|Red Rocks Ampitheatre in
Here in Colorado it is pretty much common knowledge that Red Rocks Ampitheatre is one of the best places to take in a live show. This week the hubby and I made another trek up the winding ramp that leads to the open air venue surrounded by massive red rocks to see the musician, Gotye. The weather was not the best but fun was had by all once the show started.
There were two opening acts before the much awaited headliner. After warming the crowd up with a couple of tunes, Gotye (a.k.a Wally) remarked, as most singers do, at how the altitude made singing a challenge. Still, he managed to hit all the notes in perfect pitch. The show was full of beat driven tracks such as, “Easy Way Out,” and, “Thanks for Your Time.”
Prior to the show this week of course I kept thinking, “what am I gonna do with my hair?” With the venue in mind it was a no brainer. A Wash n’ Go was pretty much my only option because there was the chance it might rain. I decided this before realizing that I was completely out of my staple styler, Eco Gel. That’s when I remembered that I still had some Kinky Curly Curling Custard (KCCC) I bought a long time ago. I couldn’t remember all of the do’s and dont’s for using this product so I went online to check which leave-ins it paired well with. I found a video on YouTube explaining how the Tresemme Naturals conditioner I love so much works as a leave-in under the KCCC.

Before applying the products, I co-washed my hair with Suave Naturals in Coconut flavor. Then, with my hair still dripping wet, I applied the Tresemme conditioner in sections. After that, I used very little of the gel on each of the sections and wet the hair before raking it through. I noticed some crazy curl definition right away which usually means tons of shrinkage. This was what I was going for though and was happy with the final result. The next day (the morning of the concert) I re-wet my hair to reactive the curls. I ended up with a coily afro that was a lot of fun to wear.
At the concert there was plenty of wind and rain throughout but I didn’t have a care in the world because my curly fro held up just fine. Which left me with plenty of headspace for remembering all the words to, “Heart’s a Mess” and “Save Me,” my two favorite Gotye songs.
