Nitra Is Lovin’ Relaxed
What is your favorite hair product(s) or product line?
ORS, formally known as Organic Root Stimulator, and Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner
What is your Daily Hair Regimen?
Daily?!? Hmm I usually moisturize my hair with ORS Moisturizing Hair Lotion and put it in a simply style whether its hanging straight down or in a ponytail. I am very simple and boring on a daily basis. Moisturizing and Sealing at night with ORS Hair Lotion and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
What is Your Wash Day Regimen?
I am slowly changing products. Wash days for me are between 2 and 3 weeks. My usual or old wash day consist of ORS Shampoo and Conditioner with Cantu Shea Butter as my leave in. I part my hair into two sections, wet each side, and apply shampoo once. I use the conditioner as stated on the packaging. After I wash it out I then apply my leave and also use it as a deep conditioner for 10 to 15 minutes under the dryer.
Recently, I used the Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner. I absolutely loves these two products. The shampoo strips all the dirt from my hair and leaves it feeling squeaking clean. I can’t forget the smell oh my gosh, I love it.
What do you love about your hair?
This is a really hard question for me. I would have to say the length and being one of many to prove that black girls can have long hair whether you are natural or relaxed. To prove to none believers that all black girls/women don’t have to depend on weaves. We wear it because its a want more than a need.
What is your favorite hair style?
I am very boring and simple when it comes to hairstyles because I am afraid of changing many hairstyle because of my fear that the health and grow. For example, using heat every other day by curling it will possibly break it out. If you see me my hair would either be straight or in a ponytail, but my favorite style is bantu knots. I have a love/hate relationship with buns because sometimes they come out perfect and other times they don’t.
What are some of the things that you have removed from your regimen?
I haven’t really removed anything. I am more so adding things instead. I have never had a strict regimen with a bunch of products because I was too afraid to try them. I only stick to what I know. Slowly but surely I will be removing sulfate shampoos once I find a good one.
Give any piece of advice that you wish someone had given you about hair.
I think that my hair would have been much thicker if I wouldn’t have used a lot of heat on my hair without a heat protectant. Don’t use petroleum because it clogs up your pores. Incorporate oils into your regimen (i.e., coconut, olive oil, and castor). Less Heat! No Petroleum! Add Oils! Health over Length! Patience is key!
What is your hair goal(s) and how do plan to achieve it? If you’ve achieved your goal(s), what was it and how did you achieve it?
I have reached my goal length, but it’s in the shape of a V. I plan on growing the rest of it so that it is even without having to cut it and start over. I would want my hair to be a little bit thicker than it is. Castor Oil will work wonders to help me with that.
