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.

How long have you been natural?
Four years

Did you always have dreads or did you transition?I transitioned after having my natural hair out for a year.

Why did you choose that route? When I first began transitioning to natural, I didn’t considered locking my hair; I just wanted big, kinky-curly hair. After a year of being natural, I began wearing twists, and I really liked the look. I also wanted the changes going on inside of me to be reflected on the outside.

What inspired you to have locs?
The year I started them, 2008, I had many changes in my life, including graduating from college. Because I felt I was transitioning into another level in my life and becoming a new me, so to speak, I wanted that change to reflect on the outside, too. So, I decided to loc my hair.

What has kept you motivated to remain with your locs? One reason is because they’re super low maintenance. I’m kind of lazy when it comes to doing my hair (lol), so locs are perfect for me. I also love the way they look on me.

What are two(2) natural hair products that you just can’t live without? Why? I don’t use many products, but I’ll say extra virgin olive oil diluted with water (in a spray bottle) and White Rain Tropical Coconut Hydrating Conditioner.

What is your favorite way to wear your hair?                                                        Braid-out

What do you love about your natural hair? I love that it’s low-maintenance, unique and that it’s my very own God-given hair.

What do you dislike about it? I have a dry scalp, so I often get dandruff. I haven’t quite figured out how to get rid of it yet, but the olive oil helps.

What tip(s) would you recommend to someone who wants to become natural, is transitioning, or needs advice about natural hair? I would say be patient; stressing about your length or whatever you’re worrying about won’t make your hair grow longer or faster. Look at photos, blogs and websites if you need advice or inspiration – just keep in mind that everyone’s hair is unique. And lastly, love and cherish the beautiful hair the Creator has blessed you with!

CurlBox July Fly

Got my July CurlBox and yet again full sized products!!! Now tell me that ain’t fly! We have been getting so many full sized items. We gotta love Myleik for this.

This months box was pretty simple, well at least for me. So let me give you the scoop, three random people got Huetiful hair steamers. Poor me was having dreams back to back about winning one from my July CurlBox. It didn’t happen but, I’m telling you it has to. I will soon be united with my Huetiful. Congrats to those three lucky folks, enjoy it for me!

The products in this box were:

Motions Naturally You: Moisturizing Cleanser & Smoothing Conditioner

Shea Radiance: Nourishing Hair Repair Cream

Jane Carter Solution: Condition and Sculpt

Lusters: Pink Classic Light

….. And those three random you win cards with gold bottle…..Hmmmm Le Sigh

Lol

Now lets talk about the catalogue with the beautiful Mae better known as NaturalChica, isn’t she looking fab, fly. What I liked most about this month’s catalogue was what was written inside. It was all about taking risks. I found that this issue was definitely speaking to me. Thanks to Myleik I’m feeling extra motivated. You may see some changes around here on Aphrodite Kinks *wink wink*

I leave you with this “Whatever you think, think the opposite”.

Love your Kinks,

How long have you been natural?

I have been 100% for almost 1 year!

Did you transition or do the Big Chop?

I transitioned.

Why did you choose that route?

I chose to transition because I didn’t know what my Natural Hair texture was! I wanted to get reacquainted with my curls and do plenty of research before choosing whether I wanted to continue transitioning or to do the Big Chop.

How long did you transition?

I transitioned for 6 months and then I did the Big Chop! During the transitioning process I used heat on my hair to blend the two textures. I didn’t know much about heat damage at the time so when I did my BC, I had MAJOR heat damage. I then did a 2nd Big Chop and cut my Natural hair which was about 6 inches at the time down to 1/2 inch!!!! 

What inspired you to have natural hair?

My children! I have 4 kids and they ALL have beautiful Natural Curls! 

What has kept you motivated to remain natural?

My children & my Hubby! They have been my strongest support system! When you surround yourself with positive and supportive people whether it’s family or friends – It makes you feel that much more positive and supportive of yourself!  

What are two(2) natural hair products that you just can’t live without? Why?

Herbal Essences – Hello Hydration Conditioner and Avocado Butter. 

HE – HH because of the slip it gives for my detangling sessions and     Avocado Butter because I love the way it makes my hair feel and it keeps my hair moisturized.

What is your favorite way to wear your hair?

I love to wear my hair in a PonyPuff and in a Wash & Go! I like other    styles as well but as a working mother of 4 kids, I like to go with the easiest and less time consuming styles! 

What do you love about your natural hair?

I LOVE the versatility and beauty of it! 

What do you dislike about it?

I don’t dislike anything about my hair!  If I had to dislike something, it would only be the amount of time it can take to do my hair. I wish I had more time. LOL!

What tip(s) would you recommend to someone who wants to become natural, is transitioning, or needs advice about natural hair?

If it seems that you run into a dead end and say “I Can’t”, take a breather and reassure yourself that You Can! Ask for help. Ask a family member, consult with a Natural Hair Beautician, ask a friend, search websites, look at YouTube videos and most of all, DON’T QUIT!
