CN: How long have you been natural?
Last Relaxer: 3.7.2009
CN: What is your current regimen?
I don’t really have a set regimen yet. I co-wash at least once a week using Giovanni. I detangle with my fingers while in the shower before rinsing the conditioner out. I shampoo when I feel my hair needs the extra attention. I use coconut oil, aloe vera gel, and shea butter when needed.
CN: How do you maintain length? Moisture?
I’ve only trimmed my ends once since I BC’d; I’m not sure if I should do it more often or not. However, I don’t use heat often, I only use combs for parting, and I use my little brother’s wave brush for smoothing lol. I use my spray bottle when my hair feels dry. It is a mixture of water, a little jojoba oil, hemp seed oil, and Infusium 23 (the moisture/frizz kind). I’ll probably wear two-strand twists more since my hair is a little longer now.
CN: How do you protect your curls at night?
I tie a satin scarf around my edges and put a bonnet on top of that.
CN: What would you tell a new natural, or transitioning diva?
Everyone’s texture is not the same. Just because your curls/coils/whatever you choose to call them don’t look like someone else’s, doesn’t mean that your hair is any less beautiful. Embrace
your napps and be PROUD of what God gave you :)! Also, what works for some, doesn’t work for everyone.
CN: What’s the best thing about being naturally glamorous?
FREEDOM. The freedom to swim as much as you want, walk in the rain, and work-out everyday…along with everything else. It feels great not to have to limit yourself because you “don’t want to mess your hair up.” BTW I recently learned how to swim towards the
beginning of this year :D.
CN: Anything else you want to add?
Peace, Love, and NAPPINESS!!!
