I’m sat here right now with half a tub of conditioner (actually it’s a ‘hair moisturiser’) on my head, waiting for it to do its thing, and people – I’m about to tell you something SHOCKING!
When you gasp in horror at the revelation, all I ask is that you carry on reading, because it’s not as bad as it sounds, honestly! Here it is… I haven’t used shampoo on my hair for over 18 months!!!
OK, now firstly you have to understand that I am a ‘curly girl’. The curls that you see are all my own and it’s not the bad perm you may have thought it was! How this has affected me during all stages of my life so far is a whole other story that I’ll inflict on you some time in the future (I have a lot of time off over Christmas).
So, about 18 months ago, I discovered this web site, which recommended this book. Basically, if you have curly hair, the first worst thing you can do to it is use shampoo, the second worst thing is to use heat on it (i.e. a hair-dryer or tongs). Oh, and never brush or comb it!! So basically I just wash my hair every day with just conditioner (see, I do wash it), getting out any knots with my fingers, then I towel dry , a bit of hair gel to hold the curls in place and I’m ready to go! All I’ll say is that THIS REALLY WORKS! And if you have curly hair then you have to buy this book! Life is so easy now!
Me and the curls…
