Tweak the regimen

I've been doing the "basics" for the last week and enjoying it!

I tried something new on Tuesday. I prepooed with V05 and coconut oil. Then I co-washed with Silken Child conditioner (it's usually the other way around). And went on with the regular routine.

Usually, my hair is somewhat dry, even right after a wash. But my hair is so soft and retaining moisture so much better! I'm contributing it to the Silken Child's co-wash. So I'm going to change my regimen slightly and see how it works.

Also, I have to give a shout out to the Kera Care shampoo. My hair hasn't been "clean" in so long. Even after a shampoo, my scalp would be flaky, my strands greasy, and my hair just wouldn't absorb products... even after using Suave clarifying shampoo AND regular shampoo. I'm going to try to incorporate high-quality products into my regimen as my budget allows. There really is a difference. I had been using Mizani Lavishing Shampoo for the past two years. Side note: I did read somewhere online that shampoo's should be switched regularly, so maybe it was past time to switch poo's.
