In the meantime, today we tackle the hair-related post.
I'm going to be frank...this wasn't well thought out. I don't have any great tips for you. I'm actually pretty no-fuss when it comes to hair/make-up so don't expect to be wowed.
Here's my hair routine:
- Wash (every day to every 2 days...I try not to overwash as this is bad for curly hair, but if I'm nasty from the gym sorry, I'm sudsing up)
- Towel dry (just to get most of the drippy water out)
- Mousse (I use Suave Captivating Curls - it doesn't make my hair crunchy and for ALL of my hair I only have to use about a one palm full)
- Air dry
- On days I don't wash, I use a squirt bottle to spritz the curls to regain their shape and bounce. That squirt bottle is the best tool I own. Ghetto fabulous.
I don't diffuse (or very rarely).
I don't straighten.
I'm lazy (and I take grainy pictures).
When, however, I get my hair cut (or trimmed as it were...I'm growing it out for Locks of Love again), my stylist blows it out straight. It takes her and an assistant working side-by-side to wrangle the mass of hair atop my head...but they get it done. (Just another reason why I won't/can't straighten my own hair. If the professionals need help...)
I actually took these pictures before the curly ones. And I'll be honest - I took them the morning after my hair cut (hence the jammies). Yep, this is I-got-my-hair-cut-last-night-and-slept-on-it-then-took-pictures-first-thing-in-the-morning hair. I DID, however, shower right after and then take the curly pics. Don't judge me.
Funny to compare and see how much my hair "shrinks" when it's curly.
I love seeing it straight though because I feel like an entirely different person which is fun for a day or so. (But the curls are me and I love them. I used to fight it but now I embrace it.)
I just realized that these photos look like I'm less than modestly dressed.
I was wearing pajamas and a tank top but I promise I'm fully clothed.
I am not a streaker.
