Curly Girl -- have you heard about it? Based on a book written by Lorraine Massey and Deborah Chiel, it goes with the less is more approach. Drastically reducing or eliminating shampoos, focusing on moisture, and gentle brushing of the hair. There is very little daily maintenance, and it results (or claims to) the appearance of a perm.
My memory tells me that I tried this method, and it worked. The only problem was my hairdo was more chaotic than normal, something my husband noticed and mentioned. And for him to notice anything new about my hairstyle means it must have been rather chaotic. But, that was 2006. Life before kids. Before sustaining whiplash when moving from a morning of parenting to an afternoon of drafting and client meetings. My standards....well, they've changed. Curly Girl appeals to me. Ease each day, and a simple cut that I could get at any drop in hair cut place.
Have I lost some of you, those devoted to your stylists? Does anyone have suggestions or thoughts? It's summer, and I need a new, frugal, look.
