My least favorite stuff is washing and blow drying my hair, but my favorite stuff is twisting my fresh and shiny hair into a soft cinnamon bun or ballerina twist.
Washing My Hair Is My Least Favorite Thing
Why is washing my hair a least favorite task? Although I only do a full wash and blow dry every 7-10 days, it’s a major production because my hair is extremely long, medium to thick and has natural curls interspersed with waves. It’s taken me 20 years of trying a wide range of cleansing techniques to get a great wash down to an art.
While I know it’s best for my hair to be plopped, diffused and air dried to enhance my curl and waves, I enjoy the feel of soft barely there waves cascading down my back. My favorite stuff? I love to wrap my hair into an array of twists which are easier to achieve when my hair is only slightly wavy and not so much when its super wavy or curly.
To Section Or Not To Section?
