My hair has always been curly, In my childhood my mum insisted I wore it short. As an adult I grew it to shoulder length and it was a frizzy mop and got wider so I had it all cut off.
About 10 years ago I began to grow it and then I found Curly girl. around a year ago when I was considering cutting my hair short again.
I resisted cutting and have tried to be curly girl, watching videos and reading the book.
I think I have type 3a/b hair with some straighter greys appearing (Well I am 47)
I co-wash with tresemme
Then I condition with Naked conditioner
Comb with a wide comb
Then I plop, This is new to me and does give a better finish.
Add UG flirty curls or Boots curl creme and go (sometimes I do not add this)
When my hair is dry it is dry looking and needs something more. (Moisture)
I have tried a protein conditioner which helps a little, but it is expensive and time intensive so I cannot use it every time- I use it monthly.
Day two hair is more frizzy, I ‘pineapple’ sometimes at night. but when I however i scrunch in a little water and go. It ends up getting more frizzy so then I add coconut oil or AG Mango butter coconut whip- which my hair appears to drink.
I think my hair is not very porous as products need help to be absorbed- gentle rubbing etc.
How can I reduce my frizz? How do I add more moisture without spending hours in the bathroom and a fortune on products? or am I just too lazy to be a curly girl?
