Hi! My name is Fabulous Jade! I was a transitioner for sure! I wore braids a lot! One day in the summer of 2010 I was so over braids. I decided to wear my natural hair and that was the best decision I ever made.
Had you always embraced your texture?
I actually have always embraced my texture. I decided early in this journey there was only one me. And that concept has helped me love myself as a whole.
How did family and friends react to your decision to go natural?
My grandmother, mother, and sister were all natural before I started my journey, so I had a lot of support and no insecurities about my decision.
Describe your hair (fine or coarse, thin or thick, highly porous, low, etc.)
My hair is coarse, curly, and thick.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done to your hair?
I dyed my hair CRAYON RED! I really thought it was dope at the time. But hey, it's just hair!!!
What’s your biggest hair related regret?
I don't trim nearly enough!
I wash my hair twice a month. I condition my hair with coconut oil and olive oil together daily. Most times I just put it on right after I shower while my hair is a little damp. As far as products, besides the two above, I really enjoy blue magic leave in conditioner, and if I am not using SheaMoisture, I use Taliah Waajid products.
What’s your favorite hairstyle? Where do you get hairstyle inspiration?
My favorite hairstyle is a twist out for sure! I get my hairstyle inspiration from my mood and however my curl pattern wants to act that day!
OMG!!!! Tracee Ellis Ross is my curl crush. I just love her JOAN hair!
How do you maintain your hair at night?
I usually part it in fours, plat the sections, put on a silk bonnet, and go!
How do you maintain healthy length?
I don't use much heat at all. I also found protective styles help as well.
What's the best thing about being natural?
The best thing is showing the world MY TRUE BEAUTY!
