How do I style my hair on no-wash days? HELP!
So I'm in the process of getting healthier curls because I want to grow my hair out. I have 3C kinky-curly hair. My question is, on the days that I don't wash my hair, how do I style it? What I've done in the past is taken daily showers and just conditioned my hair on no wash days. If I don't condition it in the shower, it gets super frizzy from sleeping on it and starts to lose the curl the longer I go. Is there a way to have my curls without getting it wet at all? Is there a product I can use when I don't shower to give it some "oomph"? Because I literally just wear it in a bun if I haven't showered because it looks so bad and frizzy and I would love to be able to not shower everyday and still have great curls!!
If you shower with (this is going to suck) cold water... your hair will clump up and you should see a lot less frizz. I don't usually wet my hair everyday; between washes I will use a leave in, or just spray some cold water on it and fluff it out. Also are you pineappling at night? (see video) My main go to style is a wash and go or a bun. Im a lazy natural and styles aren't my thing but you can Youtube the mess out of MoKnowsHair, Naptural85, and ItsMYRayeRaye and tons and tons of other naturals out there. I do not mind frizz at all. I think its fine but here are some great reads on how to prevent it:
I'm so new to all of this....I don't even know what wash and go is or pineappling...I have a lot of research to do haha. Thanks for your help!
whenever your wash day is make sure you have a good amount of product in your hair, let your hair air dry or use a diffuser, whichever you prefer. When going to bed put your in a high ponytail on the top of your head, and if you want put your in a satin cap so you won't disturb your curls while you sleep. Or you can just get a satin pillowcase so you won't mess up your curls. With a cotton pillowcase it messes up your curls.
