I was recently surfing the web and decided to check in on some of my favorite hair sites and bloggers. They are all saved in my “favorites” folder in my web browser. So I took a sip of tea, and dug into my seat.
I was excited because I’ve been under the weather for a while and I hadn’t been online in almost 3 weeks! Sooo….. I pop open my favorites tab and click on…..
Which one? It struck me as I looked at my folder that there were 14 -yes, 14- sites saved in my folder. Now I love to learn new things, but I must admit that there were quite a few of them that I did not look at much anymore for various reasons. One of the main reasons may be that there is just too much info out there right now.
Too much, you ask? I’m crazy, you say?
Allow me to explain. I got my first relaxer at 7. I big chopped at 18. I got a texturizer at 18. I mini big chopped at 19. I got a press and curl at 25. I big chopped again at 27. And almost 2 years later, I no longer use heat, and my hair is about shoulder length. I only trim when absolutely necessary.
So I have used a lot a various methods in the past 10 years. My hair has never had a problem retaining length, because I know that no matter what, my hair needs moisture and simplicity to stay happy.
However, I have tried to change it up a bit, using different methods that I have found on my beloved hair sites, but my regimen always comes back to basics.
Am I disappointed that these other methods don’t work for me? Do I get discouraged that after I try a method, my hair doesn’t look like my favorite bloggers? Am I doing something wrong?
The answer to all of these is no. My hair is thriving because I know what works for her and I stick to it. But I DID come up with a brand new hair care method that everyone (you too, relaxed beauties!) can use. It is……
The Grain Of Salt Method
Seriously. Here are the rules, ahem, suggestions (I hate rules, ugh):
