Okay, it been a few days since I’ve posted…. have you ever had a week where you had a plan- made free time to get everything done and STILL managed to run out of hours in the day….Ridiculous how quickly the hours go when you need them….
Because of this lack of time I have a new hair routine. The routine has a few parts- which i will elaborate on over the weekend, but the MOST important part I will focus on now.
When I was applying the “Cherry Lola Treatment” a few Saturdays ago, I started thinking about the post on Naturally Curly, which is about uncooperative crown. And how for some people, like me, it always gets fuzzy. Frizzy crown, coarse crown, my crown won’t curl… I read a lot of these complaints. I have a lot of these complaints myself.
So yes, it got me thinking. About my shower head.
You see, the softest, smoothest, least frizzy part of my hair is the hair around my ears and the under side of my head. These areas are also the parts that are least bombarded by the some what hard and pounding shower stream that come out of my shower head.
When I do the CL treatment, my curls really pop. I want to keep those curls. SO I decided to try this: Instead rinsing my head under the shower, and messing up the curl I gently poured water over my head with a jug. It takes about 20 pours to rinse the treatment out completely. But because the water is flowing down in a smooth stream, I don’t lose to much of the curl.
I ‘ve been doing this even when I co- wash, and the difference it has made in my hair – particularly the crown – it is amazing.
