I hope you are enjoying your weekend! The weather in the DC area has been amazing and hot. Yesterday I decided to wash my hair but I wasn't in the mood to deal with the blow dryer. So I washed with my Wen cleanser and did a deep conditioning treatment with Butter Treat (by Redken). While the Butter Treat was sitting on my head, I mixed up a moisturizing spritz - water, glycerin and some Kemi oil. After I rinsed out the conditioner, I sprayed my hair with some spritz and then used Organic Root Stimulator Loc & Twist Gel (love this stuff and it's inexpensive) to coil my hair. And let me say that this took me a good hour, maybe a little bit longer. I wasn't terribly happy with my hair when I woke up because of the dreaded shrinkage issue that I deal with, but the curls were defined and coily. Take a look at the pictures below and ignore the random two strand twists in the front. I had my hair pulled back all day so before I wrapped up my hair for the night, I had to do something with the semi-straight pieces in the front.
The one positive of air drying, is that my color looks great! I am not sure if it is from my spritz, the gel, the air drying or a combination of the three. But my highlights look great and my roots don't even look that bad. Dare I say that I will try no heat again next week? Maybe I'll two strand twist...
Your color is looking great.
I've mostly stayed away from heat for the past year and five months and can count the times that I did on one hand.
During those few times, it was to blow dry on low for a set that didn't completely dry before bed or after I awoke for work.
