Were you a transitioner or a Big Chopper? What was your journey like?
I’ve always been natural. I only flat ironed my hair almost EVERY day! (Yikes) I just never decided to embrace my curls until about 2 years ago.
Had you always embraced your texture?
No, my texture is really curly, so being in school I got called names like Jerry curl, or Michael Jackson.
How did family and friends react to your decision to go natural? What was your response to them?
They loved the idea!
Describe your hair (fine or coarse, thin or thick, highly porous, low, etc.)
It’s thick and super soft.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done to your hair?
I went to Super Cuts to get a bob and my hair was like really long. When the stylist asked hard or soft, I replied hard and she cut my hair so short I cried.
What’s your biggest hair related regret?
Dyeing it green! I rinsed it black a few days ago and the green is back.
What’s your current hair routine? How often do you wash, condition, and style? Favorite products! Deets!
I wash my hair every 5 days or so. I deep condition it every 2 weeks. I love coconut oil & black castor oil, As I Am leave in conditioner and Miss Jessie’s hair moisturizer.
What’s your favorite hairstyle? Where do you get hairstyle inspiration?
Perm rod sets. SO many YouTube gurus inspired me. They all looked great!
Who is your curl crush?
How do you maintain your hair at night?
Ponytail and silk bonnet to maintain my natural curl pattern, or flat twist.
How do you maintain healthy length?
Trim split ends monthly.
What’s the best thing about being natural?
The best thing about being natural is being completely comfortable the way God made me, getting compliments on how nice my hair is, being able to scratch my scalp and not pat it like crazy.
