L: My name is Quisha Livingston, and I’m from Fort Worth, Texas.
Why did you make the decision to go natural?
L: My mother had been pressuring me to go natural for years, but after watching the coke scene in the movie “Good Hair” I knew it was time to make that transition. I’ve been natural for three years and four months.
How would you describe your texture?
L: My hair texture is predominantly 3c/4a. It is very thick and coarse. I have to use more product in the front of my hair than anywhere else.
Describe your styling regimen over the course of the month.
L: My styling regimen over the course of the month has been very easy because of my insane workouts (Insanity). I’ve been wearing my hair in a wash n go or rocking a bun. The products that I use are Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, Curling Souffle, and Eco Styler Argan Oil Gel.
What does wash day look like for you?
L: Wash days are not my favorite. After I get over the fact that I am going to be in the shower for 45 minutes, I part my hair in four sections, wash each section at a time with Tresemme Naturals Shampoo then use Tresemme Naturals Conditioner.
Describe your favorite go-to hairstyle for days when you don’t have a lot of time to style.
L: My favorite go to hair styles are either a high bun, or I’ll just let my hair go free and wrap a scarf around it.
How do you combat shrinkage?
L: To be honest shrinkage doesn’t bother me, but I do like my braid outs and twist outs stretched so I do them on a blow out.
What are some of your problem areas (if any) that require special care and attention?
L: My problem area is my scalp. During the winter time I have to use more oils than I do any other season.
What are 2 do’s for your texture?
L: Two do’s for my hair texture are using a deep conditioner with protein and it is a must to keep my ends trimmed.
What are 2 don’ts for your texture?
L: The only don’t I have is to never neglect your hair. Other than that I do as I please. 🙂
