Q. Where are you from and how is the natural scene there?
Q. Did you transition to natural hair? If so, what were your experiences?
A. Since I don’t believe in prolonging the inevitable, I never transitioned. I must admit that I have gone back and forth between relaxed hair to natural hair for the last 4 years. I got my first relaxer in the 4th grade and wore it until college. One day I grabbed my roommate and made her chop off my hair. It was just so liberating and doing that made me fall in love with my hair all over again. After the big chop, I have to share that I did go out and purchase a lot of big earrings to help me adjust to having no hair.
A. I have more time in my day which has been great! I never realized how much time I spent on using heat and keeping salon appointments. My hair is complimented often (even from strangers). I feel there is such a powerful confidence that I exude through my natural beauty after I cut my hair off.
A. I swear by the entire Carol’s Daughter hair care line. I use their Black Vanilla Leave In Conditioner and the Honey Hair Mimosa pomade. Those are great for every day use. I shampoo with Creme of Nature and love how soft my hair feels. I recently discovered Kinky Curly’s Curling Custard.

A. Do it! It’s one of the best decisions you’ll ever make.
