Kinky Curly Coily Queen โ‡” Parris

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

It has been what? Two months or more? I am trying my best to keep up. Between school and my part-time job all I want to do is sleep, sleep and more sleep. Happy New Year guys! ๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽ‡โœจ๐ŸŽŠ I hope the new year started out well for you all. In my last post, I didn’t great y’all well. ๐Ÿ˜˜ What have I been up to? Well, I have been trying to be a good nursing student, as well as, trying to ensure my monetary needs are met. When I am not doing that, I am formulating a business plan I want to initiate soon. I’ve been good and my mind has been on the blog heavily because it gives me peace and I enjoy doing it. Not to deter from the reason I am actually here but to bring to you a beautiful young lady that followed me on Instagram a few months back. Throughout those months I have liked her transition process. At the end of her transition process, I loved how full and bouncy her hair was. Therefore, I DMed her on Instagram and asked if she’d like to be featured on my blog. I think even though I may not have the time to document my natural hair’s progress I can at least bring inspiration from other natural haired girls. My ladies and gents (if you’re reading), meet Parris (such a beautiful name ๐Ÿ˜Š).

1. Introduce yourself.
My name is Parris. I am a 3rd year medical student. Helping people and serving the medically under served is one of my passions. Another one of my passions is natural hair. At first my reasons for going natural were to save money! I would get Dominican blow outs every 2 weeks and I realized I didn’t need a relaxer for my hair to be silky straight. I stopped doing that after about a year in a half in hopes of embracing my natural curls.
2. Did you big chop or transitioned?
I transitioned. I began transitioning in 2010.
3. How long have you been natural?
I became completely natural in Febย 2013.
4. How would you describe your hair texture?
ย I have extremely thick hair. I’m the first in the salon and usually the last one out.ย I would say my hair is 3c/4a.

5. What is your styling regimen like?
When I style my hair I use a cream a gelly and my oil mixture(mielle organics mint almond oil, olive oil, coconut oil, dr.miracle oil)ย most of the time.
6. What is your wash-day regimen like?
Wash day is a process. A lot of times I’ll start with a pre-poo like a mayonnaise mask (olive oil, mayo, apple cider vinegar) or I’ll use a betonite clay mask (clay, honey, oil mix, water, aloe Vera gelย and apple cider vinegar). These are just a few of my favorite pre-poos. Then I wash my hair. I typically part my hair into 4 sections bc it’s easier for me to handle. After I wash my hair I deep condition, I try to use different things when I deep condition(some of my favorites are the mane choice hair mask, mielle organics and Aussie moisturizing deep conditioner). I then put on a hot head for about an hour before washing it out. After that I put on a leave in conditioner my favorite is shea moisture JBCO.
7. What is your favorite go-to hairstyle for days when you don’t have a lot of time to style?
High buns but most of the time I wear my hair in two strand twist.
8. What are some of your problem areas (if any) that require TLC?
I have blond high lights in the very front of my hair. The curls tend to be a little looser. I actually think I am going to just cut it off!

9. What are your favorite products to use on your hair?
I love shea moistures JBCO line. I also like curls blueberry bliss line and the mane choices biotin infused products. If you haven’t noticed I am kind of a product junkie.
10. What problems have you encountered on your natural hair journey?
When I’m stressed and studying I some what neglect my hair. So I would say my growth isn’t where I would like it to be.
11. What does being natural means to you?
Being natural to me is being apart of a community. I can see a natural in the store and we can have an entire conversation about hair. It is partย of embracing my African American culture which is even moreย important now with everything going on.
12. Where can you be found (social sites, blogs, etc.)?
