How long have you been natural?
I have been natural for 4 years
What made you decide to go natural?
After a routine relaxer touch-up from my hair stylist at the time, I received severe burns in my scalp. I promised that I’d never put myself through such pain and torture ever again. I had no idea what I was doing in the beginning.
What is your current relationship with your hair?
I am absolutely in love with my tresses; My hair brings me so much joy.
What is the trick or technique are you most thankful for finding out about?
Flat-twisting in place of your normal twist out. The volume and body is AMAZING– plus, you won’t have to do much separating because you’ve already created small sections from the flat twists. The key to a nice full “twist-out”
What specific products can you not live without?
In regards to my natural hair, I can not live without my hair hooks[+]. They’re basically ponytail holders, split in half with clips added on each end. There is always a couple of them at the bottom of my bag.
What advice would you give to someone considering going natural?
Do what your heart tells you to do. If others around you aren’t digging your new look–pay them no mind. My experience was totally rejuvenating, I felt beautiful. As odd as it may seem, I look at life differently.
