I don’t too much get into the whole Jet Beauty thing anymore.
I’ll be honest: When I see women of color featured somewhere, they are 10 times more interesting to me if they have natural hair. I’m sure it’s just because I’m natural and I want to relate to the model/actress/etc.
Which is why I was excited to hear about Ms. Taonaya Fleury who is March 2014’s Jet Beauty.
Not only do I love her fro, but her body has that toned, yet feminine look that I aspire to have. I was curious what her hair and body care regimens were. She was kind enough to respond.
I’m not a fan of gyms, so I stay fit by doing activities I enjoy. I dance , swim, and take walks through scenic routes. As long as I’m enjoying the activity, it doesn’t feel like exercise.
I listen to my body and I don’t restrict what I eat, but I am mindful of how much I take in. If I’m less active, I won’t be scarfing down that extra order of onion rings.
I take a multi vitamin with antioxidants and fruit and vegetable extract to supplement what I don’t receive in my daily diet.
I’m not a really a stickler to anything but sleep. I have to get sleep in . I can tell the difference in my skin and even my hair when I don’t get 8 hours .
Skin and hair:
I use exfoliate daily and deep condition my hair weekly, sometimes twice a week as my hair dries out from traveling often.
I saturate my hair daily while in the shower. Slather on conditioner. And use a cleansing shampoo twice a month to clear the gunk from products and environment. I fill a spray bottle with leave in conditioner and various oils and spray after my showers. I’m a lazy hair girl, so I wash and go daily, detangle weekly. I’ve twisted my hair maybe
once in the last 8 months.
All in all, being happy and managing stress seems to be the best regime for saying fit and feeling my best.
All of that sounds pretty simple, which proves that you don’t need to do 50-11 things to have a great body and/or have great hair! Thanks for reppin’ natural hair, Taonaya!
