Since I have cut my hair, I have really learned a lot about managing curls, such as how to use a diffuser and the fact that sulfates are horrible for curly hair. Right now I am trying an all-natural approach with my hair - washing with a baking soda mixture and conditioning with a apple cider vinegar mixture. I am really liking it so far. Since my hair is so fine, before when I would wash my hair, my hair would be super limp. I am pretty sure it has to do with the fact that sulfates strip hair of oils and the such - something my fine hair needs in order to have volume, But now that I am using baking soda, I don't have to worry about that. I can even go PRODUCT FREE! Yup, thats right. Today, all I put was one tinnnnnnnnny drop of leave in conditioner on my bangs, and that was all. Pretty exciting stuff!
