Hair

I get tons of questions about my hair, from when I did my big chop to what products I use. It’s hard to remember everything and to go through everything I’ve done with and to my hair over the last three years so I put everything here!

If you have a question that wasn’t answered, feel free to leave it in the comment section. :)

My big chop!

My big chop!

Big chop: April 6, 2011 (transitioned for about 3 months prior)

How I care for my hair:

  • I don’t use shampoo much, if at all. It makes my hair feel like paper.
  • I co-wash my hair once a week, sometimes more.
  • I lightly spray my hair with water before styling it (unless I’m wearing a blow-out).
  • I never straighten my hair, I’ve done it two or three times in the last three and a half years.
  • Most of the time I will blow my hair out before styling because I like stretched hair, but I’ve started to get away from that and style when my hair is almost dry. I’m actually challenging myself to no heat usage until Christmas! I just want to see if it makes a difference or not because my hair was much thicker and healthier before I started blow drying after each wash.
  • I use the banding method to preserve my twist-outs.
  • I always try to sleep with a satin scarf or bonnet on…unless I sleep with my hair in a puff.

Products I use on a regular basis:

    You said you wait til your hair is almost dry to style. Do you let it dry in twists or just in its natural state before styling?
