Jan 2012 Photo A Day Challenge – Day 7 – Favorite

Day 7 is “favourite” – in the USA spelling it is favorite.

I was fresh out of creative juices…

so…  I chose to photograph my favorite thing about me, my hair.

I grew up in the 60’s with all the l-o-n-g, super straight hair being “in”.  Even at that time my hair was not curly, simply wavy.  It got curlier as I got older.

Many years ago I decided to try growing it long.  At the time it was slightly longer than shoulder length.  The Patriarch has always liked long hair.  I has always wanted long hair.  My mom kept it on the shorter side, she didn’t think it would ‘curl’…  it does!  🙂

It is actually easy to care for.  The only time I brush or comb it is right after I wash it.  I NEVER use shampoo… don’t be grossed out now, it IS clean.  What do I use?  Cream rinse only.  I ‘scrub’ it around with my fingertips, comb out, rinse and then ‘scrunch’ it kind-of dry.  Curly girls should NEVER use shampoo.  Our hair is quite dry, hence the NEED to use the cream rinse only.

Curly hair also requires a different kind of cutting, which is DRASTICALLY different than cutting straight hair.  You NEVER pull curly hair straight to cut it!!  You cut each curl separately.  Since I know NO ONE who can cut my hair like that…

I cut my own hair.  You can read more about curly hair in a great book, “Curly Girls”.

    Your hair is beautiful. I would have thought cream rinse would relax your hair too much to curl, but it must not.

    • Thank you so much. Cream rinse doesn’t relax the hair at all. Unless you get one that has those kinds of ingredients in it. The cream rinse helps with the fly-a-way frizzles and helps the hair retain moisture… which we curly girls REALLY need! 😀
