5. Do you every wear your hair curly?
Yes, I go back and forth between stretched and curly. It just depends on my mood.

6. Why do you stretch your hair so much?
I don't really care for protective styling and I have noticed that I get a lot less tangles and single strand knots when I do. If you would like to see how I stretch my have, click HERE

7. How often do you straighten your hair?
Maybe twice a year, usually in November and March. I live in Texas, so it's kinda pointless with the humidity.

8. What is your hair type?
Human... I haven't really figured out the system because my hair is wavy, curly, zig-zag and even straight in some areas.

9. What color is your hair?
Any combo of red and brown that Creme of Nature hair color makes.

10. Has your hair ever fallen out from hair color?
No. One of the things I make sure to do is moisturize my hair morning and night. I also condition my hair more than I wash it for the first 6 weeks and I only color my hair twice a year at most.
