Updated Summer Product List

8:38:00 AM 2 Comments A+ a-

It's summertime and it's time to update my staple product list! In the summer months, I tend to shift to a "less is more" hair routine. I will stretch my styles out by two weeks or longer if I'm feeling lazy. LOL Gone are the days of twisting and retwisting my hair, or rocking intricate hair styles. Hello to days of wash and go's, puffs and 2 week old twist outs. 

Georgia can get pretty hot and extremely humid in the summers so I don't worry too much about maintaining my curl definition. Below is my updated product list for the summer.

How I Use It
Beautiful Textures Tangle Taming Shampoo
Weekly or Biweekly depending on how much I work out
Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioning Milk
Weekly Cowashing
Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl and Style Conditioning Milk

Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave-In Condition

I need to perfect my wash n go. But I want to truly be able to wash and go - not section and apply and all that jazz. Help!

@Tazzee - I know what mean. It all starts with products. you have to find the right combo or the right ones to use. Sometimes we tend to go for those that only add moisture instead of those that add moisture and define curls. What are you currently using?
