Regina-Naturally Glam Hair Idol

Meet Regina...she shows us that a simple, consistent routine yields excellent results!


CN: How long have you been natural?
R: I was relaxed from age 5 until age 24. My last relaxer was in January 2008 and my big chop was May 7, 2008. I've been natural for 17 months and counting.....

CN: What is your current regimen?
R: I shampoo weekly with Kinky-Curly Come Clean and follow with a deep treatment using Hairveda Sitrinillah Masque or Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner. I also use Cassia as a deep treatment once per month. After conditioning, I detangle with Afro Detangler and moisturize with Qhemet's Amla and Olive Heavy Cream. I braid and seal my hair with Hairveda Cocasta Shikakai Oil. I wear the braids for 4-5 days and I take them down towards the end of the week and wear a fluffed braid-out until wash day.

CN: How do you maintain length? Moisture?
R: Protective styles and no heat usage really help. Sealing my ends with Cocasta Shikakai Oil helps seal in the moisture and protect my ends from creating single-strand knots.

CN: How do you protect your curls a night?
R: I wear a satin sleep cap (non-elastic) to bed and under my crocheted tams to protect my hair. I'd like to try a satinsakk. I've heard that they work great! www.satinsakks.com

CN: What would you tell a new natural, or transitioning diva?
R: Keep your scalp clean and your hair moisturized, sealed, and protected. Deep conditioning is your friend!

CN: What's the best thing about being naturally glamorous?
R: The versatility in styling and not having to run away from rain, humidity, and swimming. Natural hair has lots of personality!

CN: Anything else you want to add?
R: Once you find the products that work well with your hair, stick with them! You'll save a lot more money purchasing staples. Thanks for featuring me on your site! It truly was an honor!

Her hair looks great! I'm still working on ironing out my staples..getting there slowly : ) I've only been natural for about 3 months and boy has it been a trial and error phase. I love trying new things though! Aubrey Organics is DEF going on the list!

Hey Regina,
I think we went to high school or middle school together. I was a year or 2 ahead of you. You can check out my profile to see its Stacy B. I am from SC and I went to CAJ and WA Perry. But I really think we went to school together.
Even if we don't know each other you look real familiar.
I'm loving your fro and you have a beautiful smile.
Peace and Blessings

Hey Soror. It's Aisak from Fotki. I went natural too finally. Hopefully I can make it onto Curly Nikki one day too. I'll let you know. As always your hair is gorgeous. It is a year later now so I wonder if its down your back. Going to check fotki now.
