Does the beauty below look familiar? I am sure you have seen her face all over the net and on American Apparel billboards and ads. I am happy to welcome Miss. Asia Dee and her curls to The Good Hair Blog. Read her curly girl story below. I hope you enjoy!
Hey there! My name is Asia Dee. I am a model from Long Beach, based in Los Angeles.
What is your current hair regimen?
My hair has a mind of its own. I wash it every couple of days and allow it to air dry. I use conditioner and a hair pomade every day to maintain in between washing.
When you travel how do you care for your hair?
Since my hair upkeep is fairly simple, the only thing I NEED to have is conditioner. Using baby hotel bottles of conditioner is not cute.
Being a model, how do you feel about stylists using too much heat on your hair, if at all?
I honestly don’t mind since I never apply too much heat to my hair personally. I just keep an eye out to make sure they don’t drown it in hairspray directly after applying heat since it can cause major damage.
How would you describe your hair type?
Big, wild & crazy. My hair has a lot of volume & it’s very thick. I have about 3 different kinds of curls in my hair, some are bouncy coils, some are wavier & some are looser.
What type of products work best for your curls?
My hair works best with products that have oils that aren’t overbearing. My hair eats up moisture so products that keep my hair hydrated are lifesavers.
When did you decide to go natural or have you been a curly girl all your life?
I’ve been a curly girl my whole life (aside from a few middle school/high school straight hair obsession phases).
Did you ever struggle with curly girl insecurities? If so, what helped you adjust to your naturally curly hair over the years?
I was never so much insecure about my hair but more so burdened with it when I was younger. My mom did my hair every day until I was 13 so when I had to start doing it on my own I was lost. I still can’t do my hair as nicely as my mom did, but I’ve finally got the hang of making it manageable at the very least.
What makes you love your kinks, curls and coils?
I love that I can honestly say no one has hair exactly like mine. Curly hair comes in so many shapes & forms, I love it!
