You know what’s funny about low maintenance hair styles…they aren’t low maintenance. Two of my daily hairstyles are considered low maintenance. If my hair isn’t in a ponytail, the curls are out and about. A lot of work and hair product goes into it.
My hair is thick and curly. I used to get my hair relaxed, but I was tired of my edges getting burned. I cannot stand hot combs. I’m tender headed, which means I don’t have the pain tolerance needed to hot comb my roots.
So, I comb, pick, and brush my hair till one of us gives up. Those three starter items cannot win the battle alone. There are others that lend their strength.
My Hair Care Squad
The products below came into my life in different ways. Growing up, I did not go through my mom’s makeup, but I did try out her hair care products. A few decades later, I realize how much that must have aggravated her. Hair care hauls can be expensive! I try to avoid restocking the following items at the same time:
- Creme of Nature with Argan Oil – Perfect Edges
- Infusium – Repair & Renew
- Leave-in Conditioner
- S Curl No Drip – Activator & Moisturizer
- ECO Style – Argan Oil Styling Gel
- Motions Style & Create – Versatile Styling Lotion
Let’s not forget the support tools. To maintain order, I use Scunci hairties and hairclips. Then I wrap my hair with a bandana, Wave Builder stretch cap and beanie. Don’t let this picture fool you. Overnight, my rose and skulls bandana is not staying on by itself.
If I was getting ready for bed, those curls would be tucked under the bandana. I just felt like taking a selfie that day.
