1 How long have you been natural? Did you transition? And if so, how?
2 Describe your hair in three words.
Voluminous, edgy, elegant.
3 How are you currently wearing your hair? What is your hair routine? What products do you use?
I usually wear my hair up in a bun or a ponypuff and part off the front to do a cornrowing or flat-twisting design. Once in a while I also do wear twists in my hair. This all serves to protective style and I have gained lots of length from it.
I wash and condition my hair once a week using Avalon Organics Lavender Nourishing Shampoo and Komaza Care Moja Conditioner. During the week I moisturize and seal my hair. My favorite product right now is Shea Moisture Organic Curl Enhancing Smoothie. I use a moisturizing spritz of water and conditioner before I use a product. My hair absorbs products best when it is damp, and the conditioner adds some extra moisture.
4 Name one thing that you learned about your hair after becoming a natural.
I’ve learned that soft hair is moisturized hair. Many people assume that kinky hair is supposed to be rough and coarse feeling, but no one’s hair should feel that way if it is properly moisturized. Rough, coarse hair is a telltale sign of lack of moisture.
5 Where else can we find you online?
6 A final word of advice for new naturals?
Finding out what works and doesn’t work for your hair is trial and error. I read a quote earlier that said, “Rome wasn’t built in a day; neither was a hair care regimen.” This is all too true! You can’t expect to find something great for your hair on day 1. Keep trying new things and figuring out what your hair likes and doesn’t like. It also isn’t necessary to use expensive products. Drug store hair products can work wonders, too.
