Mirror: “You look cute today”
Camera: “Lol, no”.
The camera has been rude to me. All this past week. Thanks to (1) the ridic, swamp-like D.C. humidity, and (2) my inability to find a leave-in/styler that would not only moisturize and define, but hold my Wash
do the most and Go. I ask a lot of my products. It’s out there. I will find it.
I promised y’all a favorite leave-in/styler post this week and it didn’t happen. I tried, though. I sat down to write it up and after taking a mental inventory, realized I don’t have a single one! I’ve got a bunch of ish in my product closet. Several I can get solid results with. None I would whole-heartedly recommend, though. I was on a kick and probably re-styled every day last week and it was fun experimenting… until it wasn’t. Also, after about two weeks of wash and gos, my hair is a little drier and the single strand knots start creepin’ on a come up. So yeah, I don’t have a favorite leave-in/styler. But I do have a favorite leave-in/moisturizer and a favorite, low-maintenance style. And I’m sure you know what both of them are 🙂
I was revelling over the ease of caring for and styling Gia’s Curlformered hair and although I had previously decided that I was done with the CFs for a while ’cause they took too long to install, I remembered that it actually only takes me 30 minutes… and most days, my #WashDoTheMostAndGo take just as long and I have to do them way more frequently. So I did a deep treatment with the new Aubree GPB (more to come on that) and threw them in on soaking wet hair, saturated with Oyin’s Hair Dew–
And now we’re back, easy-streeting it with the mom-bun…
