Featured Excerpt: Christine Eke

Where do you live?
Currently going to school in Albany, NY.

How long have you had a relaxer?
Since I was … I want to say … 7 maybe??

What’s your regimen?
Shampoo once a week + Conditioner; co-wash 1-2 times a wee.
Moisture Deep Conditioner once a week + Black Tea rinse
Co-wash 2-3 times a month; Oil Rinse + co-wash 2-3 times a month
Protein treatment once a month + Moisture Deep Conditioner
Clarify once a month; moisturize and seal when necessary (4-5times a week)
Relax every 13-18 weeks (last time was 18, before that was 13 weeks, this time I am going for 15)
Trim when needed
Protective/low manipulation styles 99% of the time
Air dry/cool dry 99% of the time

What’s the best/most effective thing you do for your hair?
That would have to be a tie between moisture deep conditioning and co-washing since introducing both these methods into my regimen, my hair has dramatically improved in thickness.

What has been your favourite product?
Right now it’s my moisture deep conditioner, ‘Olive Moisture Mask’ by Komaza Care. But I’m thinking of purchasing a new line of products once my current one finishes, so that’s subject to change.

What is your ‘go to’ style?
Donut Buns!
What has been your biggest challenge during your hair journey? And how did
you overcome this challenge in your journey?
My Biggest challenge has been my thin ends, and it’s a challenge I am still facing, but I’m determined to overcome it.

What is your ultimate hair goal?
I want to maintain the thickness I have now achieved, but lengthen my hair to at least mid-back length. If I get there and I’m feeling up to the challenge I’ll go for longer.

What does 'good' hair means to you?
Hair that you absolutely love, and wouldn't trade for the World!!
