What is your name, where are you from, and what do you do?
I am Jasmine Diane, a twenty something blogger with a sleek pixie cut, love for female empowerment, shopping addiction, and obsession with lipsticks. I hail from the greatest city in the Midwest... Kansas City, Missouri.
When did you get your first relaxer?
I got my first relaxer before I entered elementary, so my guess is that I was 4 or 5 years old.
Have you ever tried to stray from relaxing your hair? If so, why?
I strayed from relaxing my hair for a few months this past year. I wanted to see what all the hype was about concerning the natural hair movement. I was curious and anxious to see what my hair would look like without a relaxer. I kept my hair natural for about 3 days. I felt super self-conscious and not like myself. I love my hair straight and the easiest way to keep it straightened is with a relaxer, so that is my go to. However, I would like to try to go back natural in a few years. It was a very freeing and terrifying experience.
Explain your current hairstyle.
I rock a midnight black, sleek pixie cut. I do have bangs on occasional, but I love the chicness of my slick back!
What is your hair regimen? Favorite hair products?
I have a weekly routine. I wash my hair with Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo and Cholesterol Conditioner, then let it air dry with gel and mouse. I really don't have nay favorite products. I have been using the same stuff since I got my hair cut 2 years ago.
How does your hair affect your career/lifestyle?
As a blogger, my pixie cut gives me edge and helps people to identify me. I went to a few events while I was growing my hair out and a couple of people did not recognize me. I feel like I am my best self with my pixie cut, so I think that my hair gives the confidence to be successful in my career and overall lifestyle. I love the sexy feeling I get when I have a fresh cut and red lipstick on my lips!
What is your favorite hairstyle, or protective style?
My favorite hairstyle is a protective style, so I can can answer that with one answer: MY SLICK BACK. I love the way my slick hair gives my face room to shine. Sometimes I feel like having bangs takes away from my natural beauty. I never want to hide behind my hair.
How do you manage to retain length? Moisture?
I am retaining length in my bangs by avoiding heat and refraining from cutting. I keep my hair moisturized with argan oil and olive oil. I also deep condition my hair twice a month.
What advice can you give to those who are seeking to have healthy, relaxed hair?
Conditioner is your best friend and stay away from heat. Everyone's hair grows, but people do not retain length or shine because their hair is dry and brittle. Let your hair air dry and let it breathe!
