In case you couldn’t tell from Wednesday’s post, my hair is a mess.
This is nothing new. It’s been a part of my life for a long, long time. Nothing I try really seems to help, but then again I am not that great to actually sticking to something. So I am going to start really, really working at sticking to a routine, once I find one that works. Since I am not constantly on the move trying to shoot outfit posts anymore, I should have more time to do it. Scratch that, I am going to make myself do it, and I am going to chronicle everything right here on this blog for you see.
Obviously, I have been doing quite a bit of research. Originally, I wanted to DIY everything. There are plenty of shampoos, hair masks, conditioners, and ideas out there, but the problem with the Internet is you can never be too sure of the science behind anything you find on Pinterest. Most of the homemade shampoos call for castile soap, which, according to /r/HairCareScience is terrible for your hair.
So that was out.
Then, I looked into baking soda. Yes, lots of people doing the no poo method with baking soda…. and stripping their hair.
So finally, I have decided to go with the store-bought options, but only companies using all natural and cruelty free ingredients. For now, I am trying Shea Moisture Manuka Honey shampoo, but we will see how that works out.
I’ll be creating and trying hair masks, overnight treatments, protein treatments, dry shampoos…. anything to lock in some moisture and keep this nasty frizz at bay. I’ll upload a weekly diary to keep track of both good and bad results, and hopefully all us long hair voluminous babes can help each other out.
Do you have any suggestions for poofy, dry hair that breaks easily? I have been doing coconut oil treatments, but even that only helps so much. I am all ears, and hopefully we can all help each other. I would love to chronicle stories about lots of different types of hair and their care to help my fellow women.
