-How long have you been natural?
I have BCed at least 5 times over the past 12 years ??? (dang I’m old) due to color damage, chemical damage, or boredom. The good thing is that I always come back home!
-What is your regimen?
That’s probably why I’ve BCed so many times because honestly I don’t have one. I’m a huge fan of hats, braids, and wild free form fros. I do like to moisturize regardless of the style with [Set it Free, Right On Instant Moisturizer (I believe it’s the glycerine my hair likes, so my aim is to try a homeade glycerin concocotion) and natural hair oils and butters].
-What is the one thing you’d tell a newbie to help her on her journey?
Just because you’re natural does not mean its going to be easy. The only person I know with an easy hair care routine is one of my close friends who has a fabulous Caesar barber cut. However, any natural hair style is so worth the time and effort; it’s the only way to have the best of both worlds, and the look is gorgeous. Oh yes, and stay posted to nc.com and cn.com!
-How do you maintain length?
I never have gotten past shoulder length since becoming natural due to my experimentation and ADD, however my hair grows best with regular co-washing (once a week), no manipulation styles (for me two-strand twists, braids or twists extensions).
-What’s the best thing about being naturally glamorous?!
The vibe of a natural girl is so effortless (just the vibe), vibrant, and spirited. I feel at my best and most confident when I’m rocking a big fabulous fro.
