What is your usual natural hair style regimen during the week?

 What is your usual natural hair style regimen during the week aside from your fancy or formal styles for special occasion or when you want to dress it up?


 

This is my hair style regimen for this week after I uninstalled my curly tracks. I wore Twist outs for 2 days and Bantu Knots for 2 days. Experimenting with products-using a little of each, I used Carol's Daughter Hair Milk-Pudding and my own concoction of blended oils for my twist out after shampooing my hair (on damp hair) and for my Bantu Knots (on blow-dried hair), I used Cantu Shea Butter Twist & Lock Gel, Fantasia Organic Shea Butter Moisturizer Serum, a spritz of water, and my blended oil. My hair texture is fine and limp (also I believe a 3c) so it feels just like soft cotton but it's thin in density so my scalp easily shows. This is one of the reasons why I wear protective styles-because of the volume, length and/or density (fullness/body). 

My natural hair doesn't hold thermal curls for long. I can have a nice tightly curled style or set in the morning but as it gets closer to the afternoon and evening, my curls drop to the point where it looks like I had them in for a couple of days. Annoying at times and that's why I do my sew ins when I want to keep tight or soft curled thick-big hair styles. I give my hair a break in between protective styling to treat it, trim it and allow it to feel the air.
