Thank you all for your wonderful and warm welcome! It's good to be back and I'm ready for some serious blogging! This new haircut is so old that it now needs a new haircut, but back when I had it - all new and fresh - it felt so great I had to tell you!!
My relationship with my hair is a love-hate one, described in many posts before: I used to have short hair. I looked great! Then I grew older and I got comments like: "you look like a 5-year-old" or "it's just not classy" e.t.c. (the comments may appear harsh, but we're Greek! We can handle the truth and we prefer it that way. They were coming from friends or colleagues). I grew them long - people like it better. They take you more seriously. I kept them long. I prefer them short. End of story.
So... I'm not your normal blogger that would give out advice for hair! But then a good hair cut like that comes and I'm instantly an expert!! I realized that my long curly hair look... pretty damn cool! And I didn't even have to style them or anything!
Combined with a black bohemian skirt, a studded skinny belt and a graphic tee you're ready to go! Here's what you do if you have hair like mine!
Tips for dry and curly hair:
1. Use a wide-tooth comb to detangle hair, preferably when they are dry (like before the shower). You minimize the risk of split ends and breakage.
2. Once a week give them a mask treatment with olive oil or almond oil. Simply massage it around your hair, wrap a towel and leave it from 15-30 min. (depending on the dryness). Rinse and shampoo twice. It does wonders!!
3. To refresh the curls the next morning, simply give them a few sprays of a leave-in conditioner. If you're too lazy or too unemployed like me to buy that, you can make your own! Use a teaspoon of your favorite conditioner, a few drops of oil (olive, almond, coconut, jojoba or any other natural oil) and a cup of water. Put in an empty bottle and shake!! Enjoy!
4. Careful on the towel- drying! You don't want to damage your hair! Just wrap a towel turban-style and leave it for 10 min. to absorb the water. Do not rub your hair with the towel! Ever.
|See? Nice and soft curls!|
I hope I helped you a little bit with your bad hair days! Maybe you know the tips already, but I had to learn them pretty recently!! See you around!
