Admittedly before we sat down with Hairfinity’s first brand ambassador, Keshia Knight Pulliam we felt like we knew her. For years we watched her on television as Rudy Huxtable on “The Cosby Show,” bopping around trying to gain the attention of her older siblings. And while she’s since graduated from Spelman College, appeared in big screen films and started a non-profit (Kamp Kizzy) one thing about her has not changed. “My hair is the same hair I’ve always had, but as I get older I know how to manage it better,” she said. “And I’ve always had a whole lot of hair to manage.”

The actress has indeed always had a beautiful mane that she keeps shoulder length. Attracted by her healthy lifestyle and thick locs, Hairfinity approached Knight Pulliam about the product and she signed on. But not before asking around, doing research and trying the product out for herself.

Now, she’s talking about her love of the natural hair growth vitamin that contains Biotin (prevents breakage), Niacin (promotes scalp circulation), Vitamin B12 (transports oxygen to the scalp and follicles), Silica (maintains hair elasticity) and many more nutrients.

On why she joined Hairfinity: “I’m not interested in selling anything to my friends, family or fans that I don’t wholeheartedly believe in. In addition to friends taking it and doing a Google search, they sent me the vitamins. I started taking them and in two months I saw a difference. My hair felt thicker and it was shedding less.”

On the trick to seeing results: “You have to take them consistently. It’s a commitment to a lifestyle of health and wellness. It’s like going to the gym once a month and wondering why there’s no results. It’s a lifestyle change.”

On keeping her hair natural: “My mom didn’t believe in putting chemicals in hair. But when I got to college, we didn’t have A/C in our dorms freshman year. So after several days of waking up looking like a Chia Pet, I was like ‘OK, I’m gonna get a perm.’ And then my hair revolted and fell out. I was over that quick, fast and in a hurry. But it’s OK. You live and you learn and you have to have those experiences to know what to do in the future.”

On how she keeps her hair in her downtime: “When I’m working I wear my hair straight. But if I’m at home in Atlanta or heavy in the gym, 99 percent of the time my hair won’t be straight. I won’t even bother because it’s just added heat on my hair that isn’t necessary. Especially with this Atlanta humidity.”

On if she’d ever cut her hair short: “I had a weave that was a short bob, just to see how I would feel about short hair, and it was cool… I never say never… but at this point in my life, I’m more of a long hair girl because I like to be able to pull my hair back into a ponytail. When you have short hair, it has to be done all the time. I appreciate short haircuts on women and have seen some beautiful styles, but for me and my level of activity– swimming, hiking, working out– it’s easier to be able to have the versatility of a ponytail.”
