My first curlformer set of the year was a definite success. I got four days of curls!
I didn't wash my hair this week. I know that's bad. My hair will spend the week in French twists.
At the moment my hair is still really soft. I added some Olive oil to my scalp to deal with itchiness and moisturized with Original Moxie Leave-in. It's crazy how much easier it is to style my hair, when it's properly detangled during the wash session. I feel like such an idiot. I have been abusing and ripping my hair for six months. Thank goodness I had a good amount to start off with or I'd be bald now. But on the flip side, I have lots of broken pieces which means I can't wear a slicked back bun. All of those little pieces stick up. My goal now is to be more careful and continue to detangle gently and thoroughly.
For the first time in months, I don't feel the urge to buy a new product or try something that's working for someone else. It looks like perfecting my techniques (washing, detangling) may be a little more important than trying tons of products. However, I have plenty under my sink to last a while.
The six month roller setting challenge is barely a month old and it has already helped me so much. I hope this continues.
Side note: I'm slightly concerned that my last press may have caused a bit of heat damage to my new growth. I don't know. I may just be paranoid.
