NaturallyCurly: Please introduce yourself!

Cassidy Blackwell: Hey Hey!  My name is Cassidy and I am a P-R-O-U-D naturalista!  I'm also  the Marketing & PR Associate/Global Editor of TextureMedia.

NC: How and when did you start embracing your curls or have you always enjoyed/embraced your curls?

CB: It's been about 2 years for me since I really started loving my teeny-weeny coils (named Lola).  It was truly love at first sight- I haven't looked back since!

NC: What is your current routine/regimen?

CB: I rarely stray from wash'n'gos and I like to my routine very very simple.  I wash and style my hair about every 2-3 days and make sure to sleep every single night with a sleep cap.

NC: So from start to finish, on a curly day, what’s your process?

CB: I will cleanse with a gentle shampoo or a cleansing creme then condition with a moisture rich conditioner.  If needed, I'll detangle with the Ouidad Double Detangler (with the conditioner in!).  Then I'll follow with some sort of styling product.  I've been really into products that act as a leave-in and styler all in one bottle.  As I said, I like to keep it simple and the more I can cut down to just a single product, the better for me!  Then I SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE my hair to fluff and set my coils and VOILA I'm done!
