How long have you been natural?
1 year and 11 months. Mid way through June will mark my 2 year natural hair journey.
Describe your hair
I have 4C hair that is kinky but soft.
How did you feel about your hair growing up?
My mum started relaxing my hair when I was 7. I always hated the idea of having natural hair until recently. This is because I was used to having straight relaxed hair.
What made you embrace your natural hair?
After years of relaxing my hair I noticed how thin my hair was becoming. This was devastating for me because I have always had thick hair. Once I went natural I begun to appreciate my texture a lot more.
What is your hair routine?
I wash and condition my hair once a week. I alternate between Cantu products and Shea moisture products(specifically Shea Moisture JBCO Strengthen and Grow Shampoo and Shea Moisture JBCO Strengthen, Grow and Restore Conditioner). I style my hair in a protective style weekly(two strand twists). I recently started to deep condition my hair on a weekly basis.
One product you can’t live without?
Shea Moisture JBCO Strengthen, Grow & Restore Conditioner
The worst hair advice you’ve ever received?

What’s one piece of advice you’d give to someone who is struggling to embrace their natural hair.
Embrace your natural hair because it’s beautiful regardless of how long or short it is. Natural hair has such a unique texture that makes it stand out for all the right reasons.
