Introduce yourself!
P:
My name is Porsche. I live in LA, but I rep NYC all day! I’m an Actress, Comedian and Model.

Why did you make the decision to go natural?
P:
I just got sick of going to the salon to get my hair done. I had wanted to transition for a long time. Mostly, for less maintenance.

When and how did you transition into natural hair?
P:
I just stopped getting a relaxer one day. That followed with cutting off more and more with each visit to the salon. Until one day, my step mother got sick of me complaining about my half and half hair and sat me down in my living room and took it all off.

In what ways (if any) has going natural affected you?
P:
It gave me more of a distinct look. It was more fun!

How would you describe your hair?
P:
My hair is actually very fine, but there’s a lot of it. I have super zig zaggy curls and lots and lots of body.

What is your regimen?
P:
I wash and blow. I’ll let it air dry for a few minutes, but then I’ll blow-dry it without any of the attachment pieces, upside down and sideways in every direction making it bigger. I also tease it constantly throughout the day. Play with it all day.

I love all of the Garnier curly products including their leave-in. I also love the Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner. And I try to do an Olive Oil Replenish Pak deep condition every week. I’ll leave it in for hours in a bun while I run errands before I wash it out.

What mistakes have you made with your hair that you’ve learned from?
P:
Oh man. I bleached it once when I was in high school. After chopping it all off, all in the same day!!! It was like an orange gold color and the cut wasn’t great either. I learned then to do my research; to find stylists that knew my hair and how to style it in ways that are flattering to me.

What’s the best/most effective thing you do for your hair?
P:
Trims are so so important for hair growth. Also, I know I wash way too often, but when I’m really being a good girl, I’ll only allow myself to wash it 3 times a week. Or if I have to wash it more, skip combing it here and there.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
P:
www.porschethomas.com

Anything else you want to add?

Hey Bglh team, I was just wondering if you guys ever get submissions from natural men. These ladies are gorgeous but as a guy, I find their regimens to be intimidating. You know guys. We wake up, wash and go. That’s about it. I have tried following some regimens but I just can’t do it. I can’t blow dry constantly and do a head wrap and all that stuff. I’m sure you guys understand. It’s just harder for men to get into certain types of regimens. It would be cool if natural men submitted. I’ve been growing my hair for about… Read more »

Well we would love to hear from you on here,it would be cool to see a guys side of view for what works for his hair. But if not Curlynikki has started doing interviews with natural guys on her site.

Hey Zyaran,
I would love to do a submission but I don’t particularly consider myself a natural hair expert.In fact, I know absolutely nothing on the subject. I just shampoo my hair a few times per week and that’s it. As I said, these ladies are all gorgeous and have beautiful hair but it is hard for guys like me to follow their regimen. I will definitely check out curlynikki. Thanks!!

Love your style! In my salon we have a few stylists that specialize in curly haircuts — Deva Cure specialists! It is amazing how a proper cut can help a curly head of hair!
