GHEZ healthy hair feature: Debbie

It's such a joy to see ladies taking their hair into their own hands and doing wonders with it! Debbie's hair journey will surely inspire you.



1. Tell us about yourself

Debbie : I'm Deborah Kusi Appiah. I'm 23yrs of Age. I'm a Ghanaian and currently residing at amrahia, along the Dodowa road ( that's close to Valley View University). I've been natural for 5months now and I'm loving my journey.

2. What motivated you to start taking care of your hair?

Well, I've always been very conscious about my hair, ever since I started my hair journey in 2009 after I completed SHS. Along the line, during my national service, I met this nice lady from another department transitioning. So as we had some Ladies' chat almost always, I got inspired by her. So I decided to start my hhj ASAP before I'm left behind.

3. What was your starting length, where are you currently and what is your ultimate length goal?
My hhj started with a TWA. I'm currently grazing a nose trunk(hope u get it) length. Whew! My ultimate length goal is midbak length. ( Smiles)

4. Describe your current regimen-products, washing, styling and daily routine
My current regimen goes like this; On my washdays, I shampoo with Aloe nectar/ creme of nature argan oil sulfate-free moisture & shine shampoo/ herbal essences moisturizing shampoo with coconut extract/ a moisture of black soap and onion extract. I use creme of nature argan oil intensive conditioning treatment/ aloe nectar conditioner after shampooing. I use dark and lovely corrective leave-in conditioning therapy/ ORS incredibly rich oil moisturizing hair lotion to moisturize my hair n then seal with marhaba amla jasmine Hair oil and then I style as preferred( mostly opt 4 a fro). I do protein treatment before and after a protective style. The style last between a month or two. I also wash in between my protective style period. My daily routine also goes like this; I spritz a mixture of water, olive oil, amla oil and glycerin on my hair,  massage my scalp, section the hair out n then comb with a wide tooth comb every morning and for bedtime, I repeat the same procedure but I braid it before bed and also massage scalp with a mixture of shea butter and chapter 2000. I also try to do inversion every month.

5. What techniques will you recommend for natural ladies?
The technique I'd recommend for naturalistas is protective styling.
6. Do you have challenges you face and how do you combat them?
Well, the challenges I've face so far is over manipulation and I haven't really found an antidote to this challenge, but I try as much as possible not to over manipulate my hair.

7. Any advice for ladies on a hair journey?
The advice I'd give to my natural sistas out there are
A. BE PATIENT
B. HAVE A REGIMEN THAT WORKS FOR YOU
C. DNT OVER MANIPULATE YOUR HAIR D. PROTECT YOUR EDGES
E. DON'T HESITATE TO DUMP ANY PRODUCT YOUR DOESN'T LOVE
