Are you natural or permed and why?
I have permed hair, I have had permed hair since the age of 10 I just wanted long straight hair its just crazy but i i just wanted soft straight her because my natural hair was to tough for me. I used to cry all the time and hide from my mum so she just decided to relax it.
How long have you been natural ?
Yeah I was natural to the age 10 since then i relaxed it.
What's your favourite protective style ?
I have two protective hair styles, when i don't do anything to my hair I just tie it up in a bun so not piece of hair comes out. Thats protective for me because the ends usually damage first but when i am feeling lazy about my own hair my favourite is cornrows because i just wear a wig on top.
How do you maintain your natural hair and your protective hair?
My own hair is actually a lot of effort when you relax your hair there are a lot of products used in it. What i do is i use moisturiser everyday because i have dry hair but not one that makes my hair greasy but one that keeps it moisturised. When I'm using weave or braids I just use like a dry shampoo but for braids ( forgot the name). But in general i don't anything with my braids and the same with weave.
What are staple hair products?
The products that I need are:
- Tresemme - Shampoo & Conditioner
- Olive oil - Hair Mayonnaise
- Oil moisturiser
Worst/Funniest hair experience?
When i was about 12 maybe younger i was very lazy looking after my hair and i used to get so excited about having long hair because I've always had long. I would do anything straighten it, use hot tools with out using any protective stuff for it. My left side basically had no hair their, so i had long hair and lucky it wasn't everything so i would used part of my hair to cover it. It just looked like i was trying to do a hair style that went wrong but it was just damaged.
What are your hair aspirations?
Right now I just want to grow my hair because I've been cutting my hair for so long. I've done the short hair style, the mid length I've done it all. Now I'm just trying to let it grow long like how it used to be when i was younger but much healthier thats my aspirations.
