Her interim regimen, carried out six times weekly, includes brushing, oil application, and basic braiding, each session lasting about 40 minutes.

Despite the time-consuming nature of her routine, Jasmine views it as a worthwhile investment. She’s even launched her Lars Haircare brand to share her knowledge and passion.

Reflecting on the proposals, Jasmine said, “When I reached 100,000 followers, I started receiving numerous marriage proposals, likely because I’m single, have long hair, and am perceived as sweet. Despite feeling bad about rejecting them, I’ve clarified that I’m not interested in marriage and prefer it to happen organically.”
