-How long have you been natural?
I have been completely natural since 2000.

-What is your regimen?
I shampoo and deep condition weekly.I straighten my hair every two weeks with my hot comb and oven. On the weeks that I don't press my hair, I will blow dry and wear it kinky straight. And sometimes I will wear it in its natural state, especially when the weather is humid.I apply Extra Virgin Coconut Oil to my hair ends, hairline once a week.I do a deep, deep condition every 8-12 weeks with Aphogee.

-What is the one thing you'd tell a newbie to help her on her journey?
Do not jump on bandwagons; educate yourself about your hair type; and keep your hair regimen as simple as possible.

-How do you maintain length?
I maintain length by taking care of my hair from the inside out: by drinking lots of water and eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. A healthy diet produces strong, sturdy hair strands. And I'm very gentle with my hair ends. I keep them moisturized; which keeps them brittle-free. And brittle-free ends don't break and split off.

-What's the best thing about being naturally glamorous?!
The best part for me are the options that my natural hair provides:I like being able to wear my hair silky, smooth straight for a few days, and then the next few days wear a big, kinky-straight afro, or be bold and step out wearing my hair in a tight shrunken, natural twist-out.I feel healthy, free and sexy and I feel like I have nothing to hide when I let people see all the ways I can style my natural hair.

Ladies feel free to visit me at my webzine I will have lots of hair and health/fitness tips and updates weekly. And links to my online fitness challenges that are geared toward black women.
