How long have you been natural?
I have been natural for a total of four years.
What made you decide to go natural?
Based on a recommendation from my hair stylist, I began a transition back to natural in 2007. I stopped relaxing my hair, yet continued wearing weaves. After a year, my hair was totally natural. Yet no one ever saw it, because I continued wearing 14-inch weaves. In 2008, I moved to a remote area in Arkansas, and it became a challenge to find a stylist that would work with my natural hair, so I relaxed it again. In 2010, I moved back to Atlanta. My hair was in terrible condition. My strands were weak and I was wearing weaves and wigs to hide the damage. After a while I decided that it was time to do the big chop. I wanted to see the real me, without any chemicals, or weaves/wigs.
While natural, what is the one biggest regret /mistake you made?
When I first went natural in 2007…I wish I would have stuck with it…opposed to going back to a relaxer.
What is the craziest hairstyle or treatment you have done to your hair?
The craziest hairstyle was the Mohawk….it was fun while it lasted.
What is your current relationship with your hair?
I love my hair, I always find myself touching it…and making love to it…lol…really!
What is the trick or technique are you most thankful for finding out about?
I am really glad I found out about Taliah Waajid’s Curly Curl Cream… I love how it defines my waves, and eliminates frizz.
What specific products can you not live without?
Taliah Waajid’s Curly Curl Cream
What advice would you give to someone considering going natural?
I would tell them…welcome back to utopia….where you are not trying to live up to someone else’s standard of beauty. Being natural allows you to define your own standard of beauty, with what God has given you.
