Her Favorite Products

I don’t even know what I use, I just change all the time. I always use some sort of moisturizing leave-in conditioner while my hair is wet to lock in the curls. It's so cool—when I wet my hair, I get itty bitty little curls, like baby curls. Then I apply any leave-in conditioner, and either put the diffuser to it, or walk out the door and let it dry naturally. Very simple. I'm not one for spending a lot of time, and I don't braid or twist my hair. Any curl you see is just my hair. A lot of people don’t understand that you can actually do that —that you can put something moisturizing in your hair to hold on to your curls.

I've heard from many hairdressers that it's healthy to change your products now and again. And I do just that. But I find myself coming back to Miss Jessie's and Aveda. I love Aveda. They have a great styling creme which is nice for definition and hold. When I'm in a good hair cycle, I do my best to nurture my hair regularly and do lots of conditioning treatments. That's pretty rare, though!

Her Hair Regimen

When I’m in a full blown promotion tour, I wash my hair every 3-4 days to keep the curls fresh. But other than that, like when I'm home or on holiday, I don't wash it often—maybe once a week, if that. For me, washing as often as every 3 days wears my hair down and leaves me with split ends. Sometimes it's best when I just leave it alone.

Sleeping With Her Hair

I don’t worry about it. I know, I’m awful. I try to sleep in bonnets and scarves, but when I wake up the next morning, it's on the other side of the room. They drive me crazy, and in my sleep, I somehow yank them off and throw them across the room. I like the idea of a silk head wrap, and when I'm being good, I'll use one with great results.

On Being Curly

The versatility. I think it's nice that we can go back and forth. It’s kind of hard to create the curly look if you don’t have curls, but those of us with curly hair can easily wear it straight, and then rock curls the next day. That versatility is priceless! I go back and forth with my look. Last year I wore it straight a lot, and also bunned quite a bit. Curly hair is beautiful, and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Wow. Her hair is gorgeous. Yes I finally found out how to keep my curls defined (wet hair, coconut oil and olive oil eco styler gel) so I know what she is talking about! Beautiful and so inspiring! :)
