CN: How long have you been natural?
I’ve been natural for 17 months, so I’m still fairly new to this.
CN: What is your current regimen?
I try to keep my regimen simple. I wash my hair either once a week or once every two weeks. I shampoo with Dr. Bronner’s 18 in 1 Castile Soap, and condition with Aussie Moist or Hello Hydration. I use Kinky Curly Knot Today leave in, and then apply my unrefined shea butter and twist my hair while wet.
CN: How do you maintain length? Moisture?
I maintain length by manipulating my hair as little as possible. I try to keep my hands out of my hair during the week. This has proven to work for me to retain length. I keep my hair moisturized with shea butter year round, and in the warmer months I use my glycerin spritz mix.
CN: How do you protect your curls a night?
I protect my hair at night by sleeping in a bonnet or a satin scarf. If I’m wearing a twist out, I will put my hair in big random twists at night to make it last longer.
CN: What would you tell a new natural, or transitioning diva?
I would tell a diva who is transitioning or newly natural to embrace and LOVE her hair as God made it for her. Don’t get caught up into comparing your hair’s texture, density, shape, etc. to what the next natural diva has.
CN: What’s the best thing about being naturally glamorous?
I love walking into a room and NOT looking like every other woman with their Doobie wraps. I also love it that they’re in AWE of my hair.
CN: Anything else you want to add?
I’m sooooo glad I made the decision to embrace my hair naturally. It has brought about an inner confidence I didn’t know I had. I know that I’m beautiful, fearfully and wonderfully made. I’m glad I decided to stop being UN-natural!!!
Your hair is beautiful. Thanks for sharing your story. I just did the Big Chop today. I am fully embracing my natural hair.
I LOVE this comment:

Everyone has the answer but unfortunately, unless they live in your shoes with your hair, they can not begin to duplicate. If you want complete control in a variety of ways for your thick , curly hair, go to www.gotfrizz.com and watch the light bulb go off.
Your hair is the business! Your curl definition is poppin and I love the versatility. Beautiful!
