On going natural...
I stopped getting relaxers around February of 2006. Due to some breakage from stress I just went ahead and had my hair dresser give me the big chop in August 2006.
Hair Care Regimen...
I try to wash my hair once a week. I’m pretty busy and would like to make it twice a week but never get to it! I deep condition once a week. I have really thick hair and it sucks up moisture very quickly! As for trims, I am terrified of scissor happy stylist so I didn’t for a long time. Now every few months. I flat iron and blow dry once a month. I like the big blown out look on me. But the next time I wash my hair it's usually a VERY deep conditions and air dry. I haven’t colored my hair in a long time. But my hair does react to the sun and gets lighter. My favorite deep conditioning ingredient is coconut milk. Usually I just open the can and apply it to my hair almost like a relaxer. I use a large tooth comb to work it in, wrap my hair with plastic wrap and let it sit for about an hour. I rinse it out with warm water until it runs clear. It makes my hair so soft and I don’t touch it for days! Also I use almond, soy, and olive oil to oil my scalp every couple of days. There is this amazing line called “Urban Therapy” A lost of the products are de-frizzing which is great for me. Only problem is it’s mostly sold in England. I just happen to stumble upon it at TJ Maxx one day. Also, Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding when I can get my hands on some! Aussie’s 3 minuet Deep Conditioner (I leave it in for about 30 mins)is pretty good too. I buy hair products anywhere: TJ Maxx, Wal Mart, Target, random hair stores around town, it doesn’t matter much to me! My favorite way to wear my hair is to wash and put in flexi rods. It produces these pretty cool barrel curls or a big blow out look.
My hair shero is Angela Davis.
