…because hair is super exciting, right?
Anyway, at the urging of my friend Betsy (hi Betsy!), she told me to do the Curly Girl Method. I’ve used parts of that method for years, but am super lazy about other parts. This morning, I decided to do a little bit more of it (using a t-shirt instead of a towel to dry my hair, mainly) (I already use shampoo and conditioners that are curly-hair-friendly, according to the method) (the no-shampoo thing doesn’t work for me; I tried it and my hair was a disaster) (wow, sorry for the parantheticals), and put in some Kinky Curly cream as I untangled it with a wide tooth comb when it was wet and…that was it.
I usually can’t let my hair air dry because it goes crazy. It gets super frizzy and I look like I’ve been electrocuted. I went straight to a class with my seven-year-old, and halfway through I realized I must look like a homeless person and tied it back. But…hey! It didn’t! It dried like a well-adjusted head of hair, with no frizz! And yeah, it’s neither as curly nor as straight as I’d like, but it doesn’t quite look multiple personality disorder, either. I’m pretty happy with it.
I’m so happy that I might even try the no-shampoo thing again. Maybe. We shall see. But I am very relieved to not have to heat up my flat iron to get rid of the frizz. Time savers FTW!
(My outfit was lame, so I tried to get pictures that showed off my hair…and failed. Ah well.)
