Abi’s Curly Hair Care Regimen

In the meantime, you can also check out all my current product recommendations and favorites on my carefully curated Ade Ori Amazon Store.

A breakdown of my curly hair care regimen

I receive a lot of emails asking about my regimen especially the shine in the Curlformers set in the featured image.

Today’s article is going to show a breakdown of my regimen and my favourite hair products and the products I’m still lusting after. 🙂

My regimen is simple. I have insane working hours currently and my spare time is limited. In my earlier hair care days, I was a bonafide PJ.

As soon as I read about something even remotely interesting, I would order 2 packs without checking out the ingredients or anything.

Thankfully, I have recovered from that and my wallet is grateful.

I still give in to a new product once in a while but only after thorough research has been conducted and there’s room in my wallet to accommodate the cost.

Below is the simpler regimen I follow these days and my favorite product picks: –

My Curly Hair Care Regimen

Pre Poo Regimen – Every 2 Weeks

I usually pre-poo with 5 ingredients:-

I wrote a post about mixing ingredients in 5 Ingredients for the Best Pre-Poo with Oils Ever.

There is also an instructional video included. This pre-poo always leaves my hair soft, easy to detangle, and seriously moisturized.

From time to time when I’m creating content for Healthy Natural Hair Products, I also try out other pre-poo combinations. I share those HERE.

Shampoo and Deep Conditioning Regimen – Every 2 Weeks

Hot Oil Treatment Regimen – Every 4 Weeks

  • I use one of my favorite oils for this – coconut oil, grape seed oil, almond oil, or olive oil.

Henna Treatment Regimen – Every 8 – 10 Weeks

I do henna and indigo mix as the indigo gives the hair a lovely blue-black gloss afterward and it lasts for quite some time.

For even better results, I’ve done henna first and then indigo but goodness, it took all day and I won’t be doing that again any time soon.

I recently detailed my henna process in Henna Head Weekend. The next time I henna, I will make a tutorial video.

Daily Hair Care Regimen

Other Hair Care Regimen Faves

  • For leave-in Ouidad Moisture Lock and Infusium 23 (the original formula. I don’t like the new one). They have a great big bottle of Infusium 23 now and it lasts me for ages. 
  • Gels – Ouidad Climate Control (for frizz control) and homemade hair gel.
  • Ouidad Curl Recovery Extreme Repair Mask. Effective but expensive considering my hair can take ½ a jar in one go. It’s a treat reserved for when my wallet can accommodate it.
