What are your staple products?
Any type of styling cream or moisturizing CG friendly conditioner.
What is your regimen?
I cowash 2x week (Tues and Sat)
I set my hair in twists (or rollers)
To protect my hair at night, I sleep on my satin pillowcase with my hair in a pineapple
In the morning I do not add water to refresh my hair, I just take the pineapple down and fluff :)
Do you have any problem areas that require special care or attention?
Just my ends. I do not consider them to be problem areas, but I like to ensure that my ends are not dry.
What’s your fave way to wear your hair?
I am addicted to twistouts now!
How do you handle shrinkage? Do you let it be or do you stretch it? What are your stretching techniques?
I just let it be!
Do you have any tips or tricks when it comes to maintaining natural hair like yours?
Moisture, moisture, moisture! I feel that conditioning your hair is very important. If you do not do anything else always condition it!
What’s your profession? Have you encountered any negativity concerning your hair? Any pressure to straighten it?
When I first went natural I had family members say that I was going through a phase and I will not like it. I never really felt the pressure to straighten it because I always feared heat damage.
What is the worst comment that’s been made about your hair or weird encounters? What’s the best?
Worst comment: that natural hair is not profession. Best: It is very healthy
How would you describe your style? Who are your fashion inspirations? Who are your favorite designers and brands you like to wear?
I like to wear Express. I love the way their clothes fit me. I am not really into designers. Maybe one day I will get more into fashion designers. Lol.
Can you share a story about your life where you overcame an obstacle or struggle and you now give glory to God for it?
When I found out I was pregnant. I was still in college and my husband and I were dating. It was a difficult time but we made it work. My husband is a hard worker and he is very supportive. If it wasn’t for faith we probably wouldn’t have made it.
Are their areas of your life that you are working to improve so you can strengthen your relationship with God? What steps are you preparing to take in order to get there?
Yes, definitely. I would like to have more patience and not worry so much about the small stuff. There are people in this world that are not in the best situations and it is very important to remember that.
Do you have any spiritual advice for our readers? Lessons learned?
I would like to say that it is important to pray during the good, bad, and ugly. I feel that it helps with balance and your overall spiritual well being.
