What is your name and where are you from?
Hello my name is Carla Vick and I live in Little Rock, AR
Tell us about your blogging and your hair journey.
I’ve been natural for 3.5 years and I started my blog because I started receiving so many questions about how I care for my hair. So I wanted a place to send people where they could get all the info in one spot! I went natural because I was bored with my straight hair. And if I wanted curls or big hair, I’d have to sit under the dryer for hours and hours! I haven’t regretted my decision for a day!
How did you do it? BC? Transition? What was your technique?
I big chopped and didn’t really transition long at all. Maybe 3 months. I went to my hair stylist and she shaved it off!
What do your peers and family think?
They all are fascinated by my hair and the styles I do! At first some were skeptical, but now they are believers!
What are your favorite products for washing, moisturizing, and conditioning?
I co-wash with Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner or Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa Balance Moisturizing Conditioner . I also condition with that. I have a variety of moisturizers I love: Camille Rose Naturals Curl Love Moisture Milk and BASK Palm Tapioca are two of them.
What is your favorite hairstyle for hair growth?
What advice do you give to people transitioning?
I didn’t transition so I don’t have much advice in that area. I would say that they should deep condition often, detangle gently with a wide tooth comb while the hair is wet with conditioner. Also do styles such as braid outs and bantu knots. More power to the people with the patience for that!
