What is your Daily Hair Regimen?
Daily, it depends on my hair. I typically have to use a leave-in conditioner every other day to revitalize it. I typically twist or braid my hair to get waves or style it differently.
What is Your Wash Day Regimen and how often is it?
I wash my hair every other week using SheaMoisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo or an apple cider vinegar rinse. After that, I deep condition with SheaMoisture’s Coconut and Hibiscus Curl and Shine Conditioner. When the conditioner is out, I use the L.O.C. method to hydrate my hair. I make a mixture of oils (coconut, tea tree, and extra virgin olive oil) and use Botanical Spirits Avocado Coconut Milk Butter to seal. From here, I usually do a twist out or stretch my hair. Once a month I make a hair mask with banana, honey, egg, avocado, and coconut oil. I leave it on my hair for about an hour.
What do you love about your hair?
What I love most about my hair is how big it gets. I used to get really uncomfortable to wear it big in public, but now it makes me feel so powerful. I also love that it’s mine. No matter what state it is in, it is my hair. When I had perms and weaves I felt like I was always trying to keep up with the new thing [trends]. Now I just feel free. I do whatever I want with my hair.
What is your favorite hair style and how do you make it last throughout the week?
My favorite styles are twist-outs and crown braids. The crown braid is really easy to keep up with as long as I tie it up. With my twist outs, I pull my hair back in a satin pony tail holder and then wrap it in my scarf.
Give any piece of advice that you wish someone had given you about hair.
Your natural hair is what you were born with. Natural hair is for everybody! I also wish someone would’ve told me that all textures are different so I shouldn’t be discouraged when my hair doesn’t turn out like the people I see on Youtube.
What is your hair goal(s) and how do plan to achieve it?
My hair goal is bra strap length hair. I am working to achieve this by protective styling and making sure my hair stays moisturized and hydrated. I am currently taking vitamin E and biotin.
