Have you always been natural?
Why did you decide to go natural?
I decided to go natural with the sense of joining the bandwagon but with time, my perspective about that changed.
When did you make the decision?
Did you Big Chop straightaway or transition?
I was on Jerry curl before I transitioned to natural hair.
What did your family and friends think about your decision?
They felt it was normal because I have always experimented with my hair.
What has been your greatest challenge so far while managing your hair? How have you managed it/them?
My greatest challenge with my natural hair is shrinkage and the fact that my hair is so thick , I have been able to manage that by hydrating my hair with my spray bottle filled with water and almond oil.
What do you love most about your hair?
I love my hairline.
Have you had a ‘bad hair’ day? Tell us about it.
Sometimes I do. Especially after trying hard to slick your hair and put it in place only for it to look rough after few hours.
What are those products/accessories you can’t do without?
My Olori shampoo , Afrobynature conditioner and my Shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie.
What’s your go to style?
Protective styling and twists outs.
Do you style your hair yourself every time or you go to salons?
I style my natural hair myself for now , i only go to the saloon for protective styling.
What’s your current regimen?
For now it’s just the typical wash and go.
Has going natural influenced other aspects of your life?
What would you like to tell someone considering going natural?
Consistency , love and patience are the main keys. All in all whatever you choose to do, do it for yourself and not because everyone is doing it.
