HIT PLAY TO WATCH A SIMPLE WASH DAY ROUTINE
This is a simple, easy, and effective hair wash routine for hair types 4c 4b and 4a.
I don’t know about you, but when I first went natural, I did the absolute MOST on wash days. Sat under dryers, steamers, hot oil treatments weekly, blow dryers, aloe vera juice, oil concoctions – ANYTHING I saw other naturals do that claimed to promote hair growth. As my life got busier and more complex, I couldn’t afford to spend hours weekly on my hair routine, so I simplified it. I thought my hair would suffer, but surprisingly, it didn’t. Here’s my updated SUPER SIMPLE wash day routine.
SIMPLE HAIR ROUTINE FOR TYPE 4 HAIR
Properly washing, detangling, and moisturizing your hair is the foundation of a hair routine that promotes hair growth. Initial hair growth starts with the health of the scalp and length retention depends on moisturized strands and maintained ends. It’s important to keep a hair routine that is simple and compliments your lifestyle because consistency is the key to hair that flourishes.
I use the L.O.C. method when washing and moisturizing my hair. I apply water/leave-in, oil, then cream the next day. The acronym stands for the steps in a typical moisturizing routine; liquid, oil, cream. I have dry hair that is low in porosity, so it’s imperative that I have a simple routine that works every time.
HOW TO WASH, DETANGLE, AND MOISTURIZE 4C HAIR
- Shampoo hair twice and rinse. Apple shampoo only to scalp.
- Condition hair and rinse.
- Deep condition hair and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse.
- While rinsing hair, take medium sized sections of hair and two-strand twist it under the shower flow.
- Untwist each section, apply leave-in conditioner, oil, and re-twist each section.
- Let twists air dry.
If this helped with you, share it with your friends. This method has cut my wash day time in half. This is hands down the fastest and most effective way I’ve found to wash and detangle my hair.
