HAIR WHAT I’VE GOT TO SAY
Hi my lovely friends, I have wonderful women and Girl BOSS today on my blog. I would like you to all meet Renee she is taking over the ‘HAIR WHAT I’VE GOT TO SAY’ segment.
Introduce yourself, what do you do?
I’m Renée Davis a journalist and founder of Out The Box, a hub for young creatives and entrepreneurs.
What’s your favourite thing about your work?
With journalism my favourite thing is meeting and interviewing different people from all walks of life, and framing their story in a way that people can be impacted. Knowing that I can encourage, touch, inform or educate people with my writing is very rewarding.
With Out The Box, I love that we can inspire and equip people through our events, workshops and articles on our website. We have received many success stories on how attending the events and networking with other creative entrepreneurs has been an asset to their business, projects or individual journeys.
Are you natural or relaxed (is that your natural hair colour and texture)
Yes, I am natural. Have been natural for about 8 years now.
What are your go to products?
Of late, I’ve been pre-pooing my hair with a hot oil treatment (peppermint and coconut oil) washing with Shea Moisture’s black castor oil shampoo and deep conditioning with their deep treatment mask. I then moisturise with Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioner, and seal with coconut oil.
What is your all time favour hairstyle?
I don’t have one particularly but I must say I enjoyed rocking a tapered cut. It was new and different for me and I felt super liberated and confident with short hair.
What are your 3 top hair care tips?
Try to stick to low maintenance styles, it’s a great way to keep your ends protected, which means less breakage.
Deep condition weekly or bi weekly and moisturise and seal your hair throughout the week to keep your hair healthy.
Don’t be afraid of scissors! If your ends are split, there’s no way around it but to trim. Again, this keeps breakage at bay meaning your hair can flourish.
Describe yourself in five words?
Passionate, determined, loyal, caring, real (aye that was hard lol)
What helps give you inspiration/motivation?
God, and my amazing friends and family that always encourage me to keep pushing.
What are the top three things on your bucket list?
To meet and have a conversation with Oprah, to learn how to play the bass guitar, to swim with dolphins (the last two aren’t at the top but they’re definitely on my bucket list)
What made you laugh this week?
This evening I spoke to my brothers on the phone and was cracking up at their ridiculous banter!
