My Relaxed Hair Regimen

August 18, 2014


Getting into a routine!

  • Shampoo your hair with a moisturizing shampoo 1-2x/week (Preferably sulfate free)
  • Use a de-tangling shampoo to finger comb and detangle your hair while wet
  • Use a moisturizing deep conditioner with heat (At least 45mins) after every shampoo
  • Always follow up with a leave-in conditioner
  • Use a water-based moisturizer 2x/day (Morning & night) then seal in the moisture with a natural oil
  • Always wear a satin/silk scarf or bonnet to bed
  • Relax at least every 8 weeks (If you can go beyond that, even better)
  • Do a protein treatment when needed (Whenever the hair feels very limp, mushy, overly soft etc.)
  • Trim when needed
  • Use a Clarifying shampoo (remove buildup) 1-2x/month (depending on the amount of product you use)
  • Use a wide tooth comb to comb/detangle your hair. You’ll experience less breakage

Here are the products I use to get me started!
I purchase these items varying from my local Beauty Supply store, Target, Walgreens, Ulta, Ricky’s NYC, and Trader Joes. Always be sure to shop for different prices and to sign-up for emails to receive coupons and discounts.

        1. Hi Jody, I work with Creme of Nature, we are their advertising agency. I want to make sure you know where to get Eden product. What area are you in? what zip code? I will let you know what stores carry the product near you.

          We’d also like to send you some Creme of Nature goodies. Let me know where I should send it.

          How did you hear about Eden? Were you ever able to try it?

          best, Sheila Conner Executive Producer Fluid



    1. HeY gurl! So I have some really bad breakage in the back and the front. I think it’s from all the working out idk. Do you know some good and reasonable priced products I can use to help me out? Or should I just go by the relaxed hair routine you have up? Thanks gurl!

      1. Hi love! I suffer from nape breakage myself (around the back especially in the winter) and the front pretty much all year round. What I use to help grow out these areas are castor oil and coconut oil. I apply the mixture directly to my scalp once every other day (since it tends to be pretty heavy) and massage for a good 10 mins. Sounds like a long time but it helps stimulate growth of hair folicles on the scalp. I’d also try to use little to NO heat on these areas even though they tend to be the most stubborn areas. Also, try to prevent tension (for example: tight braids, slicked back pony tails, cotton headbands). I hope this finds you helpful. Remember: The winter is one the harshest of seasons for us Hairlistas. Be sure to moisturize, seal with an oil and protect from the nasty conditions of weather that mother nature throws @ us <3
