Exception This Week: No deep-conditioning

♣ I rinse away ‘old’ products from hair (in-shower) with tepid water

♣ I shampoo scalp (once) with Kinky Curly Come Clean Shampoo

♣ I rinse shampoo from scalp with mildly warm water

♣ I remove excess water from hair

♣ I zap some leave-in conditioner for 7 seconds in the microwave until liquefied

♣ I transfer warm liquefied leave-in into an applicator bottle (for ease of use) and apply to hair

♣  I let cool for 10 minutes

♣ I spritz my strands with cold water to adequately saturate prior to applying styler (this moisturises, calms cuticles, reduces the risk of greasy hair and encourages curl definition)

♣  I apply cold styling lotion and smooth through hair

♣  I apply a sliver of cold broccoli seed oil to crown (to reduce persistent frizz).


I have used heat to moisturise my low porosity hair for the past 3 years, low porosity hair is tolerant of heat and requires it to moisturise effectively.

No hair dryer or diffuser were harmed in the use of this technique.
