Summer Switch up.

With the heat being as unbearable as it has been all summer, I quickly found out that my normal routine was not working. I used to be able to wash-n-go freely. Not really the case right now. Plus, the shea butter mixture from Belle Butters that I use on my hair was becoming to heavy. Right now my routine is as follows (if I don’t have any products that I am trying out):

Co-wash with whatever conditioner I am on (Wash hair once every two weeks)

Detangle while still damp

Moisturize with a combo of Ori Organics leave in condition and Kiah Alexandria leave in conditioner. 

Two strand twist

Leave two strand twisted until I have some place to go.


Do you have to do anything different to your hair when the seasons change? Also, How are you beating the heat?

  • I do a keratin treatment to mine 3 times a week in the summer. Keep my hair nice and moist since I opt for a lighter color in the summer. I also use moroccan oil daily and a hot oil treatment once a week. The heat is brutal on my hair, plus I flat iron a few days a week.

  • yeah, definitely had to switch up the routine, styling-wise. when it’s in the 90s, it’s usually pulled back because no style will hold it. and when it’s a decent temp, i usually wear my ‘fro out or do a flat twist out.

    i’m itching for a 2ST these days, but swimming is calling my name too much.
