I co wash and do deep conditioning weekly when my hair is out. I shampoo at least 1-2 times a month.
I do my protein treatment once a month. Protective styling is a big part of my regimen. When I am wearing my two strands I moisturize every 2-3 days spraying the ends with water and sealing with oil or shea butter. I try to keep them in for 2-3 weeks.

I sing about anything that I’ve heard, saw, experienced. I sing about things that make you feel something, empowered, happy, sad.
If you could sum it all up for new naturals what advice would you give them?
I would say learn your own hair. There are so many different women out there with so many different types of hair. You have to really figure out what your hair likes and doesn’t like to have a successful journey. Also, do what makes you feel good!…some may like it, some may love, it and some may absolutely hate it!
