Is your hair permed or Natural?
My hair is natural. I went Natural out of pure lazyness, i used to go home to get my hair permed by my mum. Imagine having to go all the way back to manchester to get my hair done. I decided it was a waste of money and time consuming, so i thought let me just leave my hair alone and since then i have just gotten braid, weaves and stuff to protect my hair. After the first year of university i went back and i got my hair permed and i thought ugh...this isn't even that good and just decided to cut all my hair off after that. i ended up with no hair on my head and looked for a boy for a while. I went into work after my colleague's had seen me in my extensions and weaves and they asked "what happened to your hair?" and i said well i cut my hair. I felt so unattractive for i mean no amount of make up no earnings non of that could help with that whole situation. But i'm kinda glad i went natural because my hair is much fuller and healthier.
What are your staple hair products?
To keep my hair moisturised:
Cantu leave in conditioner
Elasta QP Deep conditioner
Palmers shea conditioner & shampoo
Your favourite protective hair style?
My go to protective hair style are twist outs and flat twist because its the only thing i can do because i can't do my hair to save my life. I currently have extensions in my hair that i made my self and took forever to make because i am lazy. Being natural can have its ups and downs, it can be fun when it wants to be and maybe not as fun when your in a rush and when you wash your hair the shrinkage is real! your hair can be massive and huge one day and super short the next day.
What are your hair aspiration?
My hair aspiration for it to be nice and big and "volumes" if thats a word?. Hopefully i will get it to the length of my extensions It would be perfect. Would never have to do my hair again, it would be in a bun on the colder days. So yeah my hair aspiration is to be healthy, long, curly and just natural.
