Introduce yourself!
S:
My name is Sasha. I am from New York, but I currently live in Florida.

Why did you make the decision to go natural?
S:
I’ve been natural now for about two and a half years. I went natural, because relaxed hair was boring to me and I wanted my hair to be curly.

How would you describe your texture?
S:
I have extremely thick hair. My hair is 3c in the front, 4a in the middle, and 4b in the back.

Describe your styling regimen over the course of the month.
S:
I usually twist or braid my hair at night while it is wet; then I take it out in the morning. Wearing my hair down is the easiest style because my hair is a lot to grip. The products I use are: shea butter, coconut oil, and Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner. I haven’t found a regular conditioner that I’m really stuck on. I’ve tried basically everything, but my current conditioner is by Sukin.

What does wash day look like for you?
S:
I normally shampoo my hair once a week. I co-wash, then I’ll braid my hair and call it a night.

Describe your favorite go-to hairstyle for days when you don’t have a lot of time to style.
S:
If I don’t have too much time I’ll refresh my old curls, or I’ll use only bobby pins and create a large bun.

How do you combat shrinkage?
S:
I don’t have a noticeable shrinkage problem.

What are some of your problem areas (if any) that require special care and attention?
S:
The back section of my hair is my driest, so I tend to use more oil and shea butter there.

What are 2 do’s for your texture?
S:
Lots of moisture, and just when you think it’s enough…add more.

What are 2 don’ts for your texture?
S:
The pineapple. The best way to preserve my curls is to use a satin pillowcase.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
S:
Yes, check out my Tumblr: www.sashisuwoo.tumblr.com.

You are so pretty and you have a very fresh face without makeup. You have nice, thick, and fluffy hair.

Maybe because she has found what works for her and stuck with it(?)I’m guessing. But i love how very simple her regimen is. And she has absolutely gorgeous hair and shes lovely too

I think this is a good interview! She is straight and to the point. It doesn’t always take 1000 words to break a thing down.

At first, I too was thinking, “Wow, that was short!”
But honestly, she answered all the questions and if I keep it real, her answers were pretty much the same as what mine would be… I mean, if the hair is dry…put more shea on it. BOOM.

I actually wish more of the icon interview answers were a little more straight to the point and direct sometimes

Gorgeous hair and beautiful woman. You seem to be a woman of few words, however your answers were concise but still quite informative and helpful. Lovely interview.

OMG…stop hatin, everyone! MAYBE she has a life outside of her hair. Succinct and to the point is always better than long-winded and drawn out, IMO at least. Sasha, you’re gorgeous.

Its not hate ITS MY OPINION…maybe they could have interviewed someone who wanted to talk! EVERYONE has “life outside of her hair” BUT this is a website DISCUSSING HAIR!!

I agree. I’m not hating either. She’s pretty with nice hair. No one is denying that. It’s just that there have been other naturals with simple regimens but they still explain why they do this as oppose to that, the errors they made. The whole point of these interviews (IMO) is to help others find regimens or make improvements with their hair care practices. How can one benefit from something that is meant to be helpful when there is no detail?

I think we are all just used to some of the hair icon write ups to be a little more “personal” maybe? Sprikled with a little story of the dye job from hell or some fancy recipe for whipped shea butter spread, etc. etc… That tends to make them longer and more like full features. While I enjoy the charismatic gals who could write a book about their “hair journey” and the trials of being a “product junkie”, I liked this one as well! Sasha’s routine and products are more in line with my reality so this was a nice… Read more »

IMO most of the responses of the Style Icons profiled are too long winded, so I tend to skip most of the answers as it goes into too much detail. I read all of her answers because they were to the point.

like the diversity of our hair that we love and make us come to this page, the diversity of expression of ourselves represent us as well. Beautiful young lady.

You guys act like her responses were, “Twist outs are awesome, and I love kitties!” She gave you products, her go-to-last-minute style, and her problem areas and what she does for those areas. What more do you want? Hell, there’s three new style icons up BGLH at least every week anyway, and plenty of icons to reference from the archives. So, if your motive truly is to develop a regimen from these interviews, you shouldn’t be tripping over the length of one. Besides, some of you have already stated that you think her hair is dry, so why the hell… Read more »

I also don’t think Tina Smith meant her hair is dry but rather her interview was dry (i.e. boring). Just because people don’t like something doesn’t mean they are a “hater”. No one has personally attacked her. This is a forum where everyone should be allowed to express their likes/dislikes without being attacked. We are adults so please let’s act like adults.

Girl you do not need to explain why you answered the way you answered… when they get the chance to become a style icon they can answer they questions as long as they want.

Nice. You know, reading the comments, I kinda agree with everybody. A beautiful girl of few words, but she cares for herself and her hair well, and it shows. The pics tell you more, but simple routines are cool. 🙂

I don’t think I would ever do an interview on these sites. You women are SOOO quick to bash another woman for the smallest thing. Its like WTF are we doing this natural hair revolution thing if its only going to divide us more? Willie Lynch in full effect 2013.

Exactly what I was thinking.. it’s so sad how some women nit-pick at little things that don’t matter. Her answers we sufficient, and instead of discussing hair, commenters are discussing the brevity of the interview smh!

On another note, I hope my hair is this length at 2.5 years.. Her twist outs are beautiful!!!
