I have now been in Korea for four months. The first couple of months on my hair were…rough.
When I arrived my hair was the best it had been in a while. But after a couple of months of a lack of hair products (ended up being unable to pack as much as I wanted), no time to take care of it, and getting used to the water, I felt like my hair was falling out (it definitely was). Finally, I purchased some things from the wonderful people at this natural hair product website for natural girls in Korea. I will now show my hair stages since being in Korea.
Before the fall:
I’d always had thinner edges…but this was something else entirely. It looked so horrible! :””(
I love my texture. But what I don’t love is how it’s prone to such disastrous tangling and knotting. I was at the point where I was nearly in tears trying to detangle. I had one hand on a clump of hair and the other hand on a pair of scissors. I wanted to cut it all off and start over. But I decided to wait a few days until my products arrived.
Obviously, I was a happy camper again.
Below are some results of a full blow out and twist-outs.
I find that it’s much easier to manage when I blow it out a bit…or a lot. But I really have never used this much heat on my hair before. This was only my second time doing a blow out. (The first one was right before coming to Korea). So I don’t want it to become a habit, but it made things so much less tangled.
