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.

Can we get some TWA love?

Searching around the net time and time again I bump into a couple natural hair ladies; as it begins to sweep the nation and world more and more women are embracing their natural curls, kinks, and coils. Of course almost every natural haired woman wants long healthy hair and has a “hair crush”.

If you are not certain what a “hair crush” exactly is, I am here to enlighten you.

Hair Crush: Person whose natural hair entices you so much your crushing on their hair. These persons usually have long flowing curls or a really big fro in which the crusher would like for their hair to look the same as or similar to.

Hmmmm…

I appreciate all of the ladies with the long curly natural hair but, I DONT appreciate that the TWA ladies are not recognized as much. Many of those long hair, big fro ladies had to start somewhere which was that TWA . Why don’t we recognize their hair journeys and not their hair lengths.

To help motivate the women rocking those TWA’s I have put together a collection of TWA Hair Crushes…..Enjoy!
