My Name is Karla Thomas. I live in Durham, North Carolina and I am a Business Analyst for a Fortune 500 Company.
I feel I have what it takes to become Miss NP09 because I embrace and love my Natural Hair. I have been natural for 6 years now. I can not even fathom going back to relaxer. My hair is the healthiest and strongest it has ever been since I was a little girl.
I also feel I have what it takes to become Miss NP09 because I take the time to educate not only African American women/men but other races on natural hair. I constantly suggest natural hair products you can purchase at local stores or how to create your own at home to my friends and family. I also suggest hair styles and daily/weekly maintenance and grooming tips to keep your hair healthy.
Natural hair is not a passing fad to me. My kinky, coily, natural hair is what God has bless me with. I feel it’s my responsibility to find out as much as I can and share with others on how to maintain it and keep it healthy. Natural hair is nothing to be ashamed of having and Good Hair is definitely healthy hair.
Thank you for your time,
