Your hair is? I am natural
When and why did you start your healthy hair journey?
I transitioned to natural shortly after the birth of my daughter. My last relaxer was in July of 2009, and I did my big chop on August 4th of 2010. I had always been curious about my natural texture and what I would look like without a perm. Having my own little girl gave me that push to go natural. I did it for her, and I did it for me.
What is your current length? What is your goal length?
I’m currently at mid back length. My ultimate goal is waist length and beyond! I really want to see how long my hair can get.
What is your regimen – wash day, daily, nightly?
Cowash & deep condition weekly, moisturize when needed, and protect my hair every night with my satin bonnet/pillowcase.
Trimming is so up in the air for me. I do find that I’ll do a thorough trim AFTER I’ve straightened my hair, which is only twice per year. I prefer to trim my hair while it is in it’s natural state, because that is how I primarily wear my hair.
What’s your fave go-to style?
My braid out. This is my staple style all day, every day!
What do you love most and least about your hair?
What I love most about my hair is how I’m always learning new ways to care for it. I love experimenting with new techniques, products, and styles. My hair is FUN! But Jesus take the wheel when it comes time to detangle all this hair, sheesh!
Do you take any supplements or use growth-aides? How have they helped?
WORK. Hard work. Babying my ends, GENTLE handling, and low maintenance.
Name a hair product, accessory or tool you cannot be without? And why?
My hair would be LOST without my beloved Kinky Curly Knot Today + Custard duo!! Something magical happens when I use those two products to style my hair. Moisture, shine, and the right amount of hold. I seriously don’t use anything else.
Where can we check you out on the web?
