NaturallyCurly: Please introduce yourself!
Chamallie Forrest: My name is Chamallie and I am a wife, a mommy to three little ones, and a beauty vlogger.
NC: How and when did you start embracing your curls?
CF: I have always embraced and loved my curly hair!
NC: What is your current routine?
CF: I keep it simple because I don't like to abuse my hair with products as I've done in the past. I shampoo, condition and deep condition. I cowash twice a week and the rest of the time it's shampoo and conditioner with a deep conditioning treatment once a week.
NC: So from start to finish, on a curly day, what's your process?
CF: I shampoo and then apply my conditioner and brush it through. I do not use a wide tooth comb like most curly girls, as I find that it does not get every single hair. I use a large nylon bristle brush to distribute the conditioner, clip my hair up for the remainder of my shower, and finally rinse. I do not dry with a towel. I apply a dime sized amount of the conditioner I've just used in the shower as a leave-in and brush through my hair once again. I then part my hair with a comb, rake my fingers through to separate the curls and scrunch with a soft cotton t-shirt until my hair is no longer dripping. I always air dry.
