Introduce yourself . . .
Hello everyone! I’m 30 years old woman from Bluefield, WV. My occupation is a Bank Teller at the Credit Union & I absolutely love it! I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Marketing.
Are you relaxed, natural, texturized or texlaxed?
What’s your story, how did you get to where you are?
When I was a child, my mom from time to time would get someone to do my hair in box braids. I noticed every time I took the braids out, my hair grew some.
Back in January 2013, I got my ends cut and decided to let my hair grow out and this brought back memories of when my hair use to grow when I got braids. In February 2013, I got a sew in, I wasn’t happy with my sew in so I took it out a month later.
My friend then told me about a friend of hers that sells remy virgin hair and she does the sew in as well. In May 2013, I got her friend to do my hair, I was so happy with the results, I kept the hair in til August. My hair grew a lot!
In September 2013, the doctor informed me that I will have to undergo major surgery in October. I didn’t want to be bothered with my hair while I was in the hospital and when I was recovering, so I decided to get box braids. I relaxed 3 days after I took out my braids, my hair grew so much! This is the longest my hair has every been!
What is your typical weekly regimen?
I wrap my hair every single night with a silky scarf. I do not put too much product in my hair and I wash my hair every other week.
Are you happy with your progress so far?
Yes I’m very happy! I love how protective hairstyles helps my hair grow!
What’s your signature style?
Lately, I’ve been wearing my hair in high bun or ponytail. Sometimes I will wear it in a bob. On weekends, when I go out with the girls, I wear half wigs*.
How do you ensure that your ends are protected from the elements and your hands?
I love to use any kind of conditioner with olive oil* in it. I heard a hairstylist on T.V. say that olive oil* is the best for black hair.
Do you have a goal length or are you more concerned about the health of your hair?
I’m more concern about the health of my hair & reaching my goal length. I’ve always wanted long, beautiful hair and at the same time, I want it to be very healthy.
Is there anything that you hair hates?
My hair REALLY hates heat. I have to use a heat protector every time I put any kind of heat to my hair. It also hate super perms, I always have to get my perms for normal hair.
