Sometime in January or February I started wearing my hair natural almost completely. It wasn’t a decision I put a lot of thought into. I was teaching swim lessons pretty much every day and it wasn’t worth it to straighten my hair in the morning to have it ruined in the afternoon so I started learning how to care for my natural hair and make it look good without using heat. The main things I’ve changed are pretty much never using my hairbrush and replacing it with a wide-toothed comb, and using sulfate free shampoo, conditioner, and styling products. I’ve formed a kind of routine of how I wear my hair.
I usually wash my hair every other day. After I get out of the shower I comb through my hair with a wide tooth comb or my brush (The only time I use my hairbrush is when my hair is wet.) and put a small amount of this product from Shea Moisture I usually get it at Target) all throughout my ends first and then scrunch what is left on my hands in my roots.
If I’m showering in the morning I just let my hair air dry after putting product in but if I’m showering at night I put my hair into a chunky french braid. The braid slows down my hair drying enough that in the morning I can take it out and let my hair dry the rest of the way and take my normal curl pattern.
I usually wear my hair down on the first day after I wash it. Overnight I wear my hair in a bun. In the morning I take it down and comb through with a wide tooth comb. Depending on how my hair looks I’ll either wear it down again, put it in a side braid or tie it up in a bun again. If it’s greasy, I add some dry shampoo. I really like the one by Batiste. Right now I’m using the cherry scent. I usually get it at Ulta.
Is your hair straight or curly? How do you usually wear it?
Have a great day!
