For some strange reason, my hair is getting a lot of compliments at work lately. I’m super flattered. I’ve always hated my flat, straight Asian hair. I still do. However, I’ve accidentally discovered a routine that make it volumized and shiny-ish looking.
Many of you are gonna freak out. I use shampoo only. Specifically, Dove shampoo. It has to be Dove shampoo.
I also don’t lather too much. I just focus mostly on my oily scalp and rinse.
Then I use a volumizing cream wax in the morning (tiny amount), lightly fluff it up, while smoothing out the frizz. It seems to be working amazingly.
I don’t really know what kind of damage I’m doing to my hair with the new method but I love how much time I’m saving. I’m shocked that it’s getting so much attention all of a sudden.
It all started with me being lazy and hating how conditioners take forever to wash off. I also started to get back acne from it so I just stopped using conditioners.
When I tell people what I do, they look at me like I’ve gone off the deep end.
Obviously, this method works for my type of hair. If you have fine hair, I wouldn’t recommend it. B can never get away with not using conditioners.
But if you have oily, Asian hair, you might wanna give this a shot.
Here’s a really shitty photo of our hair in comparison:
The two wax that I’m loving right now are:
1) Bumble and Bumble thickening cream contour:
2) Lucido-l “Natural” hair wax (level 2 hardness) :
My favorite is actually Lucido. It’s less heavy, gives me more volume, and looks more natural. I’m also pretty stoked that it’s cheaper and cuter looking.
