Because I'm a fan of color and I love blonde and copper tones, I have had my hair dyed and re-dyed like no other! But now with winter setting in I can feel the dryness coming also. So its back to using castor oil!
Normally I don't use a shower cap or anything that will keep my hair from getting wet in the shower. In fact, usually I like the steam and mist from the shower to soften my locs and "reset" them just in case I slept funny on them. Well right after I step out of the shower I just rub a little castor oil on my hair root to tip. You don't need much, because that stuff is a little potent! The smell isn't that great either, but you can always add a scented oil to the mix. I use a vanilla essential oil added in. Yum.
This picture is me cheesin at a beach party... Sand, sea water, and freshly colored locs don't mix either! I was conditioning for days after that trip.
