When I'm super-busy, I pretty much abandon my poor little camera. Now that things have started to settle down, I eased back into this photography thing with a few self-portraits. These are the easiest for me when life is chaotic because I don't have to worry about what the rest of my apartment looks like (it ain't pretty right now). All I have to do is stick my big ol' head in front of the camera and click away : ).
About my hair in these shots: My hair routine doesn't change much, but I like to try new things from time to time, with mixed results. Last week I had a bad experience with a product that left my hair looking like a giant tumbleweed by the end of the week. To compensate for the crazy dryness, I made an extra effort to retain moisture when I washed this week, and I'm really happy with how it turned out. What I did:
1. After washing with DevaCurl No-Poo, I slapped on A LOT of DevaCurl One Condition. After letting it sit for a few minutes, my hair still seemed thirsty, so I left in a lot more conditioner than I normally would.
2. Worked a generous amount of Curls Gel-es'c throughout my whole head.
3. Put a dab of Karen's Body Beautiful Hair Butter through each section before twisting, adding more hair butter to fuzzy bits. (The instructions say this works best on dry hair, but I find it works better on wet hair.)
