Trying different hair products for curly hair can be tricky. Some will work, and others won’t.
But what if I told you I got one brand that wasn’t working on my thick, curly hair to help improve my hair?
That’s what happened last month during a product review. As with most products, I like to follow the directions on the back of each bottle. Whether it’s a shampoo or a conditioner, I like to make sure I get the most out of my experience by trying it as it was intended for the consumer.
Although I did follow the directions and towel dried my hair before applying The Good Stuff No-Rinse Conditioner, I noticed my hair didn’t feel soft and would frizz as it would continue to dry.
It was my first time using The Good Stuff and I liked the smell of the product. What I didn’t like was the way it made my hair feel after it was dry.
Finding What Does Work
Determined to give the brand another try, I used my own technique. After brushing my hair, I jumped into the shower for a wash.
I used my fingers to combed through my curls with the shampoo and massaged my scalp. It felt quite relaxing.
After a good rinse, I combed my hair again using my hands, while squeezing the excess water from my hair. I then applied the Good Stuff No-Rinse Conditioner and placed my hair into a ball on top of my hair. This gave me a chance to bathe the rest of me.
Once I had washed my hair, I used the technique that I learned from Felicia (hif3licia) on Instagram. You can follow along on social media to see how she’s been inspiring other curly-haired women using the #hif3liciahelped
I let my hair air-dry and it was the best thing for my curls. After two months of adding heat to my hair, it was time I let my curls breathe again. That’s what I did.
Here’s an image of the coils I did, following Felicia’s tips:
My husband calls these dreadlocks. He thinks they’re pretty cool.
