Adventures in Naturally Curly Hair!
One of the drawbacks to living in the desert is the dry air and what it does to my hair. For most of my life I've taken for granted that my hair will take a lot of punishment. I use permanent dyes and heat on it regularly. But since I moved to the Southwest it's not having it anymore. We all remember the summer of 2016 when I decided to shave my head, in part, because it was so damaged, right?? So I've been trying to learn how to embrace my curls. Right now I'm trying something called "The Curly Girl" method, which involves only using conditioner to wash your hair and NO shampoo. I'm not sure if I'll adhere to this method 100% faithfully in terms of no heat or dye (definitely not no dye), but I am going to give this no-poo + tons of leave-in + drying with an old t-shirt thing a shot.
Tonight was my last shampoo, using baby shampoo, to strip the wax from my old cheap shampoo out of my hair and prepare it to begin soaking in the moisture of my new routine. Then I used THREE DOZEN perm rods to achieve a glorious crown of curls! (I tried sleeping in it but I woke up after 3 hours with a headache, so... Lesson learned!!)
It's not something I'm even remotely used to seeing, but I think it's cute and I think I like it. I'm sure I'll get better at this as I do it more, too. I know I need to learn how to separate my curls better... But for a first attempt I'm digging it!
