This is my second summer being natural and I had yet to find a perfect summer routine. I have my winter regimen down but I am still experimenting with what will work now that it’s warmer. I figured out that I need to start deep conditioning (DC) twice weekly to keep it moisturized since I’m wearing it out almost everyday. However until this weekend I was still struggling to find the right oil to seal my hair. I normally use butters during the winter but they weigh my hair down to much during the summer. I’ve tried coconut oil, olive oil, and castor oil with minimum success.
However this weekend I need to go out with friends and needed to style my hair quickly. I decided to skip using an oil so that my hair could dry faster. What I ended up with was great results. My hair was still moisturized and wasn’t weighed down by the oil. I’m super excited I finally have a daily summer routine that works and gives me great hair.
