Transitioning Beauty of the Week
How long have you been transitioning and what made you decide to do so?
I decided to go natural after 5 months of research and attending events. I actually did my final Big Chop because I really wanted to make sure that relaxer was out of my hair. Since then, the transition has been amazing.
If your hair had its own personality, how would you describe it?
My Natural Hair personality is Crazy, Sexy and Cool.
What is your hair regimen and what are your hair care essentials?
Every two weeks, I shampoo and condition with TRESemme Natural Nourishing Moisture. After I'm done washing, I comb by adding Cantu Shea butter daily oil moisturizer. Then I braid my hair with Super Duper Hydrating Hair Cream by Karen Body Beautiful.
What has been the best and hardest part of your natural hair journey?
Embrace your natural roots and be patient because it will grow. Stop staring at the mirror and ask yourself when your hair is going to grow. Trust me, it will grow. Just be patient and don't be overwhelmed about what people have to say about your hair.
Who is your hair icon, and why?
I have so many natural hair icons from YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. They all inspired me by giving good tips and information on how to take care of my natural hair. I'm very proud of the natural communities and what they're doing for us Natural Women and Men.
