So I finally have narrowed down my regimen for wash day. I sort of discovered this as a result of being overworked. But any who..
It is as follows:

When Azizi is out to play:

Daily:

L- Spritz with mixture of water, tea tree oil and castor oil

C – Apply Daily Leave In

O- Apply castor oil to edges

Weekly:

Cowash with moisturizing rinse out conditioner

Bi-Weekly:

Shampoo w/ shampoo bars

Apply tea rinse (green tea and black tea mixture) to strands

Deep Condition, rotate between moisturizing and protein conditioner while adding honey and castor oil

When Azizi is tucked away (protective style):

Daily: 

L- Spritz with mixture of water, tea tree oil and castor oil

C – Apply Daily Leave In

O- Apply castor oil to edges

Once style is removed:

Pre-Poo: Castor Oil or Jojoba Oil

Section Hair into 6 – 8 medium twists and do scalp massages for 15 – 20 minutes

Clarify: Cherry Lola or Baking Soda Treatment depending on the amount of buildup

Shampoo: shampoo roots of each section with poo bar and then rinse out and retwist (will skip this step if I do clarify my tresses)

Tea Rinse: apply tea rinse (green tea and black tea mixture) to strands

Deep Condition: Whatever I have lying around and I add raw honey, castor oil and aloe vera gel to the mixture
Sit under the steamer…once complete leave DC in for another 1 – 2 hours

Cowash: apply cowash to each individual section, detangle from tip to root and retwist
Squeeze out excess liquid

Apple Cider Vinegar & Honey Rinse: to close cuticles  Skipping this step until further research has been conducted

Apply LCO products and style 🙂
