7 months post big chop. Things that have changed since then
I no longer use shampoo. Not even just once in a while. Ive discovered it dries my hair out.
I keep it simple. I do not buy a bunch of expensive styling products. I cowash my hair everyday. I would just end up washing product right out.
I now use gel in my hair. I always hated gel. I recently gave it another try. It gives me atleast 2nd day curls.
I still pretty much let my hair air dry. I recently realized that Blow drying gives it more length and volume. Also experimented with gel . I was able to get perfect 2nd day hair with gel and a blow dryer. Both things that I never use.
I most likely wont be doing this every day because like I said, It is hard for me to get past 2nd day hair and not have to restart. And for me, that is a long process. I do wanna try a diffuser however. Although this new routine gives me great results, I cannot do this every 2 days. I am too busy and I would have to wake up even earlier. So, Maybe when my hair gets longer. It barely covers my ears when wet. And dry , it doesnt really either. Anyway. Yes, my 7 month big chop photos.
