Question: Is it bad that I don’t have a hair regimen. I think I’m 4b..maybe 4c. I usually just wash and deep condition every two weeks or as often as needed. Protein treatments like once every two months..but other than that, I don’t do much. Style and keep moisturized. Anyone else? Should i build a regimen and stick by it???
Answer: I really feel like there’s no one size fits all for everyone’s journey. Here’s a hair pyramid like the food pryamid that guides routines and you what you need to be doing. Most guru’s will give disclaimers on their hair regimens because everyone is at a different stage and might not invest in so many products/tools. As a rule of thumb I would wask weekly to keep my scalp clean to promoting growth ,deep condition, trim as needed, and avoid heat or use a protectant. You have a regimen if you are not seeing 6 inches of growth per year or three inches every six months then reevaluate the steps you are trying to take to retain length.
