Introduce yourself . . .
Hi! My name is Victoria and I am the natural hair blogger behind ClassyCurlies.com. Outside of blogging I am a full-time student studying journalism.
Are you relaxed, natural, texturized or texlaxed?
I am natural
What’s your story, how did you get to where you are?
I began my journey toward the end of 2009. I was interested in stretching out my relaxers because I noticed that my hair grew much faster.
A few months after I began researching how to transition and the “going natural” process. I was curious to see my natural pattern.
In May 2010 I began transitioning after my last relaxer. I did the big chop the following summer of 2011. Since then I have experimenting with different styles and products.
What is your typical weekly regimen?
I cleanse my hair once a week with a variety of products. I prepoo with aloe vera gel(affiliate link) on my scalp and a conditioner on my hair. From there I wash and condition, followed by a deep conditioner(affiliate link).
Are you happy with your progress so far?
I am very happy with my progress. I always had shoulder length or longer hair so it is interesting to see it in its curly state.
What’s your signature style?
I absolutely love two-strand twists and twistouts!
How do you ensure that your ends are protected from the elements and your hands?
I wear my hair in two-strand twists often. I also pin my twists up often for an updo.
Do you have a goal length or are you more concerned about the health of your hair?
I am very concerned about keeping my hair healthy. Having healthy hair is my number one goal, however I have a length that I would like to achieve. I wish to reach bra strap length stretched and I am about 2-3 inches from reaching this goal!
Is there anything that you hair hates?
My hair does not like hard water. I am sure that no one’s hair likes hard water. It is sometimes hard to properly cleanse my hair with this issue.
Do you have any favorite hair products?
I love to Shea Moisture(affiliate link) brand of products. One of my new favorites is the As I Am Coconut Cowash(affiliate link). Tresemme Naturals Conditioner(affiliate link) also has a special place in my heart.
