"HAIR She Is" (Weekly Feature) Mrs. Rashaun King

Tags: hair

Meet this week's "HAIR She Is" Weekly feature, the Beautiful and Fierce, 
Mrs. Rashaun King!

BW: What's your favorite go to style and why?  
RK: My favorite go to style is the following: Wet hair, add conditioner, add oil, brush, and tie my hair down with a scarf for 30 mins. Then I remove the scarf, brush it, and go. This style is so easy and effortless. I do this everyday to add moisture and condition my short tresses. It’s probably not necessary to wet my hair everyday, but it’s become apart of my daily routine.

BW: What are your favorite hair products to use?  
RK: My favorite products are as follows: Cantu Shea butter leave in conditioning repair cream, Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk Cleansing Conditioner, As I am Cleansing pudding, and Shea Moisture Superfruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Oils (Olive oil, Grapeseed oil, Moroccan Oil, and Castor oil).  I like these products because they make my hair feel soft, the oils are not heavy, and simply because they work well for me.

BW: Did you transition from a relaxer into being natural or did you do the "Big Chop?" What was that experience like?
RK: I actually did both. The first time I decided to go natural, most of my relaxer had grown out and my hair was so thick and course that I didn't know what to do with it. I started watching YouTube videos and learned how to do coils in my hair. I liked the style but it was very high maintenance because of my hair texture. So I had to do coils on my hair every morning if I wanted to look polished and put together and it was just became too much. I then went back to a relaxer and short weaves for a while. I had a bad experience with weave. I am a licensed cosmetologist so I knew how to properly remove my quick weave. Baby, let me tell you when I removed that weave… I had bald spots and some of my edges had been stripped out from the glue. I was so upset; I didn't know what to do. I decided to braid my hair and I was able to hide the bald spots. Unfortunately, my edges never grew back to the way they were but it’s ok I just deal with it. After I took out the braids I decided that I was going to just cut off all my hair and start over. I watched so many YouTube videos and that helped me a lot. I went to the barbershop and cut off all my hair in 2012. It’s 2015 and I’m still rocking my brush waves. I love my short hair and my little peanut head, lol. I have never felt more beautiful. Cutting my hair gave me confidence that I never thought I could have. Cutting my hair was one of the best things I did for myself. I do think about growing it back sometimes, but for now I’m going to stick with my clipper cuts every week, my brush, and my doo rag, lol.
BW: Is there anything else that you would like the readers to know about you?  
 I love makeup and skincare. I’m actually in school now studying to become a licensed esthetician. My love for makeup and skincare developed from dealing with acne and acne scarring for years. I was using makeup to cover my skin; I was embarrassed because I felt that it looked bad. I learned that makeup should be used to enhance, not cover every little imperfection. It’s ok to have flaws, we all have them. Yes I love, love, love makeup but I love skincare even more. Taking care of your skin is so important! Yes you can use makeup to “cover”, but if you have great skin, makeup will be an accessory not a necessity.
