Introduce yourself . . .
Hello, My name is Dee Dee and I’m a 56 year old mother of two. I work in the Information Tech field.
Are you relaxed, natural, texturized or texlaxed?
I have been natural since November of 2012, when I did the BC
What’s your story, how did you get to where you are?
I decided to go natural after I realized that putting relaxer in my hair was causing it to become thin. I had always had thick hair in my youth and didn’t like the fact that as I aged my hair was thinning.
What is your typical weekly regimen?
I normally wear wigs(affiliate link) as protective styles when I work and wear my natural hair on the weekends. I like wash and goes but I can’t leave the house with wet hair during the week.
Are you happy with your progress so far?
I am near my nineteenth month anniversary of being natural and I don’t regret going natural. I went natural a year before but got weak and put a relaxer in my hair after a year.
I regretted putting in that relaxer and did a BC about 3 months later. I am happy with my hair now but look forward to it growing.
What’s your signature style?
I wear wash and go’s most of the time. I have done a blow out afro a few times but I realize putting heat on my hair is not good because I dye my hair.
How do you ensure that your ends are protected from the elements and your hands?
I wear wigs(affiliate link) with my hair braided most of the time and I use homemade flaxseed gel, with castor oil(affiliate link), olive oil(affiliate link) and grapeseed oil(affiliate link) when I wear my wash and goes. The gel keeps my hair moisturized.
Do you have a goal length or are you more concerned about the health of your hair?
I would like a big fro…lol but I also want healthy hair.
Is there anything that you hair hates?
My hair tends to frizz because I dye it reddish blond but I like the color so I had to keep it moisturized.
Do you have any favorite hair products?
