-How long have you been natural?
I’ve been fully natural for 10 months (I transitioned for a year).
-What is your regimen?
It depends on how I’m wearing my hair at the time. When I wash n’ go, I conditioner wash every morning. When I do twists, I do them on damp hair with Cantu Shea butter leave in. While in twists, I generally just leave my hair alone for that week or two. Same thing for braidouts/twistouts. I deep condition maybe once a month, and I rarely use shampoo. I use the Kiya Fizzle method (mixing salt with conditioner and applying to the hair) when I want some extra moisture.
-What is the one thing you’d tell a newbie to help her on her journey?
Don’t be discouraged about your hair’s “limitations”. What seems like a limitation at first is really just your natural hair telling you what it wants to do. Listen to it and your life will be so much easier!
-How do you maintain length?
I don’t trim. I dust ever so often when I flat iron, but I believe in just letting my hair be. I’m very laid back when it comes to hair.
-What’s the best thing about being naturally glamorous?!
*blushes* Aw thank you! I’d love to say it comes naturally, but…LOL. I am very focused when it comes to what look I’m going for. I wear makeup and different earrings, but most importantly, I tell myself that I’m beautiful and that my hair is beautiful. If you aren’t confident, it shows all over you. When you walk out of the house feeling good and knowing that you look good, it doesn’t matter whether you have long straght hair or a shrunken fro because you will project the image that you are confident and fly.
