A completely frivolous post about hair

After a wonderful vacation to a hot and humid tropical island, after a shorter haircut than I’ve had in a while (about shoulder length) I am once again reminded of the utter pointlessness of doing anything to try to control my hair. I literally almost had dreads after 2 days in the ocean. Which brings me to my next point: I need to get dreads.

Just kidding, there is nothing worse than a white girl with dreads.

I need to somehow harness the inner curly turmoil of my hair and just own it. Apparently its not actually ‘curly’ but more, wavy or even better s’wavy. I usually dabble in the crunchy mousse, but there’s no way I can wear that two days in a row. And frankly, it just always looks wet. I haven’t bought any in years. I want to keep the fluff!

I did no ‘poo for a year and it just killed the inner wavy. I’ve been reading more recently about the modified no ‘poo of the curly girl method and I’m going to make a conscious effort to try that out.

I’ve tried to make my hair something its not for my whole life. It seems right about time (hot muggy weather coming my way!) to just admit that I need a little product and to figure it out.

My top goals are to:

1. Figure out how to not make my hair look so, so so, frizzy (some frizz is inevitable, and maybe endearing?), and

2. Figure out how to wear wavy/curly hair multiple days in a row. Because I’m really lazy and do not shower everyday.

Anyone out there figure out some routine that works?
