Being in New Orleans left my hair super dry due to the humidity. But I used @designessentials products that were in the gift bag and it gave me one the the best twist outs ever! My hair is super soft, defined and shiny! @takeya_monique

Glam Idol, Sheriden- '...cutting it off was empowering.'




Tell me a little about yourself and your hair journey.
My name is Sheriden. I’m 23 years old, and I’m a writer who’s all about being transparent, authentic, and putting good, real vibes out into the world. I blog at The Indie Byline where I collect life moments – both big and small, go on the best foodie adventures, and fumble at love one boy at a time lol. I also have a YouTube channel where I am curating love lessons through real talks with people sharing their views on love and self love. My natural hair journey started 4 years ago when I decided I just wasn’t about that relaxed hair life no mo’. Since then I have grown, I have chopped, I have dyed, and now I have grown some more lol.

 How long have you been natural?
4 years strong! It is annoying at times but I wouldn’t change it for the world. There’s so much personality and versatility with black hair that I love and that goes doubly with being natural. I am actually thinking about getting starter locs this winter…

Real Life is Not Picture Perfect



It's always been important to me to be thought of as pretty and polished and nice to look at.  Sounds vain, but as a woman, perhaps you can relate.  I talked about the roots of this a bit here.

With that said, I work diligently to position myself as a champion for shameless self-possession.  I celebrate all the many layers.  And some of those layers ain't pretty.  Feeling pretty is like happiness.  It's a choice and a feeling that comes and goes depending on what's going on.

Dannielle Is Naturally Glam!


Were you a long term or short term transitioner, and why?
I transitioned for seven months before doing my big chop. My aim was to grow my natural hair to a length that would allow me to create a ponytail, but as you can well imagine, 7 months of transitioning hair was not long enough for my desired up-do.

When did you BC? What was your initial reaction to your natural hair?
I big chopped on Dec 31, 2014. After I big chopped I was not sure what to make of my hair since I had never really handled it in its natural state. I had no idea what my true hair texture was like and what it needed to thrive. Nevertheless, I was excited to learn about my hair.
