What are your thoughts about natural hair?
I think Natural hair is healthy and flexible, its healthy because you don't have to use many artificial chemicals, and its flexible because you can style it in different interesting ways.
When/why did you decide to go natural?
I went natural about 10 months ago. I decided to go Natural because I have a very unusual soft hair, it wasn't just normal, because it looked and felt like a baby's hair, each time I go to the saloon, the stylist always get scared to relax my hair because she felt it would get burnt. My hair stylist finally advised me to go Natural for a while to see if my hair would gain strength. Behold the birth of my Natural hair.
Did you do a BC or you transitioned?
I just trimmed the ends of my hair, then started transitioning.
What was the experience like?
Very interesting and adventurous
What was/is your biggest fear about going Natural?
My initial fear was that I wont be able to fix hair extensions and bring out my hair at the front, but as soon as I discovered many beautiful things I can do with my Natural hair, my fear vanished
Do you have a regimen you stick to? What is it like?
Yeah, as soon as I take out my hair extension, I deep condition my hair, then do corn rows or thread my hair so it can stretch,and I always spray my hair with water and coconut oil for one month before I fix or braid. This has helped me keep my edge safe. On few occasions I do protein treatment.
What emotional struggles, if any, have you faced since going natural?
I haven't faced any.
Do you think you are in it for the long haul or is it just a phase?
I am so in it for a VERY long time, as long as forever *I pray* #TeamNatural
There are people that definitely have negative comments about you hair, how do you deal with that?
I have never gotten any negative comments, infact I get positive comments and people always ask me for tips on how to go Natural, even people that use to call me rat hair before I started transitioning, are now amazed with the beautiful turnout of my Natural hair. My hair stylist is so happy with my hair now
What's your must have product and accessory?
My must have product is Shea butter, edge control and a good leave-in conditioner. My must have hair accessory is a hair band and a bobby pin
What is your go-to style?
My go to style is a mini/pineapple afro or a bun
What advice do you have for anyone just going natural?
Be patient, Love your hair and avoid too many chemicals
