Autumn of CurlyChronicles!!!!

CN: How long have you been natural?

A: I’ve been natural most of my life but I got a perm around the end of junior high and that was it – my hair broke off and I didn’t really care for the perming process so I never continued with it. But over the years, I damaged my hair with both heat and coloring ’til 2003 when I cut most of it off myself. So I say since 2003 because that’s when I realized I should be wearing my natural texture in order for my hair to flourish. It’s been 6 years this March! :)

CN: What is your regimen?
A: I don’t use regular shampoos often. I do apple cider vinegar rinses twice a week and usually put in a leave in conditioner and coconut oil or shea butter. At the moment, I use Giovanni Direct Leave In. If it’s the weekend and I have lots of time, I’ll do a deep condition or a hot oil treatment with a hooded dryer. I’m not a product junkie and I tend to use simple things like shea butter, aloe vera gel, vegetable glycerin, rose water, lavender essential oil, and water. I use Kinky Curly Curling Custard and Knot Today from time to time as well. I love Abba’s products as well :) Whatever products I use, they’re vegan and cruelty free. I normally wear a curly fro or a twist out. Those are my lazy styles. If I’m feeling extravagant, I’ll do a cornrow out or a flat twist out.

CN: What is the one thing you’d tell a newbie to help her on her journey?
A: Stop obsessing over someone else’s length or texture because you might be setting yourself up for disappointment and that’s not what this natural hair love thing is about. It’s about acceptance and it’s hard to do that when you’re expecting your hair to look like someone else’s. When you find something you love, stick with it, try not to break your piggy bank over every new product that comes out. Also, experiment as much as possible…just not with drugs :P

CN: How do you maintain length?
A: By not paying attention to it lol…when I don’t constantly seems to do just fine but checking every morning – no thanks! I just sleep with a satin scarf (every night you lazies! :P), keep it moisturized and trim once a year now to keep it in good shape. When I need a break, I’ll get kinky twist extensions. Lately I’ve moving towards wearing two strand twists (my own hair) as a protective style for the summertime.

CN: How do you protect your style at night?

A: I normally do two strand twists every night..I’m dedicated lol. I hate not knowing what my hair will look like..but lately I’ve been just putting it in a high pony (pineapple?) and putting on my satin scarf. I guess I’m not a wild sleeper ’cause it never comes off my head lol.

CN: What’s the best thing about being naturally glamorous?!
A: With my big, glam, curly fro, I’m easier to spot in a crowd. ;) kiddin’ but not really lol.. It’s me..most people agree that I’m just not me without my big, curly hair. I don’t fuss with it as much and it adds so much more character to my style. Plus! It doubles as a pillow :D

    I love Autumn's hair and her personality. She is one of the first naturals on YouTube that I began watching over a year ago and is my favorite! Her upbeat personality and direct, clearly voiced, informative tutorials are one of the very best on YouTube! If you haven't watch any of her videos, then you are DEFINITELY missing out! :D

    Your hair is beautiful! My hair is really really kinky and right now it’s locked up because I just couldn’t seem to do what you all are doing with your hair. I never heard of the cowash. What is the meaning of rinsing with apple cider vinegar? Is it because of dandruff? Should I buy the vinegar at health food store or from regular grocery store?

    Can anyone tell me what my hair texture is? I have my pic in my profile when you click on my name. I’ve been natural for 2.5 years but I have no regimen really-just wash with tresseme conditioner and ic fantasia leave in conditioner and I twist with lustrasilk shea butter-but when my twists are out it looks kinny, frizzy and dry-any help?

    Your pictures are great. I am just going natural now and I am in the gawky stage between the twa and a length that I can twist and do something with. I am rockin headbands right now and tryin to make that work in the corporate world. I love you head band. Do you have suggestions on finding headbands online or a store. Sonya

    someone else asked about the styles worn, here’s a breakdown

    1st photo – wash n go
    2nd photo – it’s just a high puff with a scarf :)
    3rd photo – curly fro technique
    5th photo – another curly fro, just done toward the back of my head rather than front
    6th photo – my hair was blowdried and then flat twisted (in 6 large flat twists)

    hope that helps!

    I like her advice for the newie. I’m still a bit nervous about going natural (completely). So, when I do finally let go, I’ll take her advice not to expect my hair to look like those models. LOL
