|One||Really you are just being lazy, how do you know that your result is not just a fluke?|
|Two||Now you are showing some effort but what if your results were not the same as trial 1?|
|Three||This is the magic number, you have tested the product sufficiently enough to get somewhat consistent results (or not, which is also a result!) and an indication of whether or not it works.|
What does the number 3 have to do with dry hair?
I get a lot of questions sent to me asking what to do about dry hair often after the reader has tried a lot of remedies. India sent me a question which I am often asked, 'How do you know if you hair likes a product?'
The answer is try it three times. However this rule of 3 only works if you do the exact same things each time. For example if you are trying a leave in and you use it immediately after washing your hair, this is totally different to if you choose to apply it 4 days later to 'dirty hair'.
'I have tried every product under the sun and my hair still feels dry?'
Can you relate to that statement? If so, then welcome to the club. It is normal for hair of African origin to feel dry...........take a moment to digest that. Many of us relate moisturised hair to the feeling of hair when it is soaked in conditioner but assume that when it dries and gets a little crunchy then it is misbehaving.
Let me remind you of the rule of 3. If you have washed your hair atleast 3 times with a conditioner that you like and still ended up with some crunchy hair...........the dry hair is normal for you (it is for me).
An explanation and some science coming up in part 2! Is dry hair normal for you or do you think that all hair should feel soft and moisturised with the right product or technique.
Special thanks to Michele, India and Erica for your recent questions on dry hair. Hopefully you will get your answers in this series
