Screwy Haired Girl

I've got really screwy hair. LOVE IT.

I am addicted to fonts. No, really. Like up-at-3am-looking-at-fonts addicted. I need help.

I’m also addicted to my hair.

I love my hair. Screwy hair is the most delicate, the thirstiest, and the coarsest of all black hairdom, so we need extra, extra loving care. And when you treat it right, it can be the most beautiful. I used to lust after other hair types, like the Walker 3’s, but for the past year or so, I’ve really come to appreciate having screwy hair. It took damage from a texturizer and slowly discovering how to pamper my hair to make me fall in love with it again. And to fall in love, I had to create my own hair care regimen. A good (and simple) regimen will help you love your screwy hair. There’s no one-size-fits-all regimen, but I believe knowing what our hair loves and what it doesn’t particularly care for can help guide the development of your own hair care regimen:

  • Our hair loves heavy natural butters and oils
  • Our hair loves lots of moisturizing and thick conditioners
  • Our hair loves frequent hydration and soft water
  • Our hair loves protective styling
  • Our hair loves to be trimmed every once in a while
  • Our hair is not a fan of hard water
  • Our hair is not a fan of high manipulation and likes to be left alone
  • Our hair is not a fan of excessive exposure

Our hair is beautiful. Treat your hair well and it’ll reward you with hair that’s the envy of everyone–even the weave queens :-)
