What is your current hair care regimen?
My regimen includes washing my hair once a week; Sunday’s are usually wash days for me. I mostly single twist my hair and wear a twist out during the week, as it gets bigger and stretched I may style differently (I.E puff, front puff).
I transitioned for a year and a half then in March of 2009 I did my version of a “BIG CHOP.” I was traveling to Miami for spring break and had no idea what I was going to do to my hair because of the two different textures. I went into the salon in my local mall and told the stylist to cut it!!!! I went to Miami with a new look and feeling so free…best hair decision I ever made!
What makes me love my kinks and curls is that it’s sooooo ME!!! I feel my hair matches my style, FUNKY! I can style it anyway I want, add color (something I couldn’t do with relaxed hair because of all the chemicals) , it’s so versatile…BIG ASS FRO one day and a puff the next. I just love the looks I get, the questions that I’m asked, it just makes me feel like I’m being ME. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!
