This week in a nut shell? I made a special trip to the store on Wednesday to purchase a head scarf and a boar bristle brush. Any questions?
Here some details, the top part of my hair has been a bit oily (yuck) since the beginning of this week. I figured the head scarf should cover most of that problem and I read that the boar bristle brush will help “distribute the oil more evenly through hair, boosting shine”. More shine sounds good, who doesn’t want more shine?
The curly girl method says to only brush your hair with your fingers . So the brush was against the rules, but it was time to do something. I brushed my hair, A LOT, before bed. I noticed a huge improvement in the amount of oil and the shine was definitely boosted. I continued to brush my hair each evening this week , however, I am now having problems with frizz again and my curls are not as nicely defined. Can you tell? How about in this picture?
Yep see that frizz? Yikes, no more boar brushing for me. Honestly my hair looks OK. I wore it down to church this morning and no one asked why my hair looked gross. I even had someone tell me they liked my curls, but they read my blog so they had the inside scoop or maybe they just feel sorry for me. I did use the head scarf for church this evening, but that was more because of the frizz factor.
A blog reader asked for a picture of my hair before going no shampoo in order to compare, ta da!:See? Wave but not really curl.
She also asked for a greasy picture. Do you think that I have no shame? Well, I have posted some very honest things. No, I’m not going to link to them again, I do have some dignity. (Pssst, look at the Not Me Monday category.) Seriously though, the above pictures are the best that I have. I’ve got to say that the oil has not really been bad enough to see on film just bothersome to me, but I have a long way to go, so stay tuned. We may get some good bad photos yet.
