My Hair Story – Bernadetta

My Hair Story - Bernadetta

Introduce yourself …

Hi, my name is Bernadetta and I am natural since 2011, and I’m loving it. I am very kind, I love to do hair also like to laugh.

Are you relaxed, natural, texturized or texlaxed?


What’s your story, how did you get to where you are?

I decided to go back to nature in 2011, because I wasn’t excited about my relaxed hair any more, it wasn’t for me. I have decided to remain natural, I have a 3C curl pattern. My hair is fuller and healthier now that I have the right products to use and always deep condition my hair.

What is your typical weekly regimen?

My typical weekly regimen consist of shampoo and conditioning, and deep conditioning with my Garnier Fructis shampoo and conditioner followed by Africa’s Best Organics Hair Mayonnaise Conditioning Treatment. I also use the Tresemme Split Remedy Leave-In Conditioning Treatment, & Tresmme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray. Then I style!

Are you happy with your progress so far?


What’s your signature style?

My signature style is curls, flat iron, bun, braid out, or wash and go

How do you ensure that your ends are protected from the elements and your hands?

I keep my hair up and ends clipped.

Do you have a goal length or are you more concerned about the health of your hair?

I’m more concerned about the health of my hair and the goal length I’m going for is WL

Is there anything that you hair hates?

My hair hate Organix Beauty Pure and Simple it weighs my hair down and I will have no volume or body to it.

Do you have any favorite hair products?

Yes, Garnier Fructis shampoo and conditioner, Africa’s Best Organics Hair Mayonnaise Conditioning Treatment, Tresmme Split Remedy Leave-In Conditioning Treatment, and Tresmme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray.

    beautiful!…are there any other good shampoos and conditioners for natural hair besides Garnier Fructis..their shampoo makes my hair matted and hard to detangle

    1. Aniesha

      You could try tresseme naturals moisture conditioner. I’ve found Vo5 give me moisture to be a good one too and herbal essences hello hydration. I’m still experimenting with shampoos as i don’t use them often so can’t give any suggestions on that.

      Hope this helps. 🙂

    How do you keep hair soft when you going from perm to natural. It’s hard for me to keep it from tangling and being rough when I’m waiting to put a perm

    Dominque Rochelle your hair is not in its natural state if it dyed anyone that knows anything about hair kniw dye makes your hair extremely dry and split

    1. bernadetta

      I been dying my hair every two years, in my hair is not dry or split at all, everyone hair is different and nobody can tell a person what they hair can take. And I deep conditioning my hair every week and keep it up so it won’t break off, but after the color grow out my natural hair color come back. And with the color my hair still curly 3a.

    Hair coloring is a chemical change therefore the hair is no longer natural whether its straight curly kinky coily or otherwise

    I agree with Sylvia Brown and Brande Richmond whenever you change the state of your hair using anything with chemicals it’s not virgin nor natural, that doesn’t just apply to relaxed hair

    What about a semi?? Some older natural haired people have to dye their gray hair. Are they not considered natural?…Her hair is pretty and healthy

    Her hair is pretty, your as natural as you believe you are. Don’t let anyone try and take that away from you, because you chose to dye your hair. I’ve been natural almost three years with and without dye and my hair has always stayed it’s kinky texture.

    The correct term would be CURLY. Caucasian people don’t go around debating whether they’re “natural” if they’ve colored their hair, I’ll never understand why we do this to each other. But Hair is defined by wavy, curly or straight.
