Hey I’m a begginer. At least I consider myself one, and I am a black woman. 25 yrs old…
Are you relaxed, natural, texturized or texlaxed?
Natural since Oct 2012.
What’s your story, how did you get to where you are?
I thought my relaxer was the cause of my hair breakage in a certain spot, so I went natural so the hair spot wouldn’t break off anymore. It still did, so I know it’s not the perm now. My hair dresser thought it was birth control, but it wasn’t. I figured it was some of the methods I had been using.
I tried to stretch my hair using the banding technique and that is what caused my hair to break off in that spot again. When I had a perm, I think my hair broke off in that one spot because I was always wrapping my hair at night.
Describe a typical regimen and your daily maintenance routine.
Prepoo. Clarify shampoo monthly, and deep condition after every wash. I like trying various heatless stretching techniques. Banding was an epic fail!
Are you happy with your progress so far?
I’m happy with my progress so far. It’s the breakage that was the minor set back. I have been massaging that spot with JBCO*.
What’s your signature style?
2 strand twist. I keep going back to them in some way shape or form.
How do you ensure that your ends are protected from the elements and your hands?
I wear a hat outside with a silk scarf* under it then I put hair in low maintenance style.
Do you have a goal length or are you more concerned about the health of your hair?
Right now I’m more concerned about the health of my hair.
Is there anything that your hair hates?
Do you have any favorite hair products?
The Shea Moisture* Gel Soufflé.
Where can we find you online?
Facebook mostly, or by personal email.
