Jeannine's Curly Hair Journey

Jeannine says "don't get discouraged if your curls aren't the same as your natural hair inspiration."

NaturallyCurly: Please introduce yourself!

Jeannine Brown: Hello, my name is Jeannine. I live in Somerset, NJ and I currently work from home in customer service for a health insurance company.

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

JB: I have been embracing my curls on and off throughout my life, but now my curls are here to stay! 

NC: What's your current routine?

JB: My routine changes depending on the season. In the warmer months, I wash my hair twice a week. I shampoo and DC my hair, and then I co-wash the second time in the week. In the colder months, I shampoo and DC. I love to try different products but my staples are the SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter line—I use the shampoo, the conditioner, and the deep treatment masqueFor a leave-in, I either use the Cantu Leave-In or the Alikay Naturals Lemongrass Leave-In. My preferred styler is the SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie

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

JB: I do not have a specific day that I wash my hair, but when I do wash it, I shampoo, apply the deep conditioner by sections (four) and when the conditioning is done, I detangle my hair. Sometimes I sit under a hooded dryer or under a conditioning cap for 15-25 minutes. As I rinse my hair, I finger detangle, apply leave-in by sections, detangle again and then either put in 4-6 braids or twists in each section.
