1. *I'm prone to seborrheic dermatitis, so you may leave out the African Black Soap (ABS) shampoo and proceed with regular sulfate free shampoo or a cowash.* Wash & scrub scalp with the only ABS shampoo on trouble areas and clean the rest with your normal shampoo (I'm using the *SheaMoisture 10-in-1 Superfruit Shampoo*). And rinse with lukewarm water after massaging scalp thoroughly.
Gently squeeze out the water from your hair, and apply your rinse-out conditioner to the ends of your hair and the length, I go near the roots but I try to avoid putting it on the scalp (I use the *GVP Conditioning Balm*). Clip your hair up out of the way with a jaw clip and continue with the rest of your shower.
After you're done shaving, exfoliating, etc. Take the clip off of your hair, part your hair with a rat tail comb or as desired. Rinse out the conditioner, first with some lukewarm water and then finally with some cold water and gently scrunch your hair while you're rinsing it out.
Step out of the shower, put your hair in a t-shirt plop for about 5-10 minutes.
Take it out of the plop and gently smooth on your leave-in/creme product, concentrating on the ends of your hair and then the length of the hair and a little bit near the roots. I use *GVP Conditioning Balm* as my leave-in. Then finally smooth on some medium-hard hold gel all over your hair and then scrunch as desired. Let your hair air dry or blow dry w/ a diffuser. If any crunch occurs, crunch it out and twist the the crunch out. Make sure all your products are free of silicones and sulfates or other trouble ingredients. *I use LA Look's Mega Mega Gel (yellow one)*.
