Hello, it’s been a while …
Apologies for the delay, life has been going at 100 miles a minute lately and I’ve been in and out of the country as well as up and down it. But kids, my hair has stayed so pretty after I discovered a new way to make my curls gorgeous and lock in moisture. Details and results below:
Can I just have a moment though? My hair’s really grown! Yes! Anyways, post-shampoo (where I literally rinse my hair under the shower head, no actual shampoo touched my scalp). I apply Jamaican black castor oil to my scalp. I’m not as thorough as I could be about this, but I do it almost all-over.
Yes I did spill a bit of oil down myself, let’s not dwell on it, shiny means moisturised in my books anyway…so I then get a small amount of my extra thick hair conditioner (what I used in Abu Dhabi in the 40-degrees heat, more of that in my next post), and work it through my hair.
As you can see, whilst I’m working it through and somewhat stretching my hair, it still shrinks – I suffer too, trust me.
My thirsty locks need extra-thick leave-in conditioner, especially when I’m in different cities, where the temperature drops/rises, so the product might look a bit thick for some people, cool, I know what my hair needs though, and this is it.
This video explains it a bit better:
So you’ve don’t the above? Great, the last time I practised the next step was bed time so I used it straight away, but if you have a few hours (like I did this time), allow the leave-in conditioner to sink in for at least two hours whilst you’re doing what you’re doing. When it comes to snooze time, grab a plastic bag.
Wrap it as best you can, as you would a scarf around your head. The plastic won’t absorb any product, meaning it stays nourishing your curls.
The results are stunning. Annoyingly I only took one decent photo because I was rushing that morning, sorry, but thoughts? I love how defined the curls were and soft my hair was!
And a random action-shot.
Thoughts below please; have you used the plastic bag method? Am I being really slow with this? It works better for me than wasting my product on a cloth or silk scarf that absorbs the leave-in conditioner whilst I’m sleeping. Thoughts fellow beauts. Thanks.
