In this 3rd installment of NHE, I decided to interview my very good friend, Brandy. She has been natural for few years now and I can tell you this, if Brandy can maintain a healthy natural hair anyone can 🙂 Please continue reading to learn how she’s been caring for her hair.
How long have you been natural?
Approximately 3 years.
What made you decide to go natural?
The creamy crack devastated my hair, length and body, enough was enough.
What is your experience so far as a natural?
It has not always been easy to manage, but mainly due to inexperience, no regrets.
Please describe your hair texture/type
I am not sure, but I will assume one of the 4s.
What are your favorite hair products and what have they done for your hair?
Joico conditioner and Coconut oil, L’anza is also a great hair care brand.
Describe your hair care regimen and reason behind it
lol… not sure I have any. I am the laziest natural ever, which may be a good thing. I tend to not manipulate my hair very much, but the mainstay is oil, oil, oil. Since my hair is naturally dry, I moisturize everyday as preventative against tangles.
What are your go-to hairstyles?
Blow out or twist out, the simpler the better.
What advice do you have for new or old naturals hoping to grow their hair healthier?
My lazy self is likely not the best person for this, however, the less trauma/manipulation your hair endures, the longer it grows. Health is individual, some hair (mine) can survive a lot of stress, however, a good hair stylist is imperative! Preferably, one who is natural. A person without a clue will destroy your hair.
Do you have a blog and/or social media page people can visit for more info?
I do, but they won’t find any information of value about hair… lol, and you know this Linda, don’t ask me this!
