Tell us a little about yourself & your daughter:
My name is Akisha and I am the mommy to a 2 year old diva. My darling daughter's name is Anisah. I believe she has a mixture of 4a and 4b. We are both naturals!
What is your daughter's hair care routine?
I wash and deep condition Anisah's hair weekly. As far as styling, Anisah's hair tend to frizz easily so we can not maintain styles for a long period of time. Usually when I braid her hair it lasts about 4 days, and with twists she can go about 3days before I have to re-twist. Keeping a headscarf on her head at night was a bit of a problem because my baby is a wild sleeper....she gets that from me, so right now she sleeps on a satin pillowcase and it seems to be working out well.
What kind of products do you use on her hair?
Currently we use Shea Moisture products. Her hair loves that stuff!!! I detangle with Kinky Kurly Knot Today and I use the Curls creme brule' and the lavish curls moisturizer. For Daily moisturizing I use a moisture mix of water and oils (usually Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Coconut Almond Oil,TeaTree Oil, or Castor Oil.....depending on what I have).
Have you ever used chemicals on her hair?
I have never used any chemicals on Anisah's hair and I don't have any plans to do so. I learned from the mistakes that I made with chemicals in my hair, so I would never put chemicals in her hair.
Can we see a few of your favorite styles?
Sure, I still have not completely mastered the art of hair styling but I make it work.
How did you learn to do all of this?
I learned from basically trial and error. Youtube and websites like BBB, have definitely been a blessing in my life!!!!
How does your daughter feel about her hair? Can we see her favorite style?
Anisah loves her hair!! She does not enjoy the process of getting her hair done but she loves the final product!!! All of her styles are her favorite styles right now, Im sure as she gets older she will have one that she prefers but for right now she just enjoys being the girly girl that has a hair-do!
If you had to share one hair care tip, what would it be?
Take the time to learn what your hair loves! Dont just assume that a certain product will work well on your hair based on someone else's hair. Educate yourself and be mindful of what your putting in your hair!
