Intro­duce your­self.
J: My name is Janae Miller. I am 27 years young and I’m a licensed cos­me­tol­o­gist, locat­ed in Hous­ton, TX.

Did you tran­si­tion or big chop?
J: I have been nat­u­ral­ly curly for over 10 years. My tran­si­tion to nat­u­ral hair came about by me cut­ting my hair into a nice bob hair cut. Although I’ve been nat­u­ral­ly curly for a while, I did not prop­er­ly know how to care for my hair, espe­cial­ly con­sid­er­ing I have been col­or treat­ed the major­i­ty of time.

How would you describe your tex­ture?
J: If I had to take a guess, I’d say my curl pat­tern was more of a 3c with 3b at the nape. The tex­ture is more medi­um fine, with medi­um den­si­ty.

Describe your styling reg­i­men over the course of the mon­th, and the ratio­nale behind your var­i­ous styling deci­sions.
J: My styling reg­i­men is very sim­ple: A Braid out or twist out is my go to hair­style. My leave in mois­tur­iz­er is Can­tu Shea Butter’s leave in repair cream. I love that stuff!

What does wash day look like for you?
J: I sham­poo using the Red­ken Col­or Extend sham­poo fol­lowed by Red­ken Extreme Shots for a recon­struct­ing treat­ment or a mois­tur­iz­ing treat­ment on my hair every 2 weeks. I switch between mois­ture and recon­struct­ing treat­ments.

Describe your favorite go-to hair­style for days when you don’t have a lot of time to style.
J: On my lazy days, low buns are my best friend.


How do you com­bat shrink­age?
J: Shrink­age has nev­er real­ly been a prob­lem for me. I embrace what­ev­er my hair wants to do. The health of my hair and scalp is my main con­cern.

Tell us about your hair col­or!
J: I am a licensed cos­me­tol­o­gist and I am cer­ti­fied with the pro­fes­sion­al hair col­or line Pra­vana. I absolute­ly adore their line of hair col­or! With fre­quent changes of hair col­or, you will see a slight change in curl pat­tern, but after recon­struct­ing treat­ments you will notice your curls spring back into action! Hair col­or is a jour­ney, not a des­ti­na­tion, so patience and a grad­u­al process is key when going through hair col­or changes.

What are some of your prob­lem areas (if any) that require extra care and atten­tion?
J: My prob­lem area would be my crown. It grows low­er than the rest of my hair, and tends to be short­er with a coarser tex­ture.

What are 2 do’s for your tex­ture?
J: Only 2? LOL. Water & mois­tur­iz­er. Sim­ple.

What are 2 don’ts for your tex­ture?  
J: Rough comb­ing on dry or wet hair.

Is there a blog/webpage or social media account where we can find you?
J: Insta­gram: Janae_Miller Face­book: Janae ELEKTRIK Miller and YouTube: Elek­trik­TV

I seen her before and rec­og­nize her chan­nel. It’s nice to see her on this site. The col­or suits her. Good inter­view.


I wish Janae was in NYC! I would love her to col­or my hair like that! Beau­ti­ful…


I love Janae! Her adven­tur­ous­ness is admirable. I love watch­ing her videos.


Love it!


I LOVE her videos on Youtube!! :D Eletrik­tv, i think it’s called. She’s so free and adven­tur­ous with her hair, it’s amaz­ing! You inspire me so much to love every bit of this nat­u­ral jour­ney! Con­grats on your arti­cle!!


I’ve seen her on YouTube. She has nice hair.


I have to live vic­ar­i­ous­ly through gor­geous col­or vix­ens such as your­self, I LOVE col­or but nev­er put in the effort to main­tain it prop­er­ly. Sim­ply gor­geous curls!

Lots of pop­pin fun col­ors! Great fea­ture.


Very Nice!


Fun col­ors! That fuch­sia is real­ly flat­ter­ing.

What a love­ly head of hair. She has to be a pro­fes­sion­al to main­tain such a full amount of hair after all the col­or­ing. She’s cute nonethe­less and I espe­cial­ly love the blue fro :)


I love the colour changes espe­cial­ly the pastel pink and laven­der. Your hair is gor­geous and looks so healthy. I hope to try colour soon but my mom is wary,I’m only 15 any tips for it any­one?
