The thought of blow drying my hair just makes me want to vomit. Sadly I don't have straight hair... and I don't really have curly hair. I have frizzy, wavy hair that sometimes curls.
Whatever, I couldn't handle the blowdry+flat iron routine in the heat.
So... all summer I've been putting (not so great) product in my hair and scrunching. There are days when it's not so bad, but the past two weeks have been horrendous. (I'm guessing it might have to do with the sad return of the synthetic hormone pill into my life... but that's another discussion).
The good thing about these faux, almost curls, is that pony tails look pretty darn great. A little bit of curl and we're good to go.
It also feels fantastic in the morning- cooling off my neck.
(my hair, somewhat curly, last weekend. Oh and Andrew :) ).
I've wondered just how much energy I've been saving by not blowdrying and flatironing my hair every morning. Probably not THAT much, however I know my hearing is thanking me (blow dryers can be loud, and you put them DIRECTLY in front of your ears). Also, I think it might be negated by the curling products I've had to use...
Although I was successful in creating a fantastic (and yummy smelling) hair pommade for Andrew using beeswax, that he still uses every day, I'm not exactly keen on trying to recreate the curl enhancing product for my hair. What I do think I'll try to recreate is the shining liquid that decreases frizz. I think it's some sort of synthetic petroleum based oil (ick!) and I wonder if natural oils would be absorbed too quickly into the hair, or if there is a type of oil that would be a happy medium?
Have you changed your hair routine for the humid, icky, summer?
