Curly hair journey in 2022. I decluttered a lot of the products I owned. Sold a few one and gave some to the local food bank. I just wanted to use up my stash and only buy repair products. My hair is getting damaged due to my rheumatoid arthritis and old age.

I started to use up the smaller travel size products to get rid of them. These were the ones I had to finish up. The only one I would potentially purchase is the Aveda Botanical Repair. This works well on my hair, the only downside is the price. So will buy a full size at the right price.

Annual Hair Cut

Booked my only hair cut in the year at Nuala Morley in Bristol to see what her team suggest for my curls. Its expensive and will only go to this salon once. I have wanted to visit Bristol for years to see the balloons. But this has not happened. On the way back from my holiday, this was our last stop. This was in June, and I loved it.

Then I went back to Aveda, not just the Be Curly range. I introduced the Sap Moss Conditioner, Confixor Liquid Gel and Smooth Infusion Styling Cream. I experimented with the Aveda Botanical Repair Strengthening Trio, which includes the Strengthening Shampoo, Strengthening Conditioner and Strengthening Leave-in Treatment. And tested the Intensive Strengthening Masque Light. I experimented with various products and mixed them up to see what they did to my hair. I had previously tried the Botanical Repair at a local salon. The effect on my hair was good, just not the hairdressing salon.

But I had problems with various brands I used at home. I just thought enough was enough. I gave them away on a facebook group as I just wanted them gone. No one in my family or friends group has hair like mine.

By the end of the year these were my empties. Shampoos, Conditioners and Styling products.

My curly hair journey in 2022 was challenging. I tried many different ranges that just irritate my scalp or upset my curls. I am slowly getting sorted on what works. And I loved visiting Nuala’s salon in Bristol.

    Thanks Natasha, that’s how I found this salon too. I went or twice but found it too pricy! Do you ever cut your own hair? 🙂 that’s what I’ve started doing (and went to a different salon recently in Bristol for highlights which was the first time in my life -in my 50s- I have got them) All the best, Kate

      I have found a salon in the city close to me. They do both dry curl cuts and you can have the longer more expensive one. I have been there three times and always alternate with the shorter cheaper cut than the longer one. They use only curls products. I am unable to cut my hair, so only have it trimmed once or twice a year. All the best
