If you are trying to grow a healthy hair, you should have a regimen.

A regimen is an order you follow or rule guiding your hair journey.

I'll be showing you mine but dont make a mistake of trying to use someone else's regimen as it might not work for you.

We all have different hair types and what works for me might be different for you.

So, I advise you study your hair type and know what it likes and don't.

If your hair is like mine, you can try this regimen to see if it works for you.

I've made mistakes of trying to use regimens of famous naturalists that worked for them, but failed because everyone have different hair and some things might not work for you.

Without further ado, let's get right into this.

I'll be starting with my wash day.

1. I do protein treatment once a month before washing my hair with shampoo, you can choose to do it after washing but like I said earlier do what your hair likes.

I use organics hair mayonnaise for my protein treatment.

I section my hair into 4, spray my hair with water from my spray bottle and apply evenly till my while hair is covered. I wear a plastic bag over my hair and leave for some time.

I usually do my chores or any school or office work with the treatment in my hair.

I love for it to work well so I leave for an hour or there about.

My wash day is usually vigorous and time consuming.

I wash out the treatment off my hair with lukewarm water and follow up with my shampoo.

Your hair will feel very soft and healthy after this treatment.

2. Shampoo

I use Mamiya organics shampoo.

I chose this because it contains black castor oil and avocado oil.

The smell is not that great though but it doesn't strip my hair so I like it.

I do not use too much shampoo on my hair and I apply only on my scalp.

That is where the build up is so I don't apply shampoo to my hair.

I wash my hair in sections or jumbo twists. This prevents shrinkage.

If you keep natural hair you will agree with me that your hair shrinks after washing.

3. Deep conditioner

I use VO5 island coconut conditioner and extra virgin olive oil for deep conditioning.

I love the smell, but there are varieties of this with nice smell.

I mix my conditioner with the oil in a plastic bowl and apply to my hair (my hair is still in sections). I comb through with a wide tooth comb or finger detangle sometimes.

I put on my plastic bag and leave for 20 minutes.

After which I rinse off with water and dry my hair using an old clean tee shirt.

Note: Never use towel to dry your hair, use either a tee shirt or micro fibre towel.

I don't blow dry my hair, in fact I stay off heat completely as it can cause hair damage.

I've been natural for 4 years and I have never used heat on my hair.

4. I don't work on dry hair, so once my hair is damp (not completely dried), I massage my scalp with any essential oil. I use coconut oil sometimes.

I use virgin hair fertiliser on my scalp and edges.

This creme grows my hair alot.

5. I apply shea butter on my hair and twist it.

It makes my twists bouncy, shiny and juicy.

6. Onion juice

I always have onion juice in my spray bottle which I use to spray on my hair every evening. I mix my onion juice with coconut or almond oil as I don't like the smell.

Onion juice is great for hair growth.

I also include rice water and chebe powder with karkar oil in my regimen.

I don't use all the time though.

Lastly, I trim my hair every May 28th. I do this once a year.

This helps prevent breakage and split ends.

You can choose to trim your hair twice or three times a year, depends on hair.

My four years natural hair journey have been an amazing one, tough but worth it.

It is important to have a regimen you as faithful with, stop trying any product you see, instead stick to that one that works for you.
