30-days natural hair challenge – Day 22

Time passes by quickly, My hair has taken a an interesting turn which I am trying to manage as best as I can. Hair is starting to feel very dry and it feels like straw already.

I am starting to get some issue with visible residue on my hair from the accumulated scalp oil which I am trying best to manage by my own means (I will talk about this in further articles). It is not visible per se unless you really look and part the curls aside, a duty that I have asked curly dudette to carry out profusely. For the record, I will be posting a pic of her curls very soon so keep an eye out for her stunning natural curls and how the hair advice you get here at Manly Curls is also useful for da ladyz!

So, back to moi. Hair is looking still decent overall but I am already feeling, full on, like emptying a whole shampoo bottle on my curls. Incidentally, there are no odours emanating from my manly mane still despite I have ramped up my gym visiting for the last few days which means I am sweating (like a pig) almost every day. I am surely finding out some interesting stuff as I am going along.

This, below, is how I am looking as of today (Day 22):
