Update: Terri's Summer Hair Care Regimen (Week 2)

Hello Kurlee's! It has been about a week since my initial Summer Hair Care Regimen post! So I wanted to update you guys on what I did differently with my regimen.

First of all, I am absolutely in love with my semi-mini twists. With this style  I know exactly what I'm surprises. I usually wear the back of my hair pinned up and the front out and drooping down. If I'm going for a more elegant look, I will let pieces hang down the sides as seen in the photo with the Duke Blue (had to give a shout out to my alma mater) Mullet Dress. If I'm going for a more classic look, I will pin up the sides as seen in the photo with the black pencil skirt and heels. The great thing about this style is it is very low maintenance. I style my hair once a week (on wash day) and to refresh the hair, I spray lightly with water and apply Kurlee Belle's Tropical Oils Blend to seal the ends.

As mentioned in the initial post, every week I deep condition my hair to combat frizz and dryness from the summer heat. This week, instead of doing a deep treatment, I decided on a hot oil treatment using Kurlee Belle's Tropical Oils Blend. The essential oils blend was applied to dry hair after submerging the bottle in hot water (Check out a previous post that explains the difference between Deep Treatments & Oil Treatments). The oil was massaged into the scalp for about 2 to 5 minutes and applied generously to the ends. If you have dry scalp, dandruff, breakage or split ends, oil treatments really help to minimize the damage. After my hair was coated in the treatment, I applied a plastic cap. The treatment stayed on for about 3 hours of air dry time and 15 minutes of heated time. The reason behind this is that I was being lazy by lounging around the house. The usual time is 15 minutes of heat while sitting under a hooded dryer.

The oil treatment was rinsed out with cool water to seal in the nutrients followed by Kurlee Belle's Almond and Shea Butter Moisturizing Shampoo rinsed out with warm water. Then Kurlee Belle's Thirsty Kurls Leave-In Conditioner was applied for the detangling and sectioning process. In addition, to applying Kurlee Belle's A Kurlee Girl's Dream Kurl Defining Cream, I used raw shea butter. Since, I style my hair only once a week, shea butter helps to seal in the moisture and keep the hair soft and shiny. In addition to adding shea butter to this past week's regimen, I massaged my scalp with vitamin e oil daily. Vitamin E oil is used to increase scalp circulation and aids in hair growth. I particularly paid close attention to my sides and thinning spots, since these are the areas that received the most stress from when I wore sew-ins or braids.

Tip: The less you manipulate your hair, the more it retains length. Protective styling is a great way to give your hair a rest and let it grow. It is also a way to eliminate having to do your hair each day. So you have more time to concentrate on being fly.
