Meet LaShon James-Major, a coily girl from Long Beach, CA.
NC: What are your must-have products and tools?
LJM: My must-have products are coconut oil and shea butter. My must-have tools are my tangle teezer and my terrycloth towel that I use to dry my hair.
NC: What are your favorite hairstyles to wear with your curls?
LJM: I love wash-and-gos and buns.
NC: What do you do at nighttime for your hair?
LJM: My nighttime routine depends on how I feel and on how I've styled my hair that day. Whatever I do involves either a satin bonnet or pillowcase.
NC: What about your hair stylists?
LJM: I see a stylist for trims and natural hairstyles that I can't do myself.
NC: What reaction did you get when you first decided to go natural?
LJM: I didn't really have any reactions to my decision. My husband just noticed that I was playing with my hair more than usual, but he's pretty laid back, so he didn't care either way.
NC: Did you big chop or transition and for how long? Did you ever have curly girl insecurities?
LJM: I transitioned for two years before I cut off the remaining two inches about a year ago.
