My hair is curly and neither thick nor thin. For my 2013 resolution, I vowed to stop heat styling it (blow dryer, flat iron, and curling iron) every day and just let it do what it wants. It has taken me 8 months to finally accept my curls, and to make peace with them. In return, my hair has been behaving nicely and is much healthier than when I started this last December (I cut all the damage off before the new year).
So, let's start from the beginning of the day. I usually shower at night and then style in the morning.
|I'm surprised my boyfriend has stuck around for 3 years of waking up next to this!|
|Oh yes. Way out of control.|
I start by spraying it down with water.
|Sorry for the lack of makeup; I had just woken up.|
|There is hope after all.|
It's product time. I have tried a bunch of different mousses, gels, and creams, but this one is my favorite:
|Marc Anthony Strictly Curls Curl Defining Lotion|
It's even better than most of the non-drugstore products I've tried.
It was raining on the day I did this, so it's a little frizzy. Normally I will smooth some oil (Orofluido) over my hair to tame it a little more, but I wasn't going anywhere and didn't bother ;)
