Day 1 - WashDay/ #HairSpaDay (3 - 5 hours total)

On this day, you detangle, wash, condition and stretch your hair using our #L2Stretch method. Place your hair in a #10TwistBun and tie it with a satin scarf for bedtime.

Day 2 & 3 -#10TwistBun (15 minutes)

Remove your scarf, smooth your edges with a spandex band"Smooth Operating Aloe Gel" and you're set for the next 2 days! (Repeat these steps in the morning as needed).

Day 4 -#Moisturize (5 -10 minutes)

Moisturizing on this day may not feel necessary if your hair has normal porosity and especially if you use our "Love Me and Leave-In Conditioner", but if you're on the #Thriver hair path for maximum hair growth, it's important to give your ends a little spritz every 3 days. Do this at the end of the day, right before bedtime or whenever you wrap your hair for the evening.

To prevent "scalp itchies" (which is caused by microscopic dead skin cells that build up on all parts of our skin, even our scalp) I spritz my scalp with "Aloe Citrus Kisses" hair acidifier (ACK). ACK has a pH balance of 4.0 which is identical to aloe vera juice. It also contains soothing aloe vera, tea tree oils and vegetable glycerin (a humectant that attracts water).

On my ends, I lightly spritz "Aloe Citrus Kisses" hair acidifier and allow them to dry for a minute or two before pinning them back away in my bun. Now my hair is good for another 3 days!

Day 5 & 6 (5 - 10 minutes)

I'm sporting my #10TwistBun through the end of the week. :-) Again, you can smooth your edges for a more sleek look. It is completely optional and just depends on your own personal preference. 

Day 7 -10 #Moisturize and Retwist (1 to 2 hours)

Usually, I know ahead of time if I'm going to do an extended hairstyle wear and delay my #HairSpaDay, but sometimes life happens! In this case, I just moisturize and retwist my hair to refresh the look. Or, I have the option of allowing the ends to be unraveled for a nice #HighBun. Either way, by day #7, my hair is in need of a detangle. So I'll put in the 1 -2 hours to perform a dry detangle on each section to free them of shed hairs, moisturize and then retwist. If needed, I'll also give my scalp sections a light spritz of "Aloe Citrus Kisses" hair acidifier to stave off those "scalp itchies".

Congrats! You've made it through the week! :-)

Total time: 3.5 - 7 hours for the entire week or 10 days.

Day 1 - WashDay/ #HairSpaDay (3 - 5 hours total)

On this day, you detangle, wash, condition and stretch your hair using our #L1Stretch method which includes placing your hair in braids.

Day 2 & 3- #BraidOut (45 mins - 1 hour)

In the morning, remove your braids and fluff them at the roots only to achieve a fuller look.  At night, use a satin bonnet or satin scarf to protect your hair.  You can also preserve your braidout by using a 5" banana clip to gather your hair into a "pineapple" at the top of your head.

Day 4- #Moisturize (5 - 10 minutes)

Here's the catch with styles like #TwistOuts, BantuKnotOuts & #BraidOuts; Moisturizing your hair reverts it back and causes some of the texture to disappear. This is one of many reasons most people don't moisturize their hair as often as they should. If you moisturize, you could mess up your style, but if you don't do it then your hair risks breakage. Oh, the dilemma!

We have just the solution for you. Just transform your braidout midweek to a #ProtectiveStyle like the #PompaBun! :-)

At the end of the day, moisturize your hair with a light spritz of water on your ends or lightly spritz "Aloe Citrus Kisses" hair acidifier and allow it to dry for a minute or two. You can then style your hair in a #PompaBun at night or the next morning.

Day 5 - 7 #PompaBun (10 - 20 minutes)

The #PompaBun is a perfect style to use for an old braidout. Usually, there is still a bit of texture left over from the braids which just enhances the beauty of this style.

Congrats! You've made it through the week! :-)

Total time: 4.5 - 6.5 hours for the entire week.
