When...at least 2 or 3 of your (straight haired and completely uninterested) family members/friends know what co-wash and low poo mean.
When ...you're so used to scanning ingredients lists for conditioners that one day you momentarily forget it's a pasta readymeal and think 'pureed tomato?! I'm not sure I want that in my hair!'
When...you can visit two or three local pharmacies to pick up a bottle of suitable conditioner and come back empty handed.
When...you're trying to find something relaxing to think about to help you get off to sleep....Hmm, ok, what conditioner/styler combo could I use tomorrow?
When...you're sharing a hair breakthrough, and someone's eyes are glazing over.
When...you re-read curly hair books again and again just for fun. In fact lets face it, when...you own curly hair books.
UK based wavy
Mostly waves, but curls and straight bits too!
Fine to medium, high porosity, medium density, very low elasticity
Highlights damage (growing it out), seems to like protein and need lots of moisture.
Cleanse - CJDF, trying out low poos ; Co wash- Uk chemist brands, Urtekram Rose or Aloe, Hairveda Amala Cream Rinse; RO - varies, Tigi Moisture Maniac, Desert Essence Coconut ; Leave in - Keracare natural textures; Sealant - argan oil
Trying out new things, still looking.
