I have a little dilemma here. My hair is wavy, and the only way to get it to be straight is to blow-dry it, which dries it out, leading to split-ends and having to have it cut, lest it looks like a broom. Is there any other way of attaining this without drying it? Whenever I allow my hair to dry out naturally, it is totally unmangaeable, frizzy as hell, and I scare people. Blow-drying gives it the softness, manageablility, straightness and non-bad hair days I crave for.
Yesterday, my Mom cut my hair, because it was looking terrible
and damaged. She cut about 4" off of it, and today I've made a new-years' resolution. I want longer hair, and I'm going to start taking better care of it to attain this. I bought a boar's head brush today (which I hear is much better for the hair) and several conditioning/moisterizing creams for it. This afternoon, I totally slathered my entire head, put on a shower
cap, and spent the whole afternoon like that. Then, I rinsed it out in cold water (more like room-temperature) and tried to blow-dry it using cold air, but it was taking forever to do that,
so I put the dryer on 'warm' and held it further away from my hair as I dried it.
I'm going to buy some Shea Butter tomorrow and apply it to my ends as often as I can so it'll grow longer, without breakage.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me to do anything else?
Thanks for reading.
