How long have you been natural? 2 years
Did you transition or do the Big Chop? Big Chop
Why did you choose that route? I figured I did every hairstyle/color in the world and perms burned my hair so bad that it was time to do what was right. BIG CHOP
What inspired you to have natural hair? I’ve always had a love for natural hair, and watching different YouTube channels made me appreciate all textures of hair. I figured why not see what my hair can be like and experience the Love of the Natural Look.
What has kept you motivated to remain natural? I get numerous compliments on a daily basis and I feel it’s easier than a perm. In addition, there are a million and one hairstyles that can be done with this beautiful mane. There’s no turning back to the creamy crack
What are two(2) natural hair products that you just can’t live without? Why? Olive Oil and Kinky Curly
What is your favorite way to wear your hair?I Looovve high pony tails it gives me that high fashion look I love
What do you love about your natural hair?I love that you can have a different look everyday if you want. You can go from a big afro to two twist, or even braids it’s amazing
What do you dislike about it? The only thing that can drive me nuts is the shrinkage at times
What tip(s) would you recommend to someone who wants to become natural, is transitioning, or needs advice about natural hair? Own it! What I mean by that statement is you shouldn’t care what anyone says and don’t believe the hype about good hair this good hair that. There is no such thing, everyone has good hair just a different texture so embrace what you have and work it! Always keep your hair moisturized.
