In my defence, it had been a weekend of summery sun and striding aggressively up hills in a sweat inducing way and so it was needed. And I stuck to using it on my scalp only.
But man, I'd forgotten how much I loved this shampoo bar- the coconut smell, and the way my hair feels when I put it on is divine. It feels wonderful. (I'm just uncertain as to the consequences of these snatched moments of bliss).
Then I conditioned with Original Source Mint and Tea Tree conditioner. £0.99 from Bodycare.
Next, I decided - "What about stretching with my Curlformers? It's been a while!"
The last time I used them, the Tresemmé had been too heavy, so back to my ever so dependable Giovanni's it was. And slicking on lots of newly defrosted flaxseed gel too.
I must have applied the Curlformers funnily though, because I only got 3/4 of my hair sorted.
Not to be deterred, I simply banded the last two sections and went to bed.
The sun arose and light poured into room. Sleeping had been slightly more awkward, probably because I spaced them closer together than usual but shh.
Removed the Curlformers to reveal the usual curls and apparently a mass amount of flaxseed gel residue that I hadn't noticed before looking at this photo.
Suddenly! I was struck! By inspiration! And the realization that I'd still had a Curlformer left in my head!
|Holding on despite the fact that Hide and Seek is clearly over...
Back to the inspiration.
Since my hair was (mainly) all stretched, I decided to put twists in. All I used was some coconut oil and they stayed fine.
The twisting was great, in that I didn't need to part since I'd already previously done it. But I hadn't parted it properly. So I got a, er, wide variety of sizes. Again.
I would like to believe that I won't mess with my hair again until next weekend, but it's been two days and I'm bored already...
