I'm Just Beeyoutiful! - Spotlight on Genevieve

This spotlight highlights another satisfied Just Bee You'ser, Genevieve. Read on to find out how she takes care of her big beautiful kinky hair. Enjoy!

Tell us about your hair…
My hair is kinky. More of a "Z" pattern than a curl. I have had natural hair up until age 16. I jerry curled it for two years and then got fed up and grew out the chemicals. It took a year for me to get to shoulder length and then I cut off the straight ends. I texturize from time to time but it doesn’t seem to make a difference...sigh...its overwhelmingly thick and resists the texturizer chemicals. I am now 27 yrs old.

Describe your hair care regimen (including the products you use)?
Co-wash with Tressemé curl hydration every weekend, while detangling. I shampoo with sulphate free shampoo named Creme of Nature: Argan oil every 2-3 weeks. I use Shea & Aloe Hair Soufflé from Just Bee You! as my "grease" replacer LOL. I use that product about twice a week or when ever my hair feels dry. I use grape seed oil to seal and to add shine. For daily care I spritz it with water and slick with ampro or eco styler alcohol free gel.

How long have you been using “Just Bee You!” products? How has your experience with the product line been so far?
I have been using JBY products for a very very wonderful year! It has exceeded my expectations because I was so accustomed to using grease (which only coats the hair shaft). I cannot imagine my life with out Shea & Aloe Hair Soufflé.

What is your favourite “Just Bee You!” product?
You probably guessed it! Shea & Aloe Hair Soufflé.

What are 5 hair items / products you can’t live without?
   1. Shea aloe souffle
   2. Spray bottle (with water)
   3. Half Wigs that blend with my natural hair well (life savers)
   4. Tresseme conditioner
   5. Gel (alcohol free and must be max hold...MUST BE MAX HOLD!!!!!)

What are some of the lessons you've learnt on the journey to healthy hair?
Water is my hair's best friend and I must use oils and things that penetrate the hair shaft.

What one piece of advice would you give to anyone trying to maintain healthy hair?
Not all products work for all hair. Experimentation is key. Also, your hair is your responsibility. Therefore, if you have to find time to manage it, do your best. If it means using chemicals, weaves braids etc, do that BUT make sure the health of your real/natural hair is preserved under it all.

What do you love most about your hair?
Love my hair because of its versatility!
