So Britnee appeared recently on BGLH as a Now and Then winner and many of you were curious about her regimen so here it is! I’ve also added Britnee’s product picks to our ‘Tight Coils’ Product page.
B: Coarse, coily and cottony
What are your top 5 products?
B: Water/Sta Sof Fro
The best everyday moisturizer is water, and the Sta Sof Fro moisturizer is water-based so it keeps my hair soft. It’s a keeper.
Herbal Essences Hello Hydration
Detangles like nobody’s business
To “grease” my hair with and seal in moisture after every wash
For sealing, to mix in conditioners and as a natural shine enhancer for my hair
Eco styling gel (clear)
To give my hair a more “polished” look and for extra hold while doing 2 strand twists
What is your go-to style?
B: A puff, quick and simple
How often do you wash your hair?
B: I don’t have a set regimen for when I wash my hair. I listen to my hair and it tells me when it wants to be washed. So whenever I see buildup, it feels too coated or just isn’t acting right I know it’s time to hit the shower.
Do you deep condition your hair?
Do you moisturize your hair daily?
B: Yes, with Stay Sof Fro
How do you prepare your hair for bedtime?
B: Plait it up in moisturized braids and throw on a satin bonnet
How do you detangle?
B: In 4–6 sections in the shower on conditioner-drenched hair with my Jilbere comb. I have also detangled on dry hair with Stay Sof Fro (melts the tangles away I swear!) when I don’t feel like jumping in the shower.
What’s the biggest hair mistake you’ve made and how did you learn from it?
B: During my transitioning days I used heat really often… like once a week. A couple months later I found out that my hair type isn’t made for constant use of heat so the result was heat-damaged hair which now is all cut off and growing back nicely.
What is the most effective thing you do to maintain the health of your hair?
B: Low manipulation and frequent protective styles. I wear my hair out for about 1–2 weeks before either putting it in braids or 2 strand twists. If it’s acting right or I’m just pure lazy, I’ll let it go free for up to a month — but no further. Every day manipulation for a long period of time isnt good for my hair’s retention.
Wow. So there you have it. Thanks for that awesome regimen breakdown Britnee!
