So, I was inspired by a recent post and thought it might be nice to get an Indian hair thread going, if no one minds. (If there is an existing thread, please let me know!)
There are so few Indians where I live, I rarely, if ever, get the opportunity to compare and discuss hair care with a fellow Indian.
Enter this lovely community!
So, any Indian members! (And anyone else who wants to respond!) Please, let's hear about your hair and your care routines.
Personally, I have pretty thick, slightly wavy, BSL hair. It's got some red streaks in it's length that I'm not sure came from a faded final dye job, or from the henna in my hair oil. (I had red highlights twice, with a third dye back to natural color.)
I use coconut oil daily, with heavy oilings once or twice a week. I tend to CO, with CWC on heavy oiling days. I teeter-totter between using cones and not.
My daily styling is either a braid or bun. I used to flat-iron my hair every so often, but have sworn off of heat. Instead, I'm learning to accept my natural waves. Even though I tend to be a bit of a frizz-head!
