|My bun: Not fancy but it was sooo soft!|
My fellow Georgians (and people in the Southern US in general) would know that this week has been pretty wet and yucky...
If you read my last wash-day post, you'll know that I was feeling pretty upset with my hair's moisture levels (or lack thereof...) since my last relaxer.
I decided to use the rainy weather to my advantage! Here's how:
The night before, I moisturized my hair heavily with a moisturizer that contains glycerin (I chose to use HairVeda's Busy Izzy Gets Buttered Up) and baggied overnight. The next morning, I fashioned my hair into a sleek bun and headed out the door.
After doing this for three days in a row, my hair feels super moisturized (even though it looks a reverted, textured H.A.M.).Because glycerin is a humectant, when used in your hair it pulls the moisture from the air to your hair! And on a rainy Atlanta day, there's plenty of moisture to spare!! (Note: if you live in a dry/cold/arid environment, using glycerin may not be such a good idea as it will have the opposite effect--sucking moisture from your hair.). All day I couldn't stop smushing my super soft bun!
How do you use the weather to maximize your hair regimen?
Until next time,
