hello everyone, im new here!
. iv actually been stalking this site for quite some time now. i originaliy found this website by googleing ''curly hair care'' and lo and behold, this site was one of the first links to show up! i think this site is totally awesome by the way. i spent years dying for straight hair, and it was only untill about 2 years ago that i started accepting my hair for it's naturally curly texture. and checking out this website has helped a lot too. it's helped me learn that curly hair can be cute and sexy just like straight hair
ok, now for hair troubles. my main problem with my hair is that it is that it's practically dead. this was caused by years of daily washing, sometimes twice a day. the reason why i would wash my hair so much is because i would hate the feeling of sweat and grime and getting caught in my thick mass of hair.iv
been co washing for about 4 months now, only shampooing about twice a week. but my hair still hasn't shown any improvement! i haft to co wash my hair everyday or else my hair will look frizzy and damaged.
this is what i do with my hair everyday to keep my curls looking ''OK''
my routine for the morning:
1.while in the shower, i rub vo5 conditioner into my scalp and hair,lightly scrubbing it in. then i leave the conditioner on for the remainder of shower, i rinse it off when im done.
2. wrap a towel around my head for 15 minutes(i don't try to towel dry it)
3. i remove the towel, brush out my hair, then i apply the same vo5 conditioner i co wash with as a leave in conditioner. next i add either a little bit of body lotion(it's actually a great defrizzer) or about two pumps of john Freida's frizz ease.
4.i pull my semi damp hair back into a pony tail(i almost never leave my hair down)
my night time routine is basically the same as my morning routine, only i don't add any de frizzers
another problem i have with my hair is that im not really sure what category it goes into. i don't weather im kinky-curly, 3cb curls, or both! this is also a little frustrating to me.
can anyone give me advice?
