Q: How long have you been natural/transitioning?
A: I was natural for 5-6 years but once i moved back to my native country I had to perm because my hair would do nothing. I permed my hair 6mths later and had breakage at my nape. After that i said "No more of this crap,no matter what i will not perm again!" I haven't permed since June 2010 and plan to be a long term transitioner :-)
Q: How do you retain length?
A: I protect my ends! I make sure to moisturize and seal daily, i wear protective styles like buns, sew ins, and my favorite half wigs.
Q: How often do you wash your hair?
A: Well, I shampoo my hair twice a month and co-wash every 4 days or so. When the weather is warm i tend to co- wash daily or every other day.
Q: What are some of your staple products?
A: Coconut oil, Olive oil, Kinky Curly Knot Today, Giovanni products, Aussie conditioner, Eco Styler Gel are all products i will ALWAYS have on hand!
Q:How do you describe you style?
A: Well, I guess i would say its super "girly", I'd rather be in a dress than jeans. I feel pretty and comfy when I am in a dress. My style is changing. right now as I venture into more vintage than modern clothing
Q: What are some of your favorite websites to shop on?
A: Definitely my ultimate fav is LuLus.com, i used to be a gojane.com girl but i'm in my 30s now and find that the clothing there is just to Kiddish for me now. I look for pieces that are more timeless than "in-at-the-moment" and LuLus.com fits that criteria for me. Also modcloth.com, they have some of the same clothes as lulus.com :-)
Q: What are your favorite fashion magazines?
A: Well, my favorite magazine is Latina,to be honest i don't really keep up with the runway....whats in stuff so i don't have a need for the fashion mags i've been subscribed to Latina magazine for 7 years now and i love it! They have the cutest articles and i can always relate to the stories in there.
Q:What are your favorite foods?
A: Well i loooove to cook and create dishes and drinks, I guess my fav food would have to be rice! As a latina i can't live without it! lol
Q:Any favorite recipes?
A: Oh yeah, my all time fav is "Jerk Chicken Pasta"! A friend made it and i never got the recipe from her so i improvised,grabbed a few things and came up with my own version that has all my fam&friends going CRAZY! lol (recipe coming soon)
Anymore questions feel free to ask! :-)
