What I Wore: InstaStyle Week 24

I often get questions about my hair so I decided to dedicate this week's InstaStyle post to answering those questions:


Q.  Is that your real hair?

A.  Yes.


Q.  Is that a wig or weave?

A.  No.


InstaStyle Week 24b


Q.  Is your hair relaxed or natural?

A.  Relaxed.


Q.  How does your hair stay so healthy?

A.  I see my stylist very regularly – at least once every 2 weeks, occassionally I'll throw an extra appointment in between my standing appointment.  Seeing someone regularly who not only knows my hair, but takes care of it plays a big part in my hair health.  I rarely apply heat to my hair in between appointments (see below for style maintenance).  If rain or humidity has really gotten to my hair, then I will flat iron it with my Chi.  I will use my curling iron if I want to add some curls like in these photos.  But again, it's rare that I do either.  Also, I have my genes to thank for my hair.  And did I mention that I drink a lot of water?  I always think that plays a part.


InstaStyle Week 24c


Q.  Where do you get your hair done?

A.  Hairs Your Glory in Charlotte, NC.  My stylist's name is Lisa.


Q.  What products do you use on your hair?

A.  I'm so not a products girl.  I would love to share my products with you, but honestly, I don't really have any.


InstaStyle Week 24d


Q.  How do you maintain your style?

A.  I wrap my hair every night and tie it with a scarf.  I usually (unless I'm staying the night with someone or someone is staying the night with me) wear a bonnet on top of my scarf to keep the scarf in place and to protect my edges that might not be completely covered by the scarf.


Q.  May I touch your hair?

A.  No.


InstaStyle Week 24e


So, those are the frequently asked hair questions that I get.  As you can see, I'm very low maintenance when it comes to my hair.  I like being able to wrap it and go to bed and then unwrap it and go.  Do you have any special hair secrets, tips, or tricks?

    Your hair is so pretty, Tamara! It reminds me of my hair when I was relaxed and wore the similar style.  But, I am completely natural now and my go to style is my Bun…easy and simple!

    You know I've always loved your "Pantene" hair! I keep saying, natural hair is NOT the only way to beautiful, healthy hair!

    I am cracking up at the part about how you handle your hair at night if you are staying someone else or have someone staying over…LOL!
