{Curly} Friday

Pin It
Frieda from the Peanuts

I never expected all the comments and emails about curly hair after this post!  I promise not to turn this blog into a hair blog... that would just be weird... but I do want to answer the questions I got.

The brand of gel in the first post is Jason.  The ingredients are all natural.  Here is the company's site.

It looks like you can purchase products here and Drugstore.com carries a lot of the line too.  I found my gel and shampoo/conditioner at my local health food market.  If you are international, I'm sure there are stores and sites closer to you that sell this line too.

I follow the Curly Girl method which sounds very similar to some of the other comments on the previous post.  I put the gel in when my hair is wet.  I let it air dry while I'm fighting the lasers, wrangling the dogs and getting Chaney off to school each morning and then I use a blow dryer with a diffuser before I leave so that my hair is mostly dry when I get to work.  That's it!

I also got emails and comments from some that part of their hair was curly while the other part was straight.  Several years back when I wore my hair curly, I thought the same thing.  Then I found the Curly Girl method and once my hair was not so dry and I stopped being mean to it with the flat iron, everything got curlier.  The same thing is happening this time too.

And it's worth mentioning... Jason is not a sponsor here and the sites that I have mentioned today are not either.  No one gave me free stuff; I just like the products and wanted to share. :)

So those of you who offered some mojo in exchange for curly tips... it's time to pay up!  I will gladly accept all the mojo you can send my way.  There will be sewing this weekend!  Monday I'll be back to talking about quilting. 

Oh, and there will a Leap Day giveaway this coming week too!  It has something to do with thread... ;)

I've recently stopped straightening my hair too. I don't think I even remembered just how curly my hair actually is! I do mine the same way you do. Life is so much easier now that I'm not fighting with my hair!

Amen! I love the curly girl book and all the lovely curls that come from it! I must say that my curly hair is a lot... weirder.... now that it's short. I'm going to have to go looking for that gel, I wonder if it's all natural, does it have glycol in it? lol. I tend to be allergic to hair products. Keep up the curliness, and please do show us some pictures!

I wash my hair on an evening and put a bit of mousse in it when it's 50% dry. Then the next morning I spritz it with tap water, let it air dry for about 10 minutes and then finish it off with a diffuser for a few minutes. The thing that takes a lot of getting used to is that curly hair (or maybe just my curly hair!) is different every day - I never know how curly it's going to be but I love that about it! I've not heard of curly girl before, thanks for the link!

I'll send you mojo if that product doesn't make you look just like Frieda, that style is just a little out there ;o)

Hooray for a sewing weekend!! I'm hoping to squeeze in some machine time, too. Have fun!!!!

i used to avoid my natural hair like mad, flat ironing and blow drying and all kinds of craziness. one day my hair stylist said "girl, why are you fighting all this curl?" that was about 8 years ago. i haven't flat ironed since then.

my hair is absolutely, definitely, without a doubt curly in some areas and straight in others. i just let it go as is. and everyone says i have great hair.

for product i like the garnier strong hold cream stuff in the neon green pot.

I should try to embrace the curl, but my hair is just frizzy. It's what comes from having five babies I suppose. The hormones did strange things to my hair. Sigh.

A leap day giveaway - what a fun idea! Can't wait! I'm thinking of doing one on my birthday.

I embraced my curly hair after listening to my husband complain for 30 years about why was I drying my hair and straightening my hair. Last summer, I said okay. Now I have "fun head" and do the curly girl thing totally! Life is just so much easier!!!!

Need a photo to see that lovely curly hair!

Alright, I'm going to scout around here and see if I can find it. I can always order from the US if I can't find it here. Anything that is going to save me time getting ready in the morning is worth experimenting as far as I'm concerned. Hope you had a great sewing weekend, did you feel my mojo hit, I sent it by laser.
Hope Chaney is feeling better x
