1.) Your name and little one's name/nickname?
My name is Shakirah, and my daughter's name is Starr.
2.) What's your child's haircare routine?
We made a decision 8 mos ago to become natural! This decision was based on a more healthy lifestyle for my daughter's hair. We will never go back to perms. Lately, we have been doing protective styles using natural products. We have a routine of washing/deep condition. Then we braid it back up!
3.) What products are you currently using?
I keep it moisturized with olive oil, coconut oil, and we use eco styler gel for her edges. We use Kinky Curly products, but lately I have my eye on Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo used For: Repairing, Strengthening, Hair Re-growth. Just because it can be used on all hair types, and have that retention that she need.
4.) Do you use (or will or will not use) heat/chemicals on the child's hair?
We do not use any type of heat, and I band her hair.
5.) Do you use heat/chemicals on your hair?
As of now, I am not using any perms in my hair either.
6.) What was the worst hair tip you have received?
The worst advice I ever received about my daughter's hair was that, I was going to have to cut it all off for her to be natural, I did not do that! Her hair is growing well. I just keep a good watch on her ends. I keep them sealed with coconut oil.
7.) Do you cut/trim the hair? if so how often?
I do trim, but not very often, because the coconut oil has done it's job.
8.) What is some hair advice you would like to share?
The best advice I can give anyone is, if you or your daughter edges ever come out, Castor oil grows it back fast. I forgot to include, we keep her hair oiled with Olive oil, a great help. Kandyland Kurls/BBB, has become our family.
-Shakirah, you are doing a marvelous job transitioning her hair to natural! Your story is truly inspiring, and of course Starr is just a .... Little star!!! She is beautiful! Keep up the great job!
