I live in Portland, OR and I am a full time blogger!

- How would you describe your hair?

It definitely has a mind of its own! It’s naturally curly but I typically end up curling it myself.

- How does your hair make you feel?

There are many days where my hair makes me feel SO confident and other days, it’s definitely a love/hate relationship.

- Have you always felt this way about your hair or has it changed over time?

I think as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to appreciate my hair way more. I understand it more now so I definitely try and take care of it way more than when I was younger.

- What is your current haircare routine?

I like to try out different shampoos and conditioners but once I’m out of the shower, I almost always use the Crown Affair Comb No. 001 and The Oil. I’m such a big fan of the product. I noticed a difference in how soft my hair felt just after a couple of uses.

- What other daily rituals do you lean into the most?

I actually have a night routine I try and stick with. I will turn on my diffuser, make some tea and just listen to music to wind down. It’s a good way to destress after the day!

- Tell us a random fun fact about you!

I used to play the trombone through high school! I wish I would have stuck with it!
