Lady Kinnks Regimen
Here are mine…
- Shampoo and Conditioner
For obvious reasons.
- Micro fiber towel
After washing your hair – micro fiber verses terry cloth towels prevent snags. You can find an inexpensive towel in the car supply section, or just use an old t shirt.
- Butterfly Clamps
Before styling – use clamps to part in a minimum of four sections
- Wide Tooth Comb
Helps rake large sections of kinks
- Rat Tail Comb
Use the end for neat parts. I’ve been known to be resourceful, and even use the end of a pen!
- Denman Brush
I was very skeptical about using this plastic brush on my thick kinky hair, but wow – now I can’t live with out it.
Add a few drops of oil to each section. My top favorite oils are jojoba, coconut, vitamin E, aragan / Moroccan oil or castor oil.
- Spray Bottle
I get the most twist-out definition by competing twists on dry hair with light sprays of water
- Satin Bonnet
No style is complete – without preserving it at night with a sexy, well not so sexy cover
What is in your natural hair essential kit?
My hair has been in a yuck for a while. My twist-outs lasted a day or so and kind of fell apart. I couldn’t figure out why, but I realize I deviated from what works for my hair, the SCOSS routine. I honestly couldn’t get the comb through my hair and experienced more hair lost than usual.
My newest SCOSS routine…
My hair routine is simple. I call it SCOSS!
How I detail my routine varies from week to week
When choosing products I am very conscious of price and hair impact!
Currently I am using…
Shampoo –TRESemme Moisture Rich Shampoo. (32oz for less than $5) I only require my shampoo to be inexpensive, and clear (to avoid product build up).
Condition – Just purchased DevaCare One Conditioner, I am
I don’t do it often. When I am not doing Twist-Outs I rock the ‘fro.
How do I do it you ask?
1. Wash hair and section it out by using braids. bantu knots or large twist.
2. Comb out, and blow dry each section
