Are you natural or permed and why?
I have natural hair. I wanted to start a fresh because last year i shaved my head and wanted to start growing it natural. I used to relax my hair a lot and it started getting quite bad so i thought i would shave it of start afresh and grow it natural but now i got braids in.
How long have you been natural ?
i shaved my hair in november so I've been natural since then i haven't touched it or done anything to it or put chemicals in it at all.
What's your favourite protective style ?
I normally like it all of but because my hair is at that awkward afro stage, like the jackson 5 stage i needed to do something to it so i just put it in braids. Normally braids are the most easiest one i can do.
Do you do your hair yourself or get it professionally done?
I do my braids my self and it takes me 11 to 12 hours to do. I start at 4pm then i will have a few hours sleep, atleast 4 hours then i get up and its all done by the morning because i don't like going through the whole night doing it.But yeah i do it my self and its cheaper as well.
How do you maintain your natural hair and protective hair?
I'm really bad at looking after my hair but thats why i had to shave it off and start again. when i have it relaxed or anything like that i just can't maintain it. So, i don't really know but my bf told me recently to put cocoa butter in my hair? I've never know how to do that but because my hair is short i don't think it will work well. i think when it gets a bit longer i will be able to see if it works on it. But yeah I just moisturise with olive oil cream
What are staple hair products?
I don't moisturise my hair everyday, i know its bad. When i have my short hair I don't put anything in it and sometimes i don't comb it but yeah i use
- olive oil cream
i use that everyday, well when i can.
Worst/Funniest hair experience?
There was one time when i dyed a strip of my hair and it was supposed to be sort of blond but then it became ginger and then it turned into some really awkward yellowy colour. I had a strip for about a year and a half, it just wouldn't go and it was just there. its not like i could cover it up......that was the worst.
What are your hair aspirations?
OMG! Right, I really want to have like, this is obviously not going to happen but I really want to have my natural hair really really long and curly. I just want that, thats all i want not much to ask.
