Model De'Anne Roye

Name: De'Anne Roye 

Q: What is your hair story? What kind of hair styles have you rocked, before embracing your natural hair?
A: My hair story is that relaxer were not working. My hair just kept breaking, so I decide to end the process. I have actually had two big chops because of heat damage. I rocked a bob, extensions, and short hairstyles like Halle Berry's do.

Q: When and why did you decide to start wearing your hair naturally?
A: I went natural about 3 and 1/2 years ago. I went natural because I was tired of the damage relaxer's were causing, and wanted a fresh start.

Q: Did you have any big fears about going back to your natural texture?
A: Yes, I did not know how to style my hair natural; I have not seen my natural hair since I was 9 years old. I'm model and I was worried I was not going to be able to get any work, but it actually turned out to be a blessing because I booked bigger jobs like Cititrends, and Walmart and other print retailers. So I just stopped being in fear and started embracing my hair.

Q: What are three products you can't live without for nurturing/styling your hair?
A: I have to have Shandy's Whipped Cream Hair Moisturizer, Carol's Daughter Hair Smoothie, and Wide Tooth Comb.

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: I would say people will accept your hair if you’re confident with your look, and practice makes perfect, so keep practicing and you will get better at it :).

Q: How can we keep up with you and your journey i.e. blog, twitter, facebook, fotki, tumblr, personal or professional website?
A: I would go to or Thank you.
