I use shampoo
My hair is extremely healthy, shiny, and has no split ends. I believe this is because my hair is not color treated. Being extremely healthy and low porosity, my hair and my ends rarely dry up. I enjoy using shampoo when I want a refreshing wash day! I used to stay away from it, but now I realized it does not really make a difference in my hair routine.
I use silicones
I still don't like and advise a routine full of silicones, but once in a while I use them and I don't freak out about it. If I use heat on my hair, I absolutely use silicones to protect it! They really wash out easily with a shampoo or two, so no need to be worried.
I use heat
I skip the leave-in conditioner
This is mostly because I am lazy or because I forget it out of the shower. Sure, my style is cuter when I use a good leave-in, but it is not the end of the world!
I touch my hair while drying
I don't actually do this on purpose, but I can't take my hands out of my hair! Even when my hair is drying I always touch it, which usually results in some frizzy sections I have to take care of after! Bad habit…
I don't wear a UV protection or a hat in the summer
I never did it and probably never will.

I leave the sea water in my hair
Again, because I am lazy. After going into the ocean I rarely shower to clean out the salt from the hair. My hair usually dries a bit stiff, but it also encourages curl definition! I do make sure to wash out the chlorine though if I went swimming in a pool!
I use rubber bands
Because I workout every day, I need my hair to stay in place. Every hair tie I tried in the past never stayed on my hair after the first three jumps until I found some special hair ties that have a rubber lining that sticks to the hair. It can break some of my hair if I am not careful removing it, but I have so much hair that until now I did not see a difference!
I use dry shampoo
I normally wash my hair 1-2 times per week and in between washes I use dry shampoo. It is not the best thing to do if you want to see your hair grow, because it can really clogs the follicles, but I have no time to style my hair after every workout session!

I forget to tie my hair to sleep
This doesn't happen often, but sometimes I am so tired I just jump in the bed and forget about braiding my hair. The result? A tangled beast in the morning!
I don't always wear my hair curly
I like the result that I achieve with my Curlformers set. I probably wear my hair in a stretched-out state more often than I wear it curly because it really saves me time. I am all about being practical
What are the curly girl rules you like to break? Do you share some of mine?
