“It’s all about color, texture and texture again,” she says.
“I really enjoy using this stuff.”
For many, the beauty of hair care can be traced back to a grandmother, according to Lila.
For Lila, who grew up in rural Oregon, the journey started in her mother’s house.
Growing up in a rural area, she says, it was “like a little village,” with a lot of tradition.
“She told us, ‘You’re not supposed to have hair.
You’re supposed to be wearing a wig.'”
She recalls her mother putting her in her grandmother’s wig and telling her it was a way of showing that she had “grown up in the world of hair.”
Lila’s mom had long curly hair that would have looked great with a long ponytail.
Her grandmother insisted she was growing it in a wig, so Lila was able to get the same results as her mom.
“They were both very good at it, and I really liked it,” Lila says.
Lila says she would often look at her grandma’s long hair and be “in awe” of it.
“She had the longest hair I ever saw.
It was like, wow!”
She adds, “She’s probably the only person I know who didn’t have to grow her hair out to look pretty.”
While Lila admits she was initially hesitant to start using the products she was using, she eventually did.
“The longer I have it, the better it looks,” she laughs.
“And it’s very pretty.”
