These were my exact thoughts as I was reading the feedback from one of my shampoo bar testers. One of the questions was about how easily the tester was able to comb through her hair after washing it with my shampoo bar. Her response: “I do not comb my wet hair but did not experience any tangles while styling.” As I look back now, I realize that her hair is shorter than shoulder-length, so it makes more sense.
Well, this past week I decided to do a little experiment on my own hair. After I get done towel drying it, my hair is sort of wavy. Of course, after I’ve combed through it, it goes pretty straight. So I wondered…if I didn’t comb it, would it remain wavy? I haven’t had naturally wavy hair since before I had kids. With each pregnancy, it got straighter and straighter. Other shampoo bar users have reported that their hair has more waves, so maybe I could too!
Here’s a photo of my wet hair, right after using my shampoo bar:
Scrunching it up sort of brings back memories from the good old days when it was permed to perfection. Here’s one of my high school graduation photos with all my curly locks:
Ok, so back to the present. I can either diffuser dry my hair at this point, or just let it air dry. The conclusion is that most of the waves fall out, but at least the body remains:
At this point, I can easily run my fingers through it. It’s not tangled. So now, I just use my curling iron to enhance the body that’s already there. I don’t have to use any mousse or gel, just a little bit of aerosol hairspray, and I end up with this:
Or, I can put half of it into a clip, and have this:
Quite honestly, I was beginning to tire of my long, straight hair and wondering if I should just get a new cut. Now, I’m pretty happy to have a couple more options! Today, I’m making a full-sized batch of the shampoo bars that my testers used. I’m getting a little bit giddy about being able to offer it for sale – finally! Of course, it will be a few weeks before it’s done curing…
So now, I’m curious. Anyone else NOT comb their wet hair? Is it short or long?
