Q: Where are you from and how is the natural scene there?
A: I was born in Switzerland and I was raised in New York, however I currently live in Atlanta, Georgia. In my opinion, I find the natural hair scene in Metro Atlanta to be very spread out overall. There are many pockets where you see many women with natural hair and then many other areas, where the scene seems to be more scarce.
Q. How has your experience been with natural hair?
A: I’ve worn my hair natural all my life and most people around me are natural.
Q: In your opinion, what has been some of the best things about having natural hair?
A: I have many things that I love about my natural hair. For one, I am thankful that my natural hair grows fast. Secondly it’s a relief not having to worry about things that are chemical based products (your typical relaxers etc.) and the damage it can do to my hair.
Q: What is your weekly hair routine?
A: Overall, I have been keeping my hair conditioned a lot more than I shampoo it. The conditioning portion is very important to me, since it helps in keeping my hair soft and detangled.
Q: What advice would you give someone who was thinking of going natural?
A: Go for it! Don’t wait, just be yourself and be beautiful!
Q: Do you have any final thoughts?
A: I would like to share with your audience that I am the owner of Zenzele.us (natural hair and body products), so feel free to check out my website!
