I can say, honestly, that natural hair is the love that found me. I began by locking my own and my friends’ hair, experimenting with different products styles and techniques, but i didnt think about doing hair professionally until another friend, who had completed hair school, suggested I do so.
Although natural hairstyling was not at all a part of the curriculum, I got into natural hairstyling when I was in barber school. I would say the more compelling reason, however, was starting to question why I chemicalized my hair at all, and concluding that I did so to conform to a European standard of beauty.
