How does your hair look like and who did you take after?
My hair is brownish and curly. My mother is an half cast so I got my hair from her.
What hairstyle are you used to?
I like all back flowing hair because I think it brings out my face. I really don't like hair dropping on my face- such hairstyles stress me so much because I'll be trying to push it back all the time. My natural hair also soothe me well, so I like wearing it too. Besides, my natural hair is long. So what I do to it add some extension to it so it looks fuller.
Have you cut your hair before ,why and for how long ?
Of course I've cut my hair before. I cut my hair because I got tired of wearing a long hair and I just wanted to look different and it worked. I wore the low cut hairdo for over a year before I started re-growing it.
How do you describe people that wear dreadlocks?
I think its cool. For those I've met, I think it looks good on them and it makes them stand out.
Can you be caught wearing it ?
I'm not really a fan of dreadlocks, so I don't think so (laughs)
How often do you retouch your hair ?
I really don't have a specific time I retouch my hair. My hair is really soft and doesn't really need to be retouched. But sometimes, I do it for the fun of it because other people are doing it
Are you hairy?
No, I'm not hairy.
Do you wear local hairstyles on a normal day?
Yes I do wear local hairstyles. There are times I feel I've stressed my hair so I just weave it and don't add any extension. Weaving it allows me to be free and I don't have to comb it- I just allow it to rest during that time.
What does your hair mean to you ?
I like my hair a lot and it makes me feel pretty
Have you ever tried wigs and how does it make you feel?
Yes I have. Wigs save you a lot of stress, especially when it' s really urgent that you need to go out- it' s a quick solution. I feel very comfortable wearing wigs.
