What I focus on:
Moisturizing my hair without weighing it down, which is essential for wavy hair. Also, since my hair is really long it gets tangled easily so I focus on avoiding that issue as much as possible. Since my hair is oily at the roots, I clarify often and don’t use heavy shampoos. Finally, I try my best at achieving the best moisture to protein ratio and balance.
What I avoid:
I avoid co-washes because they tend to weigh my hair down and give me huge clumps and somewhat of a greasy look. I avoid heavy oils that cannot penetrate my hair shaft and butters oils such as Shea butter and coconut oil (especially in large amounts). I also avoid brushing my hair dry, direct heat, and harsh harmful ingredients!
