Introducing Natural Hair Crush of the week: Khindra Decossard

NB: Why did you decide to go natural? How long have you been natural?

I decided to go natural because having a relaxer may have made my extremely thick hair more manageable but it was not worth it. There was little difference in the texture, especially when in intense heat and humidity; it was as if I did not have a relaxer at all! Lol. I began my natural journey three years ago this month!

NB: What are your natural hair goals?

My natural hair goals are to achieve the long and healthy hair that I used to have but relaxer free. My goal is for my hair to reach elbow length again!

NB:Who is your natural hair crush??

My ULTIMATE natural hair crush would have to be Tracee Ellis Ross! Plus we resemble. 😉

NB:What is your current natural hair regimen?

My current natural hair regimen is co-washing every other day with a basic conditioner (like Garnier Fructis), and a normal wash (Original Mane ‘n Tail shampoo/conditioner) and deep condition once a week (combination of eggs, olive oil, and mayonnaise).

NB: Describe your personal style.

My personal style would have to be simple. I am a wash and go pin-up kind of naturalista. No fussy stuff, just something easy and manageable for everyday wear.

NB:Any tips for transitioners?

My biggest tip for transitioners would be to deep condition! I cannot say this enough! Weekly deep conditioning will help to minimize breakage where new growth and relaxed ends meet. Also, if you are not brave enough to do a big chop, there is nothing wrong with cutting your hair little by little as your hair grows out.

NB: What is your staple all natural hair product?

My staple all natural product would have to be olive oil! Olive oil provides the moisture that my hair needs, and helps to strengthen my hair while defining my curls.

NB:One word that describes your natural hair

My natural hair is diverse!
