Introduce yourself . . .
Hello! My name is MaRae. I’m a lover of fashion, shopping, and most of all, life.
Are you relaxed, natural, texturized or texlaxed?
What’s your story, how did you get to where you are?
I first went natural in 2011 starting in June but I gave in at the end of the August and got a perm. After wanting to try something new I decided to actually go through the process of becoming natural and in October of 2012 I had my last perm.
What is your typical weekly regimen?
I wash and deep condition my hair every Sunday. I wash with Organix and Carol’s Daughter shampoo then I deep condition by mixing my three favorite conditioners together. Then I let it sit on my hair for about 45 minutes and wash it out. While my hair is still wet I spray on some Hask Placenta for protein. After that I put Cantu Shea Butter* Deep Leave-In conditioner* and olive*/coconut oil* in my hair to seal after which I do a twist out.
Are you happy with your progress so far?
I am loving my progress! It’s healthy and it’s growing.
What’s your signature style?
My signature style is a twist out or a puff.
How do you ensure that your ends are protected from the elements and your hands?
I ensure that my ends are protected by using products that are not harmful for my hair or skin. As far as my ends any product that I use on my hair I make sure that I use a generous amount on my ends especially.
Do you have a goal length or are you more concerned about the health of your hair?
I do have a goal length but I am mainly concerned with having healthy hair. I will maintain length by keeping my hair moisturized at all times and getting my hair trimmed ever 6 months or once a year.
Is there anything that you hair hates?
Not really. If my hair doesn’t like certain products it will not keep the moisture from the product at all.
Do you have any favorite hair products?
My favorite products are Carols Daughter Tui Herbal shampoo, Organix Coconut Milk shampoo, Cantu Shea Butter leave-in conditioner, Coconut oil, Extra virgin olive oil*, Palmer’s hair milk, Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner, Organix Biotin & Collagen conditioner, Shea Moisture products*, and Olive Oil Eco Styler gel.
