When did you decide to go natural?
I went natural two years ago. I did the big chop.

Why did you decide to go natural?
I decided to go natural because i needed a change. I had been thinking about it for quite some time.

What are your go-to products?
I use shea moisture products and carol’s daughter hair butter when i need to slick down my edges. Works wonders!!!

What are your favorite natural hairstyles?
I wash my hair every two weeks or so. I give myself a hot oil treatment everytime i wash it and then i twist it up and wear it twisted at least a week.

How do you maintain your hairstlyes?
It’s not too difficult to maintain hairstyles, but in fairness, i’m the type to walk out the door and not think twice about my hair once i’ve styled it in the morning. People often touch my hair or run their fingers thout it (uninvited), so i don’t spend too much time thinking about how it looks.

Name three things you enjoy about being natural.
Three things i enjoy about being natural is that i never have to worry about the rain, i can finally enjoy my hair texture, and i can wear my hair funky messy styles that don’t take much effort.

Do you have advice for women who are considering going natural?
The advice i have for women who want to go natural is to have fun with it and understand that the beauty is in the journey.
