The natural hair movement!

5 Jan

What advice would you give to people who might be afraid to show their true fashion sense or natural hair for fear of being judged by others?

“I’d encourage them and stress that they are the MOST beautiful when they are their authentic, organic selves. You were created by The ULTIMATE Designer, so that means you were already a masterpiece before you ever entered Earth’s realm. BE YOU…ALL THE WAY!” -Ebony

Tell us your name and where you are from?

My name is Ebony, and you can find me in Norcross, GA.

How long have you been natural?

I’ve been on this journey since February 2005.

Describe your hair:

I have a LOT of fine strands on my head. Porosity is normal, so it’s easy to retain moisture. The longer it gets the easier it is to get tangled, so protective styles are a must for me now more than ever!

What is your hair regimen?

I shampoo my hair every two-three weeks, and I co-wash once a week.

What are the three biggest factors you attribute to your length?

1. Moisture

2. Low Manipulation

3. Time/Patience

What is your usual go to style?

Two strand twists all day!

What is your nighttime routine?

If it’s already twisted, I just moisturize and seal my ends and put on my satin scarf.  If I’m wearing a twist out, I moisturize and seal my ends and add about 8 jumbo twists. I put on my satin scarf and it’s a wrap. No pun intended. 

Your top three favorite products and why?

They vary from time to time, but right now—Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa Conditioner: It’s ultra-moisturizing and it’s economical. Coconut oil: It is excellent for moisture as well. Pre-treating with it prior to shampooing controls the amount of moisture that you lose during the cleansing process. Giovanni Direct Leave-In: It’s an awesome leave-in that’s lightweight and highly effective.

Your best hair advice?

LOVE every strand that grows out of your head. Learn what works best, and take care of it as you would your body and spirit.
