Tuesday evening, I co-washed. Then I had to help someone do something on the computer. By the time I was done, it was nearly 9pm and I was tired. I just wanted my hair de-frizzed and not too wet before bed.
After wetting my hair again, I parted it into four sections. (It's usually eight. My hair is quite voluminous.) In an attempt to get it to dry faster, I slathered L'Occitane Smoothing Gloss (mostly glycerin - I won it - yay...
), along with Carol's Daughter "Healthy" Hair Butter (oils, shea, and BEESWAX).
I knew instantly
it was a tragic mistake. It was like putting paste in my hair! Again... I'm tired. So I wet it again to try to get rid of the pasty-flakiness and then used the blow-dryer. Even with the diffuser, my hair was getting bigger and BIGGER and POOFY
It was the dark cloud of doom growing on my head...
My hair has been up in a bun until today.
Tonight, Friday, I felt the need for a "do over". That means pulling out the sulfates! (That's right. Complete with the lather, rinse, repeat.) I followed that with a deep conditioner and went back to my trusty Tresemme Naturals Conditioner and Biotera Gel.
I apologized to my curls during this whole process and they are happy (shiny and bouncy) again.
