My process

Hair results, Mornings, The Motion

This is how I do it.    

Whilst I’m in the shower I rinse my hair and rub the roots; I no longer use shampoo. Instead I hold my head under the shower and rinse My hair for about 5 minutes. 

Post-shower and the gentlest towel-dry (just so it’s not dripping everywhere), I work the conditioner through my hair, starting at my roots and running through to the ends.

    

I try and stretch it out, whilst being as gentle as possible. This usually takes about 5 minutes if I’m really taking my time, but this photo was taken when I was getting ready for work: I had 8 minutes exactly. 
  

Once my hair is nicely conditioned, u out it up in a bun. It looks light a tight one, but you wouldn’t believe, it’s easy to wrap your hair in a bun, by carefully twisting it up.  

I usually do this before work – it takes me no more than 10 minutes for me to really work the conditioner through my hair would you believe. I then leave it in a bun, up for the whole day and sleep on it. 

– I’ve yet to invest in silk pillows or consider wrapping my hair before bed to maintain curl prettiness, but like I said, this is my process. I’ll update you when I change it. 

The following day I’ll leave my hair up, usually until the evening, when I take it out and it looks like this:

  
As you can see there’s a touch of product on my hair -I usually leave it and within the hour it just moisturises in, I don’t do a damn thing! 

  
Ignore my face, I had suncream on. 

Thoughts on my hair – do you guys like it? 

I’ve been considering changing up my process by wrapping my hair in some sort of cloth / old t shirt, for those times when I sleep on my hair and it’s a bit damp (I hate such times). 

Please share your thoughts fellow hair-bunnies. I’m considering shipping my hair conditioner out to a few fellow bloggers in the next few weeks. If you’d like some, get in touch.

  1. Love your hair when you take it out of the bun! It’s so big! What I do when I come out if the shower (my hair already in sections or in a protective style) Is I tied my hair up with a t-shirt or pants for about 10 minutes. I try not to leave it for any longer because it is very absorbent and I wouldn’t be able to put my conditioner in with very dry hair. I would recommend the t-shirt idea. And i would love to receive some of your conditioner. I will get in contact with you.

  2. I also have thick curly hair. It’s a bit short at the moment but I will definitely try putting it in a bun and seeing what comes out. Usually when I put it in a bun and then take the bun out it’s a hot mess.

    Maintaining curls is not easy…I always pineapple my curly hair and wrap it in a silk scarf at night 🙂
