Talk to me about your natural hair journey (how did it start, challenges and experiences etc.)
I’ve always had long hair so in 2008 I cut my hair into a very short style to change up my look. I was still using CREAMY CRACK ! Well in 2011 I decided to let my hair grow back. So my natural hair journey began. I struggled with twist outs, bantu knots, braid outs and everything you could possibly imagine. Shortly after I was introduced to my best friend! Miss Wash-and-go. Wash-and-go was my best friend. As my hair grew longer I wanted color so I went blonde and never went back. Like every natural the daily struggles of finding the right products can be tricky but its worth it completely.
What was your process in learning how to accept your natural tresses?
I had to accept that I have very fizzy hair. Humidity is not my friend. But, I learned that products will help but I can’t ever rid myself of frizz forever. I assured myself that my hair is fizzy but its mine and its healthy and I’m lucky and blessed enough to have hair to take care of.
What is your hair-type, and what are your go-to natural hair care products?
I have 3b/3c hair little to no shrinkage at all. My go to natural products are Shea moisture, Carols daughter, and Mixed chicks. I love coconut oil, castro oil and avocado oil. Palmers protein treatment are GOLD !
What’s your style, how do you rock your natural hair?
My style is very free it changes often like the seasons, but I always wear my fro out or up in a pony puff.
