CN: What is your current routine?

Yvette: I wrote a long blog on my website all about my process, so I won't bore you guys by repeating all that here. Simply put, I used to wash my hair just about every day but I've heard that that isn't good for black hair. Now I'm down to two or three times a week. It all depends on the demands of my job, as well. Last year, on "Community," I wore a lot of wigs because I was worried about my curls looking the same from scene to scene in an episode . . . as natural girls know, curls have a mind of their own. But this year, I decided to wear my own hair on the show so I wash it more or less depending on whether the scene we're shooting that day has to match something we shot before. It's a delicate dance, but me and my AWESOME hairstylist on the show, Pauletta, work it out every day.

CN: How does your routine change when you're working?

Yvette: I sleep much more carefully when I'm working. Frizz is not a good thing on camera. But other than that, my routine remains the same.

CN: What are your must have products?!

Yvette: I still use all the products I mentioned in my website blog, but I've recently discovered some new favorites to add to the list. I'm in love with all the curl products by Curlz and Mixed Roots. I alternate using their curl souffles and whipped cream type products. They all smell divine and they hold your hair ALL DAY without being crunchy. Mixed chicks and Kinky Curly are still favs, as well. I've found that varying the products I use keeps my curls from getting used to any one thing. Alternating is the key.
