I love summer. No more layers of clothes just to feel warm and my hair flourishes in the humidity of rainy weather. So me and my hair are happy. But wait a minute, summer brings much more than that and our hair may suffer damage instead of flourishing if certain precautions are not taken. In the midst of the beautiful hot African sun, plenty weddings and end of year parties, you want to still take care of your hair to make sure breakage is minimized as much as possible.
Hey you all. So I have been a little undecided on how to protect my hair this winter. A little bit late I would say but this year I wanted to stay away from extensions because my hair has quite some length to work with. So at first, twists were going to be my protective style. However, last week I did my mini twists as usual but in just over a week, they were looking horrible I just had to wear a hat to work. So much for a 4 hour stint, twisting my hair. Now, I don’t mind the hat to work thing but I just don’t want to wear a hat because my hair is in a sorry state. I want to wear it because it goes well with what I am wearing or I want to keep warm. This prompted me to revisit my decision hence the indecision.
For a natural head, glycerine or any product containing glycerine is a “use at your own risk” or is that so? Many naturals have a love hate relationship with glycerine and being one myself, I really do feel you. It has caused many a bad hair day for me when a supposed to be twist out or braid out becomes so mushy, frizzy and my hair shrinks to like 50% and as usual I end up going to plan B. So, to say I love glycerine, umm, not always I am afraid. But I don’t hate it either. It usually leaves my hair so soft and I can really feel that it is well moisturized when I spritz or spray with a glycerine containing product.
