What should I do to maintain a hair regimen that I can afford to maintain? I don't have a job and and I go to school, I can't afford to always buy conditioners and get my hair done at the hair salon to straighten my roots. So far I've been co-washing my hair and DC'ing alternating the DC's from my dominican silicone pearl extract protein DC and with my Vitals DC(Idk if thats a protein or moisturizing
) but so far im going on 6 weeks post and I literally have an inch of new growth, yesterday I straightening my roots because I didnt want my hair to be tangley and create further damaged. My hair has gotten longer which Im pleasantly surprised, because I didn't think half an inch would show any significant difference. What kind of regimen should I create to still take care of my hair but can afford, because my hairis growing to fast for me to keep up with financially?
