#1: hard london water is a nightmare
hello! i have like... 3a-ish curls (when they're healthy) and i just moved to london where the harsh water is a TOTAL NIGHTMARE. i can never wear my hair curly because it always looks awful - so i've been straightening it which is also damaging but at least it doesn't look like a disaster/rats nest/dry. i was thinking a keratin treatment might help but i have no idea -- short of buying a VERY expensive water purification for my flat, or boiling water and letting it cool before i shower to wash my hair with, i'm screwed. anyway any input would be SUPER helpful.
