I've got really screwy hair. LOVE IT.
(Sorry in advance for my blurry photos. And the excessive use of caps in this post.)
OKAY! LET’S PLAY CATCH-UP!
Been inconveniently sick–as opposed to conveniently so–for a few weeks and my hair was a wreck during that time…as usual.
When I caught a break 3 weeks ago, I tried to Porosity threw a tantrum and tried to give me a nervous breakdown. My fro was dry, dry, dry, and simply REFUSED to absorb all the conditioners, leave-ins, oils, and creams I threw at it, even when I left them in for over FIVE HOURS which would usually leave my hair baby-soft. This was deeply frustrating.
So I pulled out every hair oil, cream, and leave-in I could find in the house and started mixing like an unbalanced mad scientist–as opposed to a balanced one. The ingredients, from what I can recall:
Here’s what’s left of the mix:
Hey, I was on a lot of meds. But you know what? IT WORKED. Porosity died a horrible death-by-biological-agent and Hair was released from its desert prison. It was a “wet” mix and I twisted it in. The only downside is the slightly sticky residue, but I’d take residue over dryness ANY DAY.
Now, I don’t recommend this line of action for everyone. As I indicated, desperation played an active role in donning the mad scientist coat. I’m now getting together all-natural ingredients for a new mix. That’s up next.
