Q: What is your hair story? What kind of hair styles have you rocked, before embracing your natural hair?
A: I've stopped using relaxers during my second year of uni, I didn't like the way my hair looked with it so I decided to stop. I also wanted to see what my real texture looked like. So I decided to inform myself, I've started looking at blogs, magazines, videos... to know which products I could use and which styles I could wore. I didn't want to do a big chop, so I transitioned for about 2 years, I mainly wore weaves and every time I took one of I would trim my hair until I reached a size which I thought was alright to cut off all the relaxed ends. Now, I've been fully natural for 3 years and I'm not going back!
Q: What are three products you can't live without for nurturing/styling your hair?
A: I can't live without coconut oil, Kera care edge tamer and castor oil. I love oils! I use coconut oil for moisturizing and shine and castor oil for hair growth. Kera care edge tame is the best edge tamer I've found.
Q: What would you say to someone who's thinking about embracing their natural hair, but scared about being rejected in various parts of their lives?
A: Just do it! There is so many things you can do with natural hair, you might be surprised. If you don't like it you can still go back to relaxers.
