Are you natural or permed and why?
I have natural hair I just transitioned/big chopped, yeah i had really long permed hair but it was not doing nice things to my ages so I had to cut it off.
How long have you been natural ?
I have been natural for about 2 months now , I'm still at the beginning of the journey and i have a while to go before I i have a nice fro. But yeah i have been natural for 2 month and before that I had relaxed hair for 4/5 years.
What's your favourite protective style ?
The wig life, the wig life because man its the easiest thing. I just started wearing wigs and its like you get home after a long day and its just freedom. I haven't really tried other protective styles so far but I think weaves and braids would not be great for me because my edges are really fragile, so yeah wigs.
Do you do your hair yourself or get it professionally done?
No, i don't make my own wigs i have a company that does that for me Hera Hair, shout out Hera Hair( now Hera by Pebbles). They make my wigs for me but apart from that under my wigs my hair is just in twist or cornrows but i do that my self.
How do you maintain your natural hair and your protective hair?
I try to keep it moisturised, spray bottle is your best friend and I'm not a fan of keeping my hair dirty so i try to wash my hair once a week or once every 2 weeks.
What are your staple hair products?
Okay so my staple hair products are :
- Carrot oil
- Olive oil
- Argon oil buttermilk
Worst/Funniest hair experience?
I think it would be the last time i had braids, this is when i had relaxed hair and i wanted short braids and this was in nigeria. This girl cut my hair, she should have told me my hair was to long for it. She cut my hair and did a really bad job iI can't even explain it but the attachment hair was sticking out of the braids, it wasn't neat and braids for me they just have to be neat. I had to go back their and had to burn it and I'm really sure the burning messed up my hair that the reason i had to cut my hair and my edges were just gone.
What are your hair aspirations?
My hair aspirations, I want to have a fro so badly, I can't wait for my actual hair to grow so that i can't ditch the wig and just have my fro and be proud of it. Yeah, in the next year i will be back and you will see again with a fro very soon.
