First Hairevelation: Vitamin E oil
I accidentally left my hair products behind (went to visit relatives who lived near our vacation spot) and had to use what my cousin's wife had.
Well, my cousin's wife is Pakistani and she does not use hair products on her curls
but she did have some vitamin E oil for her skin so I used that.
Well, I was a little skeptical (most of you know my relationship with oils) but that stuff worked. My hair was so soft and shiny and not a frizz to be found. Best part about it was the quick drying time. It has been a week since I have used this and so far so good.
I do not think vitamin E is a real oil (read it somewhere but if that is wrong someone correct me) so maybe that had something to do with it. It was in a carrier oil (safflower or sunflower oil).
So, does anyone else use vitamin E oil?
Do you think it is good for the hair or is it one of those "drying" over time oils?
Second Hairevelation: Scrunching
Who would have thought that you could scrunch 3c hair. I am not sure why/how it worked because my previous experience with scrunching gave me frizz. Well not this time! I put a little oil and water mixture into my hand when I scrunched so I wonder it that had something to do with it.
My hair is getting more corkscrew-y when I scrunch it. I like that.
Third Hairevelation: My hair is unique
I made my SO look at 3c curly hair pictures so I could find my hair "twin."
Well, he said, "hair is unique. No one's hair is *exactly* the same." Then he went on to say that my hair was beautiful and unclassifiable. He is a sweetheart.
He sort of confirmed what I already knew. I am satisfied with having hair "cousins."
I hope my next hairevelation is brushing.
I am going to keep an eye out for the PM brush.
Just wanted to share.
And if any of you had a "hairevelation," feel free to post them here.
