My name is Rhonda Ray and I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. I have a B.A. in Radio, TV and film. I’m a frotographer and I created one of the first Afrocentric web series that starred 4 Natural Hair Actresses called “Afro City”
How long have you been natural? Have you always embraced your coils?
I’ve been natural for 13 years. I haven’t always embraced my coils and I was so excited to get my first perm for my 6th grade graduation.
What motivated you to transition? Were you a transitioner or a Big Chopper& why? I went to the barber and told them to chop off all the perm to the new growth, because the perm was starting to break my hair off and irritate my scalp. I had friends perming my hair to save money and they over processed my hair. I left the barber shop with a TWA. Never knew it would grow out so much to where I could have so much fun with up do’s, Twist outs, Braid outs, Afro Puffs and Fros.
