Question Six: Please share your regimen.

I.S: I wash my hair with shampoo after 2-3 weeks. I usually run some water into my hair in between wash days to keep it moisturized, then I coat it with either coconut/ olive oil and lock in that moisture with Shea butter/ gel (LOC method). I repeat this after every 3-4 days.
