Current Routine:

When I wear my hair in a puff I wash once weekly with cream of nature soothing shampoo and  nourishing conditioner. I co-poo every two to three days in between washes. I also use motions leave in conditioner and Sta-Sof-Fro after washing to make my hair softer and easier to comb. Once I complete styling and finish off with Natural Sheen Comb Ease & Oil  Sheen Spray for shine
Big Chop Process: "First cut, almost all natural"

What state are you representing?

Louisiana
 

Big Chop Process: "Just my bang has permed ends"

What’s the natural scene like in your area?

There are a lot of naturals in the area, although there aren’t many salons that specialize in natural hair. I wish there were more events catered toward naturals in the area. 

Additional comments regarding your natural hair:

I love my hair, I am so happy that I made the decision to stop using the “creamy crack”. It started off hard, but I am glad that I continued on my journey to being natural.
Big Chop Process: "Finally no more perm!"
