Happy Hump Day!
If you’ve ever had a style that was a disaster in either appearance or how your hair felt, read on!
Initially, my hair was styled in a frohawk. My intentions were to wash my hair out as soon as possible due to the tremendous amount of product build up and flakes I had throughout my hair, but time didn’t really permit so I had to make due with what I had.
The coils you see to the right were achieved by using the slim blue perm rods. My hair was flat twisted upward on each side and rubber bands were added to secure the twist. Rubber bands are a serious no-no for both relaxed and natural hair, so the first thing I did was to cut them out! Next, the coils were picked apart to add volume to the style and bobby pins to secure the style.
Though I hated the way my hair felt, greasy and slippery, I didn’t have time to wash it so I decided to re-style the frohawk. Initially I noticed that I had many knots on the ends of my coils; I tried to leave them alone, as pulling knots from dry hair will ensure more knots! I tried my best to leave them but it depressed me to see them! I decided that the only course of action available to me was to hide the ends, via a protective style!
Sometimes, you have to make it do what it do!
If you have build-up caused by excessive product use or you stretch your wash routine to 3 weeks or more, the best way to cleanse the hair and scalp is by either using a clarifying shampoo and/or conditioner. I do not use shampoo, but my house is full of natural clarifiers! Stay tuned for information about natural clarifiers right from your kitchen!
