3. You will start to think about an entirely new hair plan
You might think now that you have this new haircut, especially if you went bald that you have to change your regimen to compensate, but that is completely untrue. There might be slight changes in your regimen which might have more to do with technique rather than a product overhaul.
Having a freshly shaven scalp, your head might be a little sensitive to product. In that case, a gentle shampoo or conditioner might be needed.
With washing, because you have a lot less hair, you will have a lot less dirt and grime build up to clean out. Washing can be cut down but never completely stopped.
Shampooing will be a lot less frequent, and you may not have to use a ton of conditioner to get the moisture you need.This does not mean you should not deep condition every now and again, try to keep your deep condition regimen in tact as your hair grows.
As for all your oils and leave-in, if you have a completely shaven head, you can bring your light oils* into rotation because creamy leave-ins and thick hair moisturizers will make your head look greasy, and will suffocate your scalp.
4. You might expect your texture to change
The truth is, it might look different as it grows. As most of us know, our hair grows very fast after a haircut, especially if the cut was a close shave or very short.
Personally every time that I have cut my hair (Usually in a Lupita Nyong’o style), my hair texture has changed. Be prepared to see a little change in the way your hair feels once it is growing back.
It might feel a lot more healthy, so it might be more full or your curls more defined. It might feel curlier or straighter, but it won’t be anything anyone else notices, just you.
These changes in hair texture are normal, so do not freak out. Your hair is still your hair, which means the same products are still going to work and work well.
Haircuts are scary but totally electrifying, the cool thing is you can enjoy it for a minute and then you have the choice to grow it all back.
