Hair Care Tips You (Maybe) Never Knew: 1

This hair tip opened my eyes COMPLETELY a few years ago. I don't have tangles or hopelessly dry hair anymore!
I will note, though, that blotting (or plonking) with a T-shirt, cotton pillowcase or a cheap pashmina is even BETTER for those of us prone to dry hair (especially those of us with curls!). If I wrap my hair up in a towel, it goes straight and frizzy. If I plonk it in something soft and cottony, it maintains its curl.
(I use the same idea on my skin in the winter... it's -40oC and DRY here these days, and while most of the city is suffering from dry patches on their skin, my skin has never felt better!)

This is so interesting about the t-shirt! I stopped rubbing my hair years ago. I just wrap it as I leave the shower, then remove the towel after about 5 min when I feel the excess water is gone. My hair is shoulder length, corkscrew curly, mixed-ethnicity and holds a lot of water! I am not sure that a t-shirt is absorbent enough, but I'd be willing to try something different if it would benefit my hair, which breaks easily. I'm so glad I came across this post and this website!!

Hey there April - I am so pleased if this has been of some help. Thanks so much for your kind words! Are you using anything to lock in moisture? This would help prevent breakage...
