Just wanted to introduce myself.
I'm Zemaria (pronounced Zuh-ma-air-ee-uh)
18 years old. Community College Student.
Will be 3 years natural in January 2014.

My hair journey:
-Flat ironed from 5th grade -10th grade
Rarely wore my natural curls then... Only in the summer.
- Dyed my hair Blonde when I was 16.
Wanted a change... damaged my hair badly (duh). Barely straightened my hair then. Grew out my color for 9 months and died it dark brown... eventually my Blonde peaked through again to reveal an ombré effect. I loved it!
- Slowly cutting off the Blonde hair. I think 4 more inches left and it'll be gone.
Just waiting for the right time.

My hair inside and out:
Curl pattern : 3b/3c . I feel I'm in the middle.
Porosity: Low. Unfortunately
Texture : Course/ Normal . Up for debate.
Density: Medium. I have a lot of hair, but not too thick.
Length: Curly- Shoulder Straight- Bra strap
Itchy scalp and protein sensitive
Hates Coconut Oil and Olive Oil

Current products:
Shampoo: Shea Moisture Moisture Retention Shampoo
Detangling Conditioner: Tresseme Naturals (Any one)
Cowash Conditioners : Shea Moisture African Black Soap Balancing Conditioner
Leave- in: Shea Moisture Curly and Style Milk
Styler: Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie
Gel: Shea Moisture Curling Soufflé
Oil: Shea Moisture Reconstructive Elixir
Styling Tools: Wide tooth comb and Duck bill clips

I love to share my trial and error with anyone wiling to listen.
I hope to help one curly head at a time.
Lets talk!
