Hi my lovely friends I would like you to all meet Rachel,she is taking over the ‘HAIR WHAT I’VE GOT TO SAY’ segment.
Introduce yourself, what do you do?
My name is Rachel, i’m from London. I recently created Curl Curious, a growing insider’s guide to all things curly, kinky and coiled. We cherry-pick the best loved natural hair care products and share our hair care tips, tricks and D.I.Y recipes that your hair will love! We have our first line of products in production as we speak ready for 2017! I also have an online Gift shop (www.giftcrouchend.co.uk) as well as a Vegan YouTube Channel (Pineapple & Kale).
What’s your favourite thing about your work?
I get to be super creative about things that i am passionate about, whether it’s to do with a Vegan lifestyle or sharing how to love and care for your kinky curly hair.
Are you natural or relaxed (is that your natural hair colour and texture)
Natural 4C hair. My hair is currently recovering from 8 years of tight weaves and severe neglect! I am slowly big chopping, trimming 2 inches off every 8 weeks until the damaged hair is all gone.
What are your go to products?
My homemade African Black Shampoo – The most amazing wash day experience of my life! (http://curlcurious.com/index.php/2016/10/16/homemade-shampoo-african-black-soap-slippery-elm/)
Tangle Teezer Brush – Has saved many many hours of detangling, I recommend this to EVERYONE!
Shea Moisture JBCO Leave In – Does a good enough job
Argan Oil – My hair loves Argan Oil, especially having Low Porosity hair, Argan Oil and Grapeseed Oil keep my hair healthy!
What is your all time favour hairstyle?
Funnily enough I don’t have one, I get so busy with life i find it easier stretch it over night in a protective style and then just put it back in a bun.
What are your 3 top hair care tips?
Always deep condition!
Trim your ends when you feel two strand knots and split ends. Hair always looks healthier and thicker when your ends are healthy.
Leave in conditioner is a must.
Do you have a hair routine?
Yes, it makes life a lot easier to look after my hair when I have a scheduled routine.
I wash and deep condition once a week, and moisturise every 2-3 days.
Describe yourself in five words?
What helps give you inspiration/motivation?
My mum. There is no simple answer to explain why but she is my superwoman.
What are the top three things on your bucket list?
Bungee Jumping/Sky Diving
To travel to every continent and as many countries as possible
What made you laugh this week?
Watching my puppy Marlee play football, literally head butting the ball and dribbling like a pro, I genuinely believe that she was a Pro Footballer in a past life.
