Thanks, BotticelliBrit!

Refreshing 2nd or 3rd day hair has always been a huge struggle for me. When I would dampen my hair and add some leave-in, it would end up frizzy AND weighed down- worse than it had looked beforehand.

This morning, my hair looked good for 2nd day- shiny, defined, with a few frizzy parts. That was when I thought, "What if I try what BotticelliBrit always talks about- adding conditioner to dry hair?"

I took my Suave Naturals conditioner, added a tiny amount (dime size) to my hands and rubbed them together, then smoothed over a frizzy part and scrunched. I repeated this process several times.

And....my hair looks great! It feels nice and soft. Not ALL of my frizz is gone, but that's ok- I'd much rather have a bit of frizz than limp, weighed-down curls!

So thank you, BoticelliBrit! Without you, I never would've even THOUGHT of putting conditioner on dry hair. I decided to make this post to hopefully inspire other curlies to try this method too :)
