My hair is naturally wavy, which means that if left to its own devices it will form spiral-looking waves. That sounds delightful in theory, but in practice I look like Merida. And if I brush it at the wrong moment, it goes full poodle and I end up having bigger hair than a Southern woman at a White Snake concert.
I’ve been using this conditioner and for a while it worked, but now we’re back to poofy hair. I need something with serious moisturizing power, because I color my hair and prefer to not do much of anything to it except for brushing it and possibly adding something to it while it’s damp. Straightening, blow drying, and fussing with it is right out. I only do that when we are on tour or at a conference.
One time, early in our career, we went to a con, and I thought I looked okay. We get home, I open Twitter, and the first thing I see is two women discussing my hair. Words like “You’d think she’d care enough to color her hair” were said. I typed out a really furious reply, but then decided it wasn’t worth it. I do color my hair now, but it’s not for the cons, it’s because I like how it looks. 🙂
So, BDH, lay your hair wisdom on me. Dry frizzy wavy hair. What can I use to make it less poodle?
