Yes, this is my hair. I've been experimenting in the laboratory again. Some of you may remember my earlier attempt with embracing my little waves. My hair is much longer now, and this time I had pretty good results. As is always the case with me, if it's not one thing, it's two.
In the last episode of Rock the Silver®, Donna seemingly sprained her wrist. I've since learned it is broken, and I'm now sporting a cast. As a result of this temporary disability, it has been difficult to do much of anything with my hair. I certainly can't blow it dry without looking like the Bride of Frankenstein. I decided to try wavy girl again, and purchased DevaCare Low-Poo (shampoo) and DevaCare One Condition (conditioner) for curly/wavy hair. Both products are free of sulfates, parabens and silicones.
I'm using a clever plastic sleeve thing over the cast for showers, so I can wash my hair. I actually only wash it every few days, but I wet it down at night and add a dollop of conditioner. I use a microfiber towel to squeeze out excess water and comb through with a wide-toothed comb. Blow my bangs with my good hand, and then just let it air dry. It would look awesome if I had the time to do all that before work, but I don't. It's pretty much dry by the time I go to bed.
The first few times I tried this method, I was not pleased with the results. My hair was tangled and frizzy. Then I read about silk pillowcases. I purchased this one from Amazon. Holy cow! I wake up with second-day hair that is soft and wavy. I am stunned and excited to have an option that reduces my hair's exposure to heat.
The silk is also supposed to be good for minimizing face wrinkles, so what's not to like? Well, I probably prefer the feel of high-count cotton, but I can learn to like silk just as well, I think. Those of you with short hair or really thick long hair probably don't have the tangling problem and don't need a silk pillowcase, but for the rest of us, it's a gift.
I know it is made in China. I do my best. Oh, and just so you know, typing with one finger might be my singular talent. I'm very good.
