NaturallyCurly: How long have you been natural?
Charmaine: All of my life!
When did you start embracing your curls?
Charmaine: I started embracing my curls about six years ago when I accidentally stumbled on natural hair videos on YouTube! I learned to appreciate my hair and how to treat it.
What's your daily hair routine?
Charmaine: I typically do a wash and go. I have fine and low density hair so I don’t have much luck with twist outs and braid outs. I generally stick with what works best for my hair type.
What's your nighttime hair routine?
Charmaine: Some nights I’m lazy and I just sleep with it out on a satin pillowcase. When I am really trying for second day curls, I will sleep with my hair in a loose pineapple. At least once a week, I will saturate my hair in a deep conditioner, cover it with a cap, and let it sit in my hair overnight. I do the same thing once a month with coconut oil.
