So, a little backstory: Pic #1 was taken November of last year (2017). My hair was at it's best just 6 months ago. Pic #2 was just a few days ago. This fluffy "halo" I've developed is really frustrating and not at all attractive. Not sure what went wrong. The relentlessly long, dry, cold winter? Constantly having my hair in a ponytail? Age? (I got my first gray hair and it really seems to be sticking around.) Change in body chemistry? (People say your body "resets" every 7 years and I just turned 42. Coincidence? Maybe not.) A bad haircut? Probably a combo of all the things.
So, I started on my quest for a new, super hydrating routine. Much to my surprise curly hair care has come a long, LONG way since I first did my big chop over 20 years ago. My standard routine for years has been a wash and go with conditioner and Eco gel. I really had no complaints and I always got lots of compliments! I thought I had found what worked for me and had no desire to change it up.
The problem is, aside from being on a strict budget, I'm just a cheap person at heart. I have no desire to buy tons and tons of products that may or may not work for me. It's been really hard to go from a basic routine that cost me less than $5 a month to trying multiple products that range from $4 to $15 a piece. And most of those didn't work for me.
So that brought me here. I'm sharing my journey in hopes of helping other curly folks in my position and also hoping to get tips from those who've already been there!
