I figured out my routine by research and experimentation. I looked for women with similar hair (4b and beyond, super dense, etc.) that looked healthy and retained length. I experimented with the hair care and styling techniques they used -- I kept what worked for me and chucked what didn't. Once I figured out a simple, low-manipulation hair care routine, I stuck with it.
