Diva Spotlight: Andraya
Tell us a little about yourself & your daughter:
Hello. My name is Latrese and my daughter’s name is Andraya. Her nickname is “Nooey”. She is 10mths currently. I‘m not sure of her hair type. But it‘s a mixture of different one‘s.
What is your daughter's hair care routine?
Andraya‘s hair care routine is pretty simple. I wash every Saturday or every other Saturday. I normally braid or twist her hair. Depending on the style, they can last from a week to 2 weeks. When her hair is in twist, I just re-twist them once they become old. We don’t do anything special for bed. I‘m not sure what I could use that would be safe to put on her head and be okay if it came off during the nighttime. However, during the day when she naps, I do use a satin cap and this is because I can watch her.
What kind of products do you use on her hair?
Our products depend on the style. I wash her hair with Taliah Waajid - Kinky, Wavy, Natural. (3 in 1 Shampoo)
Bee Mine- Juicy ( Daily Moisturizing Spritz), Cantu- Shea Butter ( leave in conditioner), Organic- Olive Oil Girls(Moisturizing lotion), Summit- Liv (leave in conditioner), and just Olive oil. I do not use the products all at once.
Have you ever used chemicals on her hair?
Can we see a few of your favorite styles?
How did you learn to do all of this?
I have been doing hair since I was young. I love styling little girls hair. Thought about going to school for it but never did.
How does your daughter feel about her hair?
Since she is too young to say, I think she feels great! Each time she looks at herself in the mirror, she smiles.
If you had to share one hair care tip, what would it be?
To never leave your child’s hair open while sleeping and if you use rubber bands, not to put them too tight. I dip mine in olive oil or just use the rubber less hair bands.
