3 Questions with Jhené Aiko!- Natural Hair Celeb

Remember Jhené Aiko? Formerly signed to Epic records, she was cross promoted with B2K, opening for them on tour. Quick fact-- My sister, a die hard B2K fan (don't kill me Syl), actually saw her in concert when they came to St. Louis. Due to personal reasons and the desire to finish her education, she never released a record.

Fastfoward a few years, and she's back on the scene... with a new mixtape that's generating a lot of buzz! Featuring collaborations with Kanye, Drake and Miguel, hopefully this time, she's here to stay.

I recently caught up with her and learned:

1.) She's 100% natural and has been for much of her life. But once, when she was younger, around 15, she got a Just For Me relaxer on her edges just because her aunt was a hair stylist and she wanted to try something new.

2.) She is the product queen! A self proclaimed product junkie! She will try any and every product. It's what she will "spend her last $5 on." Right now she is wearing her hair curly because it is too hot in LA to straighten it, but she raves over Mixed Chicks and Biosilk. She also uses the entire Dermalogica skin care line.

3.) Her hair is super curly and when she wants to wear it straight, she blows it out and uses a ceramic flat iron. She doesn't like the bone straight look and allows the mist of the ocean to help her achieve a more natural look.



What do you think of the mixtape?

I remember Jhene! I loved her so much, my face song was no L.O.V.E. She is definitely very talented and beautiful. I wish her all the best. Isn't she cousins with Lil Fizz from B2K? I used to be all up on them message boards back in the day.

Much love Jhene, thanks for doing the feature Nik

I read that that was a myth... a rumor started to help with promotion. Not sure what is true, lol.

Her voice is very pretty. And my hubby is humming the song in the background, lol. (Probably has to do with Drake being on it).

Yea!! I'm so excited to see her here! Her mixtape is #thatruth !! I've been listening to it since May, and it was my soundtrack while I studied for the Bar Exam! Her music is amazing, and she really should have sold this mixtape instead of releasing it for free. I'm gonna stop gushing now, but seeing her on CN has really made my day!
