Anonymous: Okay! Big question time. Since you're one of the only people I know of that has hair like mine. What exactly do you do to treat it and keep the frizz down? What products do you use, how do you like to wear it most, what type of scrunchies do you use, what are your favorite hairstyles, how do you style unruly curly hair. The list goes on and on. I would love your insight.
I really don’t do anything very special. The only time I brush it is before I wash it (while it’s still dry). I try not to wash it everyday. On average I’d say it gets shampooed once every 2-3 days, but I’ve gone longer. The shampoos and conditioners I use lately are from Organix. My favourites so far are their shea butter line, mandarin olive oil, cherry blossom ginseng, acai berry avacado, and pomegranate green tea.
This company does not test on animals and all suppliers of their ingredients are required to confirm that their materials are not tested on animals.
As for what I use to style it, I work some of Andalou Natural’s Sweet Orange & Argan Styling Cream into my curls after a quick towel-dry post shower, and let it air dry with the product in it. This company does not test on animals either.
Sometimes, since my bangs are quite long now, I use the straightener to curl them back, just makes them a look a little more tidy if they’re having an off-day. Sometimes they look fine without it though.
Day-to-day, I really only have two hairstyles: up and down. The more playful looks you might’ve seen in some of my pictures aren’t suitable for my current workplace. Not to mention with my hair (or maybe my shitty hair skillz are more to blame, idk) it’s pretty futile trying to “plan” a specific hairstyle, you kind of have to submit to its will and go with the flow.
I don’t use scrunchies, but I use those standard black hair ties…the ones without the metal on them? The metal ones catch my hair, it’s a pain in the butt.
*shrugs* there’s not much else to say…aside from, regarding more elaborate hairstyles, “bobby pins are your friend.”
Hope that helped! Have a great day! <333
