Cool 3c or 3c/4a routines for the noob!

I'll admit I'm being lazy here though I do read and read and...read and read and read everything about natural hair and what to do with it. Mind sharing your routines with me? Because it's Super Fun Survey Time!

LIST TIME.
  • Do you pre-poo or do you shampoo at all?
  • How often do you DC?
  • Do you wrap your curls or sleep on a satin pillow case?
  • HOW do you wrap your hair? Throw a scarf on as it is? Twist your hair first? Clip it back? Wet it and wrap it? (Saw someone do this on youtube)
  • Have you mastered second day hair? If so, how?
  • Do you co-wash? If so, how often?
  • What products do you swear by?
  • What do you avoid?
  • How do you moisturize between washing/co-washing? How often?

*don't know what pre-poo is, lol. I shampoo 1x week. The night before I do it, I leave coconut oil in my hair overnight.
*1x week
*sleep on a satin pillowcase
*don't wrap my hair
*I get 3 days out of my routine (wash, rake in proline & mousse)
*I don't co-wash. On day 4, I apply conditioner to detangle, rinse, rake in proline & mousse again
*all the ones in my signature
*sulfates, parabens, mineral oil, sodium hydroxide, heat ( I ALWAYS air dry)
*I don't, I get enough moisture from my products. If I don't like how my curls fall when I wake up, I just spritz a little water & shake my head a little.

LIST TIME.
  • Do you pre-poo or do you shampoo at all? Pre-poo/DT every week overnight w/coconut oil except for when I'm doing a PT. Yes I shampoo, every other week with SM shampoo.

  • How often do you DC? Every week w/coconut oil overnight & under the dryer w/coconut oil & SM condish after I do a PT.

  • Do you wrap your curls or sleep on a satin pillow case? I cover my head w/a satin scarf & sleep w/a satin pillowcase.

  • HOW do you wrap your hair? Throw a scarf on as it is? Twist your hair first? Clip it back? Wet it and wrap it? (Saw someone do this on youtube) I'm all into protective/low maintenance styling since I'm still transitioning & plan to do so for the long haul. So after I wash my hair each wk I place into bantu knots to air dry then cover w/my satin scarf for the night.

  • Have you mastered second day hair? If so, how? Since I'm so into PS right now I NEVER wear my hair out, so that's not an issue at the moment.

  • Do you co-wash? If so, how often? Yes. Every other week.


  • What products do you swear by? Check out my siggie.


  • What do you avoid? I really don't "avoid" anything. I try to stick to as all natural products as I can but in the end I use what my hair likes & works whether its 'all natural' or not.

  • How do you moisturize between washing/co-washing? How often? I moisturize daily. Am & Pm w/a distilled water & grapeseed oil spritz.
For whatever reason it keep saying my message is too short...maybe its bc I responded after the questions?

LIST TIME.
  • Do you pre-poo or do you shampoo at all? Nope. When I first started, I would sleep with coconut oil in my hair overnight. Then I realized my hair doesn't like oils too much.
  • How often do you DC? Whenever I think about it
  • Do you wrap your curls or sleep on a satin pillow case? I sleep in a satin bonnet
  • HOW do you wrap your hair? Throw a scarf on as it is? Twist your hair first? Clip it back? Wet it and wrap it? (Saw someone do this on youtube) Don't wrap or twist and not enough hair to clip
  • Have you mastered second day hair? If so, how? I rinse my hair daily (in the shower) and apply a cream conditioner or spritz with distilled water (for 2nd or more day hair. Most times I "don't do" 2nd day hair.
  • Do you co-wash? If so, how often? No, I do plain water rinses. I have fine hair and get product build-up easily
  • What products do you swear by? See my siggy
  • What do you avoid? Heavy oils
  • How do you moisturize between washing/co-washing? How often? I don't. My hair loves water and water-based products so the products I use daily takes care of the moisture.
I just BC'd a few months ago and I'm still learning about my hair. I also like to keep this regimen super simple so I don't have a whole lot of products going on. HTH!!

[*]Do you pre-poo or do you shampoo at all?
I prepoo every week with any conditioner mixed with agave or honey and olive oil. Sometimes I will sleep in it overnight before pooing. I poo with a non-sulfate poo.
[*]How often do you DC?
See above
[*]Do you wrap your curls or sleep on a satin pillow case?
I alternate between twists and curls. With curls, I wrap the edges of my hair and sleep on a satin case or a cap. With twists, I swoop into a loose pony on top of my head and wrap the edges.
[*]HOW do you wrap your hair? Throw a scarf on as it is? Twist your hair first? Clip it back? Wet it and wrap it? (Saw someone do this on youtube)
I do not twist or braid curls. I may loosely twist a few twists if I am maintaining a twist out.
[*]Have you mastered second day hair? If so, how?
I'm on day 3 hair now. I carefully define my curls with a denman brush and my fingers. I pin down my roots until they dry. I do not tolerate frizz on Day 1 LOL. A carefully defined look combined with my nighttime routine has helped me to have 5 day hair. I'm shooting for 7 day hair this week, but prob won't make it.
[*]Do you co-wash? If so, how often?
No. My scalp gets the itchies if I do.
[*]What products do you swear by? My HG products must be available on the ground.
- Aloe vera juice to detangle
- Kinky Curly poo, knot today (leave in for curls only), curling custard for curls
- V05 moisture milks or Trader Joe for rinse out conditioner.
- My version of the Kimmaytube mix for base leave in for twists only.
- Qhemet Biologics Amla cream plus a gel OR Jane Carter Curl Defining Cream for twists.
- Olive oil and coconut oil for oil rinses, sealing, SOTC, prepoo and adding to conditioners.
- Distilled water
- Apple cider vinegar, diluted, to clarify
[*]What do you avoid?
Protein, silicones
[*]How do you moisturize between washing/co-washing? How often?

- For curls I only use oil. For twists, I lightly spritz with water and massage QB and oil into the twists daily.
