Eeeek, somebody please explain this mystical transformation. No kidding here mama! So I bought this Organix Hydrating Macadamia Dry Styling Oil ($7.99, Walmart) in hopes that it will revitalize my dry and ridic-tangled wavy hair but holly molly it did more than that! Ever since I incorporated this gem into my
lazy low-key haircare routine (read~ shampoo, condition, air dry or messy bun), my hair became straight. And soft. And light. It's like that hair commercial I have fantasized for eons!
My Hairy Tale. I have always sported cropped-pixie cut hair up until 2005 when I decided to look more womanly. Since then, save for some occasional trimming in between, my hair became wavy. A lot of times I have been asked where I had my hair permed. A compliment, I guess so. Truth is, while I like my long wavy hair, I hate the tangles associated with it. Many times I contemplated on cutting my locks super short again but nah! I think I'd have separation anxiety. One time I had my highlights professionally done and the poor hairstylist detangled my crazy hair for an hour. Embarrassed is an understatement. So far, the only product that worked with my mane is Carol's Daughter Hair Milk (Lite) Curl Booster. It defines and detangles my waves like no other.
Enuff of the blurb, let this picture give you an idea of my wavy hair....

Hair-raisin' Result. Without altering my shampoo-conditioner-air dry routine (which is washing my hair every other day), I apply a squeeze of Organix Hydrating Macadamia Dry Styling Oil on my damp hair, brush, air-dry, and sleep (Ha! I'm guilty of sleeping with wet hair because blow drying is such a nuisance). Then in the morning or before heading to work, I apply about the same amount on my hair and brush. Ohemgee! My hair feels soft, light and for the first time ever, I didn't feel that monster-of-a-hair! Here's another pic for reference:
Moi today documenting this hair-y phenomenon. Whatever is in the ingredients that made my hair straight, I will hug you, Ms. Inventor. You just saved me time in days I want my hair straight minus the frills of that flat iron.
What's more to love? Cruelty-free, non-greasy and it smells awesome!
Now I'm curious if you happen to have the same experience. Have you tried this yet?
