How long have you been natural and when did you BC?
I have been totally natural for the last 17 months. I transitioned for 5 months and did the big chop on Sept. 2008. I love my hair in its natural state.
What are your staple products and hairstyles?
My staple products are all of the products included in the Hydratherma Naturals Healthy Hair Care Product Collection. I realized that hair needed a balance of protein and moisture on a regular basis. Too much of either (moisture or protein) can cause breakage. Because of this is, I use the Hydratherma Naturals Protein Balance Leave In Conditioner, Daily Moisturizing Growth Lotion and seal in the moisture with our Hair Growth Oil on a daily basis. This gives me a nice protein / moisture balance daily. I usually wear my hair in twist or a curly fro.
What are your natural hair goals?
I will just let my hair grow, grow and grow!!!! No more chemicals. I will not cut my hair again…only trimming.
How do you keep your hair intact overnight?
I faithfully sleep with a satin bonnet.
How do you maintain length?
I maintain length by maintaining a nice moisture / protein balance and by manipulating my hair very little. The less natural hair is manipulated ….the better! I do not comb my hair while it is in its dry state. I only comb my hair on wash days while my hair is saturated with conditioner. This cuts down on breakage a great deal!!! Also shampooing in the shower is a must!
Name 1 reason you went natural and why you love being natural.
I ultimately missed my natural hair texture!!! I missed all of my kinks and curls! I absolutely love wearing my hair in its natural state. I feel free physically, mentally and spiritually! Words cannnot express how happy I am!
