We’re at a Month now. Week 4, which I consider Step 14.
STEP 14: AT FOURTH WEEK CLARIFY & PROTEIN CONDITIONER
Start back over with Step 1 – Step 11 where you Clarify, Deep Condition with Protein and follow it up with a Moisturize Conditioning. You might not need to do the Protein (do test below) so just do the Moisturizing Conditioning (Step 5).
ALSO: Trim hair at this time, and do this while the hair is wet
On Days you need to wash but don’t have time for Deep
Conditioning, simply wash with a cheap Conditioner only
STEP 15 – SECOND MONTH: Alternate weeks between Moisture Deep Conditioning,
Hot Oil Conditioning and Protein Deep Conditioning/ Moisture Deep
Conditioning. REMEMBER: Always follow
Protein with Moisture Conditioning or it will dry out and break. You should
always follow your protein Deep Conditioning with a moisturizing Deep
Conditioning to maintain protein/moisture balance. Hair that is properly
proteinated absorbs moisture more efficiently because water
molecules bind easily to a sound protein structure within the
REMEMBER: Only comb hair when it’s really wet and comb from
the ends to the roots. Hold the relaxed
ends and gently comb through each section going up, without the tangles. Also finger comb is better than using an
STEP 16: BREAKAGE
Never let your hair get dry.
It is important to condition, condition, condition! Moisturize daily with a spritz (3 part water, 1 part oil).. Also,
trim your hair gradually to get rid of the straight ends — this aids in
helping the hair avoid breakage. Also, avoid breakage by using a wide tooth
comb, conditioning the hair regularly, and by giving your hair a hot-oil deep
conditioning treatment. This is essential to restore moisture and balance.
STEP 17: TWIST OUT
Make this mixture and put in after a freshly washed
hair. Only use it when you haven’t done
a conditioning in awhile and your hair doesn’t already have a lot of oil in it.
1 Tbs Coconut Oil
1/2 Tbs Aloe Vera Gel
1/4 Teaspoon Honey (NOT Tablespoon. Teaspoon. Use very
little–Like a Dab or else hair will be really hard)
1 1/2 Tbs Olive Oil or Almond Oil (Optional, but consider
using during winter months)
WHEN TO DO PROTEIN TREATMENT
If your hair:
(When Wet or Dry) Stretches slightly and returns
to its original length without breaking, you are balanced! Stick with
(When Wet or Dry) Stretches a little more than normal then
breaks, you need more protein in your regimen.
(When Wet or Dry)Stretches, stretches, stretches with no
significant breakage yet, add a bit more protein to your regimen.
(Wet)- Feels weak, gummy, mushy, or limp, you need to add
more protein to your regimen.
(Wet or Dry) Experiences very little to no stretching, and
simply snaps or breaks, you need to increase the moisture in your regimen.
(Dry) Feels rough, tough, hard, dry, tangly, brittle, or any
combination of those, you need more moisture in your regimen
