Meet Suzanne Schroeder, our 3A Texture Perspective writer.
NC: What’s the BEST advice you ever got about your curly hair?
SS: Learn how to take good care of your hair. A million thanks to all the great women on the NaturallCurly boards. I have gained so much knowledge from them.
NC: What are some of your go to’s — styles, methods, tools, etc?
SS: Satin pillowcases, Curls Like Us Cloths, deep conditioners, leave-in conditioners, mousses, ACV rinses and my diffuser. Those are the basics that the my curls have grown to love. I have also happily given up the struggle to get second day hair. After many failed attempts and sad hair days, I have learned the value of co-washing. I spend less time co-washing and styling than I did struggling to attain second day hair.
NC: Tell us about YOU — what makes you unique?
SS: Right now in my life, juggling is the name of the game. I am busy with my two sons who play sports all the time. I have managed to learn most of the rules of baseball and basketball. Lacrosse and football are still a mystery. I have never been a sports fan, but having two boys has taken me into that world. So as I am trying to pay attention to a really long baseball game, I am still able to scan the crowd for inspirational hair and ask questions about products and techniques. I am always trying to merge the world of curls with my life as a mother of two boys.
NC: What are you favorite things? What are you passionate about? Nail polish? Fashion? Shoes? Books?
SS: I love to paint and create art. Going to museums and galleries thrills me to the core, and I am continually inspired by what other artists have done. When I don’t have time to do these things, I find inspiration from fashion, especially shoes.
NC: What do you do for fun?
SS: Most of my time is spent with my two boys, my boyfriend and my cute dogs and cat. Going to parks, riding bikes and spending time on the sidelines of a sporting event are what most of my weekends are filled with. When it’s “me” time, I read, paint, garden or go for walks around the lake.
NC: What’s going on in your life right now? Moving, relationship, etc?
SS: I just finished painting a wall below the counter in my kitchen, bought a great new pair of shoes and my tomatoes are turning red. Next week we are taking the boys to New York City for the first time. Not sure if I am bringing the shoes. It will be a tough packing session deciding between hair products and shoes space.
NC: What is your NaturallyCurly.com username?
Look out for next month’s Texture Perspective discussion on straightening!
