Where are you from and how is the natural scene there? I am from Houston, Texas which is the home of big hair and weave. However, it does seem to be changing…or maybe I have been noticing naturals more since I’ve gone natural.
Did you transition to natural hair? If so, what were your experiences? I transitioned for close to five months. I really loved the experience from the beginning. I finally felt free – from all the chemicals and I must add that I look fly or at least I think so!
Did you have any support? I didn’t have any support. Not from friends or family – no one at all. As I mentioned before Houston is the home of weave. My mom said I needed to comb my nappy hair. My husband didn’t say anything which means he didn’t like it. He wouldn’t dare say I looked bad though. LOL!
In your opinion, what has been one of the best things about having natural hair? The best thing is not having to spend alot of time thinking about my hair. Another benefit to going natural is I don’t have to worry about Houston’s humidity or going swimming with the kids.
Has there been any differences in your life from going natural? Yes, I feel much more confident. I have more time in my day and I am also taking better care of my daughter’s hair which is so beautiful (she gets so many compliments).
If you were stranded on a deserted island and had to choose 3 items for your hair, what are three things you would have to have for your hair and why? I basically wear wash ‘n go, twists, or twist outs.For products I would require, Water Come Clean shampoo (leaves my hair feeling clean without stripping it) Curly Magic or Kinky Curly (makes my curls pop)
What advice would you give someone who was thinking of going natural? The sooner you do it, the quicker you will get that healthy, long, thick, luscious hair that you are dreamming of.
Do you have any final words? Shout out to Uncle Funky’s Daughter in Houston. I love this place!
