What/Why

On the protein treatment wash day, I do a dedicated protein treatment followed up by a protein-free, moisture-infusing deep treatment.

When and How Frequently

  • Every 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month . . . IMPORTANT: A chelating shampoo is used on only the 4th Saturday

Steps

  1. Steam hair
  2. Cleanse scalp
  3. Cleanse strands
  4. Treat strands with protein treatment (do not apply heat at this time)
  5. Treat strands with protein-free, moisture-infusing deep treatment (apply heat)
  6. Hydrate hair with aloe Very juice or an AVJ-containing spritz
    NOTE: AVJ has the capacity to hold a LOT, LOT, LOT of water but must be used strategically to make sure it, ironically, does not have a drying effect upon the hair
  7. Detangle with detangling leave-in
  8. Moisturize and seal (if/when using a scalp-stimulating product, apply it at this step)
  9. Style hair (typically either a wash-n-go, wash-n-dry, wash-n-stretch, wash-n-ponytail, two-strand twist out, or My Curl Squad roller set [i.e., spoolies])

Tools and Accessories

  1. 6-10 small Goodly Ouchless Flex Comfort Flex Updo barrette for sectioning the hair (see Kimmaytube’s Luv Naturals website for video demonstration)
  2. plastic processing cap (for putting all other hair away while detangling a particular section)
  3. Optional: HairFlair dryer attachment . . . with handheld dryer
  4. Optional: Thermal conditioning cap if deep treatments are not done under the HairFlair
  5. Spray bottle of water
  6. Detangling tool (this could be a shampoo brush, Txturepro comb, wide-tooth comb, Kent 16t, Oudidad Double Detangling Comb, Wet Brush, etc.)
  7. Spray or flairosol bottle of aloe Vera juice if not opting to hydrate the hair with AVJ versus an AVJ-containing spray product
  8. Multi-teeth color applicator bottle (to hold the DIY CurlyProverbz Hair Growth Oil)
