Serenity // 4A Natural Hair Style Icon

Avatar • Oct 25, 2012

*Prepared for BGLH by Meosha Tall of 1MeNaturally

Introduce yourself!
S:
My name is Serenity, and I am from the DMV area also known as DC, Maryland and Virginia. I was born in Alexandria, Virginia and live in Woodbridge.

Why did you make the decision to go natural?
S:
I have been natural for 3 years now. I went natural because I was tired of being burned by relaxers. I am a licensed hair stylist and I know how damaging relaxers can be. I was also looking for more versatility.

How would you describe your texture?
S:
My hair is a mixture of straight/wavy, spiraled and kinky. If I had to choose a particular category I would say 4a, fine, and very thick. My hair listens very well. When I twist it, it listens…When I straighten it (which is only twice a year) it straightens with no problem and stays straight until it gets wet.

Describe your styling regimen over the course of the month.
S:
My styling regimen is very basic. I swear by twist outs!!! We all have lazy days and my hair does not really care for wash and goes, but I will do a wash and go puff. My staples are Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter, Mimosa Hair Honey, and the Black Vanilla Leave-in Conditioner.

What does wash day look like for you?
S:
On wash days my routine is to wash and steam with my Huetiful Hair Steamer and then twist right after. The shampoo I use is either Mixed Chicks Shampoo and Conditioner or the Carol’s Daughter Monoi Shampoo and Conditioner. I have used Mixed Chicks since I went natural and I swear by their conditioner. It so far is the conditioner that my hair likes the best. I just decided to try the Monoi line by Carol’s Daughter and so far so good, however I feel as if the conditioner is not enough for me.

Describe your favorite go-to hairstyle for days when you don’t have a lot of time to style.
S:
My favorite go to style when I don’t have enough time to style is an old twist out, pony puff with flat twists in the front.

How do you combat shrinkage?
S:
Shrinkage. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don’t. It depends on what look I’m going for. Sometimes I like my twist outs to be tight and sometimes I want them to be stretched. Twists are my main go to to prevent my hair from looking like it’s only 3 inches long.

What are some of your problem areas (if any) that require special care and attention?
S:
The middle of my head is like a completely different continent!!!! It has no curl and it’s super kinky and dry. I do everything to that part of my hair slower and in smaller sections.

What are 2 do’s for your texture?
S:
2 do’s for my texture are moisturizing and twisting.

What are 2 don’ts for your texture?
S:
2 don’ts for my texture are 2nd day wash and goes and repeat nighttime pineapples. Lol My best bet is to pineapple the first night and then twist every night after that.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
S:
You can find me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/OhSerenityJones, Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/OhSerenityJones, and my Instagram: OhSerenityJones

Beautiful hair!

Lucky you that your hair listens to you. My hair is the rebellious three-year-old child that is stubborn and throws temper tantrum thru tangles and refuses curl definition and curlformers with a vengance!

But, I love her anyway 🙂
