Naturals To Know: ~L
1 How long have you been a natural? Did you transition? If so, how?
I had my last relaxer in 1999. I didn’t really have a plan. I wore extensions for awhile. Then I did my big chop in November of 2000 and started locs. I big chopped again in 2005. I’ve had loose hair since then.
2 Describe your hair in three words.
Puffy, soft, and fun.
3 How are you currently wearing your hair? What is your hair routine? What products do you use?
I am currently wearing my hair in a short tapered cut. Short in the back, more on top. I love it. It’s been so long since I had short hair. I forgot how much simpler it can be.
Since I cut it, I’ve just been wearing it in a wash and go. Right now, I am using a lot of different products (for product review purposes) including my homemade ones.
4 Name one thing that you learned about your hair after becoming a natural.
I learned that my hair could be very strong and healthy.
5 Where else can we find you online?
6 A final word of advice for new naturals?
Have fun with your hair. I see a lot of new naturals stressing out about their hair because it isn’t the texture they want or the length that they want. Let that go. Enjoy YOUR hair.
