So Fine- Regimen Awareness + Win a Custom Consultation and Products from Komaza Care

So you want to know the secret to having good hair? The one key thing that will cause your hair to thrive and grow strong? It will not only save you money, but also space in your cabinets. Ready for it?

consistency.

Making sure that you have a consistent maintenance routine and product regimen is, in my opinion, the most important thing you can do for your hair. Ok, and drinking plenty of water too, but I digress. It’s easy to fall into the trap to product junkyism or testing out new styles each week, but this is all sorts of bad news for naturals — especially you SO FINE naturals whose delicate tresses need as regular, and gentle care as possible.

I know, because I’ve been there. I’ve switched around products too often and the result was a tangled, coil-less mess. Just yesterday, I was bumming out because my neglected nighttime routine has left me with nearly loc’ing ends that I find just oh-so upsetting.

 

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Routine is important, I know this, but even I sometimes fall off the wagon.

So lets all hop back on together by establishing new or maintaining existing routines! I called up natural hair guru, Rene Maddox, the Founder and Co-owner of Komaza Care because she knows. her. stuff!

Rene and Cass

 

Here are some interesting facts that came from the conversation that hopefully will impress upon you the importance of maintaining a routine:

  • Stick with it: It takes 6-8 weeks for your hair to really get used to a product.  Before this time, it will be difficult for you to actually see the maximum benefit a product can have on your hair.  So unless a product is REALLY messing with your hair (and you’ll know) keep using it and then after 6-8 weeks make a decision about whether or not to repurchase it.
  • Nail down your technique: This is a different way of saying practice makes perfect.  If you don’t like how your wash’n'go came out the first time, there’s a good chance that you just need to work a little bit more on how you are executing the style.  Are you using too much product?  Too little?  Are you smoothing and working the product in enough?  Over time, you will develop a practiced and perfected technique that works for YOU- every time- like clockwork.
  • Pay attention: Read the ingredients.  If your hair doesn’t like heavy butters and oils, make sure you’re not trying to use a product that has a lot of heavy butters and oils.  Similarly, if your hair loves aloe vera, make sure to find products that use a lot of this ingredient!
  • Ask and you shall receive: If you have questions about how to use a product, do not be afraid to call a product company and ask!  If you’ve never done this before, you’d be surprised at how accessible product companies often are!  They can answer all your questions and make sure that you’re using the product the right way.

A solid product regimen should be centered around two things: a moisturizer and a moisture sealer.  Then to that core, you should add a shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, and a styler.  I was going to orchestrate a giveaway of a certain group of products that I hold near and dear to my heart, but that goes against everything I said above and believe in: what works for me, may not work for you.

So I’m really excited to giveaway a CUSTOM PRODUCT CONSULTATION AND COMPLETE KOMAZA CARE PRODUCT REGIMEN!  One winner is going to be taken under the wing of Miss Rene of Komaza Care to determine what your specific product needs are and then work with her to develop a custom product regimen that you will use consistently [for 6-8 weeks].  While it’s difficult to say which specific products from Komaza Care the winner will receive, we’re talking about a shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer, styler, and more (depending on your needs!) Holy buckets this is a good one and I’m really excited to be able to sit on the sidelines for this one!
