Before I do my huge fashion blog post (which is taking me a little while to get together), I thought I thought I'd do a post on curly hair. After looking through this month's issue of Seventeen and noticing that they didn't offer any hair styles or good products for curly girls, I figured I had to offer my services forth to my spiral sisters.
Just to warn you, as much as we all want to believe in what magazines say, from now on, you CANNOT follow any hair advice you read in magazines. Same goes for anyone who tells you to use shampoo.
Ha, you're already shocked and grossed out, but if you're a curly girl, you'll probably try anything. Read on for the basics to curly hair and where to buy the curly girl bible.
Rules of Curly Hair:
1. You must not shampoo it. The detergents in shampoo, as you may have noticed, are causing your curly hair to be VERY FRIZZY. Not a big surprise when that sodium laureth sulfate from your LAUNDRY DETERGENT is the main ingredient in your number one hair product.
2. You must condition and use your conditioner as a shampoo. Do this by massaging your scalp the same way you would with shampoo, except that now, your scalp will be getting cleaned out and hydrated instead of fried to a crisp.
3. No more brushes. Finger brush only
4. Use a curl cream with gel, not a pomade or wax
Now that every belief you ever had about curly hair has been shattered. Recuperate, re-educate. Save your hair. Buy this book
While you're at it, you might want to buy this hair creme by Bumble and Bumble. One word. Amazing.
Now it's up to you grasshopper.
Time to curl up and dye!
