Then I started highlighting, using expensive products to combat the dryness and damage and getting $200 haircuts (plus tip) to get volume and enhance the curls I was blessed with. I won't ever regret SAVING the thousands I'd spend on products as well!!
Now, I'm pretty happy with the versatility of my hair. I'm even more happy with how little I have to do and spend for a healthy scalp and head of hair!
Above is in March, after a long, cold, dry winter 20 months low and now no poo. This is 2 weeks after henna with 2tbsp of coconut milk as my wash, rinsed with only water, then a week later, flat ironed on medium heat and a little jojoba oil added.
