Back to Basics
I am someone who likes a simple hair routine and feel like I have better things to do than mess with my hair. I was frankly getting tired of boundless products, techniques, and just plain fooling around with it. So I pulled out my trusty Curly Girl Handbook (2nd edition,) and have gone back to a simple routine. I'm just washing my hair with Sheamoisture shampoo and conditioner (natural,) drying it with a microfiber towel, and scrunching in some gel. (Garnier Fructis Pure Clean) I used to leave in a lot of conditioner, thinking it would be better, but after just going back to a more basic way to do my hair, it looks great. Plus, I'm saving product. Any one else thought of doing this? Any thoughts?

I'm the same as you with my routine!

I follow the second edition and just shampoo and condition (Shea Moisture too!), apply my gel, scrunch and then just leave it be. Depending on my mood, I'll either leave a bit of conditioner in or just apply a leave-in before the gel. But yeah - simple.

Even my second day routine is pretty no-fuss. Just pineapple, but in a satin sleeping cap, then the next morning give my hair a shake and, depending on how it looks, apply a pea-size amount of leave-in or just leave it alone.

I can't be bothered to do loads of different tips and tricks really. I'd like to try plopping one day, just to see. But I'm far too lazy for now haha.

I got frustrated with all the different products and what to use when, with what dews and temps. Layering different creams and gels.
Now I just co-wash or loo-poo, condition, rinse, apply a conditioner as leave in, sometimes seal with jojoba oil, plop and I'm done. And my hair is looking better every day.

I agree with everyone here. My hair has been in protective styles for a while now. I want to learn some hair styles, but I believe nothing beats a simple hair regimen. I usually shampoo and condition my hair, but I recently got into using a co-wash. I love the way co-washing makes my hair feel. But sometimes I feel like I'm doing to much. There are so many things in the natural hair community to do (pre-poo, shampoo or co-wash, condition and/or deep condition, wash n go or protective style, moisturize and seal daily), and it can be overwhelming for a newly natural like myself. I got my hair cut in a curly bob back in May, and dealing with my hair is a struggle. I have the second edition Curly Hair Handbook and pick it up sometimes and it helps sometimes. I would love to just achieve a wash n go and be done.
