How long have you been transitioning and what made you decide to do so?
I have been natural all of my life... :)
If your hair had its own personality, how would you describe it?
Her personality would be wild and free with a bit of crazy! She would be outgoing, full of life, and fabulous. She would be full of love and open to the movements of life.
What is your hair regimen and what are your hair care essentials?
My hair regimen is as follows... I comb my hair out in the shower; I deep condition it with plant extracts, essential oils, peppermint, and Irish moss seaweed. I then let it air dry (no towel drying because it dries the hair out), and lastly I sleep on a silk pillowcase.
What has been the best and hardest part of your natural hair journey?
The best part of my natural hair journey is the feeling of being free. I feel amazing when I embrace everything about myself. The hardest part was realizing that my hair is unique to me, and that I need to appreciate it for everything that it is!
Who is your hair icon, and why?
Lisa Bonet, solely because her hair is absolutely stunning!
