When and why did you go natural?
I went natural 2012.I went natural because I wanted long healthy hair. Which has been a dream of mine since I was little girl. I was on You Tube and saw Glamtwins334 videos. It was like I found gold. My prayers were answered. lol
Did you transition or big cop?
I transitioned for 4 months but I couldn't deal with two textures. So I chopped off most of my hair and to be honest I hated the way looked. My hair has never that short and I had to get use to my natural texture but I fell in love with my hair.
What is your hair type?
I have a mixture of 3C, 4A, 4B
How did others (friends, family, and colleagues) react to your decision to go natural?
Wow, my mom wasn't feeling the whole natural thing at first. She kept telling me to relax my hair. She loves my hair now. Everyone else loved my hair.
What is your current regimen?
Well because it’s autumn. I'm doing protective styling for the six months until spring. I have Box Braids in at the moment. But I still care of my hair. I take down my braids after a month then I wash, condition and deep condition and I do a Protein treatment. Then I braid my hair and I moisturize and seal every other day.
What are your Holy Grail products?
I love ORS Oil moisturizer, Coconut oil and Tresemme Naturals conditioner.
