1) Holy smokes, I have wavy hair!

2) Holy smokes, Getting rid of sulfates was THE single best thing I ever did for myself!

3) Holy smokes, I really can get away with only "washing" my hair twice a week!

4) Holy smokes, my hair LOVES magnesium sulfate!

5) Holy smokes, my hair prefers jellies and mousses over hard hold gel!

6) Holy smokes, I'm pretty sure BRHG contains superglue and concrete!

7) Holy smokes, thank goodness someone invented the diffuser!

I just had the stupidest aha moment yesterday!! After a couple of months trying to figure out how to get second day hair (aside from braiding, which worked), all I really need to do is fluff my hair and spritz a tiny bit of water on top. I don't know why the heck I never thought to just fluff!! Omg...

I am still figuring out my hair but my Aha moments would be:

I have to switch up my hair products in summer and winter months. My hair likes glycerin in summer but hated\s them in winter/colder months.

I am protein sensitive (no wonder my curls were straw for the longest time) although I still need protein every once in a while.

scrunching my mouse in my hair makes my curls look better

I low poo instead of co wash

My products work better if I let them sit in my hair for a bit before I defuse my hair.


adding in my products while hair is very wet
