Rogelio documents how his long natural curly hair dries in a video as well as posting a picture of how his curls look when not tied!
I’ve had some readers sending me emails asking about how my hair looks when it is not tied. While I have posted pictures on some other articles, most notably the one about growing curly hair long, I thought it’d be best to just put this one on a specific post so you can see my beast in all its glory.
Without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, I bring you, The Beast:
Yeah, that’s me, Tarzan style
What’s more is that the picture above is part of a mini-experiment I decided to carry out that day. Just like the mini-experiment I carried out recently of running my fingers through my mane to see how many shed hairs I could remove in the span of 8 hours, this time I decided to document how my hair dried on its own after my morning shower by taking pictures every hour as I was chilling out that day and doing some blogging.
As you will be able to see in the video below, my curls look very different when wet as opposed to when they dry completely, a common issue for us curly haired dudes regardless of our curly type. I call this the wet vs. dry effect, and it is one of the reasons why many of us style our waves, coils and kinks in the morning in our chosen hairstyle yet end up hours later with something completely different to what we had intended. I will talk more about the wet vs. dry effect in coming articles and how to control it but, for now, I will leave you with how my beast transforms in the span of 3 hours. Curly dudes, you are not alone in your beastly hair issues!
For the record, I used no hair products whatsoever and I didn’t shampoo my hair either when I showered.
Au naturale curls, baby!
All the best.
