While comedy is a great coping mechanism, we all need more than one in our self-care toolkit, and thankfully, Majimbo has many others. “Sometimes, I feel hungry, and me picking up my phone and just dialing KFC — for me that’s self-care. Or when I’m just in the house and I hear my dog barking, and I run outside and we play, that’s self-care, too,” she says. She continues, “Sometimes it can be just cleaning myself, doing my hair. I love doing my hair. It makes me feel so nice, and almost like, ‘Ooh, it’s fabulous.’ That’s also self-care, so it changes with the moment.”
She tells me that most of her beauty decisions are based on her just wanting to watch Netflix or eat over anything else, so she keeps her beauty routine super natural, including for her videos, which she usually films makeup-free and with her hair in twists. Her fans immediately locked onto this. “When everyone caught wind of my videos, they’re like, ‘Oh my God, she’s so natural. Everything about her is so natural,'” she says. She does have a bit of a secret, though — she loves long nails.
“I like my nails to always be clean,” she says. “Also, I like really long nails, like Cardi B. But I don’t want to scare anyone yet, so I’ll start small. I’ll start with the short nails, and then I’ll go longer, and then that’s when I’ll be like, ‘Boom, guys. This has always been me. This is literally my life.'”
As far as beauty goes, the thing she pays most attention to is her skin, which she is vocal about loving. It’s refreshing to hear someone talk about themselves so positively, and not once mention anything about themselves they don’t like. “Literally, I love my skin, because it just… It’s always so nice. That’s why I always drink water, because the idea of my skin just breaking out, for me, I dread it. I don’t put any products on my skin because they feel weird on my skin,” she says. She does mention that she uses petroleum jelly as a moisturizer, but, get this — she only uses water to wash her face. Her skin is just perfect, all on its own.
