I have been on vacation in Metro Atlanta for a month. I hadn't properly cared for my hair since the first day I got here. I just recently started focusing back on my hair. The winter winds up here are harsh. I have read and heard about people not detangling their curls for a month, but I will NEVER do that again. All in all, I am pleased. It didn't take me as long as I expected since I perfected my detangling methods. I did, however had to cut two dreads out of my hair.
As a curly haired person, I have to be willing to accept the fact: that it is in my hair's nature to want to curl around itself.
But, as a curly haired person, I have to be the barrier to keep my hair from doing so. I need to get back on a hair regiment, and I am brainstorming a modified one compared to my normal one I do when I am back home. Had I known that I would be up here for so long, I would packed my arsenal of hair care products. I never noticed how dry and parched my ends are. They have never been properly trimmed, and I am going to take on the my first "real" trim tomorrow. I am buying a good pair of hair cutting scissors. I am thinking I will get my friend or myself to lightly flat iron my hair, and then I am going to chop probably a good 1" off my curls. I am working on caring for my hair on the bare minmals.
