I’ve been natural my whole life. Well except for the summer of 8th grade I convinced my mom to let me get a relaxer. I got it, didn’t really remember much of a difference and left it at that. I never got another one. I didn’t know about “transitioning” then so it just grew out. Eventually I cut my hair. Sometimes I forget that even happened lol.
My staple products would have to be conditioner and oil. I LOVE conditioner. I try new ones all the time simply for smells. But my go-to all time fave is Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deeper Moisture. I use it for everything, cowashing/DC’ing/Steam Treatments/leave-in you name it! My favorite oil is Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. Another staple product would have to be heat protectant for when I straighten my hair. I really like Got2Be- Sleek Blowdry/Flatiron Lotion for Course Hair.
It leaves my hair really light weight and soft. And lastly, Njoi Creations Sweet Coconut Hair Pomade. It gives me great shine and the yummy smell lingers all day! For shampoo which I use once every 10 or so days I use Giovanni Tea Trea Oil Shampoo. It makes my scalp all tingly and smells really good. Plus it’s sulfate free and it doesn’t strip my hair like other shampoos.
My staple hair style is DEFINITELY buns. I wear my hair in a bun virtually everyday. I like to accessorize my buns. I prefer hairsticks/forks. I also like to wear flowers in my hair. I wear alot of neutral clothing so I let my hair toy stand out.
What is your regimen?
What are your natural hair goals?
My 1st goal is to reach WL. That will be the longest my hair has been in my adult life. I’d eventually like to see if I could reach tailbone. That would be something!
