In general, I try to avoid materials that shed and sleeping on cotton pillow cases or using white towels. Why is it that face cloths/washcloths only come in multiples (a value pack) of white and never brown or black?
Oh, so back to the topic at hand, most of the time I don't care because 1. I know I wash my hair several times weekly 2. To me, locks are about letting go of daily maintenance and control 3. I am a free spirit and what's the point it will just get in the hair again?
This weekend I did something out of the ordinary for me. I cared or at least pretended to care about the lint and build up which was very minimal stemming from mostly follicles that have shed and lint since I don't use products (they can cause build-up). Here's the before pic:
Did I use tweezers? No, I could have but because my locks are so delicate and tiny I did not want to rip the interlocking out with the lint and weaken the lock. Did I use dye to cover the lint and build-up? I would have but I am feeling lazy and liking the natural red streaks.
What did I do? I poured undiluted apple cider vinegar in a spray bottle. I sprayed it gently over all my hair until it was damp not dripping. I let it dry and washed it out that evening.
I am happy with the result. It looks more shiny and I can't see any follicles or build up from make-up around my hairline. U likey?
What do you use to keep extra stuff from showing in your locks? Does anyone use lemon? I heard that the natural acid in lemon lifts build up and lightens the hair shaft slightly. Because of this, the next shampoo I want to try is Avalon Lemon Clarifying shampoo. Has anyone used it?
