Loretta Directs (Hair feature)

Hi Lovelies, Today we interact with Loretta. She shares some bits of her hair journey with us and shares some tips. P.S Her hair is amazing.

1. Your hair is .......(relaxed this includes texlaxed, natural, loc'd)?

 2. What is your current length?
Full Shoulder Length

3. How long have you been on a hhj and how long did it take to get to your current length?
I have been on a HHJ (healthy hair journey) for 1 year and 4 months. I went from neck length to full shoulder length withing the period with TWO MAJOR trims. I still have some damaged relaxed ends that also have to go. :)

4. What's your daily and weekly regimen like?
I don't really have a daily regimen but I moisturise every other day and ensure I sleep in my satin scarf (sometimes I don't because I'm just too tired).
I shampoo with a moisturising shampoo and deep condition weekly. I rarely miss DCing sessions even when I have a super busy week.

5. How do you like to wear your hair? (i.e your go-to protective style)
Buns are my favourite protective style. I bun 75% of the time. I do weaves 10% of the time, in braids 10% of the time, and I wear my hair down 5% of the time

6. Do you use direct heat? If so, how often?
I'm not heat disciplined but I try to cut it down to blow-drying with heat 2-3 times a month and flat ironing one in 2 months but I beak the rule sometimes. ;)

7. Are you on any diet or are you taking any vitamins to promote healthy hair growth?
I'm not on any diet or pills. I have tried GNC and Hairfinity at different times in the past and had terrible breakouts so I stopped. I just take lots of fruits and vegetables and drink loads of water

8. If you could have only 5 hair related items, what would they be, and why?
  • A water base leave-in moisturiser to combat dryness
  • Olive oil to seal in the moisture and also for hot oil treatments
  • Moisturising Deep Conditioner to hydrate my hair
  • Protein DC to strengthen my hair
  • A satin scarf to protect my hair from damage. And for use when I sleep.

9. Encourage someone also on a healthy hair journey.
Afro textured hair really grows with the right hair acre practices. It may take a while to notice significant progress, but, it will come. Don't Give Up!

Really readers, DON'T GIVE UP! Stay AWESOME :*
