Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Strength Restoring Conditioner
Mar 24, 2014 - Frizz, meet your foe. Tangles, meet your comb. I left this conditioner in my hair for about 7 minutes (that's the time I approximate it takes to shave my legs, accurate, no?) and let it rinse out, breathing in the sweet sweet scent of perfectly curly hair. I actually look forward to washing my hair, like right now, I might just go do that. Not only do I look forward to washing/conditioning it, it actually creates those little bouncy curls that make 10 people stop you throughout the day and ask, "Is your hair naturally curly?" You know, that question that generally ignites a deep-rooted longing in your heart to punch them in the face. "YES! Yes, I have lived with this torture my whole life, the frizz, the pain, the chemical treatments to get it straightened because all I wanted to be in high school was a normal girl with normal hair and not this crying heap of a mess who can't figure out how to blow dry her hair without emulating the sort of dog that only rich people own." And they would chuckle. CHUCKLE. Because they say, "Man what I would give to have curly hair, my hair does nothing." And then they hold up their frizz-free, highlighted locks, procuring another distinct flashback to the cheerleaders I went to school with, and my heart dies a little inside. I want to do nothing with my hair. I don't want to spend hours a week learning just how to wash and dry my hair. I don't want to have to go to a special hairstylist and pay three times as much as you so I don't look like a brunette Carrot-top. What did I ever do to God to deserve this?! Tell me!!
But then, this conditioner. Rewind that scene to the "Is your hair naturally curly?" And I smile, whip my perfectly bouncy curls in their face, lean one sly cheek over my shoulder and reply so sweetly and innocently, "Yeah girl, I'm Au Naturale". And then strut away like I just beat out Jennifer Lawrence for an Oscar. Because of my hair.
So yes. I love this stuff.
