1 How long have you been natural? Did you transition? And if so, how?

I’ve been natural almost 4 years. I did transition; however, I didn’t know that’s what I was doing. I kept putting my hair in braids and sew-in weaves. I would keep them in for 2-3 months and then cut the straggly ends off whenever I would redo my hair. After a year of doing this I had a head full of natural hair.


2 Describe your hair in three words.

Unique, inspiring, thickalicious.

3 How are you currently wearing your hair? What is your hair routine? What products do you use?

I’m currently wearing a raggedy twist-out, lol. My routine varies but my constants are:

  • prepoo
  • shampoo or co-wash
  • leave in
  • style

During the spring/summer I consistently wash-n-go, and during the fall/winter, I wear twists,twist-outs, or protective styles if I can muster up the time needed. I use a lot of products from various lines, but I always keep ayurvedic, clay, and deep treatments in my stash at all times.

4 Name one thing that you learned about your hair after becoming a natural.

I learned that I really didn’t like myself unless I had straight hair or my hair was flowing past my neck. For years I used my hair as a way to validate my beauty to the world. As a natural I accept me for me, no ifs, ands, or buts.

My hair doesn’t hang or flip, but what it does do is allow the world to see ME before anything else.
