NaturallyCurly: Please introduce yourself!
Savannah Rae: Hi! My name is Savannah and I go to school in beautiful Santa Barbara, California.
NC: How and when did you start embracing your curls?
SR: I’ve never used any relaxers, keratin treatments, etc. on my curls growing up, but it would be a stretch to say I “enjoyed” my curls in middle school or high school. It wasn’t really until my senior year in high school and my first year in college that I started embracing my texture and everything it has to offer.
NC: What is your current routine?
SR: My routine is basically to wash my hair every two days. I can usually get away with second day curly hair and then on the third day I typically throw my curls up in a protective style. Right now, for example, I’m rocking a bun on my third day.
NC: So from start to finish, on a curly day, what’s your process?
SR: In the shower, I put a little bit of conditioner on my ends and comb out my hair with a wide tooth comb. After my hair is detangled, I use Jason Normalizing Tea Tree Shampoo and give my scalp a good massage all over. I rinse that out and work a very generous amount of Tresemmé 24 Hour Body Conditioner into my hair. When I step out of the shower, I use a little bit of Kinky-Curly Curling Custard (my Holy Grail product”> as a sealant and then I don’t touch my curls! Most of the time I let them air dry, but sometimes I will use my mom’s diffuser.
