My Routine - 12 Steps!
(N.B: This was my routine in February but it's had some changes since, but the general routine is the same.)

Gona finally document my routine. 
I figured this might help me to remain consistent or pin-point any changes I may want to make, and generally help my progress.
As I said in the last post, I have based my routine on the "Grow It" Method from the book "Grow It" by Chicoro.

So In Brief Im going to: DetangleWashDeep ConditionMoisturise… and Style.

  • 1.) Cover the hair in oil.

  • 2.) Detangle with fingers and section into approximately 9 loose plaits.

  • 3.) Shampoo with Keracare Hydrating Detangling Shampoo – sulphate free.
  • 4.) Rinse

  • 5.) Deep Condition by covering the hair with a generous amount of Organic APH Triple Miracle Treatment and Do-Gro Stimulating Growth Oil
  • 6.) Cover hair with foil shower cap and use blow-drier to add heat. Keep hair heated for approximately 15mins.

  • 7.) Rinse. 

  • 8.) Place Keracare Humecto Crème Conditioner over hair.

  • 9.) Comb conditioner through each plait using wide-tooth comb (add more conditioner to section if necessary), then re-plait. Be sure the conditioner has been left on for 15 - 20 mins.

  • 10.) Rinse.

  • 11.) Apply Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave-In conditioner.

  • 12.) Seal with Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter while styling.

Note: Towel Blot hair but let it Air Dry


  1. I do want to try the kinky curly but hmm £15 maybe I can hint extra hard to my boyfriend lol!

  2. I know, right. At the moment my funds are down so Im using Cantu Shea Butter as my leave-in until my money's back up. It's £4.99 and I've been using it for a month with good results. But I do miss KKKT. xx
