|My Hair Diary | Looking Back On My Hair Journey From 2012 - 2015|
All About My Natural
All About My Regimen and Products
Very simple. I don't work too hard. For example, my Wash Days are about 2 hours from washing to styling.
How long did it take you to get a pretty good hair regimen?
I have always had thin edges, so massage coffee infused oil (with JBCO) on my scalp and edges 4xs a week and use my Mango-Cocoa Creme on top to slick them down. I also tie a satin scarf around my edges to help slick them down.
All About My Styles
What are some things you can’t do you see other naturalistas doing?
I sure do! I love Senegalese twists and wear them for 4 to 6 weeks. However, I have just come across a new love: Crochet braids.
Do you visit the salon often or are you a DIY girl?
I hardly go to the salon. Maybe once or twice a year to get my hair braided.
Would you rather have frizz or shrinkage?
You know, I don't mind the shrinkage. But frizz? It's inevitable. My fine hair will always have frizz, but I don't mind it. I get more volume that way.
I have when I had my hair relaxed in a burnt blonde color. I would love to try that again. I think a light auburn color would go nicely with my skin color and convey my feisty and chic character. I do use henna that tends to color my hair in a redish-purple kind of hue. But as for temporary, I use different kinds of hair chalk and colors from Maybelline Eye Tattoo Eye Cream Shadow. Love them!
Do you have any hair confessions?
1). I can lose 50 new bobby pins in a week! (not on purpose).
2). My flat ironing sucks...
3). I have done my 3 younger sisters' hair since I was 12.
4). I don't like wearing my hair out too often.
5). I get annoyed when people ask for tips and help...and don't take it!
All About My Experiences and Memories
I do sometimes. When I do feel over-whelmed, I put my hair in a long term protective style, which would help me to refresh and reboot for when my natural returns.
