No. 1: Erm, you’re fabulous?
Ok, I have to confess, this will in no way be 5 things anyone needs to know, whether you’re a curly girl or not, it’ll just be me typing away, kinda similar to the last 1, 2, 3. I just put that in the title because my husband keeps sending me articles like, ‘5 titles to grab your audience by the balls’ and ‘Make ‘em stop and read: 10 key words to put in your titles’ with advice like ‘Use numbering, people are essentially stupid and like to be reassured you will break things down into simple bite sized chunks’, ‘Use words like needs/need, if you tell them to, they will need you’, & ‘know, knowledge is power, tell them you’ll give it to them’, ‘aim to appeal to a specific audience member, imagine this person and write like your having a conversation with them’.
Now re-read my title, I’ve ticked all the boxes haven’t I? You stupid, needy, curly haired thing looking for knowledge, you!!
Except maybe the speaking to them like I’m having a conversation, cause if I spoke like that I’d be a twat. A twat with no friends. Or a twat with shit twatty friends. And I can assure you I’m not a twat and I have some friends and not all of them are twats.
The title I wanted to write was ‘Hair!’ Then this picture
But aforementioned hubby said it was shit so I acted dutifully and changed it to the above.
Anywhoo, I digress. What I believe you asked is how the hell is my hair nowadays?
Well thanks for asking. It’s kinda amazing.
So, before my hair was good. Then, when I gave up all my favourite products it was scary. Now, it’s working.
No 2: Try ‘Naked Curly Girls’ products.
They’re quite lovely. Boots had buy 1 get 1 half price so I bought 4, obviously. Shampoo, conditioner, serum and curl tamer.
Naked Bounce Curl Defining Shampoo
The Shampoo is ok, it smells absolutely delicious but it makes my hair feel mega squeaky and dry, which I hate, and it knots immediately at the ends so I can’t wait to get the conditioner on just to get rid of the feeling and untangle ASAP. In fact, no I take it back, its not ok, I’m really disappointed. It really doesn’t suit my hair type. I’d be interested to hear from anyone that uses this and loves it as it might be just because my hair is so dry. If you have used this please comment and let me know what you think but I definitely won’t be buying again. 2 bunny stars.
No 3: Don’t Use Shampoo
I have heard from 2 different sources that us curly’s should ditch the shampoo and just use conditioner so I might try it. I am scared of having a smelly head and itchy scalp but I’ve just had a quick search and this site has some great tips so I’ll let you know how it goes.
Naked Bounce Curl defining Conditioner
The Conditioner is lover-ly, it smells beautiful, it feels lush when it’s on and easily gets rid of most knots with hand combing and my hair feels conditioned when dry. It doesn’t have any of the minging chemicals that give me a crusty scalp, pretty perfect. I would recommend this to all curlys. Not much more to say really. 4 Bunny stars
Boots had sold out of the Naked Divine Curls, Curling Serum and pretty I’m impatient so I went for this. I use it straight out the shower before I brush (I can hear hairdressers gasping at the thought of me using a brush not a comb on wet curly hair but hey, it works for me). Two pumps, then brush like this:- 10 strokes at back, 9 left side (that is if parting is on right), 8 on right, 7 behind, 6 left and continue to 0, catching more behind everytime until it is all scraped back. Now I’ve discussed this hair brushing technique/habit thing with a few people and most think I’m a total freak but occasionally they’re like, yeah, I do weird things like that. I literally can’t brush my hair any other way. This, by the way, isn’t wisdom or advice, It won’t change how your hair looks in the end, its just something I need to do and I thought I’d share. Back to the serum, its fine, I am frizz free. 3 Bunny Points
