A month and a half into my curly hair journey, and I think I’ve settled on @ouidad ’s Rake and Shake as the method for me. It doesn’t produce my tightest curls ever, but it gives the most predictable and consistent look and feel to my wavy hair: definition, shine, frizz control, and touchability.
It’s funny, because when I first decided to stop blow drying my hair, it was because I wanted less: less time spent fussing in the mirror, less product to achieve a certain look. And wouldn’t you know it, embracing my natural wave has actually done the opposite: I use more product and spend more time with the hair dryer than ever (unless I air dry) 🤷🏻♀️!
But I’m not complaining at getting a lil extra me time these days (#amiright )! Using all @ouidad on wash day: gentle shampoo and conditioner, rinsed completely, and the Tres Effects gel raked in and diffused until 100% dry. - 39 minutes ago
