Is your field of work accepting to your hair Yes, there is not much to say since it is Retail and the company is quite diverse. When people touch your hair, you..... ...I feel disrespected and violated. I understand the subconscious reason for the behaviour of those that touch other people's hair without consent.

I realized that I could do a lot with my hair by braiding it, using wigs, extensions, dye it etc. The older I get, the more I do with my hair because I see the beauty in it. Sometimes it's just unbelievable, and that’s why I love my hair so much.
What hairstyle would you like try someday: A Mohawk Is your field of work accepting to your hair Yes, they have seen me with so many different hairstyles and every time when they see something new, they ask so many questions about it and compliment me because it looks. When people touch your hair, I say: You can admire my hair without touching it.
What is your hair care routine Ayaa? I wash my hair every two weeks. Before I wash it, I make my own hair mask using karkar oil, castor oil, garlic oil and chebe powder. I leave this in my hair for approximately 2 hours. After that I wash my hair by using a shampoo of the brand Africa’s best (constituting vitamin E, Keratin and Aloe vera). I let my hair dry naturally without using any heat. When my hair is dry, I use hair food (green jar) to moisturize my hair. I will style my hair in a bun, or I make (side) corn rows (3 rows each side approximately)
What is your holy grail (your favourite products you can’t live without)? I actually don’t have a favourite product since I almost tried everything on my hair and change my routine every while and then by using some new products, I find interesting or get recommend by friends and family. What is your go-to hairstyle? Since I’m a hijabi I usually have my hair braided in cornrows or in a low bun otherwise I find it not that suitable under my headscarf.
How would you describe your hair journey and your love for your hair? Before I started to wear my hijab, I used to braid my hair a lot by using extensions and I liked that a lot as it really saves you time in the morning and it let your hair rest and grow easily. Currently, I tried some new products what basically affected my hair negatively as it broke down and became thin. I decided to cut my hair ends a bit. I’m using the hair mask routine (stated above) for almost 3 months now and my hair started to become thick again as well did it grow in length.
All of these experiences have taught me my hair is mine, and I love it. What hairstyle would you like try someday: Yoooo, I might transition to locs when it has reached my old length again! Is your field of work accepting to your hair I mean... I hope so? I know some people always will have a lot to say, especially in the professional field. After last year, I know some changes are being made, so time will tell (if they don't, its their problem though). When people touch your hair, you.....: Please don't do that…
Is your field of work accepting to your hair Well it's not a matter of accepting they just need to roll with it, cause my hair is part of who I am and there shouldn't be any job telling me what to do with my hair. And honestly, a fro is much more work than short hair. And if you take good care of it people are gonna love it anyway, trust me
When people touch your hair, you..... I honestly don't do anything about it. Cause people almost always ask it and I mostly let them as long as they don't ruin it. I do kinda see it as an appreciation of the work I put in it. Cause when it wouldn't look good, they wouldn't want to touch it.
Is your field of work accepting to your hair Yes! If anything, people remember me because of it, there are not so many politicians with an afro. When people touch your hair, you..... Remind them of social distancing and take a step back
What is your haircare routine Marisa? Every day - water spray; Every two days - leave in conditioner; Once a week - deep conditioning treatment What is your holy grail: (Your favourite products you can't live without) Don't have favourites. I rarely change my products and am not a product junkie. I do like what I am using currently, which is Taliah Waajid's hair mask.
What is your go-to hairstyle: Twists when my hair was longer. Now I prefer cornrows and box braids. How would you describe your hair journey and your love for your hair I am a lazy natural-head. I was also gifted some pretty cool genes in combination with my diet (plant-based) which helped maintain health as well as length. I love my hair and it's density and volume: those are the things I appreciate and get attention from. What hairstyle would you like to try someday I always wanted to try a very short afro and that's what I did back in March.
What is your haircare routine Arianto?Just rose water. What is your holy grail: I don’t have any. What is your go-to hairstyle: Leaving it hanging or a simple low ponytail. How would you describe your hair journey and your love for your hair: I used to have short hair for the majority of my life. Being told by family that my hair should look presentable. Since 2017 I started letting my hair grow. Tried some different hairstyles and now feeling better than ever with my locs. It’s an amazing feeling to see them grow. What hairstyle would you like try someday: I might want to dye my hair. Is your field of work accepting to your hair: I think not. But they have to. When people touch your hair, you..... Ask whether their hands and soul are clean and who they think they are. But I must say that these last couple of years nobody tried to touch my hair. I’m really glad about that.
What is your haircare routine Zanita? My hair routine is actually very simple. I start by making my hair a bit wet before styling it. The most products that I use are from aunty Jackie, like the grapeseed ice curls curling jelly to define my hair and to get it in perfect shape. Besides that, I also use gel, edge control and (castor) oil for the shine. When I wash my hair with shampoo, I also use a good conditioner. I never dry my hair with a hairdryer, I always just let it dry itself. Before sleeping, I braid my hair and use a satin bonnet to protect my hair. I only wash my hair once a week, otherwise my hair and scalp will dry out quickly. (That’s why I love my Palmer's Coconut Oil!)
What is your holy grail: I cannot live without my Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula! What is your go-to hairstyle: Just a simple styled mini afro. How would you describe your hair journey and your love for your hair Last year I randomly decided to cut my hair, I was pretty much bald because at the back it was completely shaved. I just wanted something else, something completely different. Best thing I’ve even done to be honest… When I was younger, I struggled a lot because I simply didn’t know how to work with my hair. I have learned a lot from my sister. She taught me the basics, and then I became more and more passionate about my hair and different hairstyles.
What hairstyle would you like to try someday? Not something really specific but I haven’t tried crochet braids yet, so maybe one day. Is your field of work accepting to your hair? Well, people do accept my hijab in my area, so I’m glad. Back in the days when I still lived in the neighbourhood of Hengelo, people really see your hair as something rare…
When people touch your hair, you… You better don’t, haha! Glad I don’t have that any more, but one thing for sure, never touch a Black woman hair without asking first, or don’t even ask or touch it would be the best.
What is your haircare routine Chayenne? I try to cowash wash my hair every one to two weeks. I only use shampoo every month, as it dries my hair out. After washing my hair I use leave in conditioner by Novex, and that's it! What is your holy grail I have tried many hair products that don't do anything for my hair after using them for a while. At this moment I am using the Novex leave in conditioner, and my hair seems to love it! What is your go-to hairstyle: As I cut my hair last year, I am trying to only do hairstyles that cause the least damage to my hair/scalp. I noticed that braiding my hair into 2 cornrows and then connecting them with bobby pins work for me. How would you describe your hair journey and your love for your hair My hair journey started as most black girls/women/x. Neither my mom nor I knew how to handle it, which resulted in me doing a lot of chemical stuff with it. After my hair got shorter because of the damage, I decided to cut all the dead ends and start all over. From there got to learn more about my hair type, and I am still in that phase as I am getting to know it all over again after my first real big chop in 2020. I'm happy comments from other people don't get to me any more.
What is your haircare routine Steven? Well I don't really have one, I'm one of those people that just put something in and see how the hair looks. But if I would have any, I would be like condition-wash once a week. Shampoo once in two weeks. Condition the hair with a leaf-in conditioner, moisturize with oil and on top use either another oil or a curling cream
What is your holy grail: (Your favourite products you can't live without) I don't really have a favourite product, I'm still figuring out what I like and what works for my hair. One thing I do love to use though is black castor oil. Cause it always gives me the feeling of volumes and light hair.
What is your go-to hairstyle: My go-to hairstyle is a curly fro either a big fro or a mini fro, as long as it's curly! How would you describe your hair journey and your love for your hair For me, it's an ongoing journey what I like to use and how I like to have my hair, but I love to have my fro all curly and bouncing. I do cut my hair from time to time really short like now, but I must say I always miss my fro afterwards.
What hairstyle would you like try someday I honestly don't know what hairstyle I would try, I kinda love my fro too much to keep a hold on a different hairstyle. My fro has kinda been my signature. So people around me are kinda disappointed when I cut my hair short it's not only them who miss my fro though
What is your haircare routine Mikal ? I wash my hair with shampoo once a week, and do a cowash and deep mask after. Then I use leave in conditioner and some gel to style it. Every two or three days I wash my hair with only water and apply the leave in and gel again.
What is your holy grail: The Tangle Teezer and the Novex Black deep mask! Detangles my hair like a dream What is your go-to hairstyle: I literally always wear my hair loose How would you describe your hair journey and your love for your hair I was very insecure about my hair in high school and I used to relax and straighten it. The day after my high school graduation I went natural and I never looked back. I felt so free! What hairstyle would you like to try someday The Eritrean/Ethiopian hairstyle for married woman. I’m not married, so I’ve never worn it before.
