Kami’s hair Story

She has this beautiful curly head of hair you can’t ignore. Here’s the interview.

Hi, can we meet you?

Helo! My name is Kami, and I live in Washington, DC in the U.S.

What was growing up like?

Growing up, I wore my natural hair until I was 10. I remember my mom would keep my hair in braids and twists, and for special occasions, she would press my hair straight.

When I got to middle school, I got my hair relaxed,and continued to relax it until I was 20. My mom always took great care of my hair, even when it was relaxed. So growing up, I did the same. I would wash it weekly, blow dry, and wear it down or in a bun.

Where you natural through out Primary school?

No, I didn’t go natural until I was 20.

When did you return natural? And why ?

I returned natural on July 15, 2009. I big chopped with virtually no transition. I returned natural because relaxers were destroying my scalp. They caused my scalp to become really dry and itchy, and I would get sores
that would take forever to heal.

Whats your hair regimen like?

On Monday, I wash my hair with Kinky Curly Come Clean, and follow up with Giovanni conditioner. Most of the time, I will do two strand twist moisturizing with Giovanni Direct Leave-In, and seal with a mix of grape seed and coconut oil. I leave my hair in a low bun until about Wednesday/
Thursday when I co-wash with Herbal Essence Cleansing Conditioner.

I moisturize again with Giovanni Direct Leave-In, seal with my oil mix, and set my hair with curlformers. During the weekend, I like to wear my hair out styling it with two strand twists, braid outs, sponge rollersets, and bantu knot outs.

For wash n gos, I co-wash with Herbal Essence Cleansing Conditioner, then apply aloe vera juice to my hair, and follow up with Kinky Curly Curling Custard.

Any regrets for going natural?

Nope, it is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

And any other info you want to give us.

I would recommend to other naturals, or those thinking about natural, love your hair as it is. It’s ok to have a hair crush, but don’t idolize anyone else’s hair or texture. And when you love your hair, it’s so much easier to take care of.
