When hairstylists complimented this Bronx, NY native on her beautiful curl pattern, she knew it was time to embrace her natural coils.
My hair is… Natural
I started my hair journey…On April 20, 2012. I overheard one of the hairstylists questioning why I relax my hair and she said I had a beautiful curl pattern. This was actually the third time that I had heard this from different stylists so that day was the last time I relaxed my hair. I wanted to learn more about my hair in it’s natural state and learn to appreciate the beauty that others saw.
My current hair regimen includes...going to the salon on a weekly/bi-weekly basis (whenever I wear my hair straight) to get a deep conditioner, wash and set and trims as needed. When I feel like my hair needs a break from heat styling, I wear protective styles or braid outs and rod sets. When my hair is in its curly state I shampoo it once a month and co-wash every other day. I deep condition weekly and moisturize daily.
My favorite hair products include…
1. Pantene Co-wash Cleansing Conditioner
2. Karen’s Body Beautiful Leave-in Conditioner
3. Carol’s Daughter TUI
4. Beautiful Textures Curl Definer
5. Hawaiian Silk Edge Control
The secret to having healthy hair is...making sure it is always moisturized, you have healthy trimmed ends and you try not to over manipulate it.
My biggest hair challenge is...trying to find styles that are not very time consuming. I have a very busy schedule so it's difficult for me to spend a lot of time styling and restyling my hair.
I love my hair because...of it’s versatility. The ability to wear it straight or curly excites me. I love being able to achieve different looks and I love the response that I receive!
