How long have you been natural?
"Overall, I've been natural for 23 years. I wore my hair as a straight natural (shout out to the hot comb) until I was 18. I experimented with chemicals during college and have been heat and chemical free since 2011."
Did you transition or big chop?
"I transitioned with buns, braidouts, and the occasional wig. Looking back at old photos I know I should've big chopped."
What is/was your favorite part about being/going natural?
"My favorite part of being natural is the volume. I feel like my hair is a physical representation of my personality."
What products are you loving at the moment?
"My favorite thing right now is to mix an assortment of oils (sweet almond, grapeseed, jojoba, castor, and coconut oil) and leave them on overnight as a hot oil treatment about once a month. If I do this regularly I see a significant decrease in single strand knots, shedding, breakage, and more slip."
