When Sarah changed her perspective about curly hair, it became an advantage instead of a challenge.
SO: On a working day my job requires that I tie back my hair in low bun so I don’t have to worry about 2nd nor 3rd hair day. Otherwise I just co-wash my hair with conditioner and repeat the routine above.
NC: What are your favorite hairstyles to wear?
SO: High buns definitely ! it’s so easy to make and very versatile. Messy for a beach day, very high for a sweaty work out at the gym or a clean version for a diner out. In warm countries such as here in Dubai, it’s very convenient as temperatures can reach the 110 degrees.
NC: What are your must-have products and tools?
SO: I could survive without all the products I have been using, but without a leave-in conditioner it would be very difficult!
NC: What about your hair stylist?
SO: As I travel often I’ve never had a fix hairdresser that I go all the time to. Actually I only go to hairdressers 2 or 3 times a year for trimming my hair or for a blow dry when I have a special event.
As I don’t do anything complicated to my hair I always try to look for school hairdresser in the city I am in, that’s my tip for girls on budget!
NC: What do you do at nighttime for your hair?
SO: I used to do the pineapple routine but I think my hair is too long for that now so I just sleep with a very high bun or braid it. My next purchase will be a satin pillow case to keep the hair frizz free.
NC: What reaction did you get when you first decided to go natural?
SO: Only positive! Most of the people like my hair curly rather than straight. They think it suits my personality and my mixed origins better. So my change was very well accepted and encouraged. It’s great to receive compliments because every time I am thinking of going back to straight I try to remember all the positive comments I received.
