Are you natural or permed? My hair is currently natural. I have been natural for a year and a half now and my hair type is a 4B but when it is cold outside my hair will turn into a 4C which is so stressful.
Why did you go natural?
i went natural because my permed hair was becoming so damaged. When you do your fresh perm your edges are beautiful, laid and slick but then after about two weeks when it starts getting dry and your hair starts blowing away in the wind... so yeah i hadn't permed my hair in 3 months and my re growth was serious. I was advised by a friend to just go natural waited about 3 more months to do my big chop and actually did it.
What are your staple hair products?
Eco styler gel
Cream of nature moisturiser
Elasta QP glace
Any Hair tips?
omg ..hair tips. Cream your hair especially in the winter the LOC method is very good and i recently started trying the inversion method and i think its working quite well. Other then that to get your edges to be flat after you gel them wrap a scarf around it and it lasts a lot longer and it gets less frizzy.
What is the inversion method?
the inversion method is when you massage your scalp firstly with any oil of your choice. I personally use a mixture of caster oil coconut oil and almond oil and then you lean forward so that your body is at a 90 degree angle and you keep your head facing downwards for 3 minutes. After that race your head up slowly this increases your blood flow to your brain and it also stimulates the hair follicles. Apparently you can get about 2 inches of hair growth in a week.
Your favourite protective hair style?
My favourite protective hair style is box braids because i can have them in for about 2/3 months and it's really easy to oil my scalp so i have no issues with that. my second one would be a weave with a closure but its harder to moistures my hair but i like that i can pretend it is my own.
Funniest hair experience?
I have to really think about that...a protective hair style as i said before with weave when the wind blows the tracks are just to much. i have instances when i meet someone and they're like "hey you alright" the wind blows and thats it, its game over and thats embarrassing.
What are your hair aspirations?
hmm.... To not be bald? i don't know. I want to be waits length before I'm the age of 25 but really I'm focusing on my hair being healthy more than length.
