Here are some of the questions I get asked the most, and what my answers have been. This way you can get your answers immediately, without having to wait on me. And you never know, you might find answers to a few questions you didn't even know you had yet.

*This is still a work in progress. I'm continuing to add many more questions, and we are still ironing out a few quirks. But we wanted to make this available as soon as possible.

There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

What do you do with your hair when you take a shower?
When I get in the shower, I pin up my hair to keep it from getting wet. I'm too lazy to cover it or anything, and it isn't really that important to totally cover it.

Sometimes my hair gets a little wet in the shower or bath, but that's not a big deal. If it gets a bit wet at night, I run my hands over it to evenly distribute the water throughout my hair. Then I try to leave it out to dry before braiding it up at bedtime, but otherwise, I braid it up wet.

Then in the morning, I do my usual, which is to unbraid it. then I wet my hands, smooth over my hair, then put a little conditioner in my hands, rub together, and smooth over my hair as needed (or you can wet your hands, add conditioner, rub them together, then smooth over your hair).

Whether my hair gets a little wet or not isn't important because I'll be dampening it—slightly—in the morning anyway to smooth and refresh my curls, and cut down on the frizz.
