|Smirking at the thought of trying to straighten my hair in a humid climate ... NOPE not happening!|
Today's post is going to be a quick one. The summer sun is at its full peak and the sweltering humidity here in the Midwest will wreak havoc on your hair. My natural hair is a hybrid between curly and wavy, not quite one or the other. So it makes it easy for me to rock it straight or to play up my natural texture with twist outs or with curl rods, and when the humidity is unbearable it is easier to forgo damaging heat. Plus I'm a firm believer that my hair looks best in it's natural state and I love how my natural hair absorbs the moisture from the air and because of that my hair gets bigger and fuller throughout the day otherwise known as natural volume. I am one of those women who loves big hair so the humidity works in my favor when I'm rocking my natural hair and I don't mind the shrinkage either.

|Lol. You see what I mean. Loving it!!!|
I washed my hair with organic all natural apple cider vinegar and deep conditioned with SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Hair Masque. After rinsing out the conditioner I applied SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Leave-In Conditioner while my hair was still damp. I applied a combination of grapeseed oil, coconut oil, and olive oil all over my hair ( the amount you use will depend on you hair texture and length). To boost my curls I did set some sections on rods while damp and let my hair air dry ( I applied OGX Renewing Argan Oil Of Morocco Voluminous Mousse Medium Hold to the sections I set in rods).
|My favorite side because I love showing off my birth mark. I never cover it with makeup because it is even better than having a dimple.|
|Lol, my boring side without the birthmark.|
|I'm very happy with the end result. Curls Rule!!!|
