How long have you been a natural? Did you transition?

I have been a natural since July 2011. I tried to transition but one night my relaxed hair got in a fight with my natural hair and I had no choice but to cut off the relaxed hair 🙂


What is your hair routine?

Sundays I wash my hair. Monday – Friday I wear it in a protective style, and on Saturdays I let it out to play. Sunday I start the process over again.


Do you have particular products you swear by?

Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie, Qhemet Biologics Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee and ATON Natty Cupuacu and Rhassoul Deep Conditioner.

Describe your natural hair in three words.

Black, beautiful, and fun.


What inspired you to start your website, 4c Hair Chick?

At the time I went natural it was hard to find women in media with hair like mine. I started 4c Hair Chick to give tightly curled naturals a platform. A place where we are celebrated, a place to find out about other vloggers and bloggers with tightly curled hair, and a place where, above all, we could fellowship and be inspired by one another.


Where can fans connect with you online?

You can find me on my website, 4c Hair Chick,
on Facebook,
and on Instagram.


Any advice for new naturals?

It’s OK if you try something and it doesn’t turn out like the video or the picture. The journey requires trial and error. In time and with practice you’ll learn your hair.

    I love the 4c styles. It’s nice to see women with my type of hair. I am tried of searching for 4c haircuts or style and the only pop up is women who have a nice grade of hair.
