We met Kameelah in December 2021 after we sent out a model call for tight curlies + naturals that lived in Chicago. Kameelah did a big chop in 2019 and has been completely natural since then. Prior to her salon visit with Aishia, she mentioned that she was a busy college student who was a devoted twist out girl who loved the volume and softness she got from them.
Kameelah’s Initial Salon Visit: December 2021
In her consultation with Aishia, Kameelah mentioned that her biggest hair challenge was the amount of time that it took to detangle her hair. She explained during her consultation that she typically would leave her twists in for 3 weeks, wear the twists unraveled for 1 week, which often resulted in her not shampooing for 4 weeks.
Kameelah’s hair type, formally known as the Essential Elements, is high density with fine hair strands, with a surface texture of mixture of smooth and silky. She wanted to wear wash and go’s, but noted that she still needed to work on her technique. Kameelah expressed that for the new year, she wanted to establish a consistent hair care routine.
Remember, cleansing and conditioning on a consistent basis is crucial for a healthy hair care routine. At Black Girl Curls, we typically recommend that you cleanse your hair every 5 to 7 days dependent on your lifestyle (whether you work out, work a dirty job, etc.) with high quality products.
Kameelah’s Follow Up Salon Visit: July 2022
Kameelah arrived to the salon is a blow out, in which she had did a braid out on. She got color done by a colorist in April 2022. Kameelah was still using products high in oils and butters in addition to the new color, which resulted in her needing a few treatments done in the salon.
Kameelah also shared how she’s working to gain confidence in establishing her signature style.
“It’s also the girl aspect, too. Out of all my friends, I’m the only natural and there’s nothing wrong with it. But it’s like everyone is wearing frontal [wigs], etc. So it’s like when I go to the function, I also want to you know… [kill the game].”Kameelah W. | Consumer
But best believe, the girls are still pulling up to parties rocking their wash and go’s! It’s okay to be different from your close circle of friends and family and establish your own signature style that best suits your lifestyle and personality.
Due to the fact that Kameelah desired bigger, fluffier hair, Aishia used a specific product combination that would give her a more “lived in” wash and go look. Want to know want she used? Subscribe to our SeeSomeCurls Visual Library to catch her filmed salon session replay.
