I love getting a trim. I usually wait til my hair is acting up and “crunchy” on the ends. Yes, that’s really a thing to me. My hairdresser just looks at me like “what???” But really, I can feel it. She’s good about taking very little off, because my ends are usually healthy, no split ends or anything. But just that tiny bit makes it feel so much healthier and act curlier and bouncier. So, are your ends “crunchy”??? Your hair will be happy again after you have a trim!February 27, 2017 at 10:06 am #20671
Hey Connie! Joyful has low porosity, curly hair and does the CG method! Hop on over to the Good Hair days thread and maybe she can help you out with your hair. Maybe give you some good pointers on how to deal with low porosity hair.February 28, 2017 at 3:19 pm #20724PennyParticipant
I’ve got a questions for your curly girls out there. I’ve a few friends with afro/coarse hair and want something for hair dryness. I made a hair wax for myself (beeswax, cocoa, sea, coconut, macadamia, ummm… my notes are over there, and some grapefruit essential oil) that is delightfully wicked for my hair. My friends have used it but they used almost an entire tub in one go! My 50g pot I’ve had for maybe four or five months you cannot even tell I’ve used it.
They are asking if I can make them a hair butter or a mask of some type as I complained that my one friend was eyeing my tub. So here is my wondering. If I were use a combination of these oils with some other goodies tossed in and make a thick lotion out of it, my theory is that it might be a better alternative to just the waxes.
Yup. I get to walk around for a while feeling up my friends hair.February 28, 2017 at 9:25 pm #20732CynnaraParticipant
I have a friend who is the same way. She’s been on my case about making her the ultimate hair butter conditioner. Her hair soaks up moisture because it’s coarse and unlike mine, doesn’t seem to keep her moisture as well. So, if you make a lotion, you need some serious moisture loving, humectants in there. Not too much where the opposite happens. So, it could work. Then you can create a hair masque to work on a deep conditioning. I’m planning on a custard like butter for Susan. Though now the lotion sounds awesome. LolMarch 1, 2017 at 7:53 pm #20750
I would say leave out the wax and go for a really thick butter or cream product. Most of the women I know with super coily hair are looking for a lot of moisture. Their hair is very dry because the oils from their scalp never make it to the rest of their hair. You may have to play around a bit with different oils or butters to see what works best, but I don’t think you can go wrong with a butter/cream product.
