I joke and tell people that I am type 4abcxyz. I think, compared to the standard hair typing system, I am 4b/c. I have a few 4a coils in my nape area. Also, my hair is very thick and dense, except for the nape area, which is more fine.
What is your typical weekly regimen?
I prepoo (with coconut oil*), wash, and then condition every 2-3 weeks. I moisturize weekly. I twist and detangle my hair every 2-4 weeks.
How do you usually wear your hair?
Twists! I wear them in updos, buns, ponytails, etc.
How do you combat dryness?
Four main ways:
1. Wash regularly (which helps to remove product buildup that reduces moisture penetration).
2. Pre-poo (which decreases the drying effects of shampoo).
3. Use a good conditioner (which helps to replenish any moisture lost in the washing process).
4. Use a good sealant (which locks in moisture and keeps the hair supple).

Do you have a goal length and when do you hope to get there?
My goal length has varied over the year, but right now, I would be happy to graze hip length.
What is the best tip that you can share for natural hair?
