NaturallyCurly: Please introduce yourself!

Reinilda Fernandez: Hola! My name is Reinilda Fernandez. I was born in the Dominican Republic and raised in NYC!

NC: How and when did you start embracing your curls?

RF: It started just about a year ago when I got tired of using relaxers on my hair. I had been relaxed since I was twelve years old and I didn't remember what my real hair looked like. I was curious! 

NC: What's your current routine?

RF: I wash my hair once a week usually with Tresemmé shampoo and conditioner because it really loosens my hair. Then I use a mixture of deep conditioners. I usually change it up so I'm not using the same conditioner back-to-back. Currently I'm using a Dominican conditioner called "10 in 1" and SheaMoisture Deep Treatment Masque.

NC: From start to finish, on a curly day, what's your process?

RF: First, I shampoo twice, then I turn on an episode of South Park (or any show really) and detangle with my fingers. This usually takes 45 minutes. I don't usually comb my hair since it's so thick and I have broken so many combs! After detangling, I squeeze the excess water out of my curls and smother my head with Shea Butter and Carrot Oil. I just let it air dry after that! At night I put it up in a pineapple and sleep on a silk pillowcase.
