HELLO DARLING INTRODUCE YOURSELF.

My name is Cristiane, I am an artist, work in advertising, brazilian and proudly black.. I love to draw and dance, a Beyoncé fan, love pets and watching kinky hair tutorials.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A FIERCE NATURAL GIRL AND WHAT MADE YOU DO THIS CHOICE?

Is exactly 2 years since I went natural, the choice was not in purpose… I simply got tired of straightening because I felt really bad during the whole process. The smell, the time consuming procedure and the wounds on my scalp. So I gradually started to avoid it unconsciously and consequently started to assume my natural hair without noticing.

HAVE YOU EVER CUT YOUR HAIR SUPER SHORT OR DID YOU EVER TRANSITION AND HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THAT?

I never cut my hair super short, I transitioned cutting bit by bit. When the roots started to grow out  I would load my hair with hair cream and would bun it. The straight ends would cause a weird effect on my pony tail which made me cut my hair randomly and without notion. My cousin helped me cut my ends definitely and freed my curls for the first time. In the beginning I was apprehensive and a bit scared of how people would react, specially my close relatives (mom and dad) but they were happy with my choice and that calmed me down I didn’t care about other people opinions though.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR HAIR TEXTURE?

Kinky curly, I believe I am a 4b/4c which is a tight curl pattern.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR HAIR COLOUR, HOW DO YOU ACHIEVE IT AND HAS IT AFFECTED YOUR HAIR NEGATIVELY?

I never colored my hair yet. I always opted for its natural color in my case dark brown. I confess I wished for hair color, but my hair is sensitive and fine therefore I decided to not use any kind of chemicals on it again.

WHICH PRODUCTS DO YOU USE TO WASH AND STYLE YOUR HAIR?

As for shampoo and conditioner I usually try to use the brand Elsève (without salt) for fine and weakened kinky hair. I am more selective and specific on the choice of my deep conditionerI love the product line Novex (super moisture, cocoa butter, olive oil, deep treatment, etc),I also love the product line Oikos (moisturizing mask – hair nutrition and moisture). I also love to use homemade products I whip myself and hair vitamins. I always detangle my hair when wet from the ends to roots when is loaded with deep conditioner. I love combing creams and recommend Nutrire from Novex (my curls) and Seda for curly hair. I uso a range of different oils because my hair is always dry.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE HAIRSTYLES?

I like to use it out with accessories.When I tie it I like it high and sideways, high pony tails, braids ribbons and scarves. I started to use turbans too.

TELL US TWO THINGS THAT HELPED YOU GET THE HAIR YOU HAVE NOW.

What helped me in the beginning was all the people who supported and encouraged me to use my hair natural the endeless Youtube tutorials of hairstyles, homemade recipes, moisturizing products and curl defining products. The hair creams also helped me a lot I still like to experiment new products that affect my hair positively.

TELL US 2 DON’TS FOR YOUR HAIR.

I think something essential we tend not to do is air drying. Tying your hair when wet can cause breakage, weaken and even rot it.
