My Summer Hair Regimen

Hey Kurlies,

When I hear the word summer, I think of one word: RELAX! Doesn't everyone!?!?! It's one of the best times of year to engage in rest and rejuvenation. This summer I'll be incorporating this theme for a more relaxed hair regimen for the rejuvenation of my tresses. Today's post is dedicated to discussing my weekly summer hair regimen.

First off, for the month of June, I have been rocking mini twists. For whatever reason, my hair grows a lot during the summer months, and if I can maintain low manipulation/ protective hairstyles, I am able to retain more hair length. 

Now, let's talk about my regimen for my mini twists. Monday through Sunday (except on Friday), I have been lightly applying my aloe/water spray mix to my hair and moisturizing my ends using a dollop of my homemade moisturizing cream (Read about it here). Friday has been my designated wash/ scalp cleaning day!!! On Friday evening, I have been taking some cotton pads soaked with witch hazel and cleaning my scalp! I clean my scalp this way to minimize the frizz and tangles associated with washing my hair in mini twists. This has been the result when I have attempted to wash my mini twist in the past, and it wasn't pretty or fun to take down. Can we say knots on top of knots!?!?! After I clean my scalp, I'll spray and moisturize my hair with the same products from the other days.

My hair regimen is pretty easy, right? It;s been pretty low maintenance for the most part. My hair has been easier to moisturize with the twists in my head, and my night time routine has been less than five minutes, including moisturizing my hair and placing my satin cap on my head. Definition of SIMPLE! 

With the end of June on the horizon, I plan on switching up my hairstyle. For July, I plan on installing box braids. Winning!!! I seriously can't wait! I love braids!  I'll figure out a hair regimen for my braids soon, but I am sure it will be similar to my mini twists regimen. 

 Box braid memories from January/ February 2014! How I miss them so!?! 

What's your summer hair regimen? What favorite products are you digging right now? Are you keeping the same hair products for summer or are you switching up? 

Until next time...
Be faith-filled, fearless, and fabulous,
Kurly Ken


  1. Im about to try Havana twists. I currently have large twists in my hair with no weave. I'll send pics.

    You've always used witchhazel. I might try that.

  2. Ooooh! Havana twists sound fun! Send pics of those when you do them!

  3. Why witch hazel? I have to look that up. Can't wait for your box braid regimen because I plan in getting braids also. I would love to try the mini twists but I'm scared.

    1. And in regards to twists, don't be scared. Just find a size for your twists that works for you and your lifestyle.

  4. Witch hazel helps to clean the pores and reduce/remove product buildup. It also keeps my scalp from itching, which occurs with styles like twists and braids.'s cheap!
