Well, that only lasted for a couple days. (I refused to even take a photo of the very cushy bird's nest my hair had become as a result of the conditions). I even oiled my scalped and mixed and apply some shea butter mixture to my hair, hoping for something. Anything. I just wanted to make it to Sunday. AND I'd been keeping my hair in my fav Tracee Ellis Ross cornrow/ 2-strand around the head style (I don't have the fortitude at this time to find out the name of the style. This:
Anyway, it wasn't happening anymore (oh, it looked cute for MAYBE 3 days). All I know is as I undid my twisted cornrow style this morning and a couple of strands were in my fingers instead of attached my scalp, I literally said "Oh hell no! I like my hair. I miss my hair. Where's the spray bottle???" So After I walked my son to his summer camp, I came home, dropped my keys, and headed straight to the bathroom. Pulled out 8 hair clamps to section all of the massive hair on my head, refilled the spray bottle, pulled out some Creme of Nature Argan Oil Hair Reconstructor (yes, I used that sucka as a leave in because I felt my stuff was damaged!!! Am I overreacting a bit, sure, maybe, but it is what it is!).
I proceeded to spray a section, apply a very small (dime size) amount of the hair reconstructor, and my curls started immediately springing back. I damn near danced, in my bathroom, when I saw this. Then I added my trusty Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Smoothy. I went through each section, and instead of tension blow drying (oh no, we are staying away from any heat for am minute) and pulled it up into a wannabe bun. I added a little QP Glaze to my edges, and tied a silk headband around my hair. Here is what I 'm rocking today (minus the scarf):
(And yes, I am smiling, for real.) Whew!
