I washed my hair Saturday. I actually enjoyed the experience, mostly because I didn't lose a lot of hair de-tangling, and I really liked how my new growth felt. While it was wet. I was invited to a day party, so I felt like I had to do something, so I let it air dry and then attempted to blow dry and flat iron it. FAIL. Why did I even do it to myself??? There was so much hair on the sink, and although my hair was straight, there really wasn't any body or life to it. I was able to go to the event looking decent, but...the next day my hair looked ridiculous, even though I wrapped it. Yesterday I wet the ends with a water/aloe vera mixture to try to give it some life. When it dried, I applied moisturizer and oil and did a few bantu knots. This morning it looked pretty, but it's misty outside and my hair was straight again before I even got to work. Ugh.
I know that really should not be putting heat in my hair like that. I probably would have been better off trying to pull it into a bun. The only thing is that my edges get so fuzzy because I still haven't learned to tame them. I'm not sure I ever will.
Back to my liking how my new growth felt when it was wet. Maybe I just need to find the right product to keep it moisturized. As always, I appreciate any suggestions.
