My First Time Having Sex at College
Over the years, I've learned that many of the products I have listed here are NOT curly girl friendly. And I'm still learning and figuring out what works best for my hair. Thank you for those who have commented and shared their experiences to help me along the journey! I was in desperate need of a haircut, was wearing a lot of ponytails, the weather was humid and atrocious, and I had read about this " Curly Girl Method " and figured I'd see what it was all about. The handbook convinced me to give it a try - for at least 6 weeks. I was wearing my hair curly most days anyhow with all the insane Alabama humidity, so why not try to make it look better when I did wear it that way? Plus, it looked like the process would be pretty easy Okay, let me explain It had been about a year since my last haircut. Quit using shampoo - cold turkey. Evidently sulfates are a big no-no for curly girls. Use a light conditioner - I used Suave Naturals Conditioner - just on my fingertips, and vigorously massage my scalp with it. This is supposed to remove all the oils, dirt, hair product, dead skin, etc. Rinse hair thoroughly, starting to detangle with my fingers. Apply a deeper moisturizing conditioner - I used Giovanni Conditioner - from the bottom up covering the ends first and moving upward in a scrunching motion. Comb through with a wide-toothed comb to remove tangles and loose hairs. Scrunch again and let conditioner sit on your hair for a couple of minutes. Rinse hair gently, but not completely, leaving much of the conditioner in it. Squeeze hair dry in the shower as much as possible, still using that scrunching motion. Use a t-shirt to scrunch the curls dry, squeezing out more water. According to the book, terry cloth towels can cause a lot of breakage, but cotton doesn't. Let hair finish air drying. About an hour later, I would turn my head upside down and shake my hair out, scrunching the curls to "release the gel cast" from the gel. So that's the method I used Week By Week Results First Maybe not especially since she has about a foot of length on me and is some sort of model. But we all start with a wish, right? These photos were taken just after my haircut and my last shampooing, with just some mousse scrunched in my hair. I let it air dry. As you can see, it's kind of wavy, a little bit frizzy, but not so awful, the curl is just a little uneven. And I felt like I was getting some odd looks from people who see me often. My guess is, since they didn't say they liked it, they thought my hair looked crazy. I and my hair are more used to the process now - not using shampoo and using lots of conditioner and lots gel. I can see that my hair looks a little bit bouncier and the curl is more even. That way the roots just got cleansed and massaged, but not overly conditioned. That appeared to help. This photo below was taken at about 3 weeks into my experiment. Seeing the photo was the first time I thought - Wow! My curls actually look pretty! I would REALLY like to shampoo my hair this week about this time I probably should have tried a warm water and baking soda rinse to remove some product buildup , and I'm dying to just brush it and wear it straight for a few days. A six week experiment is a six week experiement. So, instead, I start shopping for a different gel since it still gets pretty frizzy by the end of the day. I did a one-day trial with some Suave Mousse and no gel - and it was Frizz City! Back to the gel I went I spent most of this week dreaming of straightening my hair and being able to run my fingers through it without them getting stuck. I actually had a dream about using my flat-iron. While doing this exeriment, I always liked the way my hair looked better when I showered in the morning and let it air dry, rather than when I let it air dry at night and then slept on it. I still have a lot to learn, and there are lots of great recipes that I'd like to try - such as a lavender mist spray to revitalize your curl, or a brown sugar scrub to exfoliate your scalp, and a baking soda rinse to remove product buildup. Maybe I'll try those sometime soon. Here are some great recipes if you want to try them - Curly Concoctions. Is it possible to be a partial curly girl? I'm going to continue working on finding a formula that works for me. Right now, I'm thinking it will include an occasional sulfate-free shampoo and occasional flat-ironing too -- even if the true curly girls think that's from the Devil!
