I love a good conversation starter and I also enjoy connecting with people I wouldn't normally have the opportunity to connect with. One thing that connects me with others from all walks of life is my hair which recently I get lots of questions about. So today I decided just to answer a few of my most asked questions.
1. How long have you been natural?
Well I have been growing my hair out naturally free of heat and perms for the last 2.5 years. I am 4 months shy of meeting my 3 year naturversary and I can't wait! I want to do something really big so stay tuned.
2. Do you color your hair yourself?
Based on past experiences I learned that if you want something done right you do it yourself and that's what happened when I decided to add a little funk to my look by coloring it. I'm head over heel in love with the Dark n lovely honey blonde color. It was very easy to apply and from the moment I first tried it I've been in luv. I retouch it maybe 2x's a year and as long as I keep my hair moisturized and trimmed I haven't noticed any damage. I'm actually due for a retouch soon for stay tuned for that as well.
3. How do you get your hair to curl?
I get this question a lot but because this sorta came about due to trial and error I'm not really sure of the answer. I noticed that if I applied the Cantu Coconut curling cream to my hair in section then for some reason the curls were more defined than if I applied the crème to my entire head. Not sure if that logic works for everyone but it definitely works for me. I think its a matter of finding what method works best for your particular type of hair.
4. How do you get your hair to grow?
This question still shocks me because there are times when I feel its not growing at all. Those are the times I look back at old pictures and I'm suddenly amazed at the difference. Again, I don't exactly have an answer for this question. I try to eat right, drink plenty of water, exercise, not add too many products to my hair and maintain a fuss free regiment. I'm not sure if these things are helping promote healthy hair growth but so far it's working for me.
5. What products do you use in your hair?
My hair is naturally pretty thin so if I add too many products it easily becomes overwhelmed. I also am not that person who'd hooked on hair products and has to buy and try them all. because of this I have actually used the same products I used from day 1. Cantu Coconut Curling Cream, Eco Styler Aloe Vera Gel, and most recently Jamaican Black Castor Oil. Right now these seem to be working for me so I'm going to ride with them until the wheels falls off. I often think about trying out new products but then I think why if what I'm using works for me.
