-How long have you been natural? I’ve been 100% natural for about 5 months now. I BC’d in May 2008 after a year long transition.

-What is your regimen?
It varies. There are two ways that I wear my hair the majority of the time. First, is twists/twistouts. When I’m wearing my hair like this, I wash with Suave Tropical Coconut and condition with Elucence MB conditioner, I detangle in the shower with a wide tooth comb while the conditioner is in. Once out of the shower, section my hair into three sections. Each section, I apply a little coconut oil on the ends, a little shea butter, and then last apply a dollop of BBD Glass to that section. I comb through and proceed to two strand twist that section. Once my hair is all twisted, I wear the twists for about 3-4 days. After that, I unravel the twists and wear the twistout for another 4-5 days. That gives me over a week of wear with no manipulation! Second, is my hair pulled back into a ponytail (usually with my phony puff). With that style, I CW and detangle in the shower, once out of the shower, I apply coconut oil to my hair and detangle more with my Denman brush. I then apply a lot of Fantasia IC gel to the front of my hair and then pull back into a ponytail. I either leave it like that, or let my hair dry a bit and then baggy before putting on my drawstring phony puff.

-What is the one thing you’d tell a newbie to help her on her journey? Patience, patience, patience! You’ll need it for the transition, and you’ll need it after the BC, you’re just gonna need it, period. I’ve had to have quite a bit of patience, just getting use to the shorter length after I BC’d, and I transitioned for a year! It’s a learning process and it’s one of those things where you have to go through some awkward stages/moments before you finally reach the end of the rainbow!

-How do you maintain length? Well, I’ve just begun to get focused on length and growing my hair out. Initially after I BC’d, my focus was getting the right shape and cut to grow my hair out it. So I spent a few months regularly trimming from the bottom half of my hair to get rid of some of the layers. Now that I’m happy with the shape/cut, what I do to maintain length is make sure my hair is always moisturized and try to utilize “no-heat” styles like the twists/twistouts, buns and my phony puff.

-What’s the best thing about being naturally glamorous? Variety. Natural hair can look so many different ways and you can wear so many styles, i.e. straight, curly, bushy, wild, etc. Also, every persons natural hair is unique to that person–so when a person is wearing their natural hair it makes them unique! I love that about it. That it makes a person look like a non-conformist. 😉

    lida is a new diet that creates an 11 day meal plan according to your tastes. Each day will have some kind of a theme. You will not have to count the amount of calories you consume or portion your meals. Rather, you will be encouraged to eat until you are satisfied with lida daidaihua but not the point of being stuffed. To illustrate clearly how daidaihua works, you might eat fish, chicken, fruit salad and cottage cheese for one day. You can eat as much as you want provided that you stop the very moment you feel full. Don't be worried about slimming capsule though. The entire day's meals consist primarily of proteins while it doesn't include that much carbohydrate. This kind of formula of lida slimming is important for one to lose excess fat without having to lose muscle as well. When you take in too little calories, your body will burn muscle and not fat.
