Airdrying Relaxed Hair

In an effort to reduce the amount of heat that I use on my hair weekly, I usually air dry my air after my weekly washing. In order to achieve smooth, frizz free hair I employ a few techniques.

Step 1: Dry soaking wet hair to about 20% dry using the T shirt method. This technique can be seen here. When my hair is this wet I do not apply any products to it. I just think it would be a waste.

Step 2: After my hair is 20% dry I apply my leave ins. Currently I use a few products at this step. These are Hawaiian Silky 14 in 1, Smooth and Shine Therapy Silk Fusion. I use a wide tooth comb to evenly distribute the products through my hair. I follow my leave ins with a few drops of Kemi Oyl which I also comb through my hair.

Step 3: I comb all my hair back and put on a headband and allow my hair to hang loose in the back. I leave my hair like this until it dries, which is usually about 3 hours.

I know many people may use a different air drying method but I have found that this works for me.

I hope this helps.

Contact Lenses

Anyone who knows me well knows that I wear glasses and that I have a phobia of things going into my eyes. However, I have been growing progressively tired of wearing glasses so despite my fear I have decided to get contacts.

Last week I was examined and fitted for my contacts and I am currently wearing them on a two week trial basis. Surprisingly, it is not as bad as I thought it would be. Taking them out is harder than putting them in.

My doctor suggested  Acuvue brand soft contact lenses for me that can be worn for 30 days. So far I have found these lenses to be quite comfortable to wear but I find that my eyes can get a little dry at the end of the day.

Lets see how this goes.

Side note: Apparently I dont close my eyes all the way when I blink. Who knew?!
