Were you a transitioner or a Big Chopper? What was your journey like?
I was a transitioner. I wasn’t brave enough to rock a short cut. Now looking back at it, I wish I did so that I could have enjoyed my hair at that length.
Had you always embraced your texture?
When I was younger my hair was gorgeous; my mom didn’t put any chemicals in it. Just a wash and go. As I got toward middle school, I went to a predominately white school and wished my hair was naturally straight like theirs, so I convinced my mom to give me a perm.
How did family and friends react to your decision to go natural? What was your response to them?
Family and friends were definitely supportive. Especially my husband. I actually did a video with him and how he felt about me going natural on my YouTube. We do a bunch of natural hair parodies on there.
Describe your hair (fine or coarse, thin or thick, highly porous, low, etc.)
My hair is thick and highly porous
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done to your hair?
Craziest thing I have ever done to my hair was take craft scissors to it and cut it all off. I was so tired of the transition and I was ready to do it. Let’s back up a little. My best friend who is a hair stylist was at my house and I told her I was ready to cut my permed ends off. She told me she didn’t have her stylist scissors on her and I had to wait until next time I saw her for her to cut it. Well that didn’t work for me. Against her advice I took full craft scissors to my hair and chopped it off leaving me with nothing but split ends!
What’s your biggest hair related regret?
Getting a perm. If I had just followed my mom’s advice, I would have embraced it a long time ago!
What’s your current hair routine? How often do you wash, condition, and style? Favoriteproducts! Deets!
