What made you go natural? How long have you been natural?
To be honest I got tired of relaxers and I had an incident where my hairstylist left the relaxer in too long and burnt off a big patch in the back of my hair…I had to rock low buns for two months for that sucker to grow out…I have been natural for 2 years now.
Describe your hair. (texture, behavior, thickness, etc)
My hair is thick and kinky curly. When wet it looks like I have long curly/coily hair, but when dry the shrinkage is so real!!!! My hair goes from 100 to 0 real quick..it shrinks to more than half of its actual length.
What is your monthly routine for caring for your hair? (What products and practices do you use?)
Well at the start of my hair journey I used a lot of unnecessary products because I saw everyone else using them..however now all I do is wash and deep condition my hair once every two weeks and put in some two strand twits.
My shampoo is Apple Cider Vinegar
Deep conditioner is Beautiful Bextures Leave in Olive Miracle
My oil of choice is Boconut Oil
And finally the Beautiful Textures Moisture Butter
What does being natural mean to you?
Being natural means not giving in to the “norms”of society and not being ashamed to let my kinks fly.
Do you use any heat on your hair? (Why or why not?)
No I don’t. I find that when I use heat on my hair for some reason it gets thicker and harder to work with.
Do you do any protective styling? If so how often and what are some of your favorite styles?
Yes I do about 80%of the time…I do box braids,crotchet braids,Senegalese twists….but the one I do most of the time are my two strand twists.
What is the hardest part about being natural? What is your favorite thing about being natural?
The hardest part about being natural is wash day lol it takes so long and my hair doesn’t dry quickly so it’s a long process.

My favorite thing about being natural is my shrinkage because I keep people guessing all the time.

What is your favorite hairstyle?
My favorite hairstyle is a puff

Do you have any funny hair stories? What’s the most outrageous thing someone has said about your kinks?

What is one piece of advice you have for other people who want to start embracing their kinks?
There are going to be people who look down on the idea of going natural but forget the negative natsiez and go for it you would love the outcome.
