: I'm new...is this normal?
I decided earlier this week, for a number of reasons, to finally stop pretending I had straight hair. I'm 31 and have had the "wash, condition, towel dry, brush, ponytail" routine for most of my adult life.
I set up an appointment at a local place for this weekend - one that specializes in curls. Wheee!
In the meantime, I've talked to some curly friends that had obviously been wanting to give me some advice. Their thoughts? Product, no brushing, and stop using a towel to dry my hair.
So three mornings ago, I used a t-shirt and blotted/squeezed it. It was AMAZING the difference. I did the same thing yesterday, and it was even less frizzy. I had curly hair!
This morning, I tried some sulfate free leave in conditioner. I thought I'd give it a go. The result? My hair is still kind of frizzy, but it's also a much tighter curl than yesterday.
As my hair gets rehydrated as I start taking better care of it - is my hair going to keep getting more curly? I thought I was barely a 3a but now I'm a 3a/3b mix and it's only been 3 days!
