Curl Memoirs: Vonn of Vonn & Mish
How long have you been natural and when did you BC?
I’ve been natural for three years now. I did not do a BC. I transitioned for a year, then cut my hair to a cute bob length. I was too scared to do a BC
What are your staple products and hairstyles?
My staple products are Kinky Curly Curling Custard, Mixed Chicks Leave In Conditioner and KeraCare Creme Press
What is your regimen?
When I’m natural I wash once a week and co wash throughout the week depending on the hair style. If i am wearing my hair out, I need to wet everyday or every other day. If it is in a bun I can leave it be for a few days. If I flat iron, then I will most likely go a little over a week without washing or longer if I do not have product build up.
What are your natural hair goals?
I would love to find a cocktail of products that tame my hair without making it hard. I would also like to find combs that don’t break or fold under the pressure of my hair. There are so many styles I want to try, I want to be more bold with my hair.
How do you keep your hair intact overnight?
I used to sleep in a bonnet but it just made my hair a bowl shape. Now I just let it be and sleep on a satin pillowcase.
How do you maintain length?
I just get regular trims.
Name 1 reason you went natural and why you love being natural.
I went natural because there were more options out there now for natural hair, plus I just wanted to see if I could do it. I love being natural because it is versatile. I can do my hair however I want (straight or curly), I am free. No longer am I constrained by chemicals.
