How long have you been natural?
I have been natural for 3 years.
What made you decide to go natural?
I went natural because I was bored with my hair as it was…flat and lifeless. It was long and thick. But I had to spend hours in the salon under the dryer to get voluminous curls. I decided to see what my natural hair could do. And wow, was that the best decision ever!!
While natural, what is the one biggest regret /mistake you made?
It would be going to the salon for a trim and leaving with my 2nd big chop! >:-( . I learned from then on to style and trim my own hair.
What is your current relationship with your hair?
I LOVE my hair! If my hair is not healthy and looking good, I can’t focus until it is! Maybe I’m a little obsessed…? A healthy obsession though! LOL
What is the trick or technique are you most thankful for finding out about?
The Curly Girl Method has helped with my hair’s health tremendously! I also have learned to finger detangle. And as a result, I have much less shedding!
What specific products can you not live without?
Tresseme Naturals Conditioner, As I Am Coconut Cowash, Paul Mitchell The Conditioner, Keracare Naturals Line, Eco Styler Gel, and Jojoba Oil
I’d say seriously look into it! Watch Youtube videos, read blogs, and educate yourself as you transition. I’d let them know the difficulties one can encounter, as well as the ignorant comments they WILL hear. But I would definitely let them know how it was the best decision I’ve ever made concerning my hair and why. It was worth it all!
