Diva Spotlight: Anisa

Photobucket

Tell us a little about yourself & your daughter:

Anisa is a 6 year old African American little girl. I don't know her hair type.

What is your daughter's hair care routine?

I wash her hair once a week now. When she was younger, she hated getting her hair washed. If her hair is in cornrows, I'll leave them in for 3 days. Otherwise her hair is styled daily before school as well as on the weekends unless it's in a protective style. She has a satin head wrap for bedtime but it's not used each night.

What kind of products do you use on her hair?

I use the following products in rotation: Carol's Daughter Hair Milk and Healthy Hair Butter; Shampoo: Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner; Herbal Essence None of Your Frizzness Smoothing Leave-In Creme; and Giovanni Direct Leave-In.

Have you ever used chemicals on her hair?

I have never used chemicals on Anisa's hair. I've been natural my entire life (33) and my mom was natural her whole life as well. Using chemicals has never been an issue.

Can we see a few of your favorite styles?

Sure!!

Amazing! How did you learn to do all of this?

I taught myself how to braid after Anisa was born. I didn't want to have to take her to a solon or have someone else do her hair. As far as taking care of natural hair goes, it came naturally to me since this is all that I've ever known.

How does your daughter feel about her hair? Can we see her favorite style?

Anisa loves her hair!! She's very talkative and sometimes when we're out she will ask total strangers if they like her hair! Lol!! Right now her favorite style is the braided heart (thanks to your site!).

If you had to share one hair care tip, what would it be?

If I had to share one hair care tip it would be this: Regardless of how you choose to style your daughter's hair, make sure to tell her she's beautiful everyday. Our girls need to be comfortable in their own skin and embrace their beauty and not fall victim to the "norm" or what's popular at the moment.
