Hi my lovely friends, I have lovely women today on my blog. I would like you to all meet Daphnie Chery she is taking over the ‘HAIR WHAT I’VE GOT TO SAY’ segment. You are all in for a real good treat today.
Introduce yourself, what do you do?
Hello, my name is Daphnie Chery or otherwise known on my instagram/fb / and YouTube as CREOLENATURELLE. On an average day my 9-5 is working with therapeutic children in foster care as a social worker. In my leisure time, I invest myself in my YouTube channel and social media brand (CREOLENATURELLE) where I show my audience natural hair care tips and styles that work for me, in hopes that it will help someone else out there.
What’s your favourite thing about your work?
Whether speaking in regards of my 9-5 or creating videos for my audience on YouTube my favorite thing about both of these very different areas is my drive to someohow help, educate, empower and teach others. I love that im both of these areas I am able to use my creative gifts to reach others.
Are you natural or relaxed (is that your natural hair colour and texture)
I am natural and have been for 6 years, since transitioning in 2011. YES, this is my natural hair color. I tend to stay away from color processing my hair, in order to preserve its integrity.
What are your go to products?
My favorite products vary based on whether I am looking to clarify or moisturize my hair.
My favorite clarifying products are :
Aloe leaf plant to pre-poo/ cleanse my scalp
Shea moisture african water mint & ginger detox and refresh shampoo and conditioner
My favorite moisturizing products are
Cantu leave in conditioning repair cream
Jamaican black castor oil
Along with the entire envii hair care moisturizing line (I have a video of this line featured on my youtube)
What is your all time favour hairstyle?
As much as I love rocking out my natural hair, it just takes way too long on a weekly basis to keep up with, and I tend to be lazy at times and want something that I can quickly style and go. Therefore, I would have to say I LOVE MY WIGS! Lol (preferably kinky curly ones that mimic my natural hair). Wig protective styling absolutely allows my hair to grow faster and retain length. My current favorite kinky curly hair brands are heat free hair and mercyhairextensions
What are your 3 top hair care tips?
Develop a consistent weekly or bi-weekly wash and deep conditioning hair care routine regiment, based on the needs of your hair.
Trim hair every season, if not at least once a year
Minimize heat usage as less as possible
Do you have a hair routine?
ABSOLUTELY! I wash my hair every week. Every Wednesdays to be exact (WDW: WASH DAY WEDNESDAYS). Weeks 1 and 3 of every month I do my clarifying routine to tackle my dry and dandruff probes scalp. Weeks 2 and 4 are my moisturizing routine, where I add moisture back to my hair that may have been taken away from my clarifying routine the previous week. (I will be creating a video on this on my channel soon)
Describe yourself in five words?
Artistic, compassionate, emapthethic, relatable, meticulous
What helps give you inspiration/motivation?
What gives me inspiration and motivation is the fact that each day I am blessed to wake up is another day to walk in my purpose by helping, teaching and educating others.
What are the top three things on your bucket list?
Take a solo international trip by my 30th birthday. (strongly considering Bali) if you’ve seen the movie eat, pray, love… essentially this is what I’m trying experience.
Grow my brand and youtube channel further
Purchase my dream home and car.
What made you laugh this week?
Watching re-runs of Martin and family matter. (Those are by far my absolutely favorite Tv comedy sitcoms)
