Simple 4-Step Wash Day Routine for Lazy Naturals

Simple 4-Step Wash Day Routine for Lazy Naturals

It’s easy to think that natural haircare is difficult and expensive when you’ve seen and tried complicated wash day routines that didn’t work for you. That feeling of frustration can make you want to give up on your hair entirely but what if I told you there’s an easier way to go about it?

In this blog post, we will break down what an effective and efficient wash day looks like. So, lazy and busy naturals gather here, let’s explore a simple bio 4-step routine to streamline your wash day.

Step 1: Cleanse

First off, you’re going to need a gentle sulfate-free shampoo. This type of shampoo doesn’t strip your hair of moisture, allowing you to wash your hair without the risk of excessive tangles and knots. 

Wet your hair thoroughly with warm water, then apply a sufficient amount of shampoo to your hair and scalp to thoroughly cleanse your hair and scalp of dirt, oil and buildup.  Make sure you use your fingertips to massage your scalp in circular motions, stimulating blood flow to promote hair growth.

Rinse your hair thoroughly until the water runs clear and all the product is removed. If needed, you can repeat this process to ensure a thorough cleanse, especially if you have a lot of build-up. 

Step 2: Deep Condition

Next, apply a generous amount of moisturizing deep conditioner to your hair. Start by sectioning your hair to ensure even distribution of the product. Focus on the mid-lengths and ends, as these areas tend to be drier. Gently detangle your hair with your fingers or a wide-tooth comb, starting from the ends and working your way up to prevent breakage. Be patient and gentle during this process.

Once your hair is detangled, cover your hair with a shower cap to trap heat and enhance the conditioning process and leave the conditioner on for a few minutes to allow it to penetrate the hair shaft for deep hydration and nourishment. If you have a steam cap, now’s the best time to use it. After 20-30 minutes, rinse your hair thoroughly. 

Step 3: Moisturize

After washing your hair, it's important to moisturize it to keep it hydrated and healthy. Apply a moisturizing leave-in conditioner to your hair from roots to ends. This will keep your hair soft, bouncy and moisturized all day. 

If you are a fan of the LOC (Liquid-Oil-Cream) or LCO (Liquid-Cream-Oil) method of moisturizing hair, you can follow up with a hair oil and hair cream, in which case your hair could stay moisturized for up to 3-7 days. These products help to maintain the moisture balance in your hair and prevent it from becoming dry and brittle. 

Pay special attention to your ends, as they tend to be drier than the rest of your hair. Applying a little extra product to the ends can help to keep them moisturized and prevent split ends. By moisturizing your hair regularly, you can help to keep it healthy, hydrated, and looking its best.

Step 4: Scalp Care

Oiling your scalp with a soothing hair growth oil can help nourish and soothe your scalp, keeping it healthy and promoting hair growth. Apply the oil directly to your scalp with your fingers or a dropper and massage it gently. 

Avoid applying too much oil, which can make your scalp greasy and speed up buildup on your scalp. After applying the oil, you can style your hair as usual. 

For best results, oil your scalp regularly. How often you oil your scalp will depend on your hair type and the condition of your scalp. Some people may benefit from oiling their scalp daily, while others may only need to do it once a week.


Just like that, in four simple steps, you can wash and maintain the health of your hair without the hassle of a complicated regimen. So if you’re a lazy natural or a busy bee, you can tick haircare off the list of stressful activities in your life.
