Intro­duce your­self!
M:
My name is Myzha, I am from New Orleans, Louisiana but I am cur­rent­ly in Ham­mond, Louisiana fin­ish­ing my under­grad­u­ate degree in Kine­si­ol­o­gy.

Why did you make the deci­sion to go nat­ur­al?
M:
My nat­ur­al jour­ney hap­pened as a bet. My friend and I want­ed to see how long we could go with­out a relax­er. I did not take “being nat­ur­al” seri­ous­ly until I saw my friend’s nat­ur­al hair blog and I gained the con­fi­dence to begin my jour­ney. I made 2 years ful­ly nat­ur­al this May. I don’t count my tran­si­tion time as me being “nat­ur­al”. It’s been 2 years since the day I did my big chop. 

How would you describe your tex­ture?
M:
My hair is extra thick, but very man­age­able. To be hon­est I am not exact­ly sure what my nat­ur­al tex­ture is. I think the back of my hair is more of a 4a while the top/front of my hair is a 3c. It real­ly depends on the day and how my curls choose to act.

Describe your styling reg­i­men over the course of the month.
M:
My styling reg­i­men is sim­ple. I do not need a lot of prod­ucts just because of my nat­ur­al curl pat­tern. When I style my hair I either use Shea Mois­ture Curl Enhanc­ing Smooth­ie or Can­tu Twist and Lock Gel to style. If I have run out of these two I use a raw shea but­ter, coconut oil mix that I make with clear Eco Styler Gel.

What does wash day look like for you?
M:
My wash day con­sists of my sta­ple rou­tine. I do not like to use sham­poo because no mat­ter what I use I feel as if my hair is left stripped, but when I do need to clean my hair I use the Organix Moroc­can Oil Sham­poo. After I wash or co-wash my hair I choose my con­di­tion­er of choice and mix it with Extra Vir­gin Olive Oil and raw shea but­ter, heat it togeth­er, and use it as my deep con­di­tion­er. Every time I wash my hair I like to deep con­di­tion it. Once my hair is washed and con­di­tioned, I then use my leave in of choice and style.

Favorite Co-Wash­es:
Shea Mois­ture Coconut and Hibis­cus Co-Wash
Pan­tene Nat­u­rals line Co-Wash

Favorite Con­di­tion­er:
Tre­semme Nat­u­rals LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Favorite Deep Con­di­tion­ers:
Any­thing from the Shea Mois­ture line (I love them all)
Aussie Moist 3 Minute Mir­a­cle

Favorite Leave in Con­di­tion­ers:
As I Am Leave in Con­di­tion­er
Tre­semme Nat­u­rals Con­di­tion­er (I do not com­plete­ly wash it out, or I mix it with water in a spray bot­tle and use it like that)

Describe your favorite go-to hair­style for days when you don’t have a lot of time to style.
M:
My go to style is my puff. I wear it when my twist outs are no longer wear­able. If I cow­ash my hair and don’t have time to style, if I work out; my puff is pret­ty much my best friend. I can always count on it for those busy days.

How do you com­bat shrink­age?
M:
No mat­ter how hard I try I can­not stop the shrink­age. Shrink­age is the rea­son why I do not wear wash and go’s. My hair will shriv­el up and take away all of the length that I have worked so hard for. The best thing to do is just accept it and invest in a hair pick.

What are some of your prob­lem areas (if any) that require spe­cial care and atten­tion?
M:
My hair tends to shed a lot. The ends of my curls require the most atten­tion. I fix this prob­lem by keep­ing them mois­tur­ized and pay­ing extra atten­tion to them.

What are 2 do’s for your tex­ture?
M:
My tex­ture requires a lot of CONDITIONER. Con­di­tion­er is lit­er­al­ly my best friend. It makes my hair easy to comb out and easy to man­age. Pro­vide love to your hair. Peo­ple often ask how my hair grew so fast and all I can say is from day one I gave my hair the extra atten­tion it need­ed to grow.

What are 2 don’ts for your tex­ture?
M:
The only don’t I can say I have for my hair is do not neglect it. My tex­ture requires atten­tion at least once a week.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
M:
Fol­low me on Insta­gram @AlongCameMYZHA. I love look­ing at oth­er people’s nat­ur­al hair and get­ting new ideas about my own.

I love your con­fi­dense. i fnial­ly did the big chop last night. did a lit­tle twist this morn­ing and wait­ed for it to dry. I went out in pub­lic and was wait­ing on crazy stares, but real­ly did­nt get any. My hair is about to the bot­tom of my chin with shrink­age. I work in a med­ical office which requires hair to be pulled up so I bought a pony­tail to wear. I am 1 year in at this point, but just coul­nt chop it all off. You hair is so beau­ti­ful and so are you. Love you con­fi­dence!
Myzha

You are too sweet. Thank you so much for your kind words. I total­ly under­stand how you feel because the field I’m try­ing to get in the door to I often won­der how my hair will be accept­ed. Peo­ple now think my hair is faci­nat­ing or inter­est­ing smh. I have very thick hair and it’s grown to be big, but I know in a buis­ness set­ting I can’t just let it go freely like I wish I could. The best thing I can tell you is to OWN IT. :)

Luis

I lived most of my life in Spain (I’m from Barcelona) and I know pret­ty well Rus­sia: these phtoos were tak­en in Spain (prob­a­bly sev­er­al years ago), for sure. Because of the kind of pave­ment on the street, kind of buid­ing, plate num­bers on that Nis­san Vanette, no russ­ian cars parked around, shut­ters (bfblinds?) at the win­dows, green awnings in sev­er­al bal­conies, easy fence around the buid­ing, and so on.

Myzha

That real­ly means alot! Thank you soo much
