#1: Summer's coming!!
Hey guys. Okay, I'm having some serious hair issues & I really need help! I just started wearing my hair out in its natural state last year & I didn't really achieve the type of hair I wanted until somewhere around the end of last year. I've been growing my hair out ever since last summer & everything was going great up until about the beginning of this month. I was getting 5-6 day hair & now I'm barely making it to 3rd day. I've had the same routine for a while but I did notice my hair had started looking better when it started getting colder out. I thought now maybe my hair was just dry, but it's not that. My curls just aren't clumping & defining as nicely & my hair is shrinking up a bit more (which I expected but I thought it'd be happening b.c the curls would get a little more defined & tighter). I'm guessing I need to change up my routine for the warmer weather but I don't even know where to start! I use the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo or the As I Am Co-wash, the Camille Rose Naturals Algae Deep Conditioner, the Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk, the Curl Enhancing Smoothie, a mango butter mixture I made myself with olive oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, honey, & a frangrance oil & the Shea Moisture Hold & Shine Mist. Even my first & second day hair (second is ALWAYS my fave) haven't looked good. Sorry that I made this so long but if there's ANYTHING you guys can think of, please let me know! My hair type is mostly 3c w/ some 4a.
