After shampooing, sometimes I notice that my scalp is not as clean as it should be. Sometimes, after I'm finished shampooing and conditioning, I would part the front of my hair and I would still see little bits of dirt and product. Ick! Then I would have to shampoo and condition all over again. Sigh.

Subject to change. Click here for my updated routine.
- I spray my hair with my moisturizing spritz.
- I then use a moisturizing hair product. This could be a hair cream, hair lotion, or a hair milk. If the product is very light/thin, I will use shea butter to seal it in. I apply the moisturizer in four sections.
- If I need to, I style my hair with a gel.
I named my site Precious Curls because when I used to look at my new growth growing out from under a relaxer, I saw itty-bitty, S-shaped little curls. Looking at my hair now, my curls come in many shapes and sizes and I'm in love with them all.
- I have a mixture of 4a and 4b type curls and coils.
- My curls are a bit looser in the very back and the very front of my hair.
- I have tighter coils on the sides of my hair.
- I have even tighter kinks in the middle of my head.

This blog will be all about the celebration and appreciation of naturally curly, kinky, and coily hair. Let's be proud of the fluffy, curly, poofy, natural beauty that God put on our heads. This is the type of hair that tends to be labeled as "messy", "untamed", "unmanageable", "unattractive", you name it. It is the hair type that needs to be "fixed", "tamed", and most importantly, straight. But why has silky straight hair become the standard of beauty? Why are we still stuck on the notion that only straighter hair is good hair? We've got to get rid of this idea.
