So, after a little less than a year with a pixie cut, I decided to go back to my natural curly ‘do. I’ve been relaxer free (again) since November of 2010 and I’m still trying to figure out my hair.
|My arsenal of products|
From that appointment on, I have been more pro-active in what I do to my hair. There’s more detangling involved. More parting my hair into quadrants and applying product on tedious section at a time, but I’m beginning to see more of what I want and less of what I don’t. I invested in a Denman brush that I quickly gave to the girls, and a Tangle Teezer, which is fan-freaking-tastic. I got my hands on another set of products called Komaza and thus, adequately armed, jumped back into the natural, curly girl fray. Here’s what happened.
|It’s rough, I know.|
I washed with Miss Jessie’s Super Slip Sudsy Shampoo. It’s very slippery in your hands, but feels tacky once it’s on your hair. It claims to remove all product build-up and leave your hair manageable, but my hair felt really dried out, even while wet (if that makes sense). I suppose that was a testament to how truly clean my hair was. After the shampoo, I used Komaza’s Califia Leave-In Conditioner and combed it through with my Tangle Teezer. I wrapped a tee-shirt around my head, got out of the shower, and got dressed. Once I was dressed, I unwound the tee-shirt and my hair was very damp. I sectioned it off and then used Komaza’s Califia Moisturizing Cream and finger styled the rest.
|Squeaky clean. Hair was still pretty wet. Just put in the product.|
By the end of the day, I was still pretty pleased with my hair, though there was some curl shrinkage. I really want a product that is going to be heavy enough to let my curls hang down, but not something that is going to dry them out and cause frizz. And since I’m making requests, I’d also like $10 million a year, every year for the rest of my life. Thanks.
|End of the day. Dry hair, lots of shrinkage (in my opinion)|
