It was so shiny and bouncy that I was walking around shaking my curls back in forth like I was in a Soul Glo commercial:
But then I came back to Nashville's hard water and not only did my hair get dry but the combination of Kinky Curly and Shea Moisture Curling Souffle' didn't work as well anymore. I really thought I had found the perfect combination of hair products but now I see that it depends on the water I am using. Although Melissa wrote about hard water in September, I had no idea how key that was.
Here is a picture of my hair now:
It looks and feels a bit dull. When I wash it this weekend, I am going to use Apple Cider Vinegar to clarify and get a good hair mask to restore some moisture and shine. Those are just a few things that I can do short term. However long term I would love to get Jonathan's Beauty Water Shower Purification System
Back when his reality show was on the air, I remember watching how he came up with this concept. I believe he couldn't use the water in his home for some reason so he used Evian water on his hair. Never again did he want to use LA tap water. I think this may be a birthday present to myself because Nashville's hard water is not letting my curls live up to their full curly potential. In the meantime, I will be making sure to protect my hair and its shine by continuing to use a sulfate-free shampoo and less products with silicone in them. Silicone can cause too much build in your hair if you aren't careful and make your hair really dull. Until I can get my filter, I guess I will be on the hunt for my perfect combination of hair products again.
And why do they say wearing natural hair is easy again?
