the night before shampooing. I braid my hair and sleep on it. Use a sleep cap so you don't muck up your pillow). I also use a VERY LIGHT amount of this on my ends, when needed. Be careful. It's easy to over oil.
Rooibos Tea (1 tea bag to 1 cup of water, steeped, cooled and placed in a spray bottle). I spritz this on my scalp after washing my hair, and on my scalp each night before bed.
BBB (Boar Bristle Brush) I make sure to brush 100 strokes per night, before bed.
Satin Pillowcase - Is gentler on your hair and reduces the amount of lint your hair collects. I was brushing out a lot of lint, each evening, before I switched.
Last night my husband took me out to dinner to celebrate my retirement. I wanted my hair to look pretty so I kept it braided all day.
This gave me lovely braid waves.
BTW, my hair has grown 1 1/4" so far this month. I will have the husbeast measure my length on July 1st and report back.
