2. How long have you had your natural hair? Well, I grew my hair straight out of high school, started in 2016. But, I had to trim my hair because some salon lady relaxed it too much, so I trimmed it later that year and started in 2017. This year, it’ll be turning 3 years old. I’ve been caring for my hair since last year May. So 1year of good hair care yeyyy.
3. What is the most rewarding part of having natural hair? For me, my most rewarding part of having natural hair is the identity factor. Yeyyyy, Colour isn’t a factor of identity anymore, I believe hair is. Especially the 4C 💐❤
4. Have you found a regimen which works for you? If yes, what is your current regimen? Yes I have, I took a month of trying different staff before I actually got what worked for me. My hair regimen is fully dependent on the state of my hair. Since I travel often, when I’m in hot places I deep condition weekly, apply my Liquid/moisturizer, apply leave-in as I’m detangling and then my hair oil. That’s it. If I’m in a cool place like Kampala lately, I use my moisturizer, very minimal leave-in once in two days and oil, then I style. That’s it.
5. What hair products are you currently obsessed with? Oohhhh CANTU. ☺It loves my hair. Wow, I use the Cantu deep conditioner, Cantu leave-in, Cantu twist and loc gel, then the Sof’n Free moisturizer (it is so cheap because it’s made in Uganda and yet it works sooo well), a mix of black seed oil, Jamaican castor oil and coconut oil. Aunty Jackie’s coconut oil is cheap and smells so good. I just don’t like the fact that it drips 😭😭
6. Where do you get your products from? Oohhhh this question 😂💐 I shall tell the truth. So, there’s this shop at a basement around Gaza land. It sales all Cantu at wholesale price (which is half what’s in supermarkets really). That’s where I buy my stuff. Equipment for hair like my caps and heat bonnet, I do online.
Black seed oil, I get it from EnvirizaNacho
7. What is your go-to hairstyle with your natural hair? This depends on the occasion. Pineapple and up-do finger coils if I’m chilling or hanging out normally, then there’s a style, idk it’s name but it’s like pineapple, though the top parts are twisted inside. I do that when I’m going to offices. When someone randomly calls me in a rush, I do a simple puff.
My hair isn’t really long, so this are the styles I can handle now.
8. What is your go-to protective style? –
9. What did/do you find most challenging about your hair? Styling. That’s what’s most challenging. That’s why I wrote down styles for different occasions. I saw the problem and got the solution. I fixed it.
10. Hair advice you live by? Ghurrl, hair is like skin. There’s nothing like one size works for all. Yes, there are basic principles to live by, but customize them according to what works for your hair.
Own your hair, you can admire someone else’s but Own yours. Hair beauty isn’t in length only, it is in the quality of one’s hair
