What was the worst part of your journey? And the best part? The hardest part of my journey was finding products and hairstyles that I liked but I managed. The best part was I wasn’t alone in my journey I had so much support so the transition was much easier for me.
What did your hair journey teach you?
Where can I begin; on my hair journey I learned so much, but the most important thing is that I learned to recognize beauty in its truest form, instead of what society shows as beauty..
Describe your worst hairdo and your best hairdo.
I have yet to find the best hair do still working on that, but my worse hair do was when I went on my honeymoon to the Dominican Republic and forgot all my products my hair was so dry and looked and felt like a Brillo pad…
Looking Back, has your perception of your hair or black hair in general changed? Please elaborate.
Looking back my perception of black has really changed. Growing up I thought black hair was “bad hair” and relaxers was a medicine to treat the “bad hair”. It wasn’t until I started seeing people like Lauren Hill, Jill Scott, and Erika Badu rocking their natural hair proud and looking so beautiful with it, that I started to see the beauty of black hair. I wanted to go natural for a long time before I actually did it, but I was in high school and I still cared about what people would say..it wasn’t until I was 22 that I said enough is enough. I had more Haters than supporters but I didn’t care because being Natural to me is being free…
What is your favorite hairstyle?
