S: Hi my name is Sharrone and I am from Massachusetts! I am currently a junior in college! I love to have fun and do fun things! WHOOT!
Why did you make the decision to go natural?
S: I was on YouTube and saw a woman that was African American and had really long hair so I decided to go natural to see if I could achieve that length as well! I went natural and stopped pressing my hair in 12th grade and have been natural ever since. I cut the straight ends off during the 12th grade through my freshman year of college.
How would you describe your texture?
S: Probably 3a to 4b. The front of my hair, right above my forehead, is very loose and wavy. The sides of my hair are my 4b areas, the tightest part of my hair. Then the bottom back of my hair above my neck are 3c curls. Similar to the front, but more defined. The rest of my hair is 4a. It could all be off though because it depends on what system you go by and really what you think! Pictures will help you see it though!
Describe your styling regimen over the course of the month.
S: I love me some wash and gos and buns lol! That’s mainly what I do. I do braid outs and twist outs or any other cool style I see occasionally, but I mainly stick to wash and gos or buns. Lately I have been trying more styles and I LOVE IT! I don’t refresh my wash and go, I just start over when it hits probably around the fifth day or some of my looser curls in the front or back stretch a lot and become straight due to when I pineapple at night. I use normal conditioners as leave-ins because they moisturize my hair so well. Then I apply oil and I love argan oil, so it’s mainly the one I use. Sometimes depending on the style I use gel. I use Amp Pro or Krystal from Eco Styler. I do use Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie for the braid outs and all the other products I have I try and add in randomly.
What does wash day look like for you?
S: Wash day I condition mainly with Tresemme conditioner and when in the shower I part my hair and detangle each side. Sometimes after I detangle I’ll put a deep conditioner (Aussie 3 Minute Miracle) and have it sit while I bathe then rinse it out with cold water. I shampoo probably once a month or when my hair feels weighed down.
Describe your favorite go-to hairstyle for days when you don’t have a lot of time to style.
S: Wash and go, low or high bun, or a hat with a low bun.
How do you combat shrinkage?
S: I put my hair in a bun and then do the banding method and wait for it to dry, or I do a low bun and wait for it to dry.
What are some of your problem areas (if any) that require special care and attention?
S: My crown, so I really have to add extra product to it. I do neglect it sometimes oops!
What are 2 do’s for your texture?
S: Thick conditioner yummmm and detangling well!
What are 2 don’ts for your texture?
S: Light products…my hair would be DRY! And not deep conditioning it.
