Curly Girl Experiment Update
For the past few weeks I've been using a modified "curly girl" method for my hair care. Why? It is supposed to give your hair bounce and curl, essentially looking like you've had a perm, but didn't have to pay for one. The results, okay. As the book recommends, I don't wash my hair daily. Instead, I rinse with baking powder (I keep a plastic shaker bottle in the shower). I have to apply conditioner to the ends about every day, and wash about every 3 or 4 days. My hair is much fuller than before. So, it looks like I've received a perm (great when you have long thin hair), an reducing the amount of hair care product, and am using very natural products. Seems like a win-win to me.
