Curly hair comes up a lot in my world. I have heard this from countless people: “I know someone who has curly hair, not as curly as yours but….”
Imagine my surprise when we were getting ready for Rachel and Justin’s wedding and the hair stylist said: “Meghan has curly hair – even curlier than yours.”
That was the moment all the curl girl advice came tumbling from my voice box. I couldn’t help it. A fellow curly girl?
Must share curly girl advice!
Here are the things that have changed my curly life:
A) Reading Curly Girl
B) Removing shampoo from my life completely
C) Using enormous amounts of conditioner – with no cones in the ingredient list (these are any ingredients that end in -cone … they cause buildup)
C) Never ever brushing, only finger combing in the shower with conditioner filled hair
D) A big handful of clear gel
E)Plopping – seriously changed my life and only a recent discovery
That’s my secret (but, being the extrovert that I am … well … I don’t really have secrets). I still have crazy hair days but overall I’m always pleasantly surprised. It’s easy and I feel comfortable wearing my hair down. Amazing. I know.
