For the past two weeks my hair has literally survived on water. I have been so busy that the last thing on my mind was washing my hair. I have come up with an emergency routine for such days when I really don't have the time and patience to deal with my hair.
my hair loves water and it does a great job defining my curls so moisturising my hair by spraying water or a leave in on it is my number one rule.
Rule number two is applying oil or butter to the hair without parting the hair into sections. I mainly focus on the ends. Since it is very cold where I live thick butters such as Shea butter do a great job keeping my hair moisturised.
Rule number three is keeping in one hairstyle for at least a week to avoid to much manipulation.
And now for my biggest life saver! Alcohol free hair gel. I use gel to keep my edges down and further define my curls without having to comb my hair. This keeps manipulation at a minimum.
I have been wearing my hair in a side puff most of the time.
