I have #curlyhair, so I've grown to accept that my hair will probably always be somewhat dry and will probably never have that hair-commercial shine. Until about 3-4 years ago, I washed my hair every day (which is a huge no-no for us curly girls). It took some thyroid-related hair loss/breakage and scalp dryness to re-evaluate my #haircare routine, and it's been a process - one that I'm still working on perfecting. These days, I typically go 3-4 days (sometimes 5) between washes and usually don't wet my hair during that time at all if I can help it. When I do wash and condition, I use @mydevacurl's no poo and one condition, which give my thin, dry, weak hair the cleansing, moisture, and nourishment it needs. I've found that wearing a loose high ponytail to bed keeps my curls in place and manageable for the next day. Most of the time, I rock a topknot on the last day before a wash. You learn what works for you, ya know? I haven't switched up my routine in a while, but I recently tried this @batiste_us dry shampoo, designed specifically for brunettes - and it's a total #gamechanger. I was always afraid of dry shampoo because I thought you need to brush it through your hair after you spray it. I haven't brushed or combed my hair in years. In fact, I don't even own a brush (all my #curlygirls know what I'm talking about!), so I didn't think dry shampoo would work for me. Over the past few months, though - since coloring my hair for the first time - my roots have gotten pretty oily by day 3 between washes. So, I tried it, I'm obsessed, and I can't believe it took me so long to take the #dryshampoo plunge. This product instantly gives life (and volume!) to my roots, conceals the oil, and lets me go a little longer between washes, which makes my dry curls a little happier - especially now that it's winter. Just a spray at the roots, a little tszuj, and I'm good to go!
