FBFF ~ Hair Care

Katy over at ModlyChic, is the founder of Fashion/Beauty Friend Friday {FBFF}. Each week, Katy puts some thought provoking questions together and emails them to us. On Friday we all post our responses. It's s a fun, diverse and creative blog community! If you're interested in being a part of this fabulous group, head over to Katy's FBFF page for details!

 This week: Hair Care

1.      How often do you get your hair cut?

I really try to get my hair trimmed about every 6 weeks or so. I had it short for awhile and now I'm working on growing it out.

2.      Do you go to the same stylist each time, try someone new, go to the cheap hair cutting chains or live it up in a salon?
I have two main hair stylists. They have both been my stylists for over ten years now. One of them, Anthony, does my relaxers* (chemical straightening) about every 6 weeks or so. Sabrina does my cuts/trims and has colored it for me in the past. When it comes to my hair I do not mess around! There's no way I'm walking into a Super Cuts! Nothing against them but especially living in a predominately white area with my kind of hair, it can be risky. Many stylists in my area do not have experience with ethnic hair, so I stick with who I know and splurge on my relaxers!!
*If I'm strapped for the extra money I will occasionally relax it or have my mom do it at home

3.      Do you color your hair? How often? What’s your natural color?
I have colored it in the past but haven't lately. My natural color is what you see on the blog-dark brown. Usually in the summer it lightens quite a bit, so by the end of the summer it's lighter brown with lots of red in it. It's showing some nearly blonde streaks in certain light right now, which is really strange but I love it!

this is about the length now... and sort of shows how brown it is 2/11

 
4.      The one thing you always do to keep your hair looking great is:
In order to limit heat exposure daily, I try to remember to wrap it at night. I use a scarf that's basically like a turban and brush all of my hair so that it wraps around my head and I put the scarf around it to hold it there. In the morning all I have to do is comb/brush it down and it's usually perfect! Booyah!!

5.      What hair trend do you love and wish you could rock?
Honestly, right now I don't want any particular trend. I just miss my hair being long, so I'm excited to grow it out. I had a Halle Berry cut in college and LOVED IT, so at times I wish it could be that short one day and super long the next. Yea, that's not going to happen.

What do you do to keep your hair looking fabulous?

  1. Thanks for sharing!  You always look amazing so it's no wonder you splurge a little on hair.  I do, too.  Mine is really thick (like crazily so) and if I didn't splurge I would look like a poodle.  Hair is the key to happiness IMO!  Haha!

  3. Your hair looks very pretty.  You take good care of it by protecting it at night.
    I quiet getting relaxers almost 2 years now. I decided to go natural because I didn't want chemicals in my hair and wanted my thickness and curl back.  My anniversary will be in June. I will talk about my hair periodically on my blog starting next month.JTwisdom

  8. Thank you, Teresa! You're so sweet! Actually, my skin isn't all that great these days... it's kind of oily, so I don't have any good tips at this point!

  12. Oh, Lindsay, you're so nice!! Thanks for the kind words! Your hair always looks really pretty! I applaud women with really thick hair who keep it looking nice-- I can't imagine-- mine is really thin.

  13. Amen on the Super Cuts!!  I haven't had good experiences with them!

    I also make it a point to wrap my hair up at night.  I have scarves, doo rags, and bonnets so I'm always covered!  It also keeps your hair moisturized too. Cotton pillowcases can make your hair dry and frizzy!
