So it’s that time of the week when i give you lovely photos from recent interviews with other NATURALISTAS
It’s time to droooool!
I’m so sorry this is coming late.. It was due for last Monday but I’ve been busy..
We have Nelly Emerald Johnson… She’s a friend I’ve known for a while
She’s cool…really cool.
How you doing?
Can you tell us about you?
My name is Nelly and I’m an Electrical /Electronics Engineering student of the University of Port-Harcourt
Wow! What made you embark on this natural hair journey? Why did you decide to ‘Return to your roots’?
Okay first of all, I wanted long healthy relaxed hair.
I started doing research on black hair, including watching youtube videos and i stumbled on the glamtwins. They both have healthy long 3b, 3c natural hair and I admired them. I planned to stretch my relaxer for 6 months, it didn’t even get to six months before I saw the beauty in my new growth of hair, so decided to transition instead.
That’s so touching.. So how long have you been natural?
Bravo! 11 months of transitioning? Thats a feat that even i couldn’t beat. smile emoticon Lol Ok.. Can you tell us about the hair? Her name? Hairtype? Porosity? Texture?
Jeez! That’s a lot to handle.. How do you handle all those curl patterns in one head? What’s your regimen like? Is it hard having to manage all these curl patterns?
The curl pattern isn’t all that matters, but the texture and porosity.
Just because of the fine texture, my hair loves protein. I never get protein overload, almost all my products got protein in them and that helps a lot.
My regimen is simple, I wash and deep condition weekly, after that, I do LCO or LCCO where L iis leave in, C is a cream moisturiser, C is a cream butter basically Shea butter and O is an oil, I skip Shea butter sometime hence the LCO.
I repeat the LCO at least thrice a week, I do it nightly though and then put my hair in cornrows.oh yeah, I also do hot oil treatments weekly. I leave my PS in for at most three weeks, I do mostly of updos and my hair loves it.
That’s encouraging.. What are your go to styles? Do youi wear protective styles?
Nah.. My hair strives better without protective styles.
I do mostly updos and puffs.
Are you more of a DIY person..or Product Junkie?
Tell us about what you use for your hair? Any staple products?
Oh I’m a product junkie but I try not to be, hehehe.My hair has loved every natural hair product I have ever used.
For shampooing, I use Creme of Nature Sulfate Free Shampoo, Miss Jessie’s Super Slip
Sudsy shampoo, Trader Joe’s Tea Tree tingle Shampoo
For DC, mostly Shea moisture products and ORS Replenishing Conditioner. Elasta QP Mango and Olive Curl Defining pudding, Curl Enhancing Smoothie by Shea moisture.
For oils, I use EVOO, EVCO, JBCO, vitamin E oil, etc. These are all I could think of ,lol
You ARE a full blooded product junkie.. Drinks to that! Lol…But Seriously..that’s a lot.
But its sure doing a great job on your mane. With all those products..how do you get through wash days?
Oh no, I don’t use more than 6 to 7 products oon wash days. It’s that easy.
Okay.. How do you deal with Shrinkage? Fight or Embrace?
I fight and embrace it. I cornrow my hair at night and when I take out the cornrow, my hair is a little bit stretched
