Simeko on Challenge 1

Simeko Watkins-HartleyAlthough I think both Natasha and Jalita captured this challenge with their photos,  my choice winner for Challenge 1 is Carlie M!  Although her photos were not as creative, I think she really captured the essence of what it really means to go and stay natural when she said “The only difference is I now love my hair.  It would appear that my love and self confidence are what people are reacting to and mirroring.  If you walk around ashamed of your hair, people will mirror your self-doubt.  If you wear it proud and love it, they will shower you with love and positive reaction.  The main ingredient is YOU.”  And she has NO chemicals in her hair, ie relaxer, color, etc.  I often get asked as a professional natural hair care stylist;
