Introduce yourself!
R:
My Name is Rewina Beshue and I am from San Francisco, CA.

Why did you make the decision to go natural?
R:
Well to make this question simple, I’ve been natural all my life, with occasional soft presses here and there.

How would you describe your texture?
R:
I’ve never really been able to put my finger on my exact hair texture. I would say that it is somewhere in between 3b and 3c (leaning more towards 3c). My hair behavior is extremely bipolar. Some days when I wear a twist out, it sits well and proper on my head, but other days it turns into its own creation. It mostly depends on the weather. My hair isn’t exactly fine, but it isn’t course either. My curls become less defined the drier they get, but can also keep their pattern when braided or twisted. My hair is also dense.

Describe your styling regimen over the course of the month.
R:
When it comes to styling I like to keep it simple. I often times use the twist out or bantu knot method after I wash my hair. I wash my hair about 2 times a week (wearing the styles in between those days). I always apply oils to my hair before every wash (coconut oil, olive oil, or flaxseed oil are my favorites). I keep the oils in my hair for about an hour (letting it condition my roots and ends) then wash it out. I like to use Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo and Conditioner.

I’m still in search of other products, but I feel like this brand definitely keeps my hair from drying out. It definitely helps my texture. Sometimes I use a hair masque after I shampoo and condition (also by Shea Moisture). Depending on the day, sometimes I twist my hair in the shower under the running water (the smoothness of the water helps me detangle and twist my hair more easily), and other times I twist or braid my hair after the shower (when my hair is slightly drier and with oils applied). I like to wash my hair at night. That way when I wake up it is 100% dry and I’m ready to leave the house.

What does wash day look like for you?
R:
My wash days are very time consuming. I like to have an entire day of hair care, but if I can’t have a whole day, I like to care for my hair during the night.

Describe your favorite go-to hairstyle for days when you don’t have a lot of time to style.
R:
When I have no time and I need a go-to hairstyle, bantu knots are the best! I take two pieces of my hair from a small section and apply oil, or Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream. I twist it all the way down then I coil it into a tight bantu knot. I always want my knots to be fully dried before I take them out so to speed up the drying process I use cool air from a blow drier and focus it on my knots. It’s a quick and simple go to style.

What are some of your problem areas (if any) that require special care and attention?
R:
My ends are definitely thinner then my roots, so I always feel the need to pay extra attention to them.

What are 2 do’s for your texture?
R:
Two do’s for my texture are styling and various oils.

What are 2 don’ts for your texture?
R:
Two don’ts for my texture are coloring and wash n go’s. My texture doesn’t react well to hair coloring and wash n go styles don’t work because my hair is extremely sensitive to weather, so it needs a process of detangling and styling for it to sit right.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
R:
I will be coming out with projects and a website in the future, but for now you can find me on my Instagram: RGB_
