Naturals To Know: Jennifer
1 How long have you been natural? Did you transition? And if so, how?
2 Describe your hair in three words.
Strong. Unpredictable. Beautiful.
3 How are you currently wearing your hair? What is your hair routine? What products do you use?
Right now I’m in love with twist outs. I can wear them for up to 2 weeks and then I swoop it over into a side puff when it gets older. I don’t do much to my hair. I don’t like spending a lot of money on hair products and I usually find something I like and stick to it for a while. I only shampoo when I absolutely need to. I use Shea It Again hair conditioner by Beautiful Brown Baby Doll and I also use Motions conditioner.
As for butters, I use Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter moisturizer and Shea-Lovely Intensive Therapy and Leave-in, also by Beautiful Brown Baby Doll. Both leave my hair so soft and moisturized. I will also do a blow-out maybe once a month for certain styles.
4 Name one thing that you learned about your hair after becoming a natural.
It’s more than just a hairstyle, it’s a lifestyle. You have to be ready to live it or it might not be for you.
5 Where else can we find you online?
6 A final word of advice for new naturals?
You have to be patient. Hair growth is not the same for everyone. Your hair texture is not the same as your friend’s, so try not to compare. Embrace your hair for what it is and work with what you were given. It’s not a contest. Just have fun with your hair and be free.
