Tell us a little about yourself and your hair journey.
My name is Brittany (@mrspennycandy on IG). I am 27 years old, a mother of 2 beautiful kids, a stepmother to 1, and I have been married for 8 years. I have been natural since 2005 and I am so happy that I did. My mother gave me my first relaxer at age 7 because I was severely “tender headed”. It didn’t work because every time I had to get a touch up, there were tears and I would run to the sink to rinse that stuff out! I’m so glad those days are over!

How long have you been natural? Have you always embraced your curls?
I stopped relaxing in 2005, but I didn’t start wearing my hair in its natural state until 2011. My mother would always encourage me to wear my hair curly, but I was so used to flat ironing. She showed me articles and a bunch of pictures of other beautiful naturals on curlynikki.com and I became obsessed. I never imagined that natural hair could be so beautiful. I used to think my natural hair was ugly because it wasn’t the long silky type, but over time I realized that I just didn’t understand how to care for it. All it needed was some TLC.

When We Judge Ourselves Most Harshly

"A writer – and, I believe, all persons – must think that whatever happens to him or her is a resource. All things have been given to us for a purpose, and an artist must feel this more intensely. All that happens to us, including our misfortunes, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art." ~Jorge Luis Borges

I was young and I was a new single mom and I was late on my rent every single month.

First apartment. First real responsibilities. Living with a roommate. Trying to figure out this grownup life. In my mind, failing terribly.

Shawn is Naturally Glam!



Tell me about yourself!
I’ve been a stay at home mom the last two years and have been selling health and wellness products all the while. I just added fitness and beauty products to the mix. I used to be a total chemical junkie. I love having found a bunch of ways to kick the chemical habit to make my home safer and family
healthier. Little by little!

Were you a transitioner or a Big Chopper? What was your journey like? 
I did the Big Chop - TWICE! The first time I only managed to stay natural for a couple of years. I just think I thought it was easier to relax my curls, even if I rarely ever blew it out straight. The second time I read more about the how and the why of embracing my natural curls and realized nothing could be easier than accepting my unprocessed hair and joining a community of empowered natural beauties! I’ve stuck with it ever since.
