Meet Chantel Baylor!

My hair is…natural.

I started my hair journey when…I turned 21 almost seven years ago. I wore my hair in braids for two years before I cut all the relaxed hair off and rocked my real hair with so much pride you would have thought I was Miss America!

My current hair regimen includes

• A daily LOC process (liquid, oil, cream) and braiding

• Weekly washing with sulfate free shampoo and light conditioning and an apple cider rinse.

• Monthly Homemade deep condition (mayo, eggs, honey, essential oils, apple vinegar)

•Trims every 4 months

My favorite hair products include… 1. Giovanni Invigorating Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner 2. Carols Daughter Lisa Hair Elixir 3. EcoStyler Gel

The secret to having healthy hair is... to treat it like a growing garden. You plowed the land and planted the seeds, now it's important to feed it, listen to it, learn from mistakes and watch it grow!

My biggest hair challenge is… hair growth. I’ve been natural for longer than most women, but my hair growth doesn’t reflect it. It used to make me so angry and frustrated, but now I know we all have our own journey and mine is just a little slower than others.

I love my hair because…it defines me! My attitude, my confidence, my makeup, my outfits all reflect the way I rock my hair.

My hair crush is…Solange! She is most definitely my idol.
