Do you or have you ever had chemical relaxer?
I've never touched that because i have hear mad stories, how it has burnt their scalp, how your hair just falls out and it just looks weird.
How often do you go to the barbers and do you cheat ?
Obviously i have a trim now, i haven't been in 4 weeks so it just depends sometimes I don't have time for it and sometimes I'm grinding just a hair cut of a achiever. Do i ever cheat? yeah a lot actually I'm a Nigerian so it comes naturally, can I say that (laughs).
Do you have a hair regime?
Yeah i do, it varies a lot some days i wake up and i will be in a rush so i will just get in the shower wash my hair, wash my beard and just dry it but it takes a long time to dry. Then i cream it, the same way you cream your hair you cream your beard. On other days obviously their is shampoo and conditioner basically do the same thing you do on your hair on your beard.
Do you prefer to have a trim, shaven or natural ?
I would rather have a trim I won't say i have a choice because my hair grows really fast. When i cut my hair or beard it grows back so quick so i decided to have a trim rather then clean shaven.
When did you decide to grow a beard?
It was during the first year of uni when i decided, obviously money was short so i couldn't get a trim like every week and then i realised that my hair kept growing so i might as well leave it and get it trimmed of rather then cut.
Do you have a beauty regime ?
I wouldn't say its a beauty regime but i just cream like:
- cocoa butter
- Hair cream
Do you have a beard regime?
With my beard i use blue magic and a mixture between brushing and combing:
- Cream with blue magic
- Comb it take all the knots out
- Brush it in the direction of the hair to keep the trim alive
the more you brush the beard the more gaps get connected.
Worst/funniest hair experience?
okay, obviously i wasn't always about this high top life i had a number 3 and i said can you just trim it down a bit lower. The barber just did high haha on my hair he dropped it to like a 2 and the hairline was just running back yeah it wasn't nice.
What are levels and numbers?
Lets talk about numbers, some girls my find this a bit confusing if you like take some note, grab your pen and paper.
First their is level 1 a short cut kind of bald it starts from 0, 0.5 and 1 but we are talking about whole numbers. So 1 is low level 2 is double that, I'm not really explaining it properly am I but the numbers are basically how far the barber cuts your hair down so i think its like 1mm, 2mm something like that .
What are your hair aspirations ?
Recently its changed because I realised that I'm growing up and i have the same hair style so I've been thinking that i should try the low level cut with a beard. I've seen a couple of guys and its working for them so I've been thinking to try the low level with a really thick beard but lets just see how it goes.
