I started my relaxed hair journey in January of 2011. I keep my regimen simple: Deep condition 1x a week, co-wash 1x a week & protein treatment about every 3 weeks. I only comb through my hair in the shower with conditioner in it under running water. My hair is moisturized & sealed nightly. My hair seems to LOVE Herbal Essences' Hello Hydration conditioner. Extra virgin coconut oil is another thing that my hair loves.
What #1 hair tip you would pass on to other relaxed haired ladies who are starting their hair journey?
Don't be afraid to trim your ends. In most cases, people who start hair journeys are seeking length. So many people get caught up in the "length hype" that they will lightly trim their immediate ends or don't trim at all. If your ends are split and/or thinning, doing so will only hurt you in the long run.
Nowadays it's becoming more uncommon to see relaxed hair or products geared towards relaxed hair. Do you feel the pressure to go natural? Why or why not? What are your thoughts on the natural hair movement?
I don't feel pressured to go natural. For me, it's a mind thing. Are you truly relaxing your hair because it's convenient for you and your lifestyle? If so, it's sort of hard to feel any pressure at all. I think that the natural hair movement is amazingly uplifting. I love the fact that they are embracing their natural texture. I'm totally here for all black women, period.
Why do you choose to remain relaxed while many are transitioning back to their natural hair?
I've never been a "follow-the-leader" type of individual. I love natural hair but I'm enjoying my relaxed hair at the moment.
What do you absolutely love about your relaxed tresses? And why?
I love the thickness of my hair. I always air dry my hair after cowashes and washes so 9 times out of 10 it's full of texture and fluffy goodness. I feel like the thickness of my hair makes styling more versatile. *flips hair* LOL
