Hey pals! Okay so…I don’t have my computer to make videos, but I wanted to answer some easy FAQs that are on my YouTube channel.
Q1. How are you rocking your hair in your vids the week of June 13th. Twist out, braid outs, wash and go? How long have you been natural?
A1: Wash and go, like always! I have been natural for a year and a half.
Q2: How did you style your hair when it was in the in-between stage? (4-7 inches long)
A2: Wash and go! I didn’t like my hair in any other style, like twist outs or braids outs until it was a little longer. I tried a twist out on my hair when it was like four inches and I HATED it with a fiery passion.
Q3: I live in avg dew points of low 70’s on any given day of the year (Central America). I would like to know if that also affects my usage of glycerine in my shampoos and conditioners.i.e DevaCare No Poo and One Conditioner.
A3: I personally never had an issue using glycerin in rinse out products even in higher dew points. Glycerin is usually awesome to use in the shower too because of the steam and the extra moisture you get. Have you ever used a condish super high in glycerin, and let it sit for a few minutes in the shower? Even if the slip isn’t too great going on (like with Hairveda Moist), it feels like butter rinsing out!
Q4: Hair twin!!! How do I protect my hair while swimming???
A4: Well, my short answer for this is…don’t swim. Lol. I’m half kidding…but yea, last time I swam, my hair was NOT into it, so I’m more of a lounger and save my workout regimen for land. If my hair gets wet, I won’t die, but you won’t see me at the pool or beach dunking my hair under water. But a couple of tips for swimming are as follows – douse your hair in conditioner beforehand, and if you’re not opposed to it, use a product with silicones or mineral oil in order to form a barrier between your hair and the chlorine water. Also, if possible, try to not wear your hair out, as that will equal tangle city. Now that my hair is longer, I may not be opposed to swimming again since I can put my hair in a bun (the tangles after were my main issue). Some companies also make products specifically for after swim care to remove chlorine from the hair (I believe Aubrey Organics makes some), so check those out.
When I’m back on the Tube, I’ll answer the other questions. Or maybe I’ll be super bootleg and use my phone.
